Microsoft has confirmed that it will be releasing a revised Xbox 360 controller on October 24th. It will be available in Europe, Asia and Latin America only, and feature a revised d-pad.
The new limited edition green wireless controller offers enhancements to d-pad functionality, which will add to the experience of playing games where the d-pad is the primary control mechanism,
We're always looking to improve products and we made these changes based on feedback from gamers.
Microsoft has told Eurogamer.net. There's also a bad news, the revised Xbox 360 controller will be a promotional item produced in limited quantities, so getting one won't be an easy task.

i thought that the xbox 360 pad was comfortable and had a good layout it was like a sort of dreamcast and xbox 1 pad mashed together then tweaked

the only problem with it tho was the d pad although not horrible it wasnt very good either

the analogues and triggers where excellent and buttons still fell like they did when i bought my 360

ill be getting one and using my other 3 as multiplayer i have a usb pad but i might have to get a wireless receiver to use with my pc

What is the fix they are talking about? Is it a reduced lip that limits mobility of the d-pad? I think a dremel and careful handling will fix that.
