It’s now official; Microsoft has already confirmed that they are coming with a new Xbox 360 controller. Apparently, this new Xbox 360 controller comes with an improved D-pad that has been especially designed to increase its usability. Likewise, Microsoft also confirmed that the D-pad has been enhanced to give players a more exciting and fun experience while playing their awesome games.

This new Xbox 360 controller as mentioned, comes with an improved D-pad that transforms from plus into a disc and offers a more accurate and precise control for both directional and sweeping movements. Aside from its usability features, this new controller also has a stylish design and comes with a special edition matte silver color, unique buttons and a Play and Charge kit to keep you going.

Basically, this new Xbox 360 controller offers the following features:

  • Easily convertible – its D-pad can be rotated to become accustomed with the user’s game play

  • Allows simultaneous usage – you can use up to 4 controllers at the same time on one console
  • Ultimate precision and control – use in “plus” format for cardinal directional moves and “disc” format for sweeping moves

This new Xbox 360 controller is only a limited edition offer and it will be available in Europe, Asia, and Latin America. This will be offered at a price of $64.99, which is already inclusive of the Play and Charge kit.
