X360 D-pad Redesign
« on: August 20, 2008, 11:04:43 PM »
Apparently there's a new Xbox 360 controller that was shown at GC that has a redesigned d-pad for things like fighting games (SFIV) which, obviously, benefits shooting games as well. Too bad the location is still the same; it would have been better if they'd switched positions with the left stick. No U.S. release planned yet either... :(

Gamespy's take

It's better than nothing I suppose and wont make your wallet cry like the Hori stick.

Moved to the console forums.

Very cool if true, the stock X360 pad is so awful it's not even funny.

This silver controller new dpad is out now in US. It's forced in a play'n'charge bundle and on sale at US amazon.

Any high level players try it?
