Xbox 360 Silver Controller With Play & Charge Kit | £29.99 | Amazon | Xbox 360
  • What: Xbox 360 Silver Controller With Play & Charge Kit
  • Where: Amazon
  • Current Price: £29.99

We're huge fans of the standard Xbox 360 controller here at Dealspwn, but there's one thing we absolutely can't stand. The D-Pad is completely hopeless, especially for fighting games and SHMUPS (where it provides unresponsive inputs that frequently fail to register diagonals). However, Microsoft's new silver controller features a transforming D-Pad that can be twisted into a cross rather than a disc, and though it's a gimmick, it's a damn fine one. Amazon are currently the cheapest retailer around at just under thirty quid, though whether a controller can actually be worth that much is debatable.

The new silver design is extremely attractive, but personally, I'm not sold on the grey face buttons. What do you guys make of it?

My Reach pads should have come with all this jazz, as thats all it basically is.

Microsoft "We've ordered to many parts! What now?...... GIMMICK!"
