I understand the desire for a new controller, and something like the thumb rest that was missing before is a nice addition. However very many users like the quest 1 controllers more.
1. users with smaller hands. My partner for example has trouble reaching the upper buttons (B/Y) without having to readjust her hand on the controller.
2. for some games, the quest 1 controller is a lot more comfortable. Names: for Eleven Table Tennis.
3. continuing for Eleven Table tennis: there is a very active controller adapter community that has created various 3d printable and otherwise paddle adapters for the controllers. Unfortunately, the quest 2 controller is considerably heavier for this purpose. So much so that people are looking into cutting weight by using ultra light AAA batteries in ultra light AA battery casings, removing the strap, removing the battery lid..etc.
4. Some people like the haptics of the quest 1 controllers.
As far as I understand, this should be nothing more than a software update.
So, please provide a way for quest 2 users to use quest 1 controllers.
