OXM: Why I hope Xbox 720 drops the Xbox 360 pad

OXM's Edwin writes: "I don't want to pay £300 or more for the privilege of playing today's shooters in higher resolution. And if the Xbox 360 pad returns in force, I suspect that's what I'll be presented with."

I like the 360 controller its just the d-pad that sucks

New D-Pad, the controller would be perfect.

BattleTorn2570d ago (Edited 2570d ago )

The new controllers do have a new D-Pad.

If you buy any of the special edition controllers (ie. MW3, GearsofWar3, or Star Wars, or the Chrome ones)

They all have a rotating D-Pad that is much better.

The Nextbox controller will look very similar the D pad will be better.
The controller will split into two pieces, for motion controls. click back together for regular games.

the Dpad and the battery pack.
They have fixed the D pad now (took 5 years),
all the have left to remove is the massive weight adding battery pack. If the back of the controller is flush it will be great.

I do love the 360 controller but I do hope they address those 2 concerns.

Aslong as you don't have to keep putting batteries in it I'll be happy.

TheDareDevil2570d ago (Edited 2570d ago )

Yeah, a cable with the wireless controller would've been perfect.

God knows how many matches I had to quit in Reach because my batteries ran out >:(

Get the battery pack that comes with a recharge cable. Problem solved for life.

yeah, the Dpad sucks compared the DS3. The layout and triggers are superior though.

DualShock 3, PS3's controller.

GameGuy2570d ago

Ok, I definetaly know what that is. I just never seen it acronymed....if that's a word LOL

Splooshington2570d ago

The 360 controller design is my favourite of any console to date. It's really comfortable to hold and the only issue is the temperamental D-Pad.

Kalowest2570d ago

What's wrong with the pad, it actually why i like the controller. The pad is used for quick items/weapon switching in some games. The 360 controller does suck with fighting games, but everybody should know that.
