All my controllers end up with stuck buttons, even a new one I bought last year. My only one without stuck buttons has chewed off thumb stick rubber :/

If GCU worked on these, I'd order at least one of them.

Any CAG's feel that the d-pad is truly improved in this edition?

These look beautiful (in a Vegas kind of way), but are they as nightmarishly prone to picking up fingerprints as they look like they would be?

 

EDIT: Also, looks like Amazon has PM'd the Camouflage one.

 

EDIT AGAIN: Here's the link that's actually relevant to that statement: http://www.amazon.co...xbox controller

I know what you mean..except my kids use the wii u gamepad and that's not so easily replaceable. I bought one of those nerf protectors for it. Does a decent job against drops

HAHAHA. Was having an unrelated conversation about someone pronouncing "PS1" as "P'Zone," and I got my wires crossed. Oops.

I have no idea why I am tempted by these stupid things.... I kinda want that chrome blue, I love blue (UK nut). I already have a wired, a rapid fire old school black and camo from the $30 BB sale last year.

 

 

Edit: to answer a earlier question yes I prefer these D-pads much more than the originals. You can rotate it to be near flat like old school 360 or were the + is much more pronounced. Better yes but Sony controller D-pad quality, no way.

It's improved, but it still isn't great.  The ability to twist the D-Pad to make the button 'cross' more pronounced is good, but it still has the same, or at least similar, sensitivity problem where the angle can be misinterpreted, so something like a down press could be mistaken for a right-down or left-down press.  It doesn't resolve the issue, it just helps slightly.

 

But if you're looking for stylish wireless controllers then these are a good buy.

This is a tempting price, even though I already have 2 360 controllers.  Hmm...

I think he D pad is actually much improved, but still not as good as Sony, Nintendo, or the Xbox one's D pad. The analog sticks on these feel better too, on the old controllers the little bumps always wear off after some time, these feel like they give you a little more grip.

Picked up a blue one at my local BB this afternoon. So pretty.

 

The blue and red ones were on the clearance rack priced at $51.99, so I had to get them to look up the BB.com price.

Got the red one from Amazon awhile back when it was $21 or so. It's just sitting there sealed collecting dust  but yet I'm still tempted to go for the blue.

Agreed.  While there isn't THAT much difference in the newer controllers, they just feel so much better to me.  Those bumps on the old analog sticks wear down after time, and the new ones have a nice concave area where you place your thumb.   The d-pad isn't great, but significantly better than the original.  

 

The shiny ones do pick up fingerprints, but not as bad as you might think.

 

If you are on the fence, I'd say go for it.  I look at it as a in-between of the original 360 controller and the XB1 controller.

If you got 1 or 2 working controller might as well just wait.  There will be more deals when store are clearing space for PS4/Xbox1 stuff.

Evil D-pad is the best controller for 360 IMO!

I picked up a silver chrome one at this price a few months ago and I'm really happy with it.. even my non-gamer wife commented on how nice it looked.
