These Massive Original Xbox Controllers Were Transformed into Xbox 360 Controllers, for Halo

Kotaku - As promised, Microsoft's Halo team is bringing Duke to their big Halofest celebration this weekend—that is, the massive Duke controller that originally sold with the original Xbox. The Halo crew commissioned hardware modder Ben Heck to transform eight classic Dukes into wireless pads that will work with Xbox 360s. Watch the video to see how that works—and to see what some lucky people at this weekend's Penny Arcade Expo might actually win.

I really hated the original xbox control, i was younger when i had one so my hands were smaller and this control was massive, and still is. The D-Pad was also bad, but i was happy when they came out with a smaller one.

I wonder if many people will use this for their 360.

I loved it!
I don't have big hands but I felt this controller was very big that it feels like you in total control of the game with this big son of a b*tch

Lol i was only 8 when i got the original xbox and for me i thought they were just to big lol. Still pulled through and enjoyed playing 007 and Halo with it.

I loved it. IDK why but heavy bulky things feel comfortable to me.

Ahh the good ol' fat xbox controller.
It brings so many memories playing halo ce with this beast.

Seems like everyone else hated it, I thought it was great my hands aren't even that big either but I never had a problem with it.

Many fond memories using that beast ;D

I did not like it. Black and white buttons were just awkward

360 controller is so great though, fits in your hands so well and the triggers and sticks feel great. Massive improvement IMO

I dunno why anyone would ever want to use this again.

The smaller version was a lot better, and the 360 pad is one of the best ever made imo.

The Duke!

But seriously MS you see that d-pad for the S controller? thats what should have been carried over to the 360!
