Default Which controller to keep?

I snagged a Halo 4 edition Xbox 360 and was planning to give my old system to a friend as a gift so we could play a few games that aren't on the PS3 or PC. He's gonna get the 2nd copy of Halo 4 and the headset (I already have a good headset and the game).

Anyhow, I have the UNSC Halo 4 controller and obviously the new system comes with two Halo 4 themed controllers that look different. Should I keep the UNSC one and give him one of the other ones or keep both the ones that come with the system and give him the UNSC controller? Below are pictures of both but I cannot decide which looks cooler. If it matters, the ones that come with the system match the system much better. This is probably a very superficial question but I'd like opinions lol.

One that comes with the system


UNSC controller I purchased separately

I have 3 of those too. 2 are old and worn out.

Guess I'll keep the ones that come new with the system.

I would keep the UNSC controller as well as one of the Halo 4 controllers, then give your friend a Halo 4 controller.
