Now that Ouya
development kits are out in the wild
, users have a few suggestions about its included controller. Responding to feedback (and changed already in progress), the team behind the Android-powered system has announced several changes
to the peripheral. First and foremost, the circular D-pad
has been replaced with cross-shaped pad, which should be a welcome change for games that require more precision.
Second, the analog sticks are now rubberized on top to allow for better grip. Furthermore, the touch pad's sensitivity has been improved, the triggers moved closer to the body of the controller and the battery compartment made more secure.
All of these improvements (and more, possibly) can be yours this April, when the consumer version of the Ouya is expected to launch.
