Xbox One Controller Was Almost The Same As Xbox 360?s

For Microsoft, it was a tough act to follow, so much that it almost carried over its crowd-pleasing design to next-gen. According to Xbox One designer Carl Ledbetter, Microsoft never asked directly for the Xbox 360 controller's design to be altered. "People were a little apprehensive", he said. "If it isn't broken, don't fix it." Despite this, the Xbox One Controller is, in some ways, a radicaldeparture from the Xbox 360's. Its fit and finish are arguably the best the world has seen for a console controller, but its bumper buttons haven't satisfied everyone. If Microsoft decided to just use the Xbox 360 controller design with a few minute alterations, it wouldn't have been such a bad idea. Before the DualShock 4, the Sony family of controllers did little to evolve from one generation to the next. It wouldn't be something never before seen, anyway.
