This review is from: Xbox 360 Wireless Controller with Play and Charge Kit - Silver (Xbox 360) (Console)
i brought this about two weeks ago,hoping the d-pad would be decent for fighting games and while it was a slight improvement over the standard 1,the function that lets you transform the d-pad from standard to the old school cross look is clearly flawed in design.while inputing the usual circular motion in fighting games the d-pad just transforms back to the original shape,then back again!
while this didnt really concern me as the main problem with the xbox d-pad isnt the shape more the responsiveness,so on that score it seemed that they may have finally released a decent controller for fighting games.unfortunetly the d-pad fell apart in my hands about 20 minutes ago and doing abit of research ive found out that im far from the only person who this has happened to!
its a shame really because it's a really nice pad,pity the d-pad is made out of complete crap!
avoid at all costs,this seems to be a regular thing thats happening everywhere atm.

Ever heard of a thing called an ARCADE STICK? do you also use a baseball bat to play cricket?

Perhaps the reviewer hasn't heard of an arcade stick or perhaps he doesn't like them. Equating this to someone using the wrong sports equipment is neither helpful or correct. In many different types of game there are differing control methods. Driving games for instance can be controlled by a regular controller or a steering wheel peripheral. At the end of the day it comes down to personal choice so to suggest that one method is wrong is just ignorant.
Sure, arcade sticks offer a greater degree of control and are better for people who play a lot of fighting games but for someone who perhaps only plays the odd fighting game it's quite a big outlay for a decent stick.
Instead of aggressively assuming that the reviewer (or reviewers, as you have posted this comment on more than one review) is wrong, why not offer advice in a more tactful manner and suggest that a fighting stick might be more useful to them?
