    Default Xbox Goes Green.......

    ......with a new controller

    New Green Xbox 360 Controller - Win One to Try Out!

    If you've been keeping up with the news coming out of Leipzig this week you'll have heard the reports of a new green Xbox 360 controller spotted in the wilds of Konami's booth. You may also have heard that it has an enhanced D-pad, that has been developed in line with community feedback in order to offer an improved experience for gamers who like to use the D-pad for games like PES and Street Fighter.

    In fact, the pad has been specially optimised for use with PES2009, hence the reason Konami was using it on their booth to demo the new game. The pad itself is a limited edition that will be available soon, and the reason it's green is that the community has requested this colour more than any other! Apparently it is easy being green, Kermit obviously didn't know what he was on about.

    More pics down in the Gallery. It's really nice too - I know because I've got one sitting right here on my desk, and I used it to play PES2009 last week. Since I'm an old-school PS2 PES fan I always used the D-pad to play the game before it came to Xbox 360, and I'll be honest and say that it took me AGES to get used to using the stick on the Xbox 360 version. So the new D-pad was pretty special for me - it feels a lot more connected, a lot more reactive, and less clicky-clacky - you can change directions more quickly and combine movements in a much more fluid way. Good work, D-pad development fellas!

    In fact, I like it so much that I'm going to give it away. If you love it, set it free and all that. So, if you would like to try out the new green controller for yourself all you need to do is send me an email to [email protected] with 'I WANNA GREEN CONTROLLER' in the subject line telling me why you think you're the ideal person to test out the new D-pad. Be funny. Be daft. Be scientific. But be interesting, because I'll pick the reason that intrigues me the most - and then I'll ask you to write me a short review of what you think of the controller and I'll post it on the blog.

    Couple of rules: This is open to anyone in Europe only. My decision, which will be made on Friday September 29, is final. And I'll delete all your emails as soon as I've picked a winner - they won't be stored or used for anything else.

    Don't say I'm not good to you...

    Oh my god... Surely they are not going to be releasing that!

    It's a disgrace. No seriously they had better not as it looks awful. Looks like someone has been sick on it...

    It doesn't look very nice at all. It looks like guacamole.

    I don't know if it's worser if it's green to the world or green in colour.

    What I don't get is they fix the D-Pad but then only apply it to a limited edition controller that isn't even on sale in the US. Strange... I can only assume that at some point they will add the fixed D-Pad to the new handsets.
