Pre-order 360 controller with transforming D-pad for $52

Got your eye on one of those new Xbox 360 controllers with the magical, transforming D-pad, but not willing to pony up the dough? Good news, because Buy.com has the controllers up for pre-order for $52 with free shipping, saving $13 and saving your fat wallet from transforming into an empty one.

It's worth noting that the controller isn't actually supposed to be released until November 9, while Buy.com lists it as in stock, noting that it usually ships in one business day. The listing definitely refers to the transforming D-pad though, so the deal appears legit and offers a significant discount over the standard $65 price.
