Rumor has it that Microsoft isn’t done “refreshing” its Xbox 360 hardware. Next on the docket is a redesign of the controller, specifically the d-pad.
In the five years since the launch of the Xbox 360, the single complaint that’s been leveled against the controller is regarding the d-pad. If Joystiq’s source is to be believed, then the new d-pad will rotate 90 degrees into a more raised position. This should give fighting game fans better control, at least in theory.
Personally, the Xbox 360 controller is my all time favorite game controller. The Dreamcast’s controller is a close second. What’s yours?
