What would be really slick, is if you already had the FFXIII-themed PS3 that came out along with the Japanese release of the game back in December, then you can put the controller with the system and, by their power combined….er, well…it would just look cool. The Asian relaunch of FFXIII is approaching, so Square-Enix and Sony have come up with another bundle for the game, which should come as no surprise to anyone. This time, though, the bundle includes a controller styled after the original FFXIII PS3.
As you can kind of see in the image above (it’s small, I know), the controller is white with an outlined image of the game’s lead character, Lightning, on the right hand grip, similar to the PS3 of the same design. You want? It’ll run you about $90US once it’s available to import. It also comes with the Asian edition of Final Fantasy XIII (Hong Kong/Taiwan version).
