Love it or hate it, Fuchal at NextGG.com takes a look at what makes the Xbox 360's controller so appealing...

The keypad add-on is pretty cool too!

Might be PS3 fan boys just jealous of lacking rumble.

and i've used a few over the years. just a shame the d-pad isn't of the same quality as the rest of the pad. i just hope microsoft do a sony, and use this pad now for every generation of xbox....imo it's gonna take some beating the 360 pad.

They should as it means the pc FINALLY has a standard controller.

It works so well on my pc.

because it's really all about what you're use to and prefer. I own all three systems, and the 360 controller just fits my hands best. I even keep rumble turned off...I just like the way it feels better, regardless of rumble.

@ Capt Chaos .......PS3 has the Dual Shock 3 of which I own 2. Anyway personally I don't like the Xbox controller, mainly because I don't like the way the triggers feel(both l1, l2, r1, r2) and having the left analogue up where the d-padd should be feels un-natural.

Everytime I go over to a friends place, we play RSV2 or Halo 3 and I just cannot stand the controller or Halo 3 for that matter.

seeing as they made the worst controller ever for the original xbox they new what to do for the next one

DARK WITNESS2874d ago

it was the worst " looking ", but i must say... in my hands it felt the best.

The ps2 controller ( and indeed the ps3 ) tend to give me cramp in my fingures when i play some games.

This is a case of personal choice, but i do prefer the 360 pad to anything else in terms of comfort. sure the d-pad is not the best, but looking at what you normally need it for it does not make much difference. On the flip side i wish one of the analogue sticks on the ps3 was where the d-pad is on that. i would be able to use it much better.

still, its personal choice. anyhow, is this really news ? its just a " 360 pad rocks "... ya, so do apples !

...the Duke was just perfect for my hands...
The new one is okay but after 5 or 6 hours my pinkies start to cramp cause the thing is just too small and there's no place for them.

Somebody ought to make a new version of the Duke.
In black only, of course...
