Xbox 360 owners, you might soon have something worth bragging about compared to your Nintendo loving friends. Sure, they are going to go all out and purchase the Nintendo Wii U which will sport a display on the controller itself, which by the way is not the most original idea to date since the Sega Dreamcast already had such an attachment in the past. But I digress in this case of hardware semantics – the FCC has just gotten hold of the TurboFire EVO controller for the Xbox 360, and said controller has passed through the battery of tests with flying colors.

What makes the TurboFire EVO so special? For starters, how about a 1.7″ display right smack between the buttons and the D-pad? Also known as the “Combat Command” (for obvious reasons), the display delivers a visual interface that allows you to adjust controller settings such as speed, recoil, button mapping and rapid fire. Best to get the rest of your mates in on this, since you might feel a little bit awkward being the only one toting it around. Datel is carrying the TurboFire EVO for $55 a pop.
