November brings Kinect (a controller-less playing experience!) and a newly remodeled wireless controller. This controller will be available for $64.99 in a Play and Charge kit on November 9 in the US and in February in Europe.
The D-pad now goes from a disc (flush with the controller) to a plus when twisted. The raised position allows for cardinal direction moves (up, down, left, right) while the disc position allows for sweeping moves. The controller has 2.4 GHz wireless technology with a 30-foot range. As per usual, up to four controllers can be synced to one system at once.
Cosmetically, you can see the buttons are shades of grey instead of red, green, yellow and blue. There is also a concave design on the analog sticks and the controller is a matte silver. These will look pretty good with the new 360 units.
