how is this d-pad when playing fifa, is it more accurate?


not sure mate i have just ordered it so will find out and report back

cant use d-pad with fifa i dont think. surely the analog stick is best for accuracy.

Good price, but it's pretty much always £30 at Amazon & Argos ever since it's release.

d-pad can be used but can be very inaccurate at times, analog stick i can play with but just don't feel right for some reason hence why d-pad is my preference

i really like it

and is the new d-pad any good for fifa?

same price at tesco, went to gamestation and got them to price match tesco for £29.90 BARGAIN

or you could have saved yourself all that hassle and bought it for £29.99.....at Argos bought mine a month ago and can't really say it's improved my gaming experience at all.

Why didn't you just buy it at Tesco?

i'm guessing xp points

I had one of these the D pad is even worse than the old style hard to believe but true.
For example I was holding down back and my character in mvc3 was still standing up like the d pad was in neutral.
I sold it at cex and got a TE stick.

Football with a d-pad is miles more comfortable for me, find it alot quicker/easier to switch directions with the pad than with the stick.

However, FIFA with the D-pad sucks for online play. Because EA are total **** who don't bother to make games properly and only focus on making a quick buck, for nearly every version of FIFA the analog stick doesn't work properly for seelcting quick tactics - only the D-pad does. Which means if you want to play the offside trap, or have your team press the ball in game, etc etc, you're forced to move with the sticks and use the dpad as the quick tactics selector.

On top of this, trying to head the ball into a top corner with a d-pad is nearly impossible because most of the time the game registers the direction on the d-pad as extreme left/right (for headers). Heading with the analogue stick is infinitely more accurate.

Good price, heat added.

Same deal for the controller in black for those who would prefer it.

Gears of War

Fighting Games, Football Games, Retro arcade ....

I need a controller to beat Shao Kahn in Mortal Kombat Story mode, it is driving me insane the dpad just sucks to much and the analog stick is too unaccurate.

Fragaliciousbob is right, it's not the same item. The D-pad on the silver controller has two different configurations.

don't be fooled the d pad is worse than the black slim pads

What level are you? As a seasoned fifa pro id like to give this a try and it may even make it easier to beat teams.
