That controller looks pretty cool :p Does anyone know where i can find one of those babies. Some people say that it looks like the Pelican controller that they seel here in America. I don't think that it looks like it. :cool:

I feel fine with the normal controller. I think it fits like a glove. If the controller was sold at a walmart for the same price as the US one, Id buy it just to see whats so special about it, plus you always need another controller. But I wouldnt be willing to pay a specialty store extra money or some ebayer extra money just because it is only sold in japan. I see a lot of people seem to be complaining about how they want the Japanese controller and Im sure is MS could make money off of selling the Japanese controller here in the US, they would do it in a flash.

consider the following:
1)people in Japan have (on average) smaller hands then people in the USA
2) Mirosoft mae the USA controler fit comfortably into most peoples had in the USA
3)Microsoft could not make 1 cotrler fit the hands of kids in japan and adults in USA
4)Micrsoft mkes 2 difforent controlers for the difforent needs of he 2 countries
5)Nintendo only inreeced the size, but didn't change the buttons to be more comfortable for the 2 contries
The Jap controler probobly will be less comfortabeto us then the USA one and the USA one will be less comfortabe to people in Japan/ people with small hands the the Jap cntroler. :D
