Sea of Thieves may still be a month away, but for some reason Microsoft has opted to release the Limited Edition Sea of Thieves Xbox One Wireless Controller this week, a little ahead of the game's actual launch.

While the controller has been up for pre-order for a little while now, it was a bit of a pricey thing with an RRP of £64.99. Thankfully, the controller's launch has brought a £10 price drop and you can now order yourself one of these Sea of Thieves controllers for £54.99. Sure, it's not the biggest discount in the world, but it's nice to see a price cut on the week of release if nothing else.

One of the more curious Sea of Thieves tie-ins so far, however, is the official Seagate 2TB 'Game Drive' which is basically an external hard drive with a custom paint job - and a rather nice one at that. That will cost you £79.99 and work on Xbox One, PC, or any other system that is compatible with external drives.

Odd licencing choices aside, I've known plenty of people who baulked at the £65 price point on the Sea of Thieves controller who are now considering it, so this was perhaps a wise move from retailers to shift the probably-countless units of stock for this controller. Only time will tell if we'll be seeing this pad discounted further around Black Friday time, though.
