GAMES CONSOLE MAKER Microsoft is continuing its run up to the E3 games show with more details about its Xbox One console, its hardware, and its terms and conditions.
Well the USB cable that charges the controller sounds like the killer feature...
I was really surprised yesterday when I learnt that the 360 controller is powered by throw away batteries, I honestly thought it charged the same way as my PS3 controller, my toothbrush is kinda powered the same way Just another example of how old skool the 360 is in terms of tech
Controller charged by USB is something that my PS3 does. I think a battery powered controller is a thing of the past at this point
Lol. Nobody believes you. Looking at your comment history and the number of times you've trolled xbox articles, I seriously doubt you didn't know that 360 uses both AA and its own rechargeable battery pack.
They only reduced the deadzoning on the sticks by 20-25% (from what IGN says), so even the stick precision of that controller is behind the DS3.
Xbox 360 and xbox One has the option to use batteries and battery packs. Complaining about it is as about as stupid as complaining about being able to charge a cellphone with a wall Jack or with other USB devices Are you guys complaining that xbox controllers come with the battery case standard? I've had two xbox 360 controllers where the battery pack would not hold its charge after a while. Swapped the battery pack without having to replace the controller. My Harmony One comes with a removable battery pack for this very reason. Lots a new devices simply use rechargeable AA and AAA lithium batteries now(way better option for getting better deals and buying the batteries you want)
No need to troll like that. This is the one thing that MS appear to have done really well. The 360 controller was brilliant and this looks like another improvement. The vibrate feature on the triggers could be put to great use.
What? whos trolling? Its a really neat feature...
@sand Come on mate...you're not fooling anyone ;)
Vivo on the triggers? Mmmm... sounds hardcore, although I doubt if it makes that much of a ''gaming experience'' difference.
Well N4G is PlayStation land. http://n4g.com/news/1273917... Almost nobody is capable of staying on topic or coming up with realistic coherent thoughts. They have to act like children. I'm surprised half the comments didn't get marked down for immaturity. Anyway the new Xbox is controller looks and sounds like its made for the core. Finally a newly designed D-pad. better mapping with A, Y, X, B. individual motors within the triggers hopefully its as comfortable as ever. From the sounds of it, this controller can't disappoint.
I love the controller but hate the online policy, all you should need is a disk to play or verify...
Totally agree, the left stick is in the correct position for Driving Games and Shooters and the D-Pad is now great for Fighting Games. The Dual Shock 4 would be great too but Sony refuses to move the left stick to the better position just because Xbox did it first.
I grew up with the Dualshock, there is no need to move the left stick
It looks disorganized and feels weird the Xbox Controller.
It would be best controller if there was no Dual Shock 4!
Ha ha ha, good one, ds4. . . . .oh, you were being serious?
We haven't even got our hands on it yet...........
But I thought I was the controller?! Make up your damn mind, Microsoft.
MS + consumer in control does not compute.
I agree that xbox1 via " DRM and konnect" have the best consumer rights control on the market...
to me at least i think it looks ugly compared to the 360 controller
I like the vibrating triggers, mode feedback is always good. I bought all current gen consoles, but the 360 controller always been my fav.
I love what the new WIFI Direct give to the controller. and other mobile device.. ps4 2.1 2mbs verses X1 250mbs
Best controller: arguable Best next-gen console: ..........meh
Only one way to find out, time will tell. People said the 360 would be destroyed too, it ended up selling three times as much as the original Xbox. If the Xb|one can pull that off, we will be looking at record shattering sales.
You NEED an internet conection to play the thing i dont think it will not sell as much as the 360 did, almost 80 mill sold but only about half have xbox live, i just dont see it being as popular as he 360.
360 really didn't have much record shattering sales all that those records go to the Wii, the PS2 and the original DS. And I don't think any console will reach those levels of success.
The hardcore aren't buying the X1's new policies and MS will have to try REALLY hard to convince casuals to buy it as an entertainment device. The AppleTV sold 16 million units over 2 years at $99 pricetag, an APPLE product. MS is taking a huge risk.
Yes, an apple product, that doesnt play high end games. The Xb|one is a game console, at first, and a media center at second, purely for trying to expand their market.
@Foxgod Sorry i had to login to reply. Did you just say "Xbox1 a gaming machine first and a media center second?" Just out of curiosity. From what you have seen so far, how did you come to that conclusion?
What do the triggers look like? I think they are really big now. They changed the triggers.
i cant wait to play so many games with that controller! oh wait...
I am a huge Sony fan and I'll admit there is one thing I like better about the 360 over the PS3 and that is the controller (minus the D-pad). Not only the controller itself is comfortable in my hands, it's also much more sturdy than my DS3's. The XOne looks like they improved on the comfort and the buttons aspects of the controller. I can't wait to try both the DS4 and the XOne controller.
I'm sorry thats sound like a lie to me. That bytch feels cheap. like a type of toy you get from the dollar store. even people who buy expensive stuff can tell quality, and there is no quality in that.
Still uses AA batteries It's a failure
The D-pad is awful for one look how the directional button aren't even separated. The DS4 D-pad is far better and the PS Vita's is somewhat similar. I have big hands also so that battery pack spot on the 360 controller always annoyed the hell out of of me. I personally think even with having big hands that the controller is too bulky. Another huge plus for me on the DS4 is the touch screen. I can't stand trying to type with a controller or having to hook up a keyboard. To me the Xbox One controller seems like it was made for nothing but CoD and Forza. Other than that it really sucks in my opinion. That D-pad will be useless for fighting games you will constantly be making incorrect commands. Firstly the D-pad is so fat, secondly look how the D-pad sits in that concave circle. It will only make it even harder to use that way. I mean to each their own comfort wise but the DS4 is a better all around. It also doesn't need AA batteries or Microsoft's rechargeable pack.. Hated buying those as well, just yet another way for Microsoft to cash in.. As if they aren't cashing in on just about everything.. I don't get how people can support someone blatantly ripping you off.. You know Microsoft could have easily removed the batteries altogether but of course not.. Why when you will have to be forced to run out and buy the rechargeable battery pack.. Not like them charging you yearly to use your own Internet isn't enough. Xbox Live is far from perfect either and has had its far share of problems. So I really don't understand how anyone can defend paying for Xbox Live.. Cool paying for ads and to use my own Internet that I already pay out the ass for monthly well "Hot Dog!" sounds like a deal!
Some butt hurt idiot just PM'ed me about calling it a touch screen.. but it has a resolution therefor calling it a touch pad or screen really makes no fucking difference. Now if I said it actually displayed something I could understand you getting butt hurt but I didn't, I simply said it could be used for typing.. God damn some people are truly pathetic.. I mean going out of your way to PM me about that? Get a damn life, got nothing good to say about your precious Xbone but you call me out on saying "Touch Screen"... Then call me a fanboy practically. You know believe it or not I planned on buying the Xbox One but I can't help Microsoft screwed that up. Hell I had a 360.. *face palm*
I'll hold my reservations until I try out the new controller, though not being able to charge it through usb strikes me a bit as odd. But considering I have a wired controller hooked up to my 360 that I still tend to trip over, I guess I'm in no position to call a battery pack antiquated by any means...
I can't wait for the " Official MS Universal DVD/Cable Remote " to be released for the price of $59.99 and I think I might have to invest in The Clapper just to see the Xbox1 will turn off and on.
If I bought a console for the controller, I would undoubtedly buy the XB1. Fortunately for Sony, PS4 is better in every other aspect. What the hell is a controller going to do without games?
Different people have different tastes. I personally prefer the feel the of the dualshock as I have small hands and I like the orientation of the analog sticks. Though I have friends who prefer the feel of the 360 controller. Whichever suits your playstyle and is comfortable to hold. I still feel the the dualshock has the crown when it comes to fighting games because of the d-pad. The latest 360 controller tried improving on that with the rotating d-pad thingy-m'jig. From the looks of it, the d-pad problem seems to be solved with the XBONE controller.
Too bad that the console sucks! I will get the controller for PC though :-p
