    If you take a quick look at the Xbox One controller, you won't notice many differences between the Xbox 360 controller and itself.
    The faces of the X,A,B,Y buttons are slightly changed, the Directional Pad is slightly changed, and the handle contour of it is a little different.

    Microsoft has added a rumble system into the triggers called "Impulse Triggers".
    Also, they replaced the 'Start', and 'Back' buttons, with 'Menu' and 'View'.
    The Menu button will bring up context-specific menus which game and app developers can design to enhance the user experience. The Menu button could be used in scenarios such as bringing up in-game menus, showing video playback options, and accessing commands on the console’s user interface."
    As for the View button, it "will change views or provide more information in games and apps. The function of the View button will be driven by developers. Possible uses of the View button include viewing a map during a role playing game, displaying a leaderboard in a first person shooter, and enhancing the navigation of the console's user interface."
    The controller will be charged by a mini usb cord, however the charging time and battery life is unknown as of now.
    Microsoft made it clear, that xbox 360 headsets will NOT work with the Xbox one controller.
