Personally I am loving it. Now I can just watch the whole 90 minutes without having to jump into the forum every two minutes only to find threads that have moved ten pages. It's so much more relaxed that way, I can really enjoy the gameplay now.
I just measured the width of my Xbone and it's a little more than two Elite controllers long. If the new controller is the same width as the Elite controller, this console is only about half an inch shorter. Doesn't seem like a big improvement but if it's 40% smaller then I guess they shrunk other parts more noticeably.
But what about Scorpio? This looks damn nice but I don't want to buy two Xbox in two years. Tell me Scorpio is years off and I'm getting the slim ASAP. Tell me Scorpio is 2017 and I will wait for that.
