Xbox 360 Special Edition controller( Transforming D-Pad)

Is cheap right now at time of posting at Argos, £29.99, I bought one today and will be testing out the D-Pad later tonight, It better be an Improvement!!
Also at Argos you get It with a plug and play charge Kit, Was £39.99 so If you need a new joypad now's the time Smiley

That dude was playing street fighter though and you don't know just how rough he treated It, My other joypads are still fine but wanted this as I hope Its better for my Pacman game than the standard D-Pad, I will report back In 3 weeks Grin

I suppose it is how often you use it, I rarely use it other than the odd occasion so mine is like new (the D-pad that is not the controller) Cheesy

Re: Xbox 360 Special Edition controller( Transforming D-Pad)

Interested to know what peoples experiences are with this as I *hate* the d-pad on the stock Xbox controllers. I've also a few games now where I'd prefer to use the d-pad over the analogue sticks.

@bob, I have been playing Pacman DX ( championship edition) on my 360 with the new joy-pad using the D-Pad and so far I can say Its an Improvement on the standard D-Pad, Much better IMHO.
P.S Here's a link to the Pacman game, Its great check It out!!

I am a big fan of the new controller, got mine from amazon for 29.99.  It appears its only available with the play&charge kit so I now have a spare cable and a spare battery pack.
