    So im teaching my stepson how to play some games on the 360, he usually plays with the wii or his ds. but he loved watching me play wolverine so i've been letting him play.

    Only problem is his hands are way too small for the 360 controller, he can't hit button combos etc.. easily. does any company out there make smaller controllers for little kids?

    The Duke was the most comfortable controller I've ever had the pleasure of using. I was seriously upset when they announced the 360 was not backwards compatible with Xbox controllers because I knew that was the end of the Duke. There will never be a controller as awesome as that. Only problem was the button placement for the black and white buttons.

    That said, there should be some 3rd party 360 controllers that are smaller. You'll probably have to shop around to find them though.

    You can fit the insides of the 360 controller into the PS3 controller. Just wouldn't have rumble capability.

    Yeah does mad katz still make the MicroCon series controllers? Those were great. 30% smaller but still comfy. I have huge hands but perferred the microcons to the gamecube controllers (actually, I think it had to do with the ANGLE of the outward grips; they were angular on the microcon like a ps controller is, where the nintendo version was straight up and down like and n64 controller)

    :werd: People love to trash on the duke, but there are many of us whose hands fit very well with the controller. Unfortunately due to the fact that it doesn't work well for everyone means that we probably won't see another 1st party controller like it again. Here's to memories. :h5:

    the 360 controller is the most perfectly balanced and comfortable controller ever made

    anybody who says they miss the big xbox controller are just trying to be different...NOBODY liked that thing

    I did and I'm not trying to be different. Thing fit like a glove. Every other controller I've used gets uncomfortable after a while because my hands are forced into this awkward "I'm a retard with rigor mortis" claw. The Duke was like cupping a 17 year old anorexic chick's ass. Perfection.

    wow you must be a virgin if you think cupping any anorexic chick's ass is perfection.
