Xbox One Controller’s New Buttons Revealed

IGN:Microsoft has explained the names and functionality of those mysterious new buttons on Xbox One’s controller where Start and Back appeared on Xbox 360. According to a Microsoft representative, these buttons are named “Menu” and View.”

The story is too old to be commented.

The reveal would have been more interesting if they had talked about those buttons and showed how they could be used instead of know. But it's interesting to see that both companies replaced the Start/Select buttons that we had for ages.

Yeah, the controller is beautiful, I like the look of the face buttons, too bad probably will never own one.

Crystallis3474d ago

That D-pad is still bad, but other then that, its a great looking controller.

crimsonfox3474d ago (Edited 3474d ago )

I really like the way the XYBA buttons are shaped too.To me the Dpad still looks like ass though.

EDIT:Crystallis beat me to it!

darthv723474d ago

what the usb port on the top is for.

Is it for pc connectivity or perhaps charging the controller?

FamilyGuy3474d ago

I agree wholeheartedly, those face buttons look sick, but chances of me owning and X1 now (pre-E3 thought) are slim to nill.

SilentNegotiator3473d ago

....what was wrong with "start", "back", "select"?

I guess "start" needed to change to "menu", but still...."view"? "share"? Ugh...

JokesOnYou3473d ago (Edited 3473d ago )

Maria -Great you don't want a X1, why are you in so many X1 threads? lol, rhetorical question we all know why.

Crystallis, yeah so says a guy who only looked at pics, ironicly those with hands on say different.

Because she's part of the vocal minority, the majority a too busy actually playing games.

So the "Menu and View" is equivalent to Sony's share button basically.

So they are exactly the same as start and select but have new names.... great.

The controller also reminds me of this:

Where is the Got Dam Keyboard and mouse? just kidding.

So many people like the Xbox Controller that it would be a CRIME to change it.

Maybe add Handle Bar streamers on it would be cool

Its prolly the on & off button for tv mode.

ThanatosDMC3474d ago

Hmmm... what happened to voice commands?

ltachiUchiha3474d ago

Lol I was being sarcastic. The kinect is going to do that. kinect turn on nfl tv.

ThanatosDMC3474d ago

Hahhaha... im making fun of the kinect. Wasted money on the first one. I understood you.

animegamingnerd3474d ago

this controller will be only relevant as a controller for PC gamers

ZodTheRipper3474d ago (Edited 3474d ago )

It'll probably be too costly for that. I'm still using my DS3 on my PC and it works like it should. If I'd buy a controller especially for PC games, I'd rather go with the 360 once the Xbox One is out, since it will be much cheaper without a big difference in functions or quality.

josephayal3474d ago

For some reason I actually like the look of this controller/buttons etc, I won’t be buying one

ComBaTs0uL3474d ago

You guys on n4g need to chill, Microsoft said before the conference that they were concentrating on the console and saving e3 for games. But who am I kidding its cool to hate.

SpiralTear3474d ago

It's not cool to hate. The gaming audience wants to like this console, but Microsoft's online policies, overuse of non-game media, unappealing motion controls, used game fees, un-removable hard drive, poor first impressions, and the fact that they aren't addressing any of the important questions directly are all making it really, really, REALLY hard to like this device.

MariaHelFutura3474d ago

Microsoft didn't talk about the console though, they barely mentioned the specs or XBL. All they did was showed TV and faked using Kinect for the OS. So it wasn't really about the hardware.

ZodTheRipper3474d ago

And you shouldn't be so optimistic after seeing how this gen and the console reveal turned out. Microsoft definately will announce some cool stuff at E3 but as soon as people have bought their console, they'll focus on getting the most money out of those people instead of doing them any favors.

Salooh3473d ago

Let's say all of 15 exclusives are real games not kinect. The things we complain about are not just about games. DRM / No used games / Focus on tv and kinect / X1 less powerful then the ps4 in gpu / 3 GB of ram go to OS which means 5 gb of slow ram going for games / Depend on online tooo much. Kinect always look at you. Old limitation still there like paying for online and controller still uses battery ..

If you don't get this then silence is better for you then trolling..
