The Xbox One controller: Projectors, smells (!), and other stuff that didn’t make it in

GamesBeat got an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at Microsoft's process for making the Xbox One's new controller. Today, we look at early prototypes, some crazy functions that didn’t make it in (like Smell-O-Vision!), and where all that money went. (Microsoft, Xbox One)

The projector thing could've been really cool. A better idea than what Sony's doing with the light bar.

Those AA Batteries sure did Make it in.

you do understand that there is an option for a rechargeable pack right? you're not limited to using batteries unless you absolutely want to use them. buy the charge kit with the rechargeable battery and a sync cable and cut the nonsense out. NEEEEEEEEEXT!

Yup they did! And when my batteries run low, I'll pop in 2 more rechargeable AA batteries and go back to sitting 20 feet away, wireless. Meanwhile you'll be looking for your cable and then be attached to your wire while gaming.

I think having the choice of AA batteries or rechargable batteries is much better than the controller having just rechargable battery that would require you to dissemble the controller to swap out the battery if it craps out.

headblack you must be retarded going full jew on m$ why would i pay extra 25 bucks when sony does include a superior non AA battery way for 100 less ?

In my experience I find AA batteries better solution than recharcheable pack. Offers more flexibility. When replacing batteries I always swap them from my batterycharger. Also not that expansive to buy more or if needed better recharcheable batteries.

$80 for a controller charger combo, wow kinda expensive don't you think? Compared to $60 and a USB cable that everyone and anyone basically have. Ohh well getting both systems can't wait.

It would've been pretty cool but the batteries would drain so freaking quickly..

I want to -- nay, NEED to -- try those smelly controllers myself. The idea is so dumb that it has to work.

Don Mattrick came up w/ that one...

A more practical feature would have been a built in Hot Pocket Dispenser.

While I like the feel of the new controller, can't help but consider how that money could have gone toward games. Oh well, will eventually see if it was really worth it.... I do enjoy the new triggers and their rumble.
