All gamers know that controllers break down and stop working after hours upon hours of usage, but what if I told you that there was a controller out there that could handle all of that AND it was one of a kind, made just for you? Well, there is....
Gamers across all platforms have come across an ongoing problem within our hobby: CONTROLLERS BREAKING. If you’re anything like me, you’ve gone through a few dozen controllers throughout your gaming career and are SICK OF IT. That’s a lot of money that could’ve been put towards new games and even my Xbox Live subscription! However, I’ve gotten my hands on my very own Xbox Design Lab controller that I think is the solution to our problems. I know most of you are thinking that The Lab is purely for cosmetic customization, which is what it’s supposed to be, BUT I’ve found out that they can be much more than that.Read full story...
With New Transforming D-Pad!
Saw this over at http://www.xbox360achievements.org
Looks like Microsoft is finally listening to fighting game fans, and they are coming out with a new 360 controller with a transforming d-pad.
The new Xbox 360 controller will only ship with the new Play & Charge kit, and will be available in the US on November 9th, 2010 for $64.99. It'll then make the long journey to Europe in February 2011. Check out a vid and a couple pics below.
Are you getting one of these? Tell us what you think in the comments.
Do you you think you'll be ponying up for this new controller?
Lookin’ good, lookin good! I have the original Xbox Elite controller and I love it. The weight, the buttons, the interchangeable thumbsticks. I already thought it was a great controller, but this one definitely is making some improvements and I may be looking to get one as soon as I can.

Razer finally announced the release date of the Onza. With it's adjustable thumbsticks, extra bumpers that you can remap, and 49 dollar price tag, what's not to like?
For over a year now I have been looking and searching for more information on the Razer Onza and when it would be released. Finally today I get an email letting me know that it's been released... sort of. It's an email letting me know that it'll be available for pre-order January 17.
I think this controller will put every other controller out there to shame. First off, it's cheaper, and who don't like a good deal Jimmy? Secondly, the ability to adjust the sensitivity of your thumbsticks is awesome. I remember how much more I liked the stiffness of the original xbox controllers over the new 360 ones. It makes those need for precision situations a lot more easier to deal with. The third good reason to get this controller is an extra set of bumper stops at the top that you can re-map to any other button on the controller. This means when a certain move or action requires you to use the directional pad, you can remap it to a bumper so you don't have to take your fingers off the stick, Awesome to say the least!
There are two versions, the tournament edition and the Standard. From what i've read it seems like the tournament edition comes with the adjustable thumbsticks and that's the only addition. The full set of features for the Tournament Edition are:
- 2 Adjustable resistance analog sticks
- 2 Multi-Function Buttons
- 4 backlit Hyperresponse action buttons
- Precision D-Pad
- Non-slip rubber surface (For all of those Sweaty and Heated "Endless" battles with yourself)
- Quick released USB connector
- Fully PC compatible
- 15 foot, lightweigh, braided fiber cable
They come in a white or a black background. The standard controller is only 39.99. I don't know about you guys but I'll definately be making an order on the 17th, popping in Halo Reach, and using the precision of my newly adjusted thumbsticks to pwnn some Jimmys.
