    Well, the Japanese Xbox needs to be released first.

    Does Microsoft have any plans to release that controller here in the States? I would think that plenty of people would want the smaller version, as it does look to be a bit more comfortable than the one we have here in America.

    I had a chance to play both systems for a few minutes today in a Toys-R-Us while shopping, and I really dug the X-box controller. I have pretty smallish hands as well. I thought the Cube controller felt a lot more flimsy after playing the box. is that something that passes? It's hard to form an opinion after only 10 minutes of each, so I wondered if people grow more comfortable with the controller over time, or if you like or dislike the fit instantly and it stays that way.

    I got used to the size and button placement of the controller after 30 minutes or so. After you're used to it, though, everything else seems poorly made in comparison, it's a weird thing. When I first held it, my immediate reaction was "oh my god this is awkwardly huge" just like everyone else, but I definately got used to it. I dare say I've grown to like it.

    Wow, I like the placement of the black and white buttons! Dammit, that's the only complaint I have with the current xbox controllers...they're too far for my fingers! Oh well. It's better than the DC and N64 controllers for my hands anyways. [​IMG]

    I'll definitely be picking one of these up. I dont have many major complaints about the current controller but the placement of the black and white buttons and the fully round buttons make this one worthwhile!!

    When I finally get around to getting my box, this will be a must buy! If only for the button placement alone...

    I dunno-I think that the black & white and start & back buttons are even more awckward in the japanese controller. Personally, I love the huge controllers. Add to this the amazing idea of the LONG cord (I have no idea why nobody else has done this yet) and we have a winner.

    Gawd I love this controller too. The breakaway feature is wonderful, and it's nice and big for big hands.
