Is the Xbox 360 controller the best ever designed? It’s arguable, I still love my old N64 controller, but I do enjoy how the 360’s feels. Apparently the US Army also thinks that it’s a great design.

A few pictures have cropped up depicting soldiers with Xbox 360 controllers that appear to be used for controlling Small Unmanned Ground Vehicles, or SUGV’s.

It’s really a smart move to use a controller from a popular game console. Many of the Army’s new recruits are going to at least be familiar with the layout. Others have been fragging people with them since the 360 came out.
