With Tekken 6 coming out in October, I have been looking to buy another controller that has a much improved D-pad. I am a big Tekken fan and have been playing the game since Tekken 2. Therefore, I have become accustomed to the playstation d-pad when it came to this fighting game. I love the ps3 d-pad becauseI know if I hold left on the d-pad, I'll move left and not up and left. The movement seems more accurate with a d-pad than a thumbstick or the awful d-pad on the 360 controller.
Don't get me wrong, Tekken 6 won't be 'unplayable' because of the xbox 360 controller, but I'd much rather have a more accurate d-pad for this fighting game because I plan on playing a lot of Tekken when it is released. Games likeSF4 and SC4 played well on the xbox 360 controller, but the controls felt much smoother on the ps3 with a playstation d-pad. Is there a xbox 360 controller available with a much improved d-pad? I have seen the Gamestop wired controllers with the normal d-pad. Is that a good controller for Tekken 6? I would like to know if anyone can recommend a controller with this feature. If I have to play Tekken 6 on the normal xbox 360 controller, I will. However, I'd much perfer a better d-pad.
