Product Description

Amazon Customer Review:
"This is the 360 pad that comes with the slim console. The distinguishing feature is the black d-pad rather than a grey circular one. Overall it feels more comfortable than the original 360 pad, but the most noticeable improvement is the d-pad. The directions are more defined, with rigid edges which aren't as slight as the original, and the d-pad doesn't slide around like the non slim's dpad did.
I play street fighter 4 on both xbox and ps3 and disliked playing the 360 version on pad because of the flimsy poor excuse for a d-pad. However, using this pad I was immediately at home, pulling off special moves with ease, (something i struggle to do with the analague stick or the non slim pad, even though i am series veteran).
If you're getting a 360 wireless pad get this one, it's just better. I'm sure Microsoft will phase out the old ones anyway."


Please note: The similar Play deal for the same price has the grey d-pad so this is a different product hence different deal...

Nice one, needed a new pad. Heat added and ordered.

To quote Lee from the Apprentice, now that's what I'm talking about.

Now I just need a good deal on the PC receiver.

Ooh, very nice. thank you. Here is small token of my appreciation.

PS That should work out at £7.10 by PayPal's current exchange rate. So £25.10 all in for the new controller and a PC receiver. Not too bad. Cheers.

No, that's this one:

I don't think this is the one with the upgraded d-pad, that is the D-PAD that comes up when you click it.

Yes, the buttons are colourful, so no, it's not the one with the new D-PAD. It's a better D-PAD then the first controllers, but not the new one.

This is controller 1.5.

^^^ great minds think alike!

When is the silver one out?

When is the silver one out?



No idea - was just trying to find out.

Seems to only be out in America at the moment.

This isn't the new D-PAD at all.. its exactly the same as the older ones, but black.

The new one was just released to retail though, although I haven't seen any in the UK yet.

I believe all the new ones come bundled with a play and charge kit as well.

I am pretty sure the D-pad is improved on this model.

The silver one with the transformable D-pad isn't meant to be out until February and it will cost a lot more than this.

I am a PS3 owner but this is a very good price, HOT!!!

They register diagonals better as the have 8 way blocks the older pads had 4 way blocks. The Red controllers and the limited edition green ones had 8 way too. It's still flimsy for fighters but a sizeable improvement, the new twist pad looks nice..

I love my 360 but have been frustrated by the DPAD's inability to be precise since day one. Bring back the old SNES 4way !

Thanks - ordered

February 2011 according to this.

t3.com/new…605

Or wait a while until Razr release their wired controller with adjustable resistance analogue sticks and programmable buttons etc etc might be a while yet though and suggested RRP of around £50 ... (aimed at competition players, whomever they may be)

sigh, if only the PS3 controllers would ver go this cheap - price-wise, i mean.

Will the new ones work on PC if you have a wireless reciver? The old d-pad is legendary for being so crap..

Did you buy from Amazon directly? If so, contact them (via your account page) and politely ask if they will refund the difference. Amazon have excellent customer service when it comes to this sort of thing.

Thanks, just ordered
If you hadn't of posted this i woulda ended up buying one of the older design ones from play.com for the same price

just ordered too was very tempted to get it for 26 pounds, great to see it at 18!

£26.16 now. expired.
