Say goodbye to that cumbersome battery pack at the back of the controller. It’s gone! You’ll no longer have to worry about clashing your knuckles against the box in the back. Instead, batteries go inside the controller!!!
lol big problem is now slightly smaller....hows bout we get rid of the batteries altogether? or at least make the controller cheaper so to compensate for the battery pack...just wallet rape that people ignore.
seriously wallet rape? a battery charger don't cost that much! i can either use my current rechargeable...so thats free, or buy a XB1 battery pack, no biggie.
Or Microsoft could go with the time, do something about our environment and just build a controller with a built-in battery. Can't believe that people are still defending AAA batteries, it's almost 2014 man.
seriously...wallet rape. that console is the definition of wallet rape. $500 machine thats weaker than $400 machine controller costs same if not more than a certain machine's controller that has battery built in (not to mention built in speaker) app's behind paywall forcing you to pay ms to use apps you already paid for. having ads on paid service (gold) but on the bright side the x1 takes you money instantly, all you have to do is point a 20$ xbl card at the kinect and bam! so convenient.
LOL this writer is so happy about the batteries going inside the controller? Its freaking 2013. No one buys batteries anymore. Hell, the last time I bought batteries was for a wireless PS2 Logitec controller. Sony understands how annoying batteries are. None of their controllers have ever needed batteries. And I should not have to go out and buy a rechargeable battery pack. This was a dealbreaker for me with 360 and it will be with XB1
Hopefully the xbox ones baterry packs will last longer. I went thru so many of those things last gen, they just stop working then I always have to be connected. Only had 1 sony battery totally die on me.
@Panthers Batteries are a "dealbreaker for you? Get out of here with that hyperbolic nonsense. I bought a package of rechargeable AA batteries for my XBOX 360 about seven years ago. I'm still using them.
It's so funny that this whole discussion has broken down into people yelling at one another do to buying batteries. Microsoft just can't catch a break, even when this article is clearly just some person hyped at having a next-gen console.
Batteries don't matter. Resolution doesn't matter. Price doesn't matter. Lies don't matter. Power brick doesn't matter. Paywall for apps doesn't matter. Seriously what is wrong with you guys this coming generation?
"I Spent An Afternoon With The Xbox One And It Was Amazing" "clap, clap" good for you. In the mist of anti Xbox one propaganda on this site, you may find a couple good ones, a shame.
Some people just want another thing to bitch about the XB-ONE, but yeah...having to buy a charger IS really inconvenient. However, M$, you should really lose the batteries, its 2013!
@Freedomland Batteries - I prefer batteries. I have had too many instances in which I couldn't game on my PS3 because the controller was not charged. Resolution - The "atrocity" that is resolutiongate will be a forgotten memory once developers get a handle on the system. Price - $100 is not going to influence my buying decision one way or another. Besides, I'm getting both systems. Powerbrick - I couldn't care less about an AC adapter. Lies - Grow up. Paywall - Moot point as both systems require a paid subscription to be fully functional.
Let me guess, you dont eat the crust on pizza either, dont drink old soda either right....its okay you keep waisting your(or you moms money) leave the american dream
Some people have it right. It's another added cost. It was never "I hate batteries so I'm not buying the system", but it's another annoying feature that Microsoft did not address on top of other annoying features that is influencing people not to buy it. Play and charge kit for the X1 is $24.99 on amazon. That's $25 on top of the $499.99 you are paying. Just another annoying thing you have to worry about also is when you buy your 2nd, 3rd, and 4th controllers too. While on PS4 you get 3 incentives when you open the box: free music for month, free plus for one month, and $10 towards your next game. Effectively making the PS4 actually 389.99 because you are going to spend that $10 sometime or another.
@Stiggs My tv controller died a year and a half ago....I still have to turn it on and off manually and change the inputs....batterys are a no go for me, especially triple a....I can steal double a from a work flashlight or something but only other controllers have triple a....also they are so expensive and so meniscuse I forget to buy them
It's just corrupt what Microsoft is doing. You know a big chunk of the money comes from their accessories right!? Hmmm... packing the Kinect with the system to help cover the money they are losing with actual console (that's clever but you are not fooling me). $59.99 on xbl gold compared to $49.99 PS plus. And now excluding an "accessory" that is essential to the long-term use of gaming on the X1. They could have easily just included the battery packs with the controller. But no... each play and charge kit cost $24.99 as of right now.
@Zod18 "Or Microsoft could go with the time, do something about our environment" How are rechargeable batteries worse than rechargeable batteries? I don't think you even thought your point through at all. "Can't believe that people are still defending AAA batteries, it's almost 2014 man." Firstly, it's AA. Secondly, what do you use in your tv,garage remotes? Why does it apply to Xbox controllers but not those? @Kingthrash Sure, lets compare the prices by comparing the console and controller, not the package. "but on the bright side the x1 takes you money instantly, all you have to do is point a 20$ xbl card at the kinect and bam! so convenient." Lol, trying to blend to different concepts into one. Here's the thing, if you want to put money on your account you either a) Purchase via console b) Purchase via store So if you choose option b, they're making it more convenient by not forcing you to type in that 25-digit code. Also, by your logic, you must hate credit cards, buying online, buying through console cause apparently you don't like efficiency. @Panthers " No one buys batteries anymore. Hell, the last time I bought batteries was for a wireless PS2 Logitec controller. " Of course not, because you buy one set of rechargables and you're set. @FreedomLand Batteries don't matter because there are things called rechargeables. Seriously, how many times does this need to be mentioned? Resolution does matter when comparing this-gen to next-gen, but not Xbox One to PS4. Now who said price doesn't matter? I think you're just trying to make your list as long as you can. "lies don't matter". Okay, seriously, it's pretty obvious now that you're trolling. "Power brick doesn't matter." Finally, back to something that was actually mentioned. It doesn't matter because it sits at the back of your tv and safe-guards the console. It's not like you're going to walking by your tv and happen to 'trip over' something behind your tv... "Paywall for apps doesn't matter. " Well this one does matter...If you're planning on buying a next-gen console for only offline use. @mikeslemonade "packing the Kinect with the system to help cover the money they are losing with actual console" Ever thought about the idea that they might want it to be one of Xbox One's stand-out concepts compared to other consoles? They didn't come up with all those kinect ideas just to be ignored.
Right, because it's not like there isn't a competitor doesn't require you to purchase additional batteries or a charger. Oh wait, there like totally is! How very considerate of that competing company to make a controller that doesn't require any constant or additional payments. What is that wonderful company called again? Sony, that's right.
^Logic "Firstly, it's AA. Secondly, what do you use in your tv,garage remotes? Why does it apply to Xbox controllers but not those?" TV remote lasts for one year, so roughly $1 cost for that. Garage... samething. My xbox 360 I have the play and charge and It certanly doesn't last for more than 2 weeks. "Batteries don't matter because there are things called rechargeables. Seriously, how many times does this need to be mentioned?" Yea another extra added cost. So you mean I have buy rechargbles which is like $6 and then a charger which is like $10. Nonetheless I had to buy something extra while the competitor has it packed in with the controller itself. And you have to have one set of rechargeables for each additional controller you buy. "Resolution does matter when comparing this-gen to next-gen, but not Xbox One to PS4." Apparently it does... why has it been on the news if it wasn't. Justin Bieber did something and it's on the news. Just because you don't like Justin Bieber doesn't mean it didn't matter. It's called negative PR and it's not good for Microsoft. "Ever thought about the idea that they might want it to be one of Xbox One's stand-out concepts compared to other consoles? They didn't come up with all those kinect ideas just to be ignored." And how has that been working for them..? Preorders are reportedly at the 3:1 ratio in favor of PS4. Was it really worth the risk to make the system package more expensive because at the end of the day the customer sees the price tag and if its worth it. ^Gigoran What the heck are you talking about..? PS4 includes the usb cable that connects to the system which simultaneously charges the controller. Yes of course you can buy the additional controller but they aren't nickle and diming you. There's a difference between "nickel and diming" versus pratical for business and good customer service.
@newzealander ignore them but on second thought,whats with these guys in every positive xbx article?..does it hurt?.if you dont like it.fine..no one is forcing it on you but kindly do the rest of us a favor and shut the hell up or get out of here...damn..so vocal yet so ignorant and stupidly biased...dont you guys get tired? .
^ Don't like it? Then don't read the comments. It's a comment section after all.
@mikeslemonade "TV remote lasts for one year, so roughly $1 cost for that. Garage... samething. My xbox 360 I have the play and charge and It certanly doesn't last for more than 2 weeks." You're avoiding the point. I'm talking about technology, not how long it lasts. Now if we're so far in the technological age, why do AA,AAA batteries even exist? Point proven. "It certanly doesn't last for more than 2 weeks." To add on, let me mention the word again. Rechargeable. "Yea another extra added cost. So you mean I have buy rechargbles which is like $6 and then a charger which is like $10." Again, let me mention the word. Rechargeable. You see the AA batteries from last gen? I'll just recharge them for next-gen. So what's this added cost? "Apparently it does... why has it been on the news if it wasn't." Find me the news showing that Xbox owners care about the difference between the PS4 and Xbox One. Don't get me wrong, they both look great. So why would it matter which one is better? Sure it would matter if you only cared about graphics, but that's what PC's for. "And how has that been working for them..? Preorders are reportedly at the 3:1 ratio in favor of PS4. Was it really worth the risk to make the system package more expensive because at the end of the day the customer sees the price tag and if its worth it. " So what you're saying is that you want both to be exactly the same? What's the point in existing if everything's the same. "Should I pick the Xbox or the PS4? Both look the same, both have the same computational capabilities, both focus on the same types of games, both have lots of sports apps, but no game apps, both only focus on adding more power. Hmmmm" " Yes of course you can buy the additional controller but they aren't nickle and diming you." I was going to mention this, but I thought it would be a very fanboyish thing to bring up. Because some has brought it up though, I will comment on this. Now here are two quotes written by you, unedited with full clarity of the spirit in the message. "Yea another extra added cost. So you mean I have buy rechargbles which is like $6 and then a charger which is like $10. Nonetheless I had to buy something extra while the competitor has it packed in with the controller itself." Second quote with you talking about the usb cables for the Dualshock controller: " Yes of course you can buy the additional controller but they aren't nickle and diming you. There's a difference between "nickel and diming" versus pratical for business and good customer service." So, tell me, what's this difference between 'nickel and diming' and 'good customer service'? Check and, mate.
He meant it was amazing getting Xbone180'd.
@Panthers Dude STFU, a dealbreaker!? So if the PS3 had batteries you would be happy to never had played Uncharted, TLOU, GOW, Heavy Rain ect? Gamers play games not consoles stupid fanboy
Freedomland- "Batteries don't matter. Resolution doesn't matter. Price doesn't matter. Lies don't matter. Power brick doesn't matter. Paywall for apps doesn't matter. Seriously what is wrong with you guys this coming generation? " Man, seeing it all there together really puts an even worse perspective on MS and their Xbox One. There are so many crappy things about it, it's not consumer friendly at all and that's without the DRM they proposed initially. It's like Xbox fans are addicted or something. At what point will enough be enough? When will MS cross the line for you guys? Does Major Nelson have to literally walk up to an Xbox fan and spit in his face before you realize they're no good? Add temp banning a loyal and very enthusiastic fans Xbox One to this list Freedomland. Got it early through no fault or deceit of his own, is a Gold subscriber yet banned from playing it online for telling people about how much he liked it. Seriously, F&@K Microsoft!
Here's a crazy thought. Spend $15 more on your second controller and get it bundled with the play and charge kit. I personally like replaceable battery packs more than replaceable controllers. $10 battery packs vs. $60 controllers sounds like a deal. Not having to sit a couple feet from my plasma while I charge my controller is nice too. Although at that distance not only can I keep warm, but that 50% more power will come in handy since I'll be close enough to count pixels. [email protected] temporary ban bitching. His consoles has been removed from the service since Microsoft isn't allowing retail consoles on until launch.
@familyguy Talking about crossing the line maybe you should look into sony's past, cause if those values mean so much to you, you shouldve stopped gaming long ago.
@ stings Yeah a pack of batteries can last awhile for my Xbox controllers. I actual wish my PS3 controllers had AA batteries. Before I sold my PS3 last week with my PS4 coming this Friday I was down to maybe 4 or 5 hours of gaming on 1 and about 8 hrs on the other controller. Irritating to sit off to the side of my TV using a 2 meter USB cord to charge while gaming. Both controllers were 3 or more years old, but like cell phones battery packs will lose its charge over time, not a matter of opinion but fact.
@zod18 , i don't know how much you used your ps3 but i used mine allot and i hated the ps3 battery solution , battery dies mid game and you have to plug it in with a tiny cord and sit right in front of the tv . xbox was much better just slap in some new rechargeable and keep playing !
@ andibandit I'd love to see you elaborate on that non-specific statement with some information that puts Sony on MSs level. @Death You're an addicted shill, the exact type I was talking about. So blind by MSs crappy way of doing things that you've created justification. 1st off: If MS was really concerned with their battery being easily user replaceable they would have included a replaceable rechargeable battery pack in the first place rather than send standard AA batteries. 2nd: The PS3 controller battery last for yeeeeears and even if it were to die you can buy a replacement for $6-$8. The PS3 instuction manual even tells you how to replace it. 3rd: USB extension cables are $1, ONE DOLLAR at any 99cents store. You have no reason to cry about charging it while sitting close. In addition to that the charge last like 30 hours so if it dies it's because you decided not to charge it. You're full of s*** so it only makes sense that you'd be full of crappy, poorly thought out excuses too. Such terrible excuses. 50 cent usb extension cable http://www.amazon.com/1-8m-... $3 battery http://www.amazon.com/eForC...
battery my ASS hell even PS3! YES PS3!! had a built-in BATTERIES! and that was 7 YEARS AGO!!! now we are about to enter the doors of the next gen and M$ STILL using AA BATTERIES??! HAHAHAHA!! that better be a freakin' joke!! holy mother of monkey tits
I hope they offer a version that's USB only like the current 360 USB controller because it works perfectly in Windows for playing emulators and the occasional Console Port where they did a horrible job on adaptation to keyboard/mouse control. I wouldn't spend the money on the "Play & Charge kit" considering I just read that it only charges while in standby mode. http://www.ign.com/wikis/xb... I would rather use good quality "precharged" AA batteries like Sanyo Eneloop which are 2000mAH or 2400mAH compared to Duracell Coppertop non-rechargeable AA batteries which are about 2200mAH. Plus modern precharged batteries don't degrade like old school rechargeable batters do.
@stiggs Notice that the things you have to IGNORE are not something that PS4 owners will have to at all. That is the problem in itself. Let me guess, the "optional" wireless network adapter that 97% of the word purchased didn't bother you (and I'm saying you still bought it of course) or the whole DRM thing would be another atrocity you would have shrugged off like nothing? Sometimes I feel bad that people like you are still buying the console after so many smart Xbox fans jumped ship to PS4 but at the same time made the console you are getting a much better one.
You do all know that the DS4 charges when the console is switched off so you won't have to worry about it not being charged when you turn it on to play? Just sayin to all the Xbox battery pack lovers who keep moaning about having to sit 3 feet from their plasma tv because the DS3 is running low on juice.
@Kingthrash360 um. perfectly said lol!
i was waiting for you to go full troll ;) that wasn't hard now was it. people like you are so blinded by brand loyalty that even the most insignificant thing such as batteries has to become bad news, and all good news is either BS lies PR spin. and for me personally external batteries is preferable, i have a ps3 and no i never had any issue with the batteries, but if by chance i did im happy knowing i can swap them out rather then have to send the control back to sony. and WTF you don't pay twice for apps, where did you get that nonsense from? anyone who pays for gold knows exactly how good it is, its a premium service and packed with features, hell i turn on my ps3 and im like wheres the apps! also the good thing about living in a small place like NZ...pretty much ZERO ads!
sorry sir i'm no "troll" or brand loyalist. to clear this up its time for....THE LIST 1. i dont know you but i know you never had to swap batteies out of a ds3...but i ask you, how many times have you had to either change aa batts or actually BUY a new battery pack? your wallet knows 2. you DO pay twice for apps my misinformed friend...say for instance, netflix. you pay 7.99 a month for netflix service. thing is you have to have gold in order to use netflix...so if your gold expires you will not be able to watch netflix regardless if you paid for netflix already. this goes for all apps paid or free. 3. gold is good the service is nice....lol ok but we are talking about a new generation now but even in the current gen ps+ killed gold just new game after new game...live gave you online mp and ads...psn was free this new gen you need ps+ for online mp but thats the only paywall...apps are not locked recording is not locked. oh and the ps4 with + comes with free games at launch gold...well it comes with ads, thats something oh and can you clarify "pretty much ZERO"?..because thats sounds like it has ad's. its you who are the fanboy my friend all i stated were facts you are twisting your argument with words like "pretty much" and arguments about never having to change the ps3 battery pack and somehow ignored the fact that you had to pay for a 360 one. and soon a xbox1 batt pack.
Please don't ignore the DS3's inconveniences. I play far away from my ps3 and it's simply not possible for me to charge it while playing, given the length of the usb cable. Instead, I have to rely on my 2nd controller and charge the 1st one while playing with the 2nd. Rechargeable AA batteries is definitely a better option for me. "Swap and go" rather than getting a new controller.
@justiceot That seriously mad no sense. You would rather swap batteries then grabbing a new controller. Both would be about the same inconvenience. My ds3 last about anywhere from 10-12 hours, how long do you game? Btw you can buy a USB extension for a few dollars...
had 2 ps3 controller batteries go bad. one has to be permanently plugged in and the other had to throw away because it won't work no matter what. also noticed both batteries were starting to fail before they permanently broke. (charge didn't last as long)
@Kingthrash "i dont know you but i know you never had to swap batteies out of a ds3...but i ask you, how many times have you had to either change aa batts or actually BUY a new battery pack? your wallet knows " Well, I had to change the batteries as many times as you had to pull out the recharge cable. How many times I had to buy a new battery pack? Once, ever heard of rechargeable batteries? Cause it sounds like Sony kids have never heard of them. Your second point is valid, but doesn't apply to me cause I only use my console to game. "gold...well it comes with ads, thats something" Mhmm because ads are very bad. I definitely don't want to see that 50% off all borderlands 2 DLC ad on the dashboard or the free game either. /s "its you who are the fanboy my friend " That's hilarious now! Do you even know what a fanboy is? It's one who is overly loyal to one thing while trashing others over opinions and views, not facts. Now let's see where New Zealander has trash-talked about the PS4... Hmm I don't seem to see any. Now let's look at you... Well, your entire comment reeks of it. The jokes on you kid. Also, I confirm that there are significantly less ads here in NZ compared to US. I googled dashboard pics of the US version and yeah, we have it good here.
kingthrash i have bought one XB360 battery pack since 2006...and i have used the same rechargeable AA batteries in between, my wallet has not been raped, but if you feel the financial burden then maybe you should ask for a pay raise. as for paying twice for apps ok fair call i have never used netflix, but true apps eg ign gamespot etc are free to use with gold, you are twisting things to make it appear all apps are paid for twice. as for PS+ killing gold thats purely your opinion, i have tried both and i know what i prefer. pretty much zero means the only ads we have here are microsoft ads that relate to the console, co car ads etc. i own both consoles and appreciate them for the different things they bought to this generation, but one thing i cant stand on here is the idiots that slam a console for something as trivial as batteries, im actually sick to death of seeing the trolls on here nit pick every stupid thing they can just to play down the competition.
Zero Adds and Zero TV features that the X1 is boasting about with cable, NFL, and USA only services. Get Xboned!
From working in retail for 6 years and knowing lots of happy PS3 customers/friends, I do not recall a single person sending away a controller to Sony. I still have my launch one. WTF are you going on about? The Xbox One has to last another 5-8 years. Will people stop saying things like 2013 is acceptable for batteries, 2013 is when the damn thing is launching. Actually they will do the same thing like with 360. They will wait 4-5 years and release an even more expensive controller with the battery built-in and you will all lap it up like the 360 controller with the "functional" d-pad.
lol, the Sony troll are here and they are mad.
im no troll but im sure even trolls are not mad at anything...really whats there to be mad about? no bulge at the bottom of controller...ps never had this prob...smh xbots have zero logic. but i may be wrong...please inform me what sony has done with the ps4 that would make any gamer mad?..other than being sold out. being too powerful? ps+? built in controller batt? 1080p? 399.99? no drm? remote play? no app paywalls? better multiplats? better exclusives? better design? no brick? gaikie? 30-50% more power? optional camera? indies?...lol i really cant see a problem.
@Kingthrash, you mad bro!
i guess im mad...i feel good but for somereason yall sayin im mad...lol of what. really of what. if ms want to charge for battery pack and yall willing to buy then go ahead...smh its just its 2014 and for people to except this type of sh....lol man forget it ps4 out in a few days too happy to feel sorry for early x1 adopters right now ...game on bros enjoy your new console ps4 or x1...
@kinthrash you are troll... Let me explain this to you, you came on a Xbox article where the guy really enjoy his experience with the Xbone. But you have have to bring up stupid ridiculous things like a battery pack on the controller. That's call trolling. It's not about price, drm, or 1080p its about you trying to be first to bring down this article. Edit: And i'm not talking about Sony gamers i'm talking about Sony Troll like yourself
@King COD: Ghosts is having framerate issues on ps4 but are still pushing 1080p. xbox dropped 1080p but has a special upscaler to get around this problem but ps4 will still have framerate issues because sony is stupid and stubborn and does nothing but lie to their customers yet the sony sheeple eat it up.
ohhhh so me stating a opinion is trollng now? i thought if i said something like "hahahaha ps4 dont need batteries!! this guy is stupid buying a x1 when ps4 is better" i understand that early x1 adopters feel like opinions are trolling but they are jus opinions. not once in my first or second commet did i say ps4....not once in the history of me have i said xbone or xbox1p or something a troll will do. smh so to see ms fans get so upset at criticism of batteries in controllers in 2014. by your logic anyone wh disagrees with anything said about x1 is a troll...smh
king not only are you a troll but you're the worst kind who thinks he can just say "its my opinion" and wow thats it, NO way can he be trolling. You just don't get it. #1 you came to an article where a guy was giving his impression on games, kinect, tv, multitasking, etc, etc which he concluded with "So what did I think of the Xbox One? I loved it." and the best you could do is go full retard rant about batteries and worst you only think the right way to do batteries is HOW SONY DOES IT which many perfectly sane people rather have batteries so they dont risk have to send the controller in if something goes wrong. Neither situation is perfect but even if I preferred sonys way its such a minor thing that I would not ever consider in my console purchase. #2 You are a well known xbox hater given your post history, so basicly it works like this: no one other than sonyfanboys take anything you say as creditable, the instant I see certain names I assume OK what BS is he spouting about now, you could say the same about me or any xbox fanboy in a ps thread but the difference is I try to remain balanced because I want a ps4 I just have to wait until I have the money so I don't go to ps4 threads just to troll, you on the other hand hate microsoft so really theres no need for you to be here, your opinion is born out of complete and utter brand loyalty and so its worthless to anyone interested in xbox. #3 When you troll as you do nothing changes, it just makes xbox fans not like ps fanboys more and same goes for when xbox fanboys troll ps threads. Being critical with common sense based comments is not trolling, I actually like negative opinions or something I like when its clear that person aims to be helpful but when all you ever do is bash sny and every little thing against one side and promote every thing on the other side it becomes obvious you have an agenda. Also constantly following something you have already mad3 clear you dislike is in fact trolling. Its like if I own a bar and you didnt like how I run it or the beverages but you hang outside everyday telling people who like it not to go in, why not let my bar fail on its own if its so bad= you dont because you are a hater. Tip: start a new account, behave like a rational human and your opinion will be appreciated, otherwise you are just speaking to the like minded sonyfanboys, you might get more bubbles but your opinion like all fanboy opinions will remain irrelevant.
playstation fanboys are only trying to make the x1 buyers realize they are getting the short end of the stick, thats all man. kind of like i know obama is one of the worst presidents that ever lived. the proof is there. but dumbasses think he's the best. its annoying as all hell. but you just gotta shut up and quit tryin sometimes. enjoy your xbox investment i guess
@Kingthrash360 "im no troll but im sure even trolls are not mad at anything...really whats there to be mad about?" Not mad? Sounds like you're getting a bit defensive to me. Look, here you are in a Xbox article trying to come up with points on why the Xbox is bad. Mhmm, definitely not defensive nor mad. /s @DEAD-DEVIL-DISCO And i'm here to get you to realise that 'better' is subjective in this case. What may be better for you, might not be better for me. So yeah, I'm going to enjoy my Xbox investment and you enjoy yours.
For anybody who didn't bother to read the article, it was a female gamer, not a 'guy'
so its set in stone Kingthrash360 is one of the biggest trolls there is.
@ kenmid & 4show Agreed. What a sad state of affairs. A story pops up of a gamer enjoying her first hand experience with the XboxOne and like clockwork the trolls show up and complain about batteries. I mean honestly? Complaining about batteries? Is this a new low for the PS4 trolls on this site? This is getting really sad and pathetic. I hope the community on here improves, because I really dont want to identify with the ps4 crowd if it continues like this. It's just embarrassing.
It's just insanity that people are saying that having to purchase and replace batteries or buy extra battery packs from MS for their controller to work is somehow better than the controller having a built in rechargeable battery. I don't get the logic? I really don't, its fucking ridiculous fanboyism at its best. Buying extra stuff and going through more effort is now apparently better than getting the equivalent for free and no effort. INSANE!!!
Here comes kingthrash again trolling at his worst. Dude get over it the system is awesome.
@4ShOw BRAVO!! WELL SAID
I dont beleive the guy at all seems like a flamebait article, i could make an article saying i spent a few hours with the wii-u and its the greatest thing in the world...but i wouldnt bother cause it would be flamebait and i would obviously be joking.
You seen that as flame bait? Are Sony fans mentally SANE!??? A woman is previewing this. You guys are no longer reading what you're trolling over? It's like you see what other trolls are saying and based on their anger level, you guys go all out without the whole picture or far from it. I don't know why this news has caught PS fans off gaurd MSFT has been saying what XBOX ONE was about for months. You simply started to believe your own damage control spin and lies over the past months. I will be looking forward to playing the most graphically impressive games ever on consoles, confirmed by media and the most advanced features and services.
@Pope_Kaz_Hirai_II what did I just read... I feel like my IQ just went down :/
cant believe im seeing disagrees on your comment when it makes complete sense.
I don't think it's wallet rape, but definately doesn't justify the start price when the PS controller is sam price with rechargable controller and nightlight/touchpad. MS fans should demand a price change in the controller. You guys are getting jipped.
And everyone though I was being a fanboy when I said the 360 was actually more expensive than the $600 PS3 in the long run. Batteries, battery packs, bigger hard drive, replacement headsets, replacement game consoles, WiFi adapter, HD DVD add on, etc were all needed to keep your 360 working and to make it compete with the premium PS3 that already had everything in the box at $600. I spent over 1000 on my 2 Xboxes like and idiot. $600 was actually a bargain for a PS3 with a PS2 inside it.
It's good to see someone enjoying their new next gen console. She has different priorities and preferences to me when it comes to gaming and that's perfectly fine. Even though she knows there's a big power gap between the xbone and the PS4, she's having a healthy attitude about it and not getting defensive or being in denial about it. She know's she's going to have fun regardless of the resolution. I personally would like the cheaper console that is more able to handle a bigger resolution, but also smarter A.I., longer draw distances, more complex physics, etc. I'm concerned with better visuals, but I'm also very passionate about bigger and better game engines and the PS4 is the one that's going to be able to go a lot further in both those areas because it's the extra power. I hope other future xbone owners can possess a healthy attitude like the author of this article and accept that they're going to have fun regardless of the significant power gap.
I bet when he spent the afternoon with the Xbox1 he was able to listen to his music.Maybe I am beating a dead horse,but it still blows me away that I can't listen to my tunes on the PS4.I am a Sony gamer and to find out that my new PS4 will do less then my PS3 as a home hub for my entertainment blows me away.I am hoping the more I complain about this maybe Sony will listen.
