These are just like your normal Xbox controller with 2 adjustments. 1 - the top half of the controller is chrome (very easily dirtied and can sometimes reflect light into your face at the worst times). 2 - They have improved the thumb sticks and have used a more solid material where you thumbs come into contact with the sticks. I have been enjoying the use of this controller very much for the 2nd adjustment. Very well made, and very well priced.
