The newly "redesigned" Xbox 360 controllers are only slightly redesigned. Microsoft thought it would be nice to listen to gamers and fix the mushy, horrific d-pad it's had on it's controller for awhile. Did they succeed? Well, not necessarily. The new design is extremely nice, you have to twist the d-pad to raise and lower the cross shape but it's only aesthetically pleasing. It still feels mushy and soft. The face buttons have changed color as well.
