It's funny because the Xbox was the heaviest console ever and the least likely to be pulled off the shelf from a controller cord.
It was more that the X-Box controller cord was extra long (longer than the PS2 controller, presumably long enough to reach the average distance between a TV and a couch/chair) as to potentially be a tripping hazard for people crossing the room. I've got to say, this feature actually came in handy a few times for me.
