The original Xbox controller was bulky.I was always getting my ... whooped in a game of Halo.Now that I have the Xbox Controller S,things are much better.
Xbox Controller S is Microsoft's answer to hundreds of customer complaints.It's made for people with smaller hands.If you have small children that have trouble with the old controller,Xbox controller S is the way to go.
The button layout has been rearranged.The black and white buttons are below the four primary buttons (A,B,X,and Y).Also,this controller is similar to the Sony PlayStation's one.
Also,the D-Pad has been redesigned,too.Instead of the old controller's bumpy pad,this D-Pad is more like that of the Nintendo GameCube.
This controller is also much sturdyer than the old one.With the previous controller,you can hear it craking and squeaking inside,but on this one,it's completaly solid.This is a very,very,VERY high quality controller.Don't listen to the people that whine about their new controllers breaking;they just don't take very good care of them.
Overall,even if you have big hands,I reccomend buying the new Xbox Controller S!
