If the design scheme and the appearance are uncanny to their competitor then yes, I will say they stole the idea.

The XBox Controller was uncannily similar to the Gamecube controller, which was uncannily similar to the PS2 controller. Four buttons on the right, D-Pad, two sticks, etc. There were a few design differences, but still, same basic setup. The idea wasn't stolen any more than controller designs have been stolen; rather, Sony cashed in on a design they knew worked, just like other consoles did when the Playstation controller did well.
