Microsoft's new Xbox 360 controller - this one with a "transforming" five-way navpad - is official.

Xbox 360 Wireless Controller

The wireless unit sports a D-pad that can be rotated to raise the + shape for more accurate thumbing. Prefer the old approach? Twist the pad the other way and the + flattens flush with the surface of the control.

Here's a vid to show it in action:

The controller will only be available with the new Play & Charge Kit that will launch on 9 November in the US, priced at $65. There's no word yet on the UK release and pricing. ®
