What goes great with a brand new Xbox 360 you ask, a brand new beefed up version of your classic xbox 360 controller I say. Microsoft confirmed today that as of November 9th their newly remodelled controller will be available with a play and charge kit for $64.99. Some note worthy features that have been upgraded go as follows.
– A sleek new grey matte finish to match appropriately with the new console.
– Button colour has been changed to a grey scale
– The analog sticks have been reworked with more of a concave feel and design.
– *With a simple twist of the d-pad you can take the buttons from the current disc like style, too more of a classic old school d-pad feel*
Definitely not reinventing the wheel on this one, but all of these features will be well received by consumers, and its always nice to get new shiny things.
Update: The D- pad is still using the same pivot technology, but it just feels better to have the + section raised, patent issues are the reason for a totally renewed D-pad
So, basically, they have replaced the D-pad with the arcade one and changed the colours…. I think I am ok with my current one…
nice try Microsoft….
