New Xbox 360 pad - first video!

Coming February 2011 to Europe; Three months earlier in US

Director of Programming for Microsoft gaming, Larry 'Major Nelson' Hryb, has shown off the new Xbox 360 controller. Would you believe it, it's white with grey buttons and a metallic d-pad.

The new controller, which Microsoft just confirmed to CVG will be released next year.

According to Major Nelson, the controller will be available on November 9 2010 for $64.99 in the US - and some time in February 2011 in Europe.

It will feature a new and improved d-pad which can be manipulated and raised for better control by 'twisting' it. Microsoft has patented the design.

It's impressive stuff. Check out the video below.

What do you think of it, folks? Any good?
