They spent $100M for a controller that is almost identical to the previous generation controller, but with different textures for the thumbsticks?

Smell-O-Vision ?!? Would that be some sort of special port?

abhorrent1: Xbone blows. Get a PS4

Hey!  Thanks for your contribution.

Back on topic.  I've always liked Dan Hsu, His interview of Peter Moore was on point back at the 360 launch, and he always seems to call it like he sees it.  I'm looking forward to the rest of this feature on the Xbone's controller.

In the very limited time I had with it, I really liked the new controller.  Mainly the fact that the battery compartment is out of the way, I can now curl my fingers around the bottom was a big plus for me.  No longer tucking them along the sides of the compartment.

The individual trigger rumbles were a nice touch with Forza during some areas where I was drifting off the edge of the track.  The D-Pad was a huge improvement.  Pulling off some combos during my time with KI was far easier for a casual gamer like myself who won't buy the arcade stick.

The one issue I had were the bumpers.  It seemed like I had to hit them a little more firm than what I was used to, but it wasn't really that big of a deal.

It's a nice controller overall.  I'm glad they just refined it, and didn't mess with a good thing.

/4 more days until I get boned by the xbone!
//KI and BF4 will be mine
///maybe Forza too
