Cynicism aside, the new controller from Microsoft will address the biggest issue most people had with the original controller: the directional pad. The “disc” that surrounds the familiar “plus” sign of the directional pad can now be adjusted back so that it is less obtrusive. The controller will be available to the general public on November 9th exclusively in a Play & Charge Kit at the “why does this cost more than a game?” price of $64.99.
Will this stop people bitching that their controller caused them to lose the round? I doubt it.
