Hori is releasing a 6 button Xbox 360 controller, finally. It has two analog sticks as well, so it'll be better for general game use than the Madcatz FightPad (and also the face button layout makes more sense than the US FightPad layout). I have a regular Hori pad and the d-pad is definitely superior to the Madcatz FightPad's.

It's available in black, dark blue, or white.

It's the same dpad as the regular Hori controller, and I can assure you it's very good.

to me anyway. But I'm totally a fan of the Hori pads. Anyone know when they're coming out? I tried googling it and it didn't look like a anyone had a date. Somehow some guy on youtube got his hands on them, though.

Suxors... I'm new and can't post links... anyway the guy's channel is called DasReviews on youtube. Or you can search for the controller name, i guess.


Am jealous. Do want.

Do these things qualify when P-A has their 50% off sale?

Thanks for bringing this up, I was really needing a new fightpad. Getting one in black to match my Elite.

Sweet! Amazon links:

Black: http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B002LT9PXQ/
Blue: http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B002LT24CK/

The white one seems to be Japan-exclusive, but it's available at Play-Asia: http://www.play-asia...bo-70-3mbe.html

Yes its got back bumpers and triggers, and they are better quality than the ones on the 4 button horipad. The face buttons and sticks are better than the 4 button horipad, as is the overall feel.

In fact, I'd say its one of the best overall pads I've used, and I've used virtually all of the ones out for 360.
