Just wondering how much different the new controllers will be to the old xbox?
will i have to spend a couple of minutes reconfiguing my hand to eye coordination? or will it be relatively the same?

From what I have heard the controller is just like an "s", but more comfortable...the only change is that the black and white buttons have become triggers up top.

if you play ps2 with index and fiddle fingers at the top then it will be easy but you might need to get used to the new controller if the b and W buttons are used more, also they are supposted to be lighter and have more of a duke feel

The 360 button brings up your dash in game where you can alter music playing or check your xbox live friends list etc.

yeah the new controllers offer:
-General Duke Shape with Controller-S size and XYAB button layout
-Lighter than an S (Even with the battery pack)
-Integrated communicator (just plug in a head set and go)
-"Xbox Guide" button that will take you to the Xbox Live Dash at anytime (it can also function as a power button for the console)
-LED indicators to tell you which player number you are.
-LED indicators to tell you when your batteries are low or if you have a new message in your in box.
-Adjustable Rumble "volume" Off-Low-Medium-Full
-Start and Back buttons have been relocated to the center of the controller
-Black and White buttons have been removed
-Shoulder buttons have been added directly above the trigger buttons.
-Capable of functioning as an interface device on a windows (longhorn?) PC
-No more break away cable
-Wired controller use USB2.0 with standard USB shaped plugs (NOT Xbox shaped plugs)
-Wired Controllers feature a 3m cable. Wireless controller feature a 10m range (NOT line of sight)
-Up to 4 wireless controllers can be use on a single console at a time
-It is unknown how many wired controllers may be used at a time (there are 3 USB ports and the console has the ability to utilize USB hubs as well)

i just hope the Analogue thumb sticks are stiff like the original Xbox pad, cos the S pad felt bit lose for my comfort (specially to play FPS games), and specially the PS2 was way too soft, worst was the GC stick dry.gif
