MMGN: While the controller for the Xbox One looks a lot like its predecessor, Microsoft boasts an impressive list of at least 40 improvements.
am I the only one who think this controller looks ugly? 360 controller looks better.
It's more reminiscent of the first Xbox controller... I like the (X, A, B, Y) buttons, but overall it's not the best looking design.
Yeah, first thing I thought. Not the Duke so much but the Controller S.
From what I'm reading, it's more comfortable and responsive with other enhancements. Looks aren't everything, imo, even though I believe it looks fine.
definitely agree. the buttons on the new controller look great, but the top part of the controller looks a lot like a weird add on that shouldnt be there to begin with. if anything, they should have made the glossy top part sit flush witht the rest of the controller. it looks as if its a little pushed back from where it meets the matte finish. also not too crazy about the pointed bottom edges, but im sure that was more a decision ms made because it was somehow superior to the old, so well see how it plays out.
The new controller is the only thing that I have found interesting to date about the Xbox One.
That's funny... looks like a GameCube controller to me...
A GameCube controller looks nothing like that.
There's nothing different in terms of design. It's the same controller.
Benjaminko, you have obviously never seen a GameCube controller. Google it and compare. Not even close.

At least it doesnt need batteries
Yeah that sucks it doesnt come with a usb charger for your controller, instead its like the 360 launched controllers where u have to buy AA batteries. If you dont have a battery charger then you will have to buy that or resort to buying alot of AA batteries. So last ten if u ask me imo. Smh.
Just like the 360, there will be battery packs that u recharge on a seperate charger.
I meant so last gen. Error on my part, sorry all.
You can buy a AA battery charger and 12 rechargable AA batteries for the price of 1 360 recharge pack. Took me 6 years to figure that one out. :-(
From what I saw there was compartment like the current one you can open. I get feeling they will charge still for the rechargeable battery. Not really checked the new on the controller so I maybe wrong if they have said it will cone with. Then that would be good.
I don't think so. It just so happens to be removable in case the battery fails or something. But I'm 99% sure that it's rechargeable from the get go.
Nope I was right AA battery compartment. http://kotaku.com/the-tiny-... After the 360 rechargable batteries I wouldnt buy them again anyway. Never seemed to last more than 4 month. Bought Duracell rechargable batteries in the end.
at least sony steped it up and made the dualshock more comfortable. i be getting the meanest hand cramps in bf3 since i grab the ds3 tight when im in a tense situation. the bigger/more ergonomic handles is a plus from me.
Love this new design, made by gamer's for gamer's, glad they addressed the D-pad and controller drift issues.
I agree. the d-pad fix is awesome.
Looking good, plus Major Nelson said the controller has some new features they haven't released yet.
My guess is that the sticks can rotate for some reason. My reason for thinking this is that they have that new tread around the top of the stick which if you look from the side is reminiscent of the wheel on a wheel mouse. So maybe you can turn them like dials/knobs
The controller is probably the only thing I like about the system. It looks comfortable and the d pad looks pretty good and a lot more functional. Can't believe they still want you to buy a battery pack though.
The battery is rechargeable mate. It happens to be removable. In case something happens to the battery.
To my understanding, the battery pack is included. It's just an open hatch so you can replace the battery if it were to ever go bad. Much better than completely tearing down your controller and removing the battery and replacing it or having to buy a new controller.
Thank you for clearing it up guys. Thats not bad at all then. I always preferred the wired x 7box controller but I'm sure they improved this one. Can't wait to get my hands on the ds4 to see the difference on that one.
Yea I like Xbox One's controller. The material looks good. I wonder if you can still knock out your buddy with that thing...I know with the 360 controllers, you could KO somebody.
Best controller ever made! Period.
The Xbox360 controller is, the Xbox One I don't know. What use to be in the middle, why is the X power on button sitting on top like that. Looks like I will have to stretch my thumbs to reach.
The X power button is the guide button and I had hit it multiple times during matches because like you said, you can hit it with your thumb when it slips during gameplay. I am glad they move it on top so it can be avoided during matches. I am sure this is a feedback they got from a lot of X360 players.
Whatever suit your needs. That button also powers on/turns on your console.
You must be joking PigPen? They make numerous improvements and you whinge about them moving the X button about a cm? Your poor thumb!!!
I like the controller, but that port makes me wonder if they will make a touchscreen that would fit their kinda like the Keyboard on the 360 controller. It would be a very good idea in my opinion and something people wont see coming. That would make it the best controller ever made. Just my opinion though.
Sony should learn from Microsoft controller is the most important.
They did, the PS4 fix alot of things that make the PS3 inferior to the 360 controller like the triggers, but both Xbox one and PS4 look ugly.
Nope. Even PS4 fanboys admit the Xbox Controller is the best. It looks and feels better. It is the superior controller period.
I really like the new controller, I hope the triggers don't numb your finger when you press them for too long or repeatedly....
I wish the triggers were still concave. That is a favorite of mine on the 360 ones. Having that trigger feel just allowed me to not pull heavy on it, which helped in some games where the pressure sensitive feature was essential in the gameplay.
batteries haha, looks rank. i'll stick with the sexy ds4
kinda cool contoller
Hate the blobs of plastic used as the triggers and shoulders. Looks so cheap and tacky, a bit like the Ouya's controller. Other than that its just the same old thing.
Looks great stick grips should last longer I hope a pc version is in the works the 360 wired one works great with modern games.
Best controllers ever are the 6 button Genesis controller, and the Gamecube controller, the DualShock 1, and the SNES controller. The worst are the Saturn analog controller and the prototype PS3 controller.
