4.0 out of 5 stars A welcome change to the original controller, 11 April 2005
This review is from: Xbox Official Controller S (Video Game)
As someone with fairly sizeable hands, I had no real issues with the original XBOX controller. It worked fine for me. However, after having bought the S as a second controller, it's no wonder that it's now the controller shipped with the console.
Firstly, size. It's obviously great for anyone with smaller hands, but even those with bigger hands will like it - unlike the old controller, your hands don't ache after a couple of hours gaming, and the positioning of the joysticks just feels totally right. The ABXY buttons are actually better - they're circular, rather than elliptical, and have a smooth top rather than the ridge of the original, meaning more comfort. The build quality is actually better - the controller S has a solid feel, and sits perfectly in the hand.
The cable is also slightly thicker, adding to the quality feel of the product. One slight gripe - the black and white buttons sometimes feel a bit too embedded in the controller, but apart from that it's fantastic.
