I have seen many pics and comments that the button placement on the xbox controller is bad.. its too big and uncomfortable. Well if you look at the jap one, its smaller and better to grip with better button placement.. anyways, a friend of mine has started a online petition to have microsoft give us the jap one instead, please sign it if ya have the time :)

but if we get the Japanese controller it will be too small...unless they scale up the size but keep the layout. just a thought

I think that the japan controller looks terrible
Atleast give the american one a chance
I bet once you get used to it you won't even notice it (says mother)

No way, man! The US controller is going to rock. The Jap one is smaller because the Japs have smaller hands. It just might take some getting used to at first.

they make the controller look a certain way for a reason. the xbox made there controller look like that for a very good reason it is like 2 in 1. the upper buttons if held right are good for like fighting games and such while the bottom are like the arrow keys and mouse which is good for games like fps.

The japanese one is a little smaller, plus its better grip and is more like a sidewinder. Trust me, i have friends that have tried both and liked the jap one better.

Well if its better grip you want, then ask for better gripping on the American Controller.
