The Xbox 360 controller, arguably the greatest dual analog controller, is inching closer to perfection with an upcoming d-pad redesign. The new d-pad will sport an eight way input instead of the four way input used now. IGN UK have said it’s proving to be more ‘tactile’ with a larger rocker supporting the d-pad.
Fighting game fans, like myself, welcome the change as the current Xbox 360 d-pad is just awful for those kinds of games. Now we just need a way to distinguish between old models and new models. Oh, and pricing and availability would also be nice.
