The Xbox 360 controller has the same basic familiar button layout as the Controller, but a few helpful buttons have been removed. The “Back” and “Start” buttons have been moved to a more central position on the controller’s face, and the “White” and “Black” buttons have been moved and replaced with two new bumpers on the back of the controller located on the analog triggers. The front of the controller has a 2.5mm TRS connector, which allows users to attach a headset for voice communication. It features a proprietary serial connector (divided into 2 parts on either side of the headset connector) for the use of additional accessories such as chat pads.

On August 1, 2010, Microsoft’s Larry Hribb (aka Major Nelson) released a new design for the Xbox control0 controller set to replace the wireless controller integrated with the Play and Charge Kit. Among the small changes, such as the size of analog stick tops and gray face buttons, the new controller has a consistent directional pad that can be switched to a disc-type D-pad or a plus-shaped D-pad. The control pad was released exclusively in North America via Play & Charge Kits in November 2010, and in Europe in February 2011.


The Xbox 360 controller provides a standard USB human interface device software interface, but is designed for the Microsoft XInput interface library. Although many PC video games support the XInput library, some games may not work with this controller.

Last A standard Xbox 360 controller features eleven digital buttons, two analog triggers, two analog sticks, and a digital D-pad. The right face of the controller features four digital action buttons: a green A button, red B button, blue X button, and yellow Y button. The lower right houses the right analog stick, in lower left is a digital D-pad and on the left face is the left analog stick. Both analog sticks can also be clicked in to activate a digital button beneath.

In the center of the controller face are digital “Start”, “Back” and “Guide” buttons. The “Guide” button is labelled with the Xbox logo, and is used to turn on the console/controller and to access the guide menu. It is also surrounded by the “ring of light”, which indicates the controller number, as well as flashing when connecting and to provide notifications. The left and right “shoulders” each feature a digital shoulder button, or “bumper”, and an analog trigger.

Wireless controllers also feature an additional “connect” button located between the “bumpers” to facilitate syncing with the console.

White controllers were bundled with the Arcade and Pro consoles; also sold separately.

Black S and White S controllers are bundled with Xbox 360 S consoles. These differ from their original counterparts in that they are completely one color, rather than with grey accents. The guide button has a mirror like finish, and the analog sticks and D-pad are color matched. The bottom edge of this controller also features a gloss finish to match the Xbox 360 S 250 GB case design. “S” controllers also replace the Microsoft branding above the charging port with an Xbox 360 logo.
