Anyone else hate the controller?

The brief time I had a 360, the controller felt so comfortable in my hands. The xb1 controller is literally a pain sometimes. Pressing the L1 shoulder button (bumper or trigger, Idr what they call it) kinda hurts a bit, if that makes sense. I never had that problem with a controller other than the xb1 controller

Let's see how long it takes for this topic to devolve into a huge flame war.

Maybe if I had the same problem using other controllers, which I don't. Xb1 is far from the only controller with left shoulder buttons.

Nope, I really like the controller. I didn't think anything would be more comfortable than the 360 controller, but the X1 controller is.

I love it. Feels nice and light, great button lay out (I love the new bumbers being middle of the finger pushing), and the d-pad is finally fixed. So A+ for MS on the controller for me.

I don't have the one yet but held the controller and didn't like the loose sticks. The ps4 and 360 are perfect and I have a converter that will let me use those.

I have 2 XB1 controllers and neither of them have loose sticks, was it a demo unit you tried?

Biggest gripe I had was with the bumpers, had a lot of mis-presses when I first started using it cuz you have to press them on the outside portion of the button but now that I'm adjusted to it I like the controller more than the 360s. Battery life also seems better.

I quite like the controller. It fits my hands very well. All of the frequently used buttons are placed logically and comfortably. The sticks offer a level of precision above that of it's predecessor, and the rumble features provide very cool feedback when utilized well.

I'm not calling the 360 controller a slouch, it was great, but the XBO pad is a significant improvement.

The NES controller is the most uncomfortable controller I have ever used (a rectangle with square edged buttons!) but never once hurt my hands.

I agree with Directory, must be a medical condition.

PS4 and Xbox One controllers are the best yet. So comfy.
