Modern Warfare 2 controller is coming

Modern Warfare 2 is going to have its own branded controller.

Sorry, don't expect anything like this. Joystiq

Whether or not you actually want one, Joystiq is reporting that Infinity Ward (the developer behind most of the Call of Duty franchise) is helping design a branded controller to coincide with the release of Modern Warfare 2.

However, while you'll be able to purchase actual working night goggles with the Prestige Edition of the game, early details suggest this new device won't look much different from a normal video game controller.


Sure, it's nice to have peripherals made exclusively for playing with specific games, but what's the incentive to get a special controller when in fact there's nothing special about it at all?

What do you think? Do you have a soft spot for branded controllers? Tell us below.

Modern Warfare 2 will be released on November 10.
