Predecessor Xbox 360 Controller

The Xbox One Controller is the primary controller for Microsoft Xbox One console. It maintains the overall layout found in the Xbox 360 Controller. The directional pad has been changed to a four-way design, and the battery compartment is slimmer. Xbox 360 Controllers are not compatible for Xbox One. Xbox One controllers are compatible for Windows 8.1 operating system. Menu and View buttons have replaced the Start and Back buttons. Each trigger features independent rumble motors called "Impulse Triggers", which allows developers to program directional vibration. One trigger can be made to vibrate when firing a gun, or both can work together to create feedback that indicates the direction of an incoming hit. Pre-ordered Xbox One Day One Edition controllers have the words "Day One 2013" engraved in the center. Microsoft invested over $100 million into refining the controller design for the Xbox One. Plus the logo on the controllers all have a glowing white circle with a black X in the middle
