The black and white buttons were dumb for most games I agree…but awesome for fighting games and arcade ports. I guess there weren’t very many of those on the system, but playing Metal Slug 3 on a Duke reminded me of the SNES/Genesis days.

And I agree, I hope the sticks are a little bit better tuned. The default Xbox One controller is probably my favorite gamepad ever.

Also, the new Duke has that stupid display screen on it to show you the Xbox logo instead of it just being printed there, which is hilarious.
