Today Microsoft's "Major Nelson" and Xbox accessories manager Zulfi Alam took us on a tour of the Xbox One's new controller, including some of its biggest improvements
The Xbox One controller's D-Pad takes on a clean X-shape, and doesn't protrude as high as the 360 controller's did

When a new game console launches, there's naturally a lot of focus on the features of the system itself, like graphics, raw horsepower, and motion control. But you can't forget about the part that's going to sit in your hand for hours on end: the controller. Microsoft doesn't want us to forget that either, as we can see in this 7-minute video detailing the "40+ improvements" to the Xbox One's controller.
