New Chrome Xbox Controllers

Are you tired of playing with the same old Xbox 360 controller, but you don't want to buy a 3rd party controller or a specific-game-related one? Here's your chance! Major Nelson announced on his blog today that in May, Microsoft will sell new "Chrome" controllers in blue, red, and silver.

In addition to fun colors, the controllers will also offer a new d-pad, something Xbox 360 fans have been wanting since 2006.

Controllers will cost $55, and sadly, the colors will vary by region. Contact your preferred retailer to see which colors they will have, or just go to Amazon and preorder the one you want when that opens up. You know it will.

If I didn't just get a new Mass Effect-themed controller, I'd be all over the blue one.
