Thanks for the head up. I got (this) on my windows phone. I will buy this game.
I hope Sega can give us the real Panzer Dragoon without Kinect shit.

Say what you will about MS and Kinect, it's a damned shame that they got most of the old dev together for a Panzer Dragoon game before Sega did. I don't have a Kinect at the moment so i hope the delay was for controller support, unless it's going to show up on the nextbox. Then there is this:

…Because Crimson Dragon was designed as a multiplayer game, we couldn’t have a single character focus. But in Crimson Dragon RPG we would have a strong main character. In the shooter, players learn about the world and who the enemies are. If I make a ‘Crimson Dragon Saga’ it would directly connect to the ending of the first Crimson Dragon. The shooter is just a prologue to the bigger story. So if you want to see a Crimson Dragon RPG, you should get the original Crimson Dragon so you can see the story. And if I make a Crimson Dragon RPG, I don’t think it’ll have turn-based battles. It’ll be like the original shooter with action-RPG elements.”

Something like that needs to happen on the nextbox.

I think the new d-pad works pretty damn good(compared to the only one), I'm always up for change we might get something even better.

It's definitely a lot better, but there's always room for improvement. I'm curious to see if they really even change the controller up all that much besides the d-pad.

That Dpad is pretty good. Unfortunately after less than 18 months the right stick keeps drifting to the left.

Have you tried cleaning it?

I've seen this happen with my controllers and cleaning them usually fixes the problem.

What I use:
Cleaning wipes,
Cotton swabs,
Alcohol,
a bowl to hold the screws,
small phillips(old dpad).

The battery casing is definitely the weakest part of the controller right now, I've seen them crack and make the controller basically unusable without bracing the battery into the casing.

They constantly update the 360 controller, here's a patent that includes full grip pressure sensitivity!

That's actually quite intriguing, but I wonder (like the PS4's mini touchpad) how that could be used creatively.

I'm not a Console Warrior, but I am liking what I know of PS4 more at this time. I'm excited for next-gen (which started with WiiU, but I'm very meh on it for now until games come out).

I'll wear a Ballmerized version of this, giving MS a shot at winning me over. I think it's a long shot right now, but I'll reserve judgment.

That's what I thought too but I saw Aegies tweet that Microsoft was thinking of doing a breakable controller.
He could have just been kidding.

Yeah, I thought that was a joke but who knows at this point. The PS4 has a touchpad, Move, and 3D Camera support so anything is possible.

I hope we get a big surprise from a third part like Fallout 4 or something. Wouldn't be exclusive, but maybe exclusive content to get people interested in the Nextbox version.
