Gizmodo, a technology information and how-to site has recently unveiled Microsoft’s new makeover to the Xbox 360 controller. The new controller features a more sleek look, sporting a silver paint job with black trim.

The D-Pad of the controller has been refined to resemble a true d-pad, similar to the Nintendo and playstation controllers of the past. This appears to be a far cry from the disc-pad of previous Xbox 360 controllers.

The controller will only be available in a $65 play-and-charge kit bundle that doesn’t come out until November 9th.

Major Nelson from the Xbox dev team has done a video breakdown of the controller. You can view the video below.
