Internal rechargeable battery! Xbox finally learned!
Personally I prefer user replaceable. Having options are always better than not.
Wow. Glad to hear! Makes sense. I bet next gen Xbox follows suit.
No, they have done it correctly at the first time, battery with 40h of gameplay, while the competition has 8h.
Xbox has finally evolved
this will wind up costing more than the current gen xbox console!!
This controller is really impressive. I love the fact that you can adjust the stiffness of the analogue sticks. Cool!
Just like I used to do with joysticks back in the '80s, I still have an old Gravis that supports this. I don't know why this feature went away for so long..
Love Elite controller. Hopefully it will stay around $150. They didn't announce a price, did they?
$179 on xbox.com
Oh wow. Ok. Thanks man.
welcome to 2013 MS
kinda miffed about the non replacable battery i like to swap out my play and charge one with AA batteries if im playing in bed and it dies but hopefully they aren't bullshitting on the 40 battery life.
So will this internal rechargeable battery suck just as much as the battery in the DS3 and DS4 or will MS actually make internal battery in controllers viable for a change?
First xbox controller with built-in rechargeable batteries.
