MS confirms new 360 controller

Comes with charge kit, fancy d-pad.

Microsoft has confirmed that a new Xbox 360 controller will be sold at the start of next year.

The pad will come bundled with a charge kit and snazzy new d-pad, which should actually be half decent for Street Fighter.

"The Xbox 360 Wireless Controller with Play & Charge Kit - with Transforming D-pad will be available worldwide beginning early 2011," MS told Strategy Informer.

Reports unearthed earlier today suggested the new d-pad rises up a quarter of an inch if you rotate it 90 degrees.
