Could be defective, but the D-pad on the 360 controllers have always been bad. Not the controller to buy if you're a huge D-pad user.

Oh crap. I bought it with the intention to play fighting games like SF4, SFXT, and Skullgirls.

The 360 controller isnt great for fighting games. I recommend using a ps3 controller or a 360 fightstick. The ps3 fightstick also works but you'll probably have to buy a usb card to get it to work.

I would like to add, if your going to play games with a controller, get pinnacle gamer profile, while it does cost 60 bucks, its really worth it, all you have to do is download a profile, and bam, instant action, it really works and is a great program

Did I bought a bootleg? It looks something like this.

Judging by that picture, it looks like the left analog is smooth/is not sunken in like the right analog.
It could just be the image, though.

The official wired controller I have is practically identical to my Xbox 360 wireless ones - including divets on both analogs.

It's possible MS revised the controller at some point to smooth out the left analog, but best guess is that it's a bootleg you have there.

I didn't took that picture. I googled it since it looks like the one I bought.

Might just shell out money for another gamepad for fighters exclusively.
