Developer feedback brings change to OUYA controller

OUYA has made some changes to its controller based on feedback from the developer kits, including a cross-style d-pad, more rubberized thumbsticks, and tweaked triggers.


The Android-based console OUYA has sent out its developer consoles to let aspiring Android devs tinker. The roll-out is proving to be more than just a viral campaign, though, as the feedback has already resulted in alterations to the controller.

A post on the OUYA Blog details the changes. The D-pad has changed to a more cross-style, the thumbsticks have added a rubberized top, and the triggers have been tweaked. The team also promises the touch pad will be more responsive, and the battery bay will be made out of a better material.

"Since the release of the OUYA Dev Console last month, developers around the world have sent us a ton of emails, comments, videos and forum posts… all about our controller," the blog states. "A lot of the feedback underscored things we were already changing, some comments were totally new, but ALL were great to hear."
