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.
Don't get me started on PS2 and GC controllers (a camera button??), but I think the Xbox was innovative in designing a controller for someone with hands bigger and stronger than a 5 year old's. They're durable, too. I threw mine out a second floor window onto concrete (I don't take losing well) and it has barely a scratch. I accidentally broke my friend's PS2 controller by just shifting it in my hands wrong (ultimately not my fault, for my hands were much stronger and versed to useing a tough controller).
So, while technically this controller does the exact same functions as the original, I couldn't see myself wielding one anytime soon. Cheers to those who whined until Xbox put this out. I only wished you whined for something that really mattered, like more RPGs or less Sports titles.
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!
I'm old school, I remember the old Nintendo, Sega, etc... joysticks from the past. Those were easy to use for everyone, young and old, with large or small hands. The Xbox Controller S is an innovative controller but when it comes to comfort, it is extremely lacking.
