    New Xbox Controller

    So there's a new 360 controller out on November 9th in America, and in February for Europe. You can see it here.

    I think it looks pretty good, and I like the grey colour scheme. Its d-pad is pretty nice, since apparently plenty of people have had problems with it. It comes with a Plug and Charge kit too, which is a good way to save money. I would consider getting one, but I plan on getting a Reach controller since my current one is getting old. Thoughts?

    I might get one of those when my third controller goes bad.

    I saw this the other day and I must say I like it a lot . I'd like it even more if the Reach controller implemented this design, though. I don't really care about the D-pad changes since the only time I use it extensively is in DOA4, but I love the gray-colors of the buttons. It gives off the vibe (at least to me) that the gaming industry is finally outgrowing the hand-me-downs that the Entertainment industry has left us. Videogames are growing up and controllers with rainbow-colored buttons just give off an impression that gamers are too childiish or too stupid to remember buttons without colors as a guide. This is a good step toward dispelling that idealogy and showing the rest of the world that this is a hobby for adults as well.

    I might buy this since I'm always on the lookout for good controllers and the Razer Onza controllers don't seem to be anywhere in sight for a release date. I just bought a strange controller recently, but my second one is going bad so I'll have an excuse to get this one soon enough.

    This is what I just bought:



    This is what I want to get:



    And as soon as they get some brains out there, this is what they need to hurry up and get a 360 version for (used to own one of these things for my xbox. Best controller I ever owned. My gameplay went up ten-fold. Completely eliminates the necessity for settings like Bumper Jumper:
