Thread: Will you purchase the XBOX CONTROLLER S?

    Default Will you purchase the XBOX CONTROLLER S?

    I like to avoid posting up stupid polls like "What is your favorite genre?". I did find the introduction of the new smaller XBOX controller to be surprising and interesting. I thought that the XBOX stood out because of its nice graphicsa nd BIG controller.

    I know I'm not going to buy the darn thing, but I know that some people will because they have stupid complaints. I want to get a sense of how well the new controller will do.

    I've already got the japanese controller.... it really is nice. I use my big controller all the time, but my friends who are short and underdeveloped really really appreciate the smaller controller.

    just food for thought
    Of course that's just my opinion... I could be wrong.

    No, I'm sick of small controllers. I can't even play on a PSX or PS2 now. Don't get me started on GC. So I'll stick with the big one.

    Of course I'll still test it out if they have it at a store. I just hate that the buttons are in different positions.

    I'm not gonna get it, I actually bought the Japanese controller and i'm in the process of trading it for the American version. I'm so use to the State's version that my thumbs actually hurt when I use the japanese version. I say if your use to the american one you don't need to change it.

    You know, I was debating on whether to get one or not. I already have three of the normal XBox controllers...and I was thinking about getting a fourth. I was thinking about getting the type S just to try it out and see if I liked it...but, what you and Lynxfx said, both of you make great points.

    Personally, I absolutely LOVE the normal XBox controllers...I guess, why get rid of a good thing? I probably will be disappointed and end up selling it or something. I have a buddy that I work part-time with at an electronics store and he has the type S controller and prefers it. I could just try his or just buy one, and if I don't like it, I can trade mine for his. There wouldn't be any risk since the guy treats his gaming equipment exceptionally well.

    Yes, I will buy one. I like the original controller, but my friend likes the smaller controllers I think it would make I good fourth controller.

    Default hmmm

    You do have a point. A lot of my friends who come over do like the smaller type of controllers. Hmmm..

    I never thought of it that way. I feel so selfish. Anyways... I also have three controllers. You know what? I don't care what my friends think. They all like the XBOX for its games and graphics anyways. The controller is easy to use and quite adaptable. My stance stays the same on this issue.

    but anyways, nope...i don't think im going to get it...with that price, i'd rather get the regular xbox controller

    i don't have 1 complaint about the current xbox controler, i love it, but, i also love the s, i plan on getting a whole set of em

    also, it seems to me this is not just a smaller controler, but an updated, one, better life and reation maybe, or better sensitivity with the pressure sensitive buttons...

    I guess you guys don't play Gotham for hours and hours. After about 3 hours your right trigger hand starts to really hurt. I have JPN one and I don't get that problem. I guess I have to buy the S version for my buddy who comes over so there won't be an excuse of me beating him because of the controller.

    Tech...try using your Middle finger instead of your index finger for the right trigger while playing Gotham. You'll find that you will never have your hand get tired

    LOL!!! Its just a joke. I don't like communism and I am the most right wing person you'll ever see. I am probably beyond the right side of the political continuum.

    I truly don't think you're communism if you like the smaller controller... and if you do, it doesn't mean you are. Its just comical. Have a laugh.

    I don't get it though. More than 180 people have seen this thread although less than 30 have done the poll. THis must be the works of communists!! Ahhhhhhhhh
