Around the launch of the current console generation, there was lots of talk about how Xbox Series X|S and PS5 stacked up against each other - as you'd probably expect. This time around though, one of the main points of differentiation was the controller, especially because Sony was deploying a pretty radical set of changes with its DualSense.
In fact, just after launch Phil Spencer himself "applauded" what Sony had done with its new pad, praising the company's drive to innovate for this console generation. Despite Phil then hinting that Xbox could follow suit and make changes to its own controller, we've still not seen any real revision to the Xbox Series X|S pad so far.
So... what do we think? Would you still like to see some sort of haptic-laden revision? Of course, those haptic rumbles and jolts were the big PS4 to PS5 upgrade in the controller department, and such features are something we've yet to see on Xbox - either in the base pad or even in an Elite Controller revision.
