That was the first/early design of the controller before the xbox was out.

In my opinion I don't think the green jewel looks too good.

guys guys guys,


this is the europeon controller.

australia and the rest of europe get this controller with the green jewel.

in my opinion it looks about twice as good as USA's one

and its an official controller not some dodgy one

Actually... I recently picked one up on E-Bay... ($5 over normal controller cost) and here's what I have found:

Most of the green Jeweled controllers were pre-release controllers (For demo systems at E3 or other events). They all have REALLY low serial numbers... in the 0 - 50,000 range. The controller cord is different, with the break away part being of a different design, and the controller itself is more dark grey than black.

if you find the controller with the serial number between #0-10 or #1337, then sell it on ebay for $500.

Thanks for the info. I was thinking that it was some type of
release thing.

Hey, I want one of these controllers! I can't find any on eBay. I don't know if I want the S controller when it comes out. I kinda like the bigger ones...

And what would be the significance of 1337?

Oh man, I just can't imagine how much some people would pay for controller no. 1337, that would be 5W337.
