Gold chrome Xbox 360 controller coming in August

Microsoft will debut a new gold chrome Xbox 360 wireless controller this August for $54.99, Major Nelson announced today.

The gold controller, pictured above, will be available in the U.S. exclusively at Microsoft Stores and GameStop, as well as in "select regions" worldwide.

It will be the newest addition to Microsoft's Chrome Series line of shiny Xbox 360 controllers. The set debuted last spring with red, blue and silver controllers. Like all the company's recent Xbox 360 gamepads, the new gold controller will include a transforming D-pad.
