At the end of the day, the new Xbox 360 controller with a transforming d-pad is largely the same as preceding models, just slightly better. The new d-pad alleviates some of its previous issues, but isn't quite perfect, and smaller tweaks to the thumbsticks and finish make the design a little more ergonomically friendly. But more than anything else, Microsoft isn't charging players for these improvements – the controller is still $64.99 with the bundled play-and-charge system. Who are we to complain? quote

If you play a ton of fighting games or just loathe the Xbox 360 d-pad, you will dig this controller. I just hope you don't already have a bunch of them.

This controller almost solves EVERY complaint I had with the prior versions of the controller: slightly slick material that needed improvement, buttons that fail and aren't crisp enough, and a soft/floating D-pad. And as you may notice, this version is quite stylish!
