Still looks like it will cause issues. The problem is the fact that it is basically a d-pad button instead of actual directions :\.

wonder if they will fix the thumbsticks as well.

current ones are horrible, with couple degrees of play in each direction, makes old games very hard to play. dead zone issues.

Come on now. It has been almost 5 years now and they still haven't fixed RRoD...you really think they are capable of fixing something?

But you can apparently rotate the d-pad. The purpose of that still escapes me.

It's like the old Sega ones in this way. Sony's one is still similar though... the "buttons" are all connected, they're just separated by the controllers casing.
