Okay, now extend the warranty of the base Xbox controllers as well. Sony offers a 1 year warranty on their controllers. Microsoft should do so as well.

I didn't know they didn't. How long is the controller warranty?

Mariusmssj341d ago (Edited 341d ago )

90 days. Like I have never seen a warranty shorter than a year before

Wow. 90 days is something I've only seen on refurbished products.

What is MS doing? Are all those people saying their controllers are fine despite hundreds of hours of gaming and should be the case for everybody else too are lying? Their controllers aren't perfect or sturdy or not prone to damages?

What are you even trying to say here?

badz149341d ago

nothing...just recalling the comments in the earlier articles calling people out as lying when they said anything about the drift issue and other problems of the elite controller.

but how the hell did they get away with only giving 3 months warranty in the first place?? My LG 4KTV backlight was out after 3 years of use. out of warranty, I went to an independent repair shop and even gave me 6 months warranty for it. 90 days warranty is like for something China made knockoff electronics LOL.

Can’t wait for Microsoft to send me my $100 back for fixing my elite 2

Mine has been working fine (though I don't use it a tonne) but now I can hear something rattling around inside it, like a little peice is loose in there. I hope it doesn't get worse.
