News: Newly designed XBOX 360 controller.

Today we have some more news coming from Microsoft. And yes, this may also hurt your wallet much like yesterday’s Xbox Live Gold prices update.

Not much has changed with the new controller, it’s still the same shape, so what has changed?

Well first thing’s first there is a new, monochromatic, colour scheme. But the only other real change is the D-Pad. Now you can have it in 2 settings. The first is the same as it currently is. But if you twist it, the useless raised bits between the directions fall down and you have a “fighter-friendly” D-Pad.

It will ship to the USA November 9th for $64.99 and will make its way to Europe sometime in February 2011 for a unkown price.

Here is a video of Xbox Live’s Major Nelson showing off the new controller for you:
