But it is SO PRETTY! Don't let the picture fool you into thinking that the skin job is "just awesome." This thing is gorgeous. If I were single and this controller were a woman I would repeatedly take it out to eat fancy seafood in public places where I could watch men and women drool alike over the awesomeness across the table from me. This controller is that pretty. The underside is black, the graphics are just on the top, and that really doesn't matter; as my mom sits in her living room redefining "low man on the totem pole," she is doing so with the sweetest looking controller made for any system I have ever seen.
Unlike the silver controller the back is a very textured matte black and the MW3 design on the top isn't slick like the tops of all of the other limited edition controllers. It's actually quite a bit easier to hold on to than any of the other 360 controllers I've tried since release day and includes the switchable d-pad. I purchased it since my silver one's right trigger stopped working every time I pulled it and find it to be ideal after playing Skyrim, MW3 & a bit of Battlefield 3 with it throughout the day, due to it being a lot less slippery.
I imagine this one would be good for people who's hands sweat when they play, though I can't say for certain as mine don't - it just seems to me that a less slippery controller would be better in that situation.
I thought that the twistable D-pad was a gimmick at first, but I have actually found that I prefer the center 4 directions in the raised position. The D-pad still operates as a "floating disk" - that is to say that one can still press it to the northeast instead of only north or only east. If the other D-pad directions are available in a game (ie. northeast, northwest, southeast, and southwest), the raised configuration does aide one in pressing the pad in the right direction.
The graphics on the controller itself are not glossy like the Special edition Halo Controllers (Xbox 360 Wireless Halo 3 Spartan Controller) and their texture is reminiscent of the matte black xbox controller. Also, instead of the raised thumbstick texture, Microsoft decided to go with a concave center using the same rubbery texture which I also believe is an improvement.
For the first few days, the right thumbstick was squeaking rather loudly whenever it was moved. This was very annoying once I noticed it. After a few days of use, however, the squeak went away. I just had to break it in.
Overall, this controller looks great and fulfills every expectation.
