Guide to the Xbox 360 Controller

The New Xbox 360 ControllerThere are those that argue that the Xbox 360 Controller is the current standard to which all other console controllers should be compared. With its comfortable thumbstick positioning and solid design feel, the Xbox 360 controller is great for shooters and sports games. The Xbox 360 was the first system to include wireless controllers as a standard feature.

The lackluster D-pad, however, has been a cause for concern for fans of fighting and Xbox Live Arcade games that tend to avoid the thumbsticks. Thankfully, Microsoft recently revealed a revamped version of their original wireless controller that will be released in November 2010. This revolutionary design features a rotating D-pad that actually allows gamers to raise the D-pad above the backing for more precise control.

Our collection of guides and information on the Xbox 360 controller cover all aspects of this revolutionary control device.
