Microsoft released a blog post today that details the new Xbox controller that will be released alongside the upcoming Xbox One. While the controller retains a mostly-unchanged button layout, the controller has picked up a couple of new features and tricks, proving an old dog can learn new tricks.

According to Microsoft, the new controller "introduces more than 40 technology innovations that make it more immersive, precise, and comfortable." Microsoft says that over 200 prototypes were used across 20 research studies to validate every change that went into the controller. So, just what has changed?

 

One of the biggest additions is the "impulse triggers." These are two new vibration motors positioned behind each trigger. They can be used to provide additional immersion and feedback. The thumbsticks have also been improved for comfort, accuracy, and performance. Finally, the entire controller has been improved to provide additional comfort.
