Xbox 360 Silver Controller (With Play & Charge Kit) | £29.71 | Amazon | Xbox 360

We love the Xbox 360 controller, but we have to admit that it's got a major flaw: a seriously inaccurate D-Pad. The Special Edition Silver Controller promised to fix all that with a "transforming D-Pad," which can be twisted into a cross or regular (crappy) disc at the drop of a hat. Amazon has the cheapest price around along with Tesco Direct... but with free delivery.

However, I actually own one of these, and I can't really recommend it in good conscience. The D-Pad is fiddly to rotate and offers little functional difference 99% of the time even in games like Deathsmiles and BlazBlue. Plus, the whole greyscale effect actually looks rather tacky IRL. If you're a fan of fighting games or SHMUPS, seriously consider buying an arcade stick instead.
