Pink and blue Xbox 360 controllers coming in November ... or October

Kevin Kelly

You might have heard by now that Microsoft announced a date for the *gasp* new pink and blue Xbox 360 controllers that we saw at E3. Well, here are even more photos of the pastel playthings for you to gawk at. Unfortunately the women holding the controllers don't come with them.

Even more unfortunately, when is this color madness going to stop? You've got the original Xbox 360 in eggshell white, the ebony Elite, the military green Halo 3 model (with multi-colored and graphic-ed controllers as well) ... so where will it all end? A color-changing mood 360? Heat-sensitive, thermal transfer model? Maybe a clear version. Or better yet, the invisible-I-swear-it's-around-here-somewhere-just-listen-for-the-loud-fan-and-feel-for-the-radiator-like-warmth version.

At any rate, we digress. Check out the pictures (courtesy of Engadget Japan) of the pink and blue Xbox 360 controllers, and pre-order some for your boy, or girl, today.

[Update: According to, the pink and darker blue controllers are hitting the US on October 2nd. If you've really got your heart set on that baby blue controller (it'll match our Ice Blue DS Lite!) you can pick one up in Japan on November 1.]
