New Xbox 360 controller

Microsoft has revised the controller for its Xbox 360 controller and will release the new product this fall, according to a Wednesday report. The changes have to do with improving the d-pad's operation and confirm earlier reports of a new controller, though the news comes short of expectations. According to Microsoft staff, the product is available for a limited time and in markets outside of North America.

The controller will only come in green and will come with Xbox consoles bundled with the latest Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 game by Konami, where the d-pad is the primary control interface. The report goes on to suggest a third-party publisher said the same new pad has been designed to work with Street Fighter IV, which is due for a release early in 2009.

The new controller will be released on October 24 in Europe, Asia and Latin America. [via Eurogamer]
