Although I don't own my own Xbox - I always play someone else's because I already own a PS2, I never-the-less feel obligated to add my thoughts on the matter. The new Xbox controller S is one sleek piece of equipment - FAR superior to that original monstrousity of a controller those idiots at Microsoft initially came up with (it was that super ugly, gigantic, and clunky original controller that turned me off from buying the Xbox when it came out). The new controller S is visually appealing to the eyes. Although the PS2 controller is still slightly more attractive, the controller S is an extremely close second. The controller s is smaller and handier than the original, has easier to use controls, and is VERY comfortable to grip. Just compare the different controllers of Xbox, PS2,and Gamecube by holding them in your hands, and fiddling around with the controls. You will see that the Xbox controller S has the nicest fit of them all on the palms of your hands (the Gamecube is the least comfortable). Ironically the controller S was originally designed for the Xbox release in Japan because the original controller was deemed too big for Japanese players. I really think those folks at Microsoft should plan things a little better before jumping in to the game....

I didn't mind this controller at all in the beginning. But after playing Galaga for a while, the thumb gets quite tiring since we have to press the A button quickly for the entire game. I play the same game on GC, it's easier and I get higher scores. I wish there's even a smaller version of the Xbox controller that's designed with women and kids in mind. My conclusion -- do NOT play Galaga type games on Xbox, play it on GC or PS2 :)

when i got my xbox i got 2 controllers as well and yesterday when i got my first multiplayer xbox game one of the controllers broke down. i dont know if it was infected or if it broke because of all the times i got pissed off at losing mlb slugfest and threw the controller really hard on the ground but if your gonna get this: dont throw the controoler and dont mix up the wires like the dumbass that iam and since i live in the middle of nowhere (la paz, bolivia) and even if you do live in any other city in the world buy a back up controller. and if its my xobx i guess all throw my xbox to the ground as well.

the controller "s" for x box is probably the best thing x box has ever invented! their previoce model [smelled]!!!!!! way to large! i could hardly put my hands around it. thank god for "s"! the bad part is the price. its 2x in price as much as the origanil, but i guess it pays off for better game playage. the new model has a new lay out for the start, select, white, and black buttons. and the size is a lot smaller! it used to curve out. they also added little feet as handles on the bottom. kinda like the ps2.
so, the "s" rocks for the design but [smells] for price. u pick!

This is a great controller.Especially after all the complaints microsoft had got about its original controller being too bulky(Personally speaking I never really had problems with even that).But since I got Xbox Controller S, I havent touched the big one.This controller gives a better grip,buttons are softer and their positioning is better(the overall feel is quite good).I played rallisport challenge with this controller and beat the whole game. Even in a game like rallisport where precision is required in accelaration and braking to successsfully master the tracks,I did it without any problems using this controller.Also the vibration feel is very good.So if you are looking to buy an Xbox controller and are not being able to decide which,just go for this smaller one,Controller S without any hesitation.Quality hardware.

This controller is great. You are able to play games much easier with this one than with the first manifest. This controller should be considered better than the dual shock because it is more comfortable and for people like me who play games for long periods of time that is a plus.

My favorite controller of all time is this amazingly great Xbox Controller S.I couldent find anything wrong with it.And yes,I think its even better than the Dual Shock 2 (and much improved over that original Xbox controller that was designed just for NBA players hands).Yes,the Dual Shock 2 was very good,but it wasen't really that great for FPS.This great Controller S works perfect with every type of game on any genre.
This controller is greatly designed too.Its also features the best quality of any controller,ever...And I mean that when I say it.Most controllers can break easily if you throw them against something(like the PS2 Dual Shock 2 and Super Nintendo ones)but this one wont because the quality is so good.
It also fits well in just about anyones hands(but the original will fit better in your hands if you are a NBA player).Its very comfterable,too.So this is the best controller ever made.Don't even think about getting the original Xbox controller - defiantly get this instead at all costs.
