* New Xbox360 Controller

I've never complained, but apparently, enough people did that Microsoft is updating the Xbox360 controller to include a shape-changing D-pad:

"We've heard from the community that you're not big fans of the D-pad, so the engineers went back into the laboratory and came up with this ingenious solution," Larry Hryb, Xbox Live programming director, said in a video demo. "It is a revolutionary D-pad that transforms from a disc into a plus ? with the twist of a hand."

The "plus" format, therefore, can be used for cardinal directional moves, while the "disc" format is intended for sweeping moves, Microsoft said.
I just wish they'd stop being so proprietary; it'd be much better for consumers if there were more third-party controller options.
