Pretty pointless since its only limited edition (unless it will be implemented into all 360 controllers sometime), and most games don't really need the d-pad. And green is... bleh.

Okay. It's a D-pad. I don't really see what's so special about it. o_O;

The d-pad is good as it is imo, nothing wrong with it. I hope they bundle the red and black controller that was showed off at E3 with something as it was awesome

It's bad but not that bad. Sure it has its foul ups, but like Sanction said its stupid for a better limited edition controller.

the d pad on that controller on the link was the exact same thing as the current d pads.

Only people who play football games would actually benefit from this but even then very few would buy it because it's green. Why not just leave it as white?

I dont really see the difference,(green is teh sux) the d-pad is important, if you play devil may cry 4 you should know what i am talking about.

So instead of putting their time toward fixing the RRoD dilemma, they spend it making a better D-pad even though the current one is just fine... >.<

The D-pad looks the same to me. The only way to see the difference in gameplay is to use it while playing a Fighting game.

The current D-pad is not great at all when it comes to Fighting games. I've used it for Street Fighter and it definitely has its' flaws.

i dont really use the d-pad too much, but when i do its an absolute chore.
i would buy that but good god they should have gone with dark green or translucent like it was for the xbox.

Yeah.. uh.. it looks the same? I don't get how it will be different?

I've always disliked how the d-pad worked. It could be a lot better for anything and everything.

I would definitely like to see it improved worldwide.

Wow, they should just make a normal white version and just stick it in with the regular packages instead of doing some limited edition crap imo.

Dammit Microsoft, the D-Pad is horiffic and needs redesigned (Anyone who says otherwise hasnt played Street Fighter or Guilty Gear with it) Stupid limited edition.

I quite like the colour! I prefer green over black or pink! Its a shame I wont be able to get one of these just because I have no intrest in the game its bundled with...A working D-pad is long over due!

Oh, don't get me wrong. Green is actually my favorite color. It's just that shade of green that I dislike. I'd rather have a more neon form of green.

Lame and a letdown I say, I was at least expecting a bit more change!

I would buy this in a heartbeat. The current D-pad is horrible. It's one big piece of hard plastic so it registers 2 or 3 directions sometimes when you're only trying to press one. The most ridiculous thing was when I was playing a bonus stage on Street Fighter 2, and my character was doing dragon punches to the left even though I was motioning to do them to the right.

Yeah I agree with you there is absolutly nothing special about the D-pad its just there you barely even use it =S

Yeah I barely use it as well. Only for some games (Assassins' Creed, etc) where you use it to switch weapons, etc. I read somewhere it was going to be a 12 direction d-pad. Now that is too many directions; I mean seriously all you need is up, down, left and right.

The current D-pad is awful. It's soft and squishy and you can never really tell what direction is registering.

The weird thing is that I don't understand why they messed it up. The Xbox1 had a very nice D-pad.
