It’s not the only controller with problems, but it’s no secret that the d-pad on the vanilla Xbox 360 controller has its flaws. It’s basically one big button that serves four functions or directions, and sometimes this hampers accuracy when playing the game.
Do you love playing games with your Wii-mote, but prefer a joystick to a D-Pad? Well have I got something for you! The Wii Magic Stick is a cover that slides over your current Wii-mote and (sorta) turns it into joystick.
It’s also supposed to make gameplay more comfortable for your fingers, but you’ll have to get one to find out if that’s the case.
The guys over at XCM are at it once more with another cool mod you can buy to make your Xbox 360 just that much better.
The new XCM Crystal Controller Kit not only redresses your 360 controller in a spiffy clear skin, but it also adds a brand new oversize D-pad that’s designed to prevent you from mistakenly pressing it in the wrong direction.
I can speak from experience when I say there’s nothing worse than accidentally selecting that plasma rifle when you meant to select the rocket launcher.
Of course, the best part of the Crystal Controller is that it comes pre-wired with a gorgeous array of nine colorful LEDs which illuminate the A/B/X/Y, back, start, dashboard and shoulder buttons.
You can get your grubby little paws on the complete Crystal Controller kit over on RenChi for $29.90.
