New controller for Xbox 360 unveiled

Posted by yoMcLovin on September 2, 2010

(CNN) — Microsoft will be offering up a new Xbox 360 wireless controller starting this fall that features an adjustable directional-control pad (D-pad).

Larry Hryb, programming director for Xbox Live, revealed the new controller Tuesday on his blog.

Hryb, known more commonly by his gamer tag, Major Nelson, shows in a video how the adjustable D-pad will work.

With a twist of the wrist, the D-pad goes from flat to a raised plus controller.

Hryb said the design was in response to many gamers who didn’t like the feel of theXbox’s current D-pad. Engineers came up with a solution that was designed to give options for those who wanted a better feel, he said.

The controller’s colored buttons also are gone in favor of gray A, B, X and Y buttons.

Concave analog sticks and a matte silver finish complete the transformation for the new wireless controller.

The new device will not be included in console sales and is only available with the new Play & Charge Kit that will launch on November 9 for $64.99.

The Play & Charge Kit includes a rechargeable battery pack, which allows gamers to lose disposable batteries currently used to power the controllers.
