Element3 - New Product Development Company

A typical gaming session lasts hours, so it was extremely critical to design an ergonomically correct and comfortable controller for a wide range of users. Drawing on our experience designing Sidewinder gamepads and joysticks, we understood that the best controllers provide a good foundation to accommodate different types of playing postures. At the same time, gaming can be a very intense activity, and the equipment has to be able to withstand the success of rigorous gaming sessions.

Negotiating these seemingly opposite requirements, we designed the highly robust Xbox Controller S with generous grips in a shape that allows each player to find their own perfect posture. The global Xbox gaming community loved the appearance and the experience of the Xbox Controller S.

Microsoft has shipped more than thirty-five million units of the Xbox Controller S.
