New Xbox 360 headset, media remote out this year

Microsoft has redesigned the Xbox 360’s media remote and wireless headset to match the console’s own refresh last summer. Both have a new look in line with the S model’s black sleekness.

Xbox Live’s director of programming Larry Hryb delivered the news on his blog, saying both the remote and headset will hit shelves worldwide in early November. Just in time for the holiday rush.

The headset comes with a price tag of $59.99 and is Bluetooth enabled, meaning it can also be used it with phones and PCs should you so choose.

The new media remote will go for a more reasonable $19.99.
