Lol! AA batteries! Doesn't the Xbone still use them? Now that's NexGen! After spending $59.99 on a Xbone controller you'll still new a $24.99 Play&Charge kit to even come close to the DualShock 4, but F*** it you can always just watch that exclusive Xbone TV..... Oh wait I already have that too! Sorry but M$ should have included a battery in its controllers with the 360 and Bone. Not doing so just smells of greed. Well, at least they have wifi in the Xbone, the 360 was missing that at launch too. Lol!
PS3 was missing rumble at launch and the sony execs tried telling us it was a last-gen feature. PS4 is missing wireless headset support and CD and mp3 playback...and its DS4 with the superior rechargeable battery pack lasts all of ten minutes during gameplay. At least with the xbox you can change the batteries without having to buy a whole new controller or tethering it to the ps4. Keep trolling, though.
I am not really for AA batteries for Game Controllers, but it does hurt to see the weak battery performance on the PS4. Wish Sony added the quick battery charge in their controllers like some of their walkmans. Having said that it is not a big deal IMO to have AA batteries in our controllers.... just look at all the remotes we have. We still use batteries!
Decent wireless controllers were a godsend. I remember having Dualshock 2 extension cords, and my cat chasing/scratching the hell out of them.
Yeah, I don't miss wired controllers one bit.
The Atari Lynx (which crushed the Game Boy on a technical level) had a backlit screen way before the GBA did. The unfortunate part to this was that it ate through six AAs in about a half hour due to that fact.
game saving those that remember the nes days know only a limited number of games had a battery backup. There were times when i left my console on for days to continue in a game.
