A small one you've missed, though it probably counts, is the Start and Back buttons being changed for essentially "Menu" and "Task-switch" ones.

Aside from all the obvious things to love about it, the 360 controller had a very pleasing weight to it. Made the thing you were holding feel sturdy, reliable and in-place.
I just hope they haven't gone and made the new controller too light, as most companies seem to be doing that to all their fancy new electronics.

I recall hearing that the ABXY buttons are slightly shorter, too. They also changed the look of the letters inside the buttons.
At any rate, very nice list you've compiled there. That's the first time I've seen so many listed in one place. Microsoft, make checks payable to evilcanofsoda.

I wouldn't dare chuck the 360 controllers like I did with the PS2 ones, because I've had a couple of 360 controllers break after being dropped a couple of inches onto carpet. They are terrible, really terrible. I've heard other people say they're sturdy, but all the ones I've had have been rubbish, and that was one of the things I was hoping they'd change. I keep reading your comment over again and can't believe we've been using the same controllers. If you apply too much pressure to certain parts or drop them on a sofa they'll turn off and they break far too easily. This, along with the 360 chewing up the disc if you move it even a couple of millimeters, was something I was hoping they'd get right this time.
