It’s not the much-rumoured motion-sensing controller, but the ol’ Xbox 360 pad is about to get an upgrade in the form of a lick of paint and a new D-pad. The new controller has been “optimized” for Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer series, and should make the d-pad a more viable option for controlling games that make use of it.
However, if you’re jumping for joy because you despise the existing d-pad beyond imagination, then you might want to look away now. The new pad is apparently just a limited-edition promotional item which will only be available in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
The pad will likely be released on the 24th October. No word on pricing, yet. When’s the motion-sensing one coming out, Microsoft?
