Fable III to release alongside controller-tattoo bundle

As per tradition, Microsoft is celebrating the launch of a new iteration of one of its biggest Xbox franchises by introducing a limited edition controller. Unlike some we've seen for other titles, however, this one actually looks cool.

When it comes to releasing Limited Edition controllers to celebrate its biggest games, the Xbox accessory creators have either went extremely understated (releasing a red controller around the time of Gears of War 2's launch) or too over-the-top (the Todd McFarlane murals slapped on Halo 3 controllers). It looks as though the company has finally found a happy medium in the form of the Fable III controller shown above. In addition to the controller, the US$60 package will also include a download code for a free in-game tattoo. Given the tribal tat design employed by the controller, we're assuming the in-game ink will have a similar look.
