    I don't know if you can buy an XBox with the S-Controller included, but the controllers themselves are readily available.

    All X-Boxes come with the "regular" (i.e., obscenely large) controller. So if you want the S controller you have to plunk down even more money. Thanks, guys.......

    You could go out, buy an X-Box, buy an S-controller, and then sell your original controller if you really want to.

    If anyone out there truly hates their original controller then let me know, I just might buy it off ya. A couple of spares would come in handy for parties and stuff.

    This might make a good poll - I prefer the old controller. I've got 2 of each though (the 's' ones I have are the Japanese controller - got one in grey too!)

    Haven't tried the S-Controller, but the regular one seems about perfect to me.

    I think the "standard" XBOX controller has become my favorite controller of all time. It just fits my hands right and I love the sturdy construction.
    Of course, I have BIG hands and fat fingers [​IMG]
    I tried out the "S" controller at my friend's house and HATED it. It felt generally cheap and I did not like the placement of the Black/White and Start/Select buttons.

    The main thing I don't like about the X-Box's controller is the buttons. They're too close together and their shape is just weird. Also, the black/white/back/start buttons and the right joystick are a little far for me to reach. I'd rather have the controller overall smaller but with the buttons a little bigger.

    I agree with Morgan on that one. The S-controller is my all-time favorite. The only problem I have is the look of it. I don't find it particularly nice-looking, although it is a lot nicer than the giant-plastic-circle-with-a-cardboard-logo-under-it look of the regular Xbox controller.

    The damn regular controller is just so BIG!
