Rubber Grips? FUCK YES!!!! by jimmycanuck

A few days ago, a handful of XBox Live subscribers were e-mailed a survey to gauge interest in a number of possible products and services.  The best of the bunch?

RUBBER. FUCKING. GRIPS.

I’ve always been furious with first party designers for avoiding the single greatest advancement in the history of controllers – rubber.  You may think I’m being sarcastic – but seriously – the best controller I’ve ever owned was a MadCatz Lumicon.  The reason I loved it?  Rubber grips.  They’re so comfortable that you never want to let go.

Other possible projects coming down the pipline?

  • – streaming internet audio
  • – music download service (most likely the Zune Marketplace)
  • – web browser
  • – mini-keyboard device that plugs into the controller
  • – Live Arcade joystick

Plus, in addition to the rubber grips, the controller above wil feature backlit buttons and improved D-Pad performance (thank god).  Now it sounds EXACTLY like the Lumicon, and if you ask me, that’s a good thing.
