Dual Shock D-Pad is 360 Degrees. | PS3Blog.net
PES 2010 announced it will have full 360 degree movement and in a post on PES Fan I noticed a quote from Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH;
360-degree control will be available on both the PLAYSTATION 3, Xbox 360 and PC-DVD versions of the game via the analogue sticks on the respective controllers. The system will allow players to spread the ball with ease, opening up new attacking and defensive possibilities. PLAYSTATION 3 owners will also benefit when using the Dual Shock’s D-Pad, but Xbox 360 and Win D-Pads are limited to eight-directional control due to technical limitations of the hardware.
Interesting to see that the D-pad on the Dual Shock can offer 360 Degree movement, I was not aware this was possible. Please note that the other consoles will have 360 via analogue sticks only.
