it is about time.
I'm glad to see this coming out,
disappointed that its only bundled with the play and charge at $64.99 US

I do not need another play and charge kit but I do want this controller, I guess after some time they will release it alone.

Weird that they decided to change the colour scheme of the A, B, X, Y buttons.

I like that they are fixing the D-Pad, but I really don't like the changing of the A, B, X, & Y buttons. I'm so used to "pressing the blue button" for example, and don't really think about whether it's the X or Y button. That one's going to throw me off-guard quite a bit I think.

And everyone who just bought the newest version of the console gets shafted.

I like my xbox but it seems ridiculous that buying the latest/greatest is put to lie a month or two later.

People have been complaining for SIX YEARS. Why do this now, when the console is in the last couple of years of its life cycle?

I bet a patent expired on another device and that permitted Microsoft to make this long requested change.

And as long as the console manufacturers are improving their controllers, how about Sony fix the triggers on the PS3 controller? The convex design is absolutely ridiculous.

MS actually fixed the d-pad a while ago, I know on my Red Elite (RE5 edition), the d-pad was far more responsive than the previous 360 controllers. Yes, it wasn't a complete redesign, but they improved it somehow, not sure what exactly changed, but whatever it was, I found it to be great for Street Fighter IV.

I hate the ps3 controller with a passion,
my hands are way too big to hold it comfortably, it was ok wit the ps1 before the analog, but having the sticks where they are is terrible
the triggers are a big upgrade but yeah convex, whats up with that

I like the PS3 controller but I have small hands. I am surprised however that Sony hasn't come out with a controller meant for the big fellas.

As far as I am aware that was a special version of the Xbox controller that featured a 16 direction D-pad and was only available in that package. Microsoft continued to churn out the original controller with its contemptible D-pad design all along.

Really? Seems odd that it would be a special edition only.
I definitely noticed a difference with that controller though, works great in things like Street Fighter.
