Ive never even heard of this. And the only problem with the Xbox controller is the D-Pad, other than that it surpasses the "competitors".

Old news for the rest of the world

"Aberdeen" uh isn't that the exact same as the sliver one that's been out for awhile now.. what did I miss..

what's new -besides the name, I don't get it, it looks exactly the same

I still just like the glossy black xbox controller - wish they would add the new D-pad to that one... (with that little bit of silver on the D-pad it would look awesome on the all black one)

This controller fixes the D-Pad. Hopefully they will start packaging it with the Xbox 360 in its normal color.

...which is pointless for the majority of us who already own a 360.

@Bobby Kotex

I really see no difference in releasing a new controller and releasing a new console. People will trade in, sell, upgrade their controller just like the do their consoles to make their gaming experience better. Or just simply because it is the latest and greatest.

Wow, for "awiseman" you seem to have a strong trolling habit.

TheLastGuardian2768d ago

Lol @ Microsoft. We don't have any games coming out this year but heres a new $60 controller to play your old games with.

frjoethesecond2768d ago

Even thought your trolling I kinda agree but mostly disagree. I mean it's there for people who want it. It's not like the old controllers are gonna stop working and you'll be forced to buy this one.

I think it safe to say that your a PS3 pole smoker.

one of these showed up at the gamestop i worked at sometime after the holiday season. I didnt look closely at it but i loved the silver color and I thought it was weird how they took the color out of the buttons.

Releasing a new controller makes sense when theres games to play on the platform...
