What is with MS not being able to make a dpad?

Seriously they have never made a controller with a good d-pad.

Even though the d-pad is "better" than the 360/Original D-Pad its still mushy and not very good.

I like how it cost one hundred million U.S. dollars to develop.

At least this one is usable lol. The 360 one was complete garbage.

It is like reinventing the wheel because somebody owns a patent on the wheel that we all like the best already.

Nintendo hit it out of the park, and the Sony version works pretty great. Ms doesn't have the option to just use those designs though so you get to where we are at this point. At least it's better than the Genesis D-pad. I like pretty much everything else better on the Xbox One pad. 360 bumpers were better though.

Snes D-pad forever.

They still are pretty much comparable in their use. Using it for selecting weapons(gears) calling in kill streaks(COD) was always fine because it was a simple button push.

Anything that requires more fine controls like a fighter or 2D platformer I will still be using the PS4 for like I did with the PS3.

yes. either that, or you have a faulty dpad, as evidenced by your describing it as "mushy." try using another one. if it also feels mushy, then it's probably you. it should feel sturdy and clicky.
