ok i bought an xbox controller already cause i was gonna get one anyway and let me tell you it felt great it just fits your hands and you almost instantly get a fell for the configuration of the thing and when you can pick it up and hold and not have it attached to a kisok it feels even better. i mean it looks big but the buttons are well placed and easy to reach. and the cord my god i mean 9.8 feet sounds big, but it looks even bigger

I went to my local Toys R' Us the other evening and got to put my hands on an Xbox contoller for the first time. I think it fits perfectly in an adults hand. I didn't have to strain to reach any buttons and it was remarkably light considering its size. There isn't a lot of time left until I should get my Xbox and I can't wait for that day to get here.

15 days and counting....

I like it, too...very comfortable. They are similar to the DC controllers but much more improved. I actually liked the controllers better than sex...well, maybe not.:D

I've tried out the xbox controller and just can't understand why so many mags bashed it. It fit very comfortably in my hands.. I can understand how it might affect small children from playing but this machine's for the older group ... It's fine and really suggest you obtain an extra one..

I tried it today and I thought it was great. It fit really well in my hands and after a few seconds I barley knew I was holding it.

The munch demo I played reacted really well to the controller. Everything I wanted to do I could do. This system is going to rock.

The only down side I can see is the size it might be difficult for children and small adults to use. Especially women like my wife.

You know, if you think about it, both of the things you said are major pluses! More game time for you! hehe

When I first held one, I thought it was the most comfortable controller I have ever held...it's perfect and feels like it was tailored for my hands. But, what can you expect from the most brilliant game console ever made? Answer: Absolute excellence!
