    Cant see how this can really help to be honest. Yes, you may get a more satisfying "click" when pushing the dpad, but will it help with the rubbish ability for the dpad to register corner movements? No. Its a crap dpad and this wont really change its responsiveness, it will just make it feel better falsely. Bit like putting a really noisy exhaust on a really shitty car. It might sound mean, but its still a clapped out Ford Fiesta.

    If you're really looking for an Dpad improvement then you'd be better off with a controller shell from Evilcontrollers.
    They got a 4 button dpad shell.
    Much like the PS3.

    Would it be possible to simply buy the convertible d-pad meant for those SE controllers and replace the standard plug on a regular controller?

    I at least have the tools to open a controller up, and I am beginning to think that would be a far more cost effective way to upgrade/pimp it out.

    Yes.
    But you'll have to cut out some of the plastic.

    Sicklyboy showed me once on how to do it

    Hope it's a bit clear to do.
    Otherwise, PM Sickly about it ;]
