Nearly 1,700 people have reported the issue in Microsoft’s help forums.
This happened to me while I was playing Halo 5, I thought it was my battery at first then it happened again. Its probably a firmware issue.
This headline highlights the closeness between TheVerge and Microsoft. Previously they didn't even want to cover the story that people were reporting. Now, instead of saying 'Microsoft confirms there is a disconnection issue' it says Microsoft 'will commit' to fixing it. The Verge should not be doing the PR work for the companies it covers.
Yea this has happened a couple times for me. But oh well it’s just a software issue. Dualsense controller they have hardware issue where the triggers get loose.
Sony has a history of making games too... would be nice to see Microsoft do that. But you only care about possible matching negatives I guess. 😂🤦🤷 27995;♀️
No they don't have a hardware issue. That's horseshit. 20 people on an entire resetera thread doesn't count. Stop spreading lies. You're comparing the 1,700 people on official MS forums, to a random resetera thread with only a few people. NO MEDIA SITE worth their salt would ever report on it because it's within the bounds of acceptable failure rates for any single peice of electronics out there. Meaning, it's INSIGNIFICANT to even bother reporting on
The controller disconnects? Why don't we hear about this more
Let me guess 10 people reported this trigger issue and you will somehow find a way to equate this to 1700 people complaining about disconnects?
Why wouldn’t the trigger issue be widespread^ come on.. use your brain. Just because you can only afford one console doesn’t mean you should defend it.
Looks like MS are also asking fans if they would like features of the DualSense to be incorporated into the Series X/S controllers. Of topic: having trouble connecting due to server error all morning.
https://www.techradar.com/n... Yep that's here.
Lol, yes I didnt want to post a link in case someone was trying to submit it, but since you've done it I will now post mine by a different site. https://www.videogameschron... I would like to know what all the people that called the DS haptics and adaptive triggers a gimmick, what are their thoughts about this. Also if and or when MS adds similar features would they embrace them or still think they were gimmicky. "The DualSense controller's impressive feature set has inevitably led to some Xbox owners asking for the same sort of technology to be used in the Xbox Wireless Controller, especially as developers seem to be taking advantage of them." If you cant beat em, join em.
I had a similar problem with an og xbox one a few years back. It would randomly disconnect the controller but after a second or two it would resume.
Fucking Microsoft. On my PS4 I’ve got 2 “Xbox studios” games, minecraft dungeons and minecraft story mode season 1. Story mode doesn’t load at all, just a spinning loading icon, and dungeons comes up with an error code when selecting your character. Every , single , time. The only 2 games I own that are glitched , however minor, are both made by Xbox. Pointless story I know I just think it’s a funny coincidence.
Minecraft Story Mode was developed *and* published by Telltale Games. Your narrative breaks right there, buddy.
What about Minecraft Dungeons though? Seems as thought the narrative still stands albeit a bit wobbly, but its still standing.
You're gonna pretend only MS software has bugs? That's cute.
Ok, minecraft is an Microsoft/Xbox property. All I was saying buddy is that it’s funny how it played out on my PS4,the only two games I’ve ever played that have had issues for months without them being patched. Buddy I’m not playing sides buddy just thought it was funny, bud
My one x did this last night on ori and the blind forest. I tried to restart and it hung. I had to hold the power button to turn it off and then got an error on restart. I thought it was bricked at this point but then it started fine?! Other games that fail to sometimes start are forza 7, forza horizon 4 and the Microsoft store often takes a few attempts to load. I have an OG xbox in a different room also and have the same issue.
My PS5 will turn on about once a week and the controller connects, and the UI makes the startup sounds, but no response. I'll press the power button on the system to put it back to sleep and turn it back on. The controller doesn't connect this wake-up. I have to hold the power button for it to do a full system reboot to work again. It is nice that Ive seen both Xbox and PS5 have feedback/error reporting built-in (though PS5 has to detect an error or crash; in my unresponsive issue, it's undetected).
Not to be that guy, but you are reaching. It’s actually rather annoying. I get that it’s fun to make fun at Microsoft-but that’s a completely different issue. Don’t be that guy.
I've had this problem a couple of times. Glad they are addressing it.
Do the series xbox controller still have this shitty connection button?
haven't had any issues with mine yet,been playing AC and pubg almost everyday, i do remember updating the controller a while back tough
Only happened to me once. But my understanding is some are having this issue more than once.
My One X had an issue for its first year until it got patched up - while asleep the Wifi card would just die. The system needed a full reboot any time I played it to get it to turn back on, annoying as heck.
No trouble for me yet, buy I am using the elite 2 controller so idk if that matters.
I think the issue might be exclusively for the XSX/S controllers. Different controller model means different firmware most likely.
My One X had that problem for sure up until maybe last summer, I think they patched it. My Series X is just fine, no problems at all. off topic: 2 of my buds on the other hand, while playing Cod: CW, they get kicked/dash-boarded multiple times a night. Its strange because when they switch back to Xbox one S, it doesn't have that issue. Cod is the only game that happens with when we play.
COD: CW is still Broke AF. It's causing weird issues on both next gen systems. I uninstalled from my PS5 after it completely powered down my system one day to the point where I had to unplug the console before the power button even worked again. Split screen is also buggy as hell. I ended up picking the game up on sale on PC and I'm enjoying it there instead. Its a shame I wasted my money on the console version just because I was very interested in the dualsense features.
Good to know. I thought something was wrong with my Series X but looks like a known issue. Good thing I have two controllers.
I've been through five elite controllers through warranty exchange and they were all progressively worse in some way. I will never buy another premium microsoft controller again.
Ya my first controller came with one of the triggers vibration not working, I want to blame it on shipping but who knows. Sent it back (controller only) and they gave me a controller in another case with the accessories and so far so good. Been 9 months.
This should go without saying right? .... right?
