    I didn't even know this was coming out. Man... I have been so out of the loop when it comes to gaming.

    Seeing how they clearly named it after me I guess I'll have to get one.

    OG xbox controler has always been my favorite, but it's been so long I doubt I will be as good with it as I use to be. Plus it was pretty tough on the pinkies if I remember correctly.

    Noooo waaaay. I still have an OG Xbox, and while it may be nostalgic, i will not use a Frisbee for a controller, lol. I first player xbox when i was 6, and my little tiny hands could barely reach the right joystick. It was so hard for me to kill those angry blue alien dudes, and the crazy walking bugs. (The elites and grunts, respectively)

    mblackwell1002 how could you not want to play Xbox with a frisbee. You can also play Frisbee golf and ultimate Frisbee. I always liked the duke controller design so I bought the original Duke to use with pc (and then lost the adapter). Personally I think they should make a 360 version also.

    Got to keep that classic look.
    but they really should make wireless
    also this controller has a headphone jack, so I should have a mic now

    Has a lot to do with how you store them. I was the same way. Instead of wrapping them around the headset when you're done, try wrapping them around your hand and then binder clip the cords together. This puts less strain on the connection between headset and cord.

    I love the original controller, unfortunately my cord is slightly damaged due to my animals walking through while i am playing and walking into the wire, ripping it from the socket on one side.
