It's an attractive controller, and I can see people buying it, but I'd never pay £119.99 for a controller. That being said, that d-pad should be on all controllers! Quote

That's definitely something I might have to try out, I'd love a controller that felt as expensive as my other peripherals.

Still unless it's a full Magnesium Alloy casing, it probably won't. I'd love to see Dells XPS division make a pad. I mean that would make no sense whatsoever but they sure know how to choose materials. Carbon fibre with a satin clear coat, aluminium edging, soft touch mag front, maybe some gorilla glass going on. ...and leather, forgot leather. Maybe alcantara. Actually if they could make a T500 RS with this kind of finish while they were at it. Then give Beyer levels of customization... I would literally look at it and wish I had any money, just at all.
