Microsoft spent more than $100 million on the Xbox One controller

Some argue that the Xbox 360 controller was the greatest one ever made. Perhaps concerned that it was resting on its laurels, Microsoft poured $100 million into developing a new controller for the Xbox One, according to a VentureBeat four-part exclusive. The company researched tons of wacky features: a built-in projector, speakers and even the ability to emit smells. But the end result actually has just a few tiny tweaks from what made the 360 so successful — though those tweaks apparently cost millions in their own right. I guess it’s a small price to pay in the quest for perfection.
