Our Love Affair with the Xbox 360 Controller

Our Love Affair with the Xbox 360 Controller

"How do we love thee, 360 controller? We count the ways.

Sure, we've had a chance to play around with the Xbox 360 controller before, but with over 80 playable X360 kiosks at the Tokyo Game Show this year, this is first time we've really been able to spend a good amount of quality time with the controller. Over the past three days we've all been touching, holding and grasping the Xbox 360 controller, and yes, there's even been a little cuddling, spooning, embracing and snuggling going on.

David's Impressions

TGS not only gave us the opportunity to play more Xbox 360 games than ever before is also allowed us to put our hands all over Microsoft's glorious new controller. Sure the Revolution controller has all the functionality of the Dreamcast fishing rod, but how will it adjust to racers, shooters, hack 'n' slashers, and platformers? We already know the answer in the case of 360's little white peripheral.

The beauty of the 360 controller is that it is small and lightweight without feeling cheap. It also posses an excellent layout that puts every button within easy reach of your thumbs. When prompted to press the start button I found myself lifting my hand off of the controller out of instinct. This was unnecessary seeing as I could easily reach both of the buttons next to the central guide button with my thumbs. The guide button itself is an excellent addition that quickly brings up the Live menu. We entered the Live guide on numerous occasions out of curiosity and the irresistible urge to push a shiny sphere surrounded by glowing lights." [more]
