Well, as close as it can be. This controller is a huge improvement over the old controllers which were already great. Everything that Microsoft has changed has improved the feel, look and ease of use of this controller with one exception (ABXY for new players) compared to my old red & black controller. I think that is excellent value as you get the Play & Charge kit with it and it doesn't cost a penny more than a new black controller.

The 'real' changes:
The biggest change is obviously the new D-Pad and I think that this is an excellent additional feature to an already great controller. I have played on games that I use the D-Pad to play an I honestly think that I have improved slightly at the game due to being able more easily press the directions and not accidentally press the wrong direction as easily. Even when playing CoD I use the new feature because it is just all round better when selecting kill streaks etc. if you don't need to select a mid-point between the directions like on a game such as Marvel vs. Capcom 3. I find the D-Pad easy to change from one setting to another and could easily be done during a hectic game of CoD.
Another improvement in my opinion is the new thumbsticks. I think that the new design allow you to grip them better and have a better contact with the controller. I also believe that the new thumbsticks are easier to move around which gives them a better feel. Although I have heard complaints about the new thumbsticks so they might not be for you.
A final slight improvement that you will notice if you have an old controller in one hand and this in you other is the texture of the controller.

This is a top controller, would definitely recommend.

The D-Pad works well and does give more confidence when in frantic situations when you need to rely on pushing the right direction. The thumb sticks slightly new top feels really comfortable but does take a bit of getting used to.

I really like the A,X,Y,B buttons' new colours, but that could cause issue for new starters getting used to which button is which.

The only niggles I have with it are that the battery pack which is included is black, and against the silver shell, it does look slightly odd (even with the black details on the actual controller). It would've also been nice if the start and back buttons were silver/black too, and not a plasticy light grey.

Overall I'd give this controller 9.5/10, purely because of the 2 cosmetic issues I mentioned.

The original xbox 360 controller was a masterpiece of ergonomics but the D-Pad was a major flaw when it came to fighting games. Thankfully with this redesign the issues have been fixed it also looks great with the new minimalist colour scheme. Don't hesitate grab one today

...and i DO love to nitpick, there would be a couple of things to say about this piece of kit. let's begin with stating the obvious - it's great. it's an evolution of a controller i find as close to perfection, as it gets right now. but i does not mean i like every single thing about it.
-included battery pack is useless if you're into serious gaming. i've been using sanyo eneloops for years in almost every battery powered gadget i own, and it's fortunately an option. i wish i could buy the standalone controller without battery pack and cables. i won't be using them anyway
-i'm not sure how durable will the silver coating be. the red, limited edition controllers had the tendency to lose pait with use. only time will tell
-glossy elements. i HATE glossy on my gaming peripherals. i could live with shiny mirror-like guide button and d-pad, but the bottom/back part of the controller is made from completely different kind of plastic than the rest of. it feels different, it gives different friction, it doesn't feel very good. not to mention the "i've just finished a 3 hour long marathon of " look
-lack of colours on the ABXY buttons looks pretty nice, it gives the desaturated, almost noire like feel to the controller, but it might alienate newcomers. many games use color coding during in-game tutorials or/and quick time events. if you're not familiar with xbox360 button layout it might cause you some trouble

otherwise i love it. but in a couple of hours i'm gonna compare it to razer's tournament edition of onza. we will see how it holds up

ps. english is my second language, so please, be tolerant ;)

This controller is a mixed bag. It didn't deliver on aspects that it promised, yet excelled in others that I didn't even expect.

The D-pad, while it can transform, and is admittedly more responsive, it's only by so much. It still floats on a disc just like the original controller, so you will not be getting the clicky/rigid D-pad that you were looking for. It's an improvement, but that may not be enough.

Thankfully, I still highly enjoy this controller. It looks sleek, feels good with a matte silver plastic finish, and best of all has a different thumbstick analogue design. Instead of 4 little bumps on each analogue, there is a circular edge that is both more comfortable, and does a better job at stopping your thumbs from accidentally sliding off the stick. Instead of getting sore thumbs after an hour or two of intense matchmaking playing, I find myself able to play for as long as I want. Whether that's a good or a bad thing is up to your opinion.

4 stars, because while this controller gets most of it right, the D-pad wasn't the improvement we were all looking for.
