In a post on its website yesterday, the team behind open-source console Ouya announced some changes to its controller based on repeated complaints it has received from developers.
As one of the highest funded Kickstarter projects ever, the Ouya team has been insistent on working with their investors, and at least for now seems to be sticking to their word.
The biggest change — and apparently the most frequent gripe — is to the controller's D-pad, which was originally an almost flat disk shape. Now, the Ouya controller sports a nifty looking indented "cross" shaped D-pad, for added precision.
Other less notable changes include increased sensitivity in the touch pad, triggers that hug a little closer to the body of the peripheral, rubberised thumbsticks and a more "snug" battery bay. Hopefully Ouya can maintain positive interaction like this as the console's "early 2013" launch date approaches.
