Xbox Controller SMicrosofts David Hufford gave Gamespy the scoop on the brand new Xbox Controller S. The new compact controller is similiar to the Japanese controller, but not exactly the same. The new stick will be the answer for young gamers across the globe who have been having problems with the original Xbox controller being a bit too big. Heres a bit from the interview and a link to check out the rest.
GameSpy: Is it 100% identical to the Japanese controller?
David Hufford: No, there are differences. For one, the cable length is a bit longer than the Japanese controller; were going to the 9.8 foot standard cable that we came out with for the original Xbox Controller. I mentioned the buttons -- the springs in the triggers, those are a bit different. Its more like the Xbox Controller here in the States, with a little subtle difference -- youll definitely feel a little more play there. We replaced the green jewel with a black jewel, so youll have a black jewel on this one.
