Heres why I think this new D-pad will not make any difference. Its because the whole thing is still one actual button, as opposed to 4 separate buttons. So because of this, when you press a direction, your still moving the entire button, with a chance of triggering another direction. They need to make 4 separate buttons for the best D-pad, not this twisting crap. I would also like proof that it doesn't transition during gameplay, he simply says no in the interview, but doesn't give a detailed answer about why it doesn't.

There've been a few in-depth reviews that state it doesn't transition. They've also stated that it's improved over the original design too.

I bought this day one and it works great. The dpad is almost impossible to 'transition' during regular gameplay, and when you do 'switch' it the new dpad works much, much better.

In fact, I keep mine permanently 'transitioned' since I usually use the dpad for menus, etc.

Don't be hater, be a player.
