Microsoft Xbox 360 Wired Controller


Microsoft Xbox 360 Wired Controller Review. Microsoft’s first venture into the console
business with the Xbox was a learning experience for the company, and there’s no greater evidence
than the evolution of the system’s controller. The original Xbox controller was an oversize
mess, with oddly shaped and placed buttons. Roughly halfway through the console’s run,
the original controller was replaced with the Controller S, the smaller alternative
created for the Japanese launch. Heralded as one of the best controllers ever
created, Xbox fans wondered how Microsoft could improve upon its design as it set out
to create the official controller for the Xbox 360. Here’s the answer. The Xbox 360 Controller borrows many design
elements from the Controller S. The left and right analog sticks and triggers,
the control pad, and the face buttons are in the same spots, constructed rather similarly. The start and Back buttons have been moved
to the center, flanking the new guide button, which allows access to your gamer card at
any time. Removed from the older controller are the
black and white buttons, which were awkwardly placed below the face buttons. Taking their place are the left and right
bumpers, which make their home on the top of the controller in front of the triggers. The slight changes have resulted in a nearly
perfect design; not only is the controller great for 360 games, but you may just prefer
the new layout for the backward-compatible Xbox1 titles, as the bumpers are better located
than the black and white buttons. The performance of the Xbox 360 Controller
on the console is phenomenal, with instantaneous response time. The controller syncs with the system much
faster than the wireless controller, and the force feedback is a bit stronger. On the PC, the controller performs more than
admirably. Once you download the software from Microsoft’s official site, the controller
will work with any controller-compatible game. As long as the game you’re playing allows
you to customize button usage, the controller ranks among the best available for the PC. Games specifically designed to work with the
controller can also make use of the headset input and the force feedback. The Xbox 360 Controller is one of the best-designed
and best performing controllers on the market. If you’re looking for faults, you might argue
the controller lacks any startling new features especially in comparison to the motion-based
controllers for the upcoming Nintendo Wii and Sony PlayStation 3 which may hinder true
game design innovations. Kindly see the description for this Amazon
