With the Xbox One fast approaching, the Xbox 360 is now facing the end times of its natural life cycle. Microsoft is celebrating a successful eight years of the 360’s life span by releasing a new stand-alone gold version of its Chrome series 360 controller. The Chrome series controller saw its release last year, and featured a chrome finish and a transforming d-pad.
The shiny new gold controller will only be available in a small amount of stores in the US, including a number of GameStops and Microsoft Stores. The controller will retail for $55 like its predecessor controllers, and will begin shipments this August.
