you're way to obvious to be funny buddy

Last gen's controllers didn't really seem to be as accurate. Whenever I play an old ps2/xbox game with the respective controllers, it feels less accurate than when I'm playing on a PS3/360 game.

(Keeping in mind, I always turn aim-assist off)

Only Shaq could hold those old Xbox controllers. Bad move I'd say.

Warprincess1162468d ago

I know. That controller is really hideous. I don't know how that controller actually got approved.

Cwalk8162468d ago

I would have to think sense it was Microsoft's first real console, that didn't really know what they were doing in that aspect.

PirateThom2468d ago

Microsoft had a ton of PC gaming controllers though...

gamingdroid2468d ago (Edited 2468d ago )

Yeah, the large original Xbox controller wasn't pretty to look at or use for that matter. The smaller Xbox Controller 'S', was much better and very ergonomic.

Speaking of large controllers:

But the Wii U probably takes the cake for being the biggest console controller:

kingdoms2468d ago (Edited 2468d ago )

The new xbox pad(at the time) had new button layouts with more buttons and slots for assories they never had experience with. I never used those fat cards things that go into the controller Obviously Microsoft got some design ideas from Sega due to being involved with the dreamcast development. I loved the old controllers because I have bigger hands.

I actually liked it. But I have large hands so that's probably just me...

BlackKnight2468d ago

Man it fit really good in your hand, it is not bad at all. Still though, the 360 one is still better, but I loved the first Xbox 1 controller too.

Apparently no one likes Futurama jokes :(

SilentNegotiator2468d ago

Despite being a huge fan of Futurama, the reference honestly eluded me.

Besides, I've heard that joke in a lot of variations. The one that always comes to mind is when Patrick (LOL, spongebob) buys a bunch of pictures of that guy when he was fat.

Kon2468d ago

That controller looks really big. Not for people with small hands

maddfoxx2468d ago

Or people with average sized hands. I really hoped they're taking about the smaller redesigned xbox controllers.

The Whopper Hamburger of controllers makes a come back, very funny!
