It bumps against the sides of its enclosure as you try to push it to its limits, causing mistake and frustration. No more! This video contains instructions for shaving down the outer rim of the D-pad, allowing it to move more precisely and greatly improving the quality of your play in games that use the D-pad a lot like Oblivion and Street Fighter IV.
