Subject: Microsoft redesigns the 360 d-pad.
Via Gamasutra there's news from Major Nelson that Microsoft is revising their 360 pad with a new d-pad, a change that was sorely needed (NFGcontrols review).  A real d-pad change too, not a half-assed maybe-not fix like last time.

Finally.

Here's a video where he explains the new, somewhat bizarre change you see above:


I'm not entirely convinced this is the right solution to what has been a fairly pathetic failure on MS' part.  I mean, when the original d-pad lets me down I don't think "If only it were taller".  Let's hope it works.

I'm entertained by the whole vibe of "now the fighting game fans can properly get their fight on". Any fighting game fan worth a damn would buy an arcade stick.
PS: "I'm used to playing on a SNES pad" moaners will automatically qualify for a smack in the mouth.
