Ugly Controller Confirmed for PES

59 second read

Green PES Controller

So the rumours were up and about yesterday saying that Microsoft had finally accepted that the current 360 D-Pad was shocking and was about to release a new controller with a much improved D-Pad.

Well the rumours were half true, the above picture ugly controller does in fact sport a brand new (and rumoured to be vastly better) D-Pad, it is also about to go on sale as of the 24th of October.

However only in Europe, Latin America and Asian and only for a limited amount of time. The reason for the new controller is PES 2009.

Since the preferred tool for virtual footballers is the D-Pad it doesn’t come as any suprise that a football game will be getting the controller. But I have to wonder why they are making this a limited release?

Hopefully it’s just the terrible green colour that is the limited release and all new 360 controllers will receive the improved D-Pad.

    Apparently Microsoft also had the new street fighter in mind when making it.
    I would have like them to change their dpad completely, the dpad is the only thing I prefer on my ps3 control

    The reason MS’s d-pad has historically been so kak is, apparently, because Sony and Nintendo own all the patents on the decent d-pad designs. MS has probably spent several months conceiving of this new design whilst tiptoeing arounf a lawsuit. Either way, it’s about bloody time.

    As for Street Fighter, you cannot consider yourself a serious player if you don’t intend to get a joystick, anyways…

    I was wondering why the MS d-pad is a round-single-piece unit. Doesn’t make any sense but if there are patents then that would explain it.
