D-Pad woes have long plagued gamers using the standard-issue Official Xbox 360 gamepads. Now, Evil Controllers propose a simple and somewhat retrograde solution to the roots of many controller-flinging furies induced when certain movements get lost in translation between the hands and controller.
Long time purveyors of modded controllers, Evil are to replace the single directional button currently on pads, which is effectively rolled in the chosen direction of the user, with four separate buttons, much like the traditional design of the Playstation’s D-pad. This will, it is lauded, provide greater accuracy and close the window on accidental mistakes made through hardware niggles.
While I’ve never had any major issues with the D-pad, not since those long-bygone days of panicked ElderScrolls spellcasting, I’m sure this will come as a boon to gamers so desperate for the edge that they’re willing to lose money hand over fist for bespoke controllers.
