Game Idealist takes a look as to whether or not the Xbox One Limited Edition Halo 5: Guardians Master Chief and Spartan Locke Wireless Controllers are worth buying.
If it wasn't for the elite controller i think i would have bought one of these or maybe both.
I already have a couple XBox 360 Halo controllers that are still sealed. I might pick up on of these however before Halo 5 is released. We'll see. They look nice and I need a new controller since one of my others won't synch up with the XB1.
I wish they made an Elite version of these...
Cut a rectangular hole for the switch on the top and mount it to the bottom half of the elite. That should work.
I don't understand. They're worth it if you like them. How is this news?
It's an article for whoever wrote it to generate cash from using amazon affiliate links to the products. Simple as that.
I'm fine with my Odst, Halo 3 Spartan Controller, my 2 Halo 4 Controllers - which in hindsight was a bad deal considering how cheaply made the Halo 4 ones were and how they fall apart so easily, meh
Really? My Halo 4 UNSC controller is still in perfect condition and I used it from the Halo 4 launch until now just not as much since I'm primarily on Xbox One.
I think he us referring to the ones that came with the console and not the UNSC one that was sold separate. My 2 I got with the console are also stuffed. One had a dodgy left thumbstick and the other had a dodgy bumper button. I was really disappointed with them. Looked great as did the console but didnt have the same quality as there normal controllers
Figured I would reply since we have almost the same avatar and since everyone else who replied is also sporting a chief avatar. In regards to your comment, I have the halo 4 controller. It's no different than a normal 360 controller. Take care of your controllers! Unless you were referring to the ones that came with the console, like Benchm4rk said.
@halo2odst2 tell us more about your bs story..
Already have the Chief controller pre-ordered. So, yeah for me it's worth it.
Yeah same. I got the console pre ordered too. Both will go nicely sitting next to that big statue in the limited collectors edition
How many Xbox worth buying will the media do? I don't see any playstation worth buying. I'm guessing every thing ps is worth buying. Talk about media bias bull crap.
Master chief controller yes, it's iconic and long lasting throughout every Xbox gen so far. The Locke one may only be properly relevant for a game or two so I'll stick with the Chief controller and day one controller for now.
I have the Halo 5 console pre-ordered as well as the Master Chief controller. They're worth it to me.
100% agree. Only way to go :)
All these articles on questions about worth buying... Honestly it's up to you. Make up your own decisions and don't let the media do it for you. My opinion but seriously just see if you like it and if you don't, move on and don't buy it. Simple really. Cheers.
I could understand if there were somehow unique features not available on the standard edition. I could understand articles on the Elite controller. This is just a nice paint job, if you dig it then get it, of you don't then don't, there's nothing else to really write about is there? I've personally never been bothered by limited editions or extra junk or nifty paint jobs, just give me a game, give me a console, and give me a controller, that's all I need. Edit: just checked the prices, $70 bucks for the Halo theme, $55 for the standard controller, so no, not worth it. You can't play a paint job & $15 bucks can buy you an actual game on the marketplace.
Exactly. Well, to me, it is worth it but I respect your opinion. Everyone obviously has their own tastes and whether or now a new controller is worth the price tag that comes with it.
@blackout That's definitely true. I've never really cared for the mass market collector's edition stuff but I understand people's inclination to dig it. A lot of the time if there's a surplus you could get one of these guys a couple weeks later for the price of a standard controller. Honestly I'd probably more inclined to not be bothered by the extra $15 if cash wasn't tighter for me these days. Either way they do look cool for sure.
I want both!
"Are the Halo 5: Guardians Master Chief and Spartan Locke Xbox One Controllers worth buying?" Yes.
All depends on the individual and what they deem worth of thier purchase. Me am getting the MC controller cause I just want one .
Wish they would just sell the plastic covers. They pop off pretty easily and would make more sense then having a bunch of controllers sitting around.
So many Chief avatars in this thread hahaha
I'm getting the Xbox One Elite controller. I love its modular design.
Is it less than 100 dollars? Then yes.
$70 I believe!
I really like what MS is doing with X1 accessories ie...Controller designs. I would love for Sony to put more thought into theirs. Sweet looking Halo controllers.
Option people,option. That is all there is to it. If you want it, you can buy it. For me, my Elite controller is all I am getting. BUT there are really no right or wrong answer to it. It is up to the individual.
Its up to you, its a personal opinion and liking..but seriously you dont have to write something like this and post it geez its just a controller..an over expensive must have accessory that put a smile on investors.(coz they know you will never can live without it)
I pre ordered this bundle, last payday. http://www.game.co.uk/en/ha... More of a collectors item. My elite controller is pre ordered off the MS store, so I get that the day it releases, and that becomes my main controller. the locke edition will join my other collectors/special editions and stay boxed on my shelf.
