Still looking for the perfect Xbox 360 d-pad for all those Live Arcade classics?

Okay, if Mad Catz can make a D-Pad similar to Nintendo's own, then why can't a company like Microsoft? Seriously, all those 3rd party companies and unlicensed companies make them, how do they get away with it, while Microsoft continues to use that useless design of it's own?

I absolutely love the design of the 360's controller.. it's phenomenal. The only thing I don't like is the D-pad.

Oh hey I think the rest of the controller is awesome, it's just that the D-Pad is so crappy. Microsoft should have tried to license Sega's design or something so they could of had something half decent. Really makes pulling off moves in fighting games hard.
