The lights are on
Microsoft is proud of its Xbox One controller, and rightly so. We're fans of the new input device, and Microsoft put together a video and an infographic to showcase all the work that went into its creation.
You can check out the video below, where Microsoft's controller designer break down all the functions, changes, and minor touches that make the new controller lovely to hold. You can also see the infographic that details the new additions in text form.
Our TakeA few of our editors have already spent quite a bit of time with the new controller, and they always come away with good impressions. I was only able to hold the controller for a few moments at E3 for a technical demo of the device's capabilities, and even in that short amount of time, I liked what I felt. New controllers are always tricky for a new console, but early impressions make it seem like Microsoft and Sony both did a good job.

I'm looking forward to finally upgrading my first gen 360 controller for my PC to one of these :)
As someone who is going to buy a ps4 i say to you sony and microsoft fanboys, Don't Even Try To Complain Or Whine
The XBox controller is my favorite controller. It just feels right...but it is not enough to keep my in camp Microsoft for the next generation. They made too many mistakes and showed their true intentions too many times this summer for me to trust them with my next console.
Rumble in the triggers is a good idea.
My main console will likely be the one with the better controller. Judging by the looks and the info it looks like the one will be what I'll mainly be playing.
