Bleeding Edge TV 613: Gears of War Xbox One Elite Controller Review

As a follow-up to the Gears of War 4 custom Xbox One S console that I showed you the other day, here's a look at the limited edition Gears of War 4 Xbox One Elite Wireless controller! This is the very first custom Elite controller that Microsoft has released for the Xbox One, and as you can see, the design is super unique, and very much Gears of War-themed through and through. You get everything you'd find on the standard Elite controller, like the paddles on the back, removable thumbsticks and d-pad, and super-solid build. It costs $50 more than the regular Elite controller, and what you are paying for there is the Gears of War 4 design, because functionally  the two controllers are exactly the same. What do you think? Would you pick up a $200 Xbox controller?

Unboxing Live 197: Gears of War 4 Limited Edition Xbox One S console

Microsoft has released the Xbox One S Gears of War 4 limited edition console, and I think it's the most impressive game console release to date from a design perspective. I give you a look at the custom red Xbox One S with Gears of War 4 design elements in this episode. As you can see, aside from the battle worn look, you have the deep laser etching for the claw marks on both the Xbox One S console itself, as well as the included Gears of War 4 controller. Microsoft did a fantastic job!

Technics 1200g

If you talk to DJs both old and new about the Technics 1200 turntable, you'll quickly realize just how legendary the deck truly was. Last year, Panasonic revived the Technics brand, and customers the world over had one question: "Where's the 1200?" Passionate fans even went to far as to sign petitions to let Panasonic know that they wanted to see the iconic record player make a triumphant return. At CES 2016, they got their wish, as the Technics SL-1200G and SL-1200GAE were announced, and they've been improved over all of the previous models.

Limited edition Sonos Blue Note PLAY:1 celebrates 75 years of jazz

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Design, Home Entertainment, Music, Videos,

Sonos Blue Note Play:1

Sonos has announced a new, limited edition model of its Play:1 speaker in the Blue Note edition. Produced in collaboration with Blue Note Records, this Play:1 sports a gradient blue hue that strays from the typical white and black shades that Sonos has stuck to over the years. It's a way to commemorate the 75 years that the iconic jazz label has been in business. According to Sonos, painting the Play:1 this unique solor of light blue to navy was no simple task, requiring the use of robots and hand-painting to get the right look. The end result is what you see above. It'll cost you $249, which is a $50 premium over the standard Play:1, but with that you also get access to the exclusive Blue Note on Sonos radio station, with customized playlists from some of the best names in the jazz game. If you want one of the Blue Note Sonos Play:1 units, you'll likely have to act fairly quickly--the company is making only 4,100 of them. They'll be on sale on the Sonos Web site sometimes in the next few weeks.

We love this limited edition Titanfall controller for Xbox One

Xbox One Titanfall controller

Titanfall is one of the most anticipated games coming to the Xbox One this year, and developer Respawn Entertainment has teamed up with Microsoft on a special edition Titanfall Xbox One controller. As you can see in the image above, the Titanfall controller features custom artwork that pays homage to the game (although, to my eyes, it reminds me more of the Wipeout racing game series.)

"In a collaborative effort with the Xbox design team and the Respawn art department our goal was to create a controller that feels as if it is a piece of military spec hardware transported from the universe of Titanfall and into players hands," said Joel Emslie, lead artist at Respawn Entertainment.

To be clear, this is a standard Xbox One controller--it doesn't do anything extra that other controllers don't do--it just has the unique art styling and coloring. You can pre-order the Titanfall controller now, as well as the Titanfall game. Both will be available on March 11th.

For other special editions, check out the Xbox One I Made This edition console and controller.

Coco Rocha in Zac PosenRemember how jealous you were when you saw Coco Rocha get married in a custom Zac Posen gown? Fortunately, the New York-based designer is finally giving us commoners the chance to be like the supermodel and say "I do" in one of his creations.

Posen will launch his first bridal collection - which includes formal attire in addition to wedding gowns - exclusively through retailer David's Bridal.

"We brainstormed for several months because we had a very successful launch with Vera [Wang]. As always, we were looking for what's next... We were talking about dramatic red-carpet movie-star kind of looks, and Zac came to mind," said Catalina Maddoz, executive vice president of merchandizing at David's Bridal.

Six wedding gowns - priced between $850-$1,350 - and five "social occasion" pieces - ranging between $195-$225 - are expected to appear at limited stores and online in February 2014.
