    Only a true American or an American Patriot will buy this!
    Edit:Sadly I’m a Filipino so I cannot buy this LOL!!

    Matte finished like the DualShock 3?

    • Aoshi00

      There were quite a few different finishes for all the LE controllers so far.. the Silver one and Modern Warfare 3 ones were matte, the Gears is semi-matte, the Halo one is transparent and glossy, Tomb Raider one was matte and rough, Star Wars gold one was glossy and fingerprint magnet.. I really like collecting special edition 360 controllers, but I’m not digging this one too much… my favorite one so far are Gears and Tomb Raider, very nice to hold..

      • Visa Vang

        I might get the Tomb Raider one. Since my hand is sweaty, matte finished controllers seems to do the job.

        • Aoshi00

          Yeah, matte definitely gives a better grip, but the Gears 3 one is pretty good, probably the closest finish to the Dual Shock 3.. from the picture this camo looks to have the same finish as Gears 3. The Halo 4 one was cool since it has a blue instead of green light.

          I love the TR one, always feel like touching the bandage and the scratches :) Too bad there’s no special controllers for the PS3 in the US.. I just use the white one since the black one was boring.. I wanted to import the Uncharted 3 one before but I didn’t like the design too much w/ the map and compass..

          • Visa Vang

            I already have the Gears 3 one. I just think that having extra controllers sitting around might be an good idea. Aside from the DS3 camo ver, I haven’t picked up anymore DS3s since I bought 2 of them on sale on the last Black Friday and one is barely used.

          • Aoshi00

            Yeah, good to know you have a spare if one is too worn out (Megaman or fighters would mess them up..) I like it better when the special design is associated w/ a specific game though.. usually camo goes w/ MGS3.. I always get excited about new controllers since you don’t need to buy a new system but it would still feel refreshing..

    I think this is not a good idea. More people will lose their controllers lol

      It’s so that if you buy a multiplatform title and fanboys come by and ask what version you are playing, you can tell everybody you are playing Kinect.

    And it even has an Assassins Creed logo camouflaged on the side. :|

  • Zonic505

    Ya know those third party controllers that try to have a bunch of options of colors/skins, yet aren’t up to quality like first party controllers? For some reason, I’m reminded of those when I see this.

  • That guy who hates Spike

    Cool lets get more console/controller colors.
    Play it Loud!

  • AnimusVox

    I may sound a bit biased but I like the Urban camou PS3 controller better, the look I mean.

  • SuperSailorV

    So if you read the inscription, “< AN-XBOX360", less than an Xbox 360?
