[b]Excuse[/b] me if my hands are bigger then the average fifteen year old Japanese girl. Geez.[/quote] Once again the pure logic of GreenChief shines through. I also do not have small japanese hands, and when I purchased my Xbox loved that fact that for the fist time in my life a company made a controller that fit my hands right outta the box. The Xbox was targeted to a more mature audience at first, but due to the huge popularity with the youngins, they were forced to make a smaller controller the "s" to compete with the aftermarket ones. I think the "s" is great for kids, but men use the Duke.

  • Im right handed, so i like the black and white buttons at the top right, and also i have HUGE hands.=) The madcatz controllers are pretty good, they got rubber on em' so sweaty hands dont ruin gameplay. and im sad becuase my duke has an fed up right trigger, an fed up A button, and the Left trigger sticks! (all b/c of WAY too enthuiastic halo playing) [Edited on 6/22/2004 10:06:03 PM]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] CANNON 117 I, on the other hand have big enough hands to harness the greatness of the Duke. Hey, you know what they say about guys with big hands...[/quote] Yeah, bigger hands = a smaller... um... 'member'. Anyway, I like both. I prefer the S-controller, but the Duke is pretty cool. I just really like the placement of the start, back, and black and white buttons on the S, though. If the Duke had those buttons in the the same place as the S it would rule all...

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] CANNON 117 I was just making a joke about the size. I have big hands, but I don't like where the black and white buttons where placed on the Duke. I never got to use the Duke until after I had been playing with the S for six months. It's kinda hard to get used to the Duke after you play that long with an S. Besides, all I have now are S's and they let me school my opponent just fine in a game of Halo. [/quote] I know, I know. I'm not being an ignorant retard. It's just fun to B.S. with each other. btw, if B.S. is culturally different and you can't understand it, it means Bull $hit, which is an expression for something that isn't true, or something outragiously stupid. See, that was another example of BSing with each other. It's kinda hard to get the right feel to it over the internet, though.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Frag Master I know I live in Northern Wisconsin; don't remind me. [/quote] The best part about the Xbox is that it's actually inspired it's own culture within cultures. Just looking at the people that I play with from Northern Washington State and how everyone locally plays in my area, it's funny how differently everything is called, pronounced, etc. etc. Hell, we have names for all the areas of the maps, nicknames for playstyles and weapons, etc. etc., and they are different from almost everyone else's. Fatty Controllers, Russel Rock, what "The Big L" really means, the mythology and terminology all has different origins, which is really cool.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] CANNON 117 Xbox S is better. I gotta pull the left trigger with my left foot and I gotta headbutt the analog stick to crouch when I use the biggun.[/quote] Hey, you like the S because your puny hands cannot sustain the excellence of the Duke. I, on the other hand have big enough hands to harness the greatness of the Duke. Hey, you know what they say about guys with big hands...

Hey, it's better here than you think. I am subscribed to OXM (Official Xbox Magazine) and they commonly refer to it as the "Duke". I have heard this many times, and simply say it because they know what they are talking about.

  • the big controller is known as the Duke. The Duke is no longer the official controller for the xbox. it used to be, but then got replaced by the S controller as the official controller. however, those who grew to love it can still buy it, but it is not the official controller. big woop! so what if it's not official; it still rules the S anyday I'm just sayin that cuz I was one of the first people to get an Xbox and I spent hundreds of hours on my Duke.

  • I started with the big controller on my friends Xbox but when I got mine it came with an S controller so that's what I use now.
