Microsoft has gone and changed everything we knew about the lovely controller for their console. The biggest change from the get-go is the color change. Keeping in line with the apparent fighter pilot theme they’ve switched to a silver, grey monochrome color scheme for the whole controller. That’s right, the whole controller. See ya red, blue, yellow and green buttons. Each of them is now a different shade of grey, white or black. Modern Warefare 2 numbers across the world will dip when these babies release.
The next major change that isn’t readily visible but apparently is quite improved is the D-pad. The button has been raised significantly and from all the reviews of early testers it’s much more responsive than it had been before. Now your friend can’t use the excuse that he didn’t have a fight pad when you beat him down in Super Street Fighter 4.
These sleek new controllers will be packaged in a new Play and Charge kit debuting on November 9 for $64.99.
