    Rumor: Microsoft prepping new Xbox 360 controller with improved d-pad for the holiday



    We've got it on good authority that sometime this Holiday season, Microsoft will launch a new Xbox 360 controller with a rather unique d-pad. According to our trusted source, when one rotates the d-pad ninety degrees on this new controller, it'll raise up about a quarter of an inch -- a modification apparently revealed to be targeted at fighting game fans.

    Could it be a version of that nifty (yet ugly) European controller tie-in for Pro Evo 2009? Will it replace the new Xbox 360 S controller (pictured above)? Or will it be a separate, special controller? We've got plenty of questions and will try to dig up some more info, so stay tuned. And, as always, if you're in the know, feel free to drop us a line. Anonymity assured!

    I hope they make a few more improvements than that. A 1/4 inch raise on the d-pad doesn't sound like something I'd want to shell another $50 out for lol.

    They need to make the controller lighter.
