Incredible evolution of the Xbox and PS controllers

1 min read

There’s no doubting that the controllers from both the PlayStation family and Xbox family have changed over the years, more so the Xbox family however did you ever notice that the spacing and size of the PlayStation buttons hasn’t changed in twenty years?

Check out these incredible gif’s courtesy of Gadgetlove to see how each controller has changed.

First up we have the PlayStation family.


Just look how those buttons keep the same distance between each other over the course of generations.. so weird.

And then we have the Xbox family, man I miss that first controller. I think I was one of the only people on the planet who liked it though.


Also do you remember those extra two buttons the Xbox used to have that just disappeared when the Xbox 360 was released… I used to use those all the time in Dead or Alive.
