2 analogue 'stick', D-pad, 9 buttons
Got this because it was the oddest of Microsoft's analogue experimental controllers. Twists for 2 analogue axes, got a slidy dpad which is interesting, and nine buttons. Triggers ain't as nice as my other SideWinders but I think this one was more heavily used before I got it. Not as comfortable to hold as I'd like, the casing underneath is a bit bulgy but it ain't bad. Fun to mess about with. 🙂

@Retrodrive For actual use that could be the better one, though the cheaper four button one they released later's pretty good as well, or at least mine has a better condition d-pad than my six button

Who thought that was a good idea?
