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?


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.
