• How a Twitter Joke Brought the Xbox 'Duke' Controller Back to Life

    5 monthes ago - By IGN

    Years after a horrifying gauntlet of negative fan reactions to the extraordinary size of the original “Duke” Xbox controller, Seamus Blackley, the man who wrote the original proposal for the Xbox, was rummaging through old boxes.
