Disney and PDP to release Tron and Mickey inspired controllers

Disney and peripheral maker PDP have teamed up to release some rather unique looking controllers based on Epic Mickey and Tron.

The Wii controller for Epic Mickey is shaped like a paint brush, obviously, as the whole point of the game is to go around painting the world.

Those who purchase the paint brush controller will also get a statue/charger, featuring the nasty Ink Blot that Mickey battles in the game.

Controllers for Tron are rather unique, and sport a blue neon light making sure you’ll never lose your Wii, Xbox 360 or PS3 peripheral should you decide to play the game in the dark.

We aren’t sure if these controllers are to be released anywhere other than the US at the moment, but you could always import if you are quite taken with one.

You can see the controllers for yourself below.

    Looks cool, but wired controllers for the 360 and PS3? Uh, no thanks.

    tron control design = win , but wired controls = epic fail, in other words although the tron controls are the most bad ass looking controls i’ve ever seen, but them being wired is the worse fucking thing EVER

    @3 Wired is last generation. No thank you.

    Real gamers use something that is new first of all.

    Odd… the PS3 one does look of a lower quality. The dpad and thumb sticks in particular look a bit cheapo. The other two Tron controllers look great, very stylish. Shame about the wires, although I guess that’s the price to pay for having illuminated strips on it… that’d surely burn down the already limited battery life on a wireless even faster.

    These were on the show floor at E3, so I snapped a picture of them, housed in their sexy glass cases.

    I assumed they were only for show. It’s pretty cool to see this are intended for retail, even if they’re wired.
