About this Product

I was sick and tired of selecting the wrong weapons in Gears of War because of the XBox controller's sloppy D-Pad. Mods to the controller online required inserting a crappy piece of plastic, sanding hard to reach areas, and/or soldering new internals, which is more time consuming than just a direct replacement of which I desired.


This direct replacement for the D-Pad is meant to help eliminate D-Pad pressing problems by giving a larger pad and a more accurate feel to which direction you are pressing. Corner directions are still possible with this mod, and this mod does not require any modifications to your controller other than disassembling it. This makes it possible to return your controller back to the original working, and cosmetic condition, other mods cannot do this.


Note: This mod may require simple drilling of the screw holes to get the best fit. Depending on if shapeways prints it up, or to the sides, can affect the size and shape of the holes. I'd rather there be material that can easily be removed than have a hole that is too big and the screw won't bite. I don't recommend this to anyone who has not disassembled their controller or is not technically inclined in any way.


This is the 2.0 version. The guide ring has been removed, and the shape filled in to cover the hole that is under the D-Pad better, but still made smaller than the original D-Pad for greater movement. Before buying, please disassemble your controller to compare your d-pad to those in the images. If the mounting doesn't look anywhere close, do not purchase. I can only make it fit to controllers I own, and if Microsoft made any adjustments to the d-pad in a newer model, this won't fit.
