The Evolution Of The PlayStation And Xbox Controllers


Over at, curiosity and creativity met their minds and resulted in the following images: The evolution of the PlayStation and Xbox controllers. Both images animate from generation one to current generation controllers. When the controllers are put into this scope, it’s easier to see the drastic changes of both controllers. Seeing a small difference (i.e. the addition of analog sticks to the original controller to the current PS4) throughout the years just doesn’t give the same feel as seeing all the differences in mere seconds.


What these images truly do is allow our mind to fully grasp and accept the changes for what they were – changes to make the gaming experience more accessible and comfortable. Both controllers have come a long way – and this long way is drastically shortened with these two images.
