FPS-tuned 360 controller on the way?

Microsoft is currently investigating ways to modify the Xbox 360 controller, with a possible view to releasing a 'finer-tuned' version of the device in the future.

I'm happy with the default controller for the xbox 360. But I sure wouldn't mind having a more precise controller, seeing how much I love FPS.

I cant even think of how they would perfect it any further.

just off the top of my head,they could add a ball for the thumb but a true mouse is the best way to go.....

using a computer mouse is about the worst way to play ANY pc game. All it becomes is a cheap way to match 2 pixels on top of each other by projecting your hand on a mouse pad.

Using a mouse for FPS' IS LAME. No skill and carpal tunnel.

there is no replacement for the keyboard and mouse combo,instead of tring to find something that will come close to matching its accuarcy just release a darn mouse and keyboard.I mean damn,it has the ports for it.

maybe a little tweak with the d-pad, but apart from that..........

wot it do THAMMER!!!!!

The 360 controller rocks, any improvements they make will just make it all the sweeter. And as far as the keyboard and mouse are concerned, stick to PC games if you want roll that way.

keep in mind that gamers will soon be facing each other in pc vs. xbox in the same game.The controler gamer will soon be facing the mkb gamer.We well see if u continue to "roll" with the standard controller in a fps.
