    i think the controller looks awesome, love the colors, love the d-pad always liked the bulk size and weight...the only problem ive ever had with the 360 controller is that the sticks arent even and with long ass fingers like me playing games like skate,nhl,fifa...anything that involves precise movement i screw up all the time...could just be me but i would love the sticks evened out

    Gameinformer gave a review of this controller and they said that there is no noticeable difference between this D-pad and the regular one neither offers up enough precision. after hearing that I gotta test this thing before I buy it.

    Never had an issue with the current controller. Definitely will not buy this unless it becomes cheaper and my current controllers bite the dust. Can't see that happening anytime soon.

    To me, the D-pad is really the only thing holding the 360 controller back from being the perfect controller. So if this new D-pad works the way we want it to, then I'll be in heaven. I also like the button colors, when you look close you can see they are white, light gray, dark gray, and black. It's a pretty sharp looking controller and I cant wait to get one. It only costs 65$ with the play & charge kit, which is the same price as the regular P&C kit controllers so there's no reason not to go for it if you're looking to get a new controller.

    Well this is cool and all but... I would rather have them spend some money and time on the problem of the red rings, mine broke down twice already.

    my brother got the charger kit and the charger stopped working after about a month and he couldn't take it back. we shouldn't have been surprised since xbox's always stopped working fast.

    at least they just didn't make a special 4 way controller for people who seem to care about this "D-pad nonsense" I would only buy it cause of the cool color scheme.

    Am I the only one who couldn't even see a difference between the two options? Mr. Microsoft in the video did absolutely nothing to actually show how the D-Pad changed.

    Um the 360's controller may fit better in your hand than the PS3 but with this upgrade I don't care about the d-pad I want it to be much simpler and not have a massive battery pack sticking out the back. It needs to be uniform with built in batteries and can be easily plugged into a 360 with say a uniform USB cable like the PS3

    Finlay, I have been trashing the 360 d-pad forever. I want to get my hands on one to test though before next year. This controller will be what decides if i get Mortal Kombat for PS3 (always played MK on PlayStaton systems) or if i swap to the 360.
