Microsoft held an Xbox Summit in Tokyo on Monday and shared some details regarding the Xbox 360 accessories and the Xbox 360 game box designs. IGN writes Microsoft didn't allow the press to take pictures, but they were able to take a closer look at these devices. IGN claims the new Xbox 360 controller is the best controller since the Sega Saturn 6-button pad.

The boxes for Xbox 360 games will resemble the current Xbox generation boxes, green DVD cases with a paper cover insert holding the Xbox 360 logo.

Here's a list of accessories that were displayed:
  • Wireless controller
  • Memory Unit (includes case)
  • Rechargeable Battery Pack
  • Play & Charge Kit
  • Quick Charge Kit
  • Wireless Network Adapter
  • Hard Drive
  • Universal Media Remote
  • S-Video AV Cable
  • VGA HD AV Cable
  • Component HD AV Cable
  • Face Plates
  • IGN was a bit surprised by the size of the Xbox 360 HDD in accessory form. They say you actually have to buy the entire top part of the console, rather than a little attachment. More details at IGN
