Brian Tong of GameSpot sister site CNET got his hands on the gamepad today at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and shared some images and a video through his Twitter account.

Pictured above and in the video below is the Xbox One version of the gamepad, though PDP is also making one for PlayStation 4. Pricing was not announced.

Tong writes: "The D-Pad side is longer than the button side and it's designed to allow you to either hit the buttons with your thumb, or tap them out like an arcade stick designed with the help of 'OneHandedTerror.'"

Mortal Kombat X launches April 14 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, and PC. For more, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
