Batman Batarang Xbox & PS3 Controllers: Coming To E3 2011

At OSM we love to report on all the different types of games consoles out there as well as the input devices that go with them. Recent reports include the speculation around the new Wii perhaps having screens on their controllers, the new PS3 official Dual-Shock 3 candy blue controller/dock and of course the Razer Onza Xbox 360 pads.

Now we have some new ones to talk to you about that are coming to E3 2011 and they are the Batman Batarang controllers for the Xbox 360 and PS3. We learned of them through an article over on Engadget by Sean Buckley who says that in true traditional Batman gadget style they have cheesy bat-aesthetics.

Both the Xbox and PS3 controller made by Power-A and feature the same button layout with the Xbox 360 style being favored. Of the two pads the PS3 one seems to be slightly better as it has an internal battery making it wireless with a detachable cable. The Xbox 360 controller has been kept simple and uses a cable. Both of these bad boys has a range of colors that the LEDs around the soft grips can be, we actually really like the design of these devices from Power-A.

From the official press release we can see that the controllers will be released in conjunction with the game on October 18th 2011. As far as pricing goes the PS3 pad will be priced at $39.99 and the Xbox 360 pad will retail at $49.99.
