Funny how Microsoft had to place the D-pad and the left joystick the way they did. They seem to have been afraid of making it too similar to the Sony product. rolleyes.gif

They didn't "have" to do it, they chose to do it because it's a more comfortable setup to use. When the original PlayStation came out, games were still using a basic D-pad and four button layout, and people hadn't become accustomed to using an analog stick to move. The Xbox came later when people had begun to stop using their D-pad in favor of the left analog stick, so the Xbox controller had its analog stick and D-pad reversed because it felt more natural for the main button (or in this case, stick) to be on that part of the controller. It's not to to differentiate themselves from Sony.

Edit: I have an additional discussion I'd like to start here, but I'll get into that tomorrow.

Whenever I think of "human resources" Massacre immediately springs to mind.
