Europe Gets Red 360 Controller In Time For Resident Evil 5

Microsoft cleverly ties-in existing product to a major game release, timing the European debut of the red Xbox 360 controller to coincide with the release of Resident Evil 5.

In a clever bit of release scheduling magic, the same limited-edition red Xbox 360 controller and play and charge kit that has been sitting on North American shelves since November 2nd will be hitting Europe on March 13th, day and date with the release of Resident Evil 5 and the special red Xbox 360 game bundle. So while the controller has nothing at all to do with Resident Evil 5, it's still red, and that old white controller you've been using is looking so very dated.

The red Xbox 360 controller bundle will be available in the UK and Europe a week from Friday for £39.99.
