Independent Release of Limited Edition Fable III Controller Shows Respect for Cash-Strapped Gamers

DualShockers writes, "With the massive influx of limited edition game releases packaging exclusive but otherwise useless swag (Halo, Call of Duty, GoldenEye, and the list is only getting longer), Microsoft is taking a unique approach to getting cash-strapped gamers to throw in a few extra coins for unnecessary yet fantastically attractive accessories. Practically speaking, this approach seems to actually be a fairer and more respectful way to entice gamers.

While devoted fans will pick up Fable III regardless, its truly gracious for Microsoft to give loyalists the chance to purchase what they can, when they can.

I do quite like some of these custom pads - not this one in particular but the Halo Reach one was pretty cool.

I think this one looks a bit like vomit.

That's the exact description I had for it. It looks like someone hurled on it.

I kind of want this controller, actually. Been wanting to buy a new 360 controller for a while.

thevokillist3106d ago

Fable III Controller looks good and it's a good thing to be able to grab this without a pre-order bonus. I completely agree. More products should go in this direction.

awesome article i feel the same way. its sweet not to have to pay more than a hundred dollars for the LE which is what it would cost if the controller was bundled

i think this option to buy the bonus content independently shows confidence in the product and forces companies to put more effort in the stuff they want us to pay extra for.
