Got this in the mail today, pretty excited about it (although I probably wont hold onto it for long). Its an early Xbox 360 controller, which, unlike the OurColony.net prototype which had a white button, lacks any guide button. It has the prototype buttons, with the white accent marks, along with the white dpad. Joysticks are obviously black. The back and start buttons lack the indentations on the buttons themselves, as do the shoulder buttons. The whole controller is a glossy white finish, unlike the mat, almost-offwhite finish of the retail controller. The bottom by the microphone is white plastic, unlike the grey of the retail, and has a black microphone jack, along with a black wire. The date on the controller is March 18th, 2005, so its quite early.
