According to The Verge, the next-generation Xbox controller has a new design. They described the new controller design as "flattened." No images of Xbox 720 controllers have leaked!

I love the existing XBox 360 Controller, let's see what they come up with. I wonder if the existing 360 controller will be compatible with the new system as well.

UPDATE:
thread updated with attachment of the official "Xbox One" Controller. See below.

I just hope they don't make it like the Playstation controllers. Too small for my hands :/ (And don't take that sentence wrong)

i find it hard enough to get the right buttons now, they better not make it feather touch, that would be too difficult.

i bet they have about 20 designs ready and they decided to ship the one they think will best compete with ps4's ideas.

m$ always 2nd to arrive, first to claim copyright or patent

Yeah they got the 360's controller spot on the money and this new controller looks very promising too.

Yes I love the 360 controller, there's nothing better in my mind. Now while I like the looks of the new xbox one controller I can't say one way or another whether I'll like it or not. I need to test this sucker out!

um.. I don't get what they mean by flattened out. Anybody??

The 360 controller is rounded more on the edges and on the back. The Xbox One controller is mostly flat on the back and not as round on the edges.

I think it just looks like a flatter, bulkier version of the already perfect Xbox 360 controller. If Microsoft would have just added this new D-pad to the Xbox 360 controller and called it a day, they would have had a winner.

Also, why put the home button on the top of the controller? It won't be easy to reach like it was on the Xbox 360.
