Xbox 360 Tron Wired Controller
Look but don't touch!
Let's get the good stuff out of the way first: this is a really fine looking controller. Gorgeous. In the brief time it was working, all of my friends agreed that the design was fantastic and looks great lit up. Also, the company's customer service was very fast and very professional.
Unfortunately, this is not a controller you should be using. It's a piece of TRON memorabilia that should be on your shelf. I had my controller for about three weeks before it stopped working correctly. I'd define my use as light to moderate in that time: an hour or two of gaming a night and maybe three or four hours on the weekend. I was even going out of my way to be gentle with it... no death grip, no throwing it around or treating it roughly. About three weeks in, the right control stick started dragging to the left, and as that is the stick that controls the camera in most games, it quickly worsened to the point of being unusable. I contacted the company and they offered to send a replacement if I sent them my now broken controller back. I did and they got my new controller back to me in about two weeks.
The new controller lasted five days before the same exact problem started. FIVE DAYS. For an officially licensed controller, that is beyond terrible. I didn't bother contacting the company for a replacement. It sits in the corner of my room gathering dust. Clearly, the company knows how to design a good looking controller... but they also clearly cannot make on that actually WORKS. Maybe this is strictly a problem with this model but I have no intention of buying anything this company sells again. I'll stick with the official Microsoft controllers, thanks.
Pretty but broken. Don't buy unless you're one of the lucky few who know how to fix controllers yourself.
Well... I would prefer this for ANY game here. And I love this not only because of the vibration but just the feeling of it is superb.
found this by accident
I was shopping my local store and stumbled across one of these. I didn't know why, but it just looked so appealing that I had to buy it. I've never opened it yet. Not sure whether to keep it or sell it.
i love this controller it looks and feels Amazing if u were lucky enough to get one good for you :)
Very good controller i would recommend it to anyone, but the one i got 1 month after Christmas right trigger broke had to return to get refund and there are no more left. ("sigh")
Amazing piece of hardware.
I came across this controller while I was on a trek to find a good gamepad for my recent plunge into PC gaming. My buddies always tell me that the 360 controllers are easily the best to use and on a whim I started searching.
Saw this, and instantly fell in love - a bit pricey but when it finally came in I understood why.
This is a quite possibly the highest quality controller I've ever had.
It has a glossy topface and the bottom is smooth, durable heavy-duty plastic with the feel of carbon-fiber. The sides have stylized grips in the vein of technological advancement - and they are accentuated by the glowing led lights.
OH THE LIGHTS.
The glow of the tron controller has my dorm-mate hypnotized every time i get ready for a particular game session.
I also like the fact that it is wired because if it wasn't I'm pretty sure I'd be throwing away all my dosh for batteries.
The length of the wire is not an issue - I game on a pc, it hasn't really affected me, but i suspect console gamers will have their complaints.
The buttons are quite responsive, and the sticks are a bit springy - it is better this way. The triggers do their job, and everything comes together to make this amazing piece of hardware.
You get your money's worth, this is an insanely well-made 3rd party product.
so this controller is everything i would ever need from a controller but the only problem is that my xbox 360 mic doesnt work with it... does anyone know what kind of mic does work with this controller? i was thinking a wireless mic might work but im not sure
Pick it up while you can
When I heard about this controller I was pretty excited. I was going to pick one up and decided to wait the Holidays and everything.This was until I found out there is only 20,000 made and now they are hard to find. Luckily my local gamestop had one and now I am the proud owner of one of these cool controllers. They also came out with a limited edition orange and they are already gone with only 250 made. If you fine one of these I would pick it up because they are on ebay for around $80.00 - $150.00 now. P.S the controller looks and works great!!
I think it's the best controller on the 360
Let me get the one bad out of the way. It's wired. The good though far outweighs the bad. It's easily the best controller for the system. It feels great in the hands, the buttons are good and responsive which is pretty impressive for a 3rd party controller. The rumble feels great. The best part of the controller is the D-Pad. No more unresponsive d-pad as this solves the issue that plagues the regular MS official controller. I can actually play fighting games with this controller. I heavily suggest this if you are looking for a very comfortable and very responsive controller.
The Baddest Controller on Planet
I purchased this for my PC running windows Vista and BAMM! It works! I am very happy with this controller. I had a Microsoft wired controller first and in my opinion this controller equals it, in durability, playability, and feel. Someone gave this controller a 1 rating.....Ridiculous. The TRON controller is not only as good as the MS brand its worth more in the long run if you take care of it and someday want to liquidate it. I just wish I could afford a few of these so I could cash in on the movie craze week before christmas.
I don't know if it will work in any other OS on PC, and I uploaded 2 cool pics for Tronnies.....
