With the Xbox One on the horizon and slated for a holiday 2013 release, you might be wondering if its controller is any different from the Xbox 360 controller you currently have. The image below, courtesy of Gamechup, should give you an idea for what's to come. Just a tip in case you can't tell which is which: the Xbox 360 controller is on top, while the Xbox One controller is on the bottom.
While the Xbox One and Xbox 360 controllers look pretty similar at first glance, a keen observer will notice the differences between them. First off, the Xbox 360's A, B, X and Y buttons are colored in, while the same buttons on the Xbox One will sport colored letter marking surrounded by black, making them easier on the eyes.
The shade of material used to build the Xbox One controller seems to sport a lighter shade of black than the Xbox 360 controller. Also, to us it appears as if the Xbox One controller could be somewhat slimmer than the Xbox 360's.
Notice the body to the left of the D-pad on both controllers. It appears to be more streamlined and less curved on the Xbox One controller than the Xbox 360 controller, though we can't be certain just by looking at this photo. What do you think?
