Get Familiar With the Xbox One's Controller

By Sam Gibbs on at

The Xbox One is coming. When precisely, we don't know (what the hell, Microsoft?) but it'll be around November. One of the most important things for any console is how the controller handles. Microsoft took the time to refine and perfect an already decent Xbox controller. Here's what's new and improved.

Apparently the joypad's new ergonomic lines should allow both faster reactions and longer gaming sessions, at least according to one of Microsoft's senior product designers, Quintin Morris.

Here's a little infographic Microsoft produced to show you what's actually changed, because you could be forgiven for thinking basically nothing had. Mind you, why mess with a good thing? If it aint broke, don't fix it, right? And, oh my word, the battery now fits INSIDE the controller -- that's truly revolutionary right there. [Microsoft via Kotaku]
