In a twist on traditional gaming console controllers Hori the Japanese peripheral manufacturer has started teasing images of their new Horipad 3 gaming controller designed for the PS3. The new Horipad 3 is fitted with a range of features to enhance your game playing prowess but one innovative and unique feature is the addition of a rotating D-Pad.
Rather than forcing you to use a straight D-Pas te new rotating one allow you to align the control to match your gaming style for comfort and best of all more precise control.
As you can see by the instructions below the D-Pad can be angled to suit your hands and thumb position while gaming and also features adjustable analog stick sensitivity, three different levels of turbo fire and a quick activation button situated on the back of the controller.
The Horipad Pro will be released in Japan on July 21st but unfortunately there are currently no International shipping dates or prices as yet, but Amazon does already stock Hori controllers so might well a batch of the new Horipad 3 controllers very soon.
