"I still have no clue what purpose it serves."3.0 starson by Nicktyelor
Pros: D-Pad? Looks cool.
Cons: Color scheme is cool looking but lackluster and the absence of color is bland (just like what Apple did to iTunes (boring)). I honestly still don't know what's so great about the D-pad. Ridiculous price.
Summary: I think until I buy one of these, I won't get the frikin D-pad. I sort of get how it raises up into separate direction buttons instead of the circle, but is this really necessary?? Also the lack of colored buttons is probably confusing to some people who rely on colors rather than the letters (yeah yeah I know about people who are color-blind). I just don't think this thing is worth the $65 price tag. I could buy a pretty decent game or two crappy games with that much, or 3 used games (buy 2 get 1 free) when I shop at game stop before December 13th, haha (no I am not advertising them).
