RUMOUR: Microsoft redesining Xbox 360 Controller

Posted By | On 31st, Aug. 2010

We all know just how… terrible, terrible the D-Pad of the Xbox 360 controller is, and while I do agree that the all new Xbox 360 S controller looks too sexy and sleek to be a controller, the D-Pad still needs work. You know why? Because clicky buttons FTW, not squishy buttons, and squishy buttons is what the 360 Controller has.

Anyway, Joystiq has revealed via ‘trusted sources’  that Microsoft is developing an all new controller for the Xbox 360, in which the D-Pad, once rotated 90 degrees, will raise up about a quarter of an inch. This new nifty feature is targetted especially at Fighter fans.

Nothing else is known as of now. Not even if this is official or not.
