January 5, 2009 - We're not particularly sure why, but Microsoft Japan made its first order of business in 2009 to announce a limited edition red colored controller for the 360.
The "Wireless Controller (Limited Edition Red) Play & Charge Pack" (that's the full name you'll have to give to shops if you want to import this thing) bundles a wireless 360 controller with a Play & Charge Kit. The big attraction is that everything has a deep red color.
The bundle is due on March 5, with pricing set at 6,279 yen. This would be about 500 yen less than buying the controller and the Play & Charge Kit separately, except that the red-colored units will not be available outside of the bundle.
