Coming up alongside the Titanfall launch on March 11th, Microsoft will ship a companion limited edition controller for the Xbox One first-person shooter from EA and Respawn Entertainment.

The design and art teams at Xbox and Respawn collaborated on the controller’s development, a design intended to represent “a piece of military spec hardware transported from the universe of Titanfall and into players hands.” More specifically, the controller was created to look like the C-101 carbine used in the game by elite Titan pilots. A piece of military hardware isn’t exactly the first thing that comes to mind when I see the controller, but I don’t care because it sure is one slick, futuristic-looking gamepad nonetheless.

The Titanfall controller is now available for US pre-order on the Microsoft online store for $64.99. No, you didn’t misread that value; the controller is more expensive than the game itself.

But hey, if you don’t have the scratch to buy one head over to Major Nelson’s blog, where the Xbox Live maestro is giving away two of the controllers.
