New Xbox 360 Wireless Controller to Feature Shape-Shifting D-Pad

Major Nelson's blog was busy this week, as he announced that there will be a brand new version of the Xbox 360 Wireless controller. The slightly altered newest edition will showcase a transforming D-pad that can go from a "plus to a disc with the twist of the wrist." Not only that, but the controller will sport a matte silver body, concave analog sticks and gray A,B,X,Y buttons for that extra flavor.

The good news is that these will ship November 9th and are available for pre-order right now over on Amazon. The bad news is that you have to pay $64.99 for it as it comes with the Play & Charge Kit. That's okay though, because you were at PAX Prime and got a free one, right? No? Oh. Well, then go get the pre-order!
