Xbox One Wireless Controller
A solid upgrade
Microsoft did a solid upgrade to the controller the new rumble triggers are very nice and the d-pad was one of my biggest problems with the 360 but I have one major problem with the amount of money you put into the controller R&D what's with still having AA Battery.
xbox one garbage
this xbox control is garbage the buttons are bad the grip is bad the sticks are bad everything is bad buy a playstation 4. playstion 4 is the best console you can buy
overall design of the controller is a decent upgrade from the 360 feel is good BUT the controller feels cheaply made less than a week after receiving my XB1 the L trigger is sticking and it overall just feels weak. I will say that it was easy to submit a support ticket with Microsoft but now I need to send in my controller in order to receive replacement1?!?! SO I suppose I have no choice but to buy a second (which I would have eventually done anyway) in order to keep playing during the turnaround time.. Great...
Good but some drawbacks
It is a solid controller with a good overall design. They either burn through batteries extremely fast, or I just have bad batteries. My left thumb stick has something wrong with it and I am still waiting for an answer from Xbox about returns. It still functions but there is definitely something wrong with it. Other than that, the feel is good, it is very light, almost too light, and all the new vibration features are fantastic. The thumb sticks are smaller than the 360 but still work well. I would say it is a huge improvement to the 360 controller, it just should have a little more weight to it.
Best gaming controller around!
What I love about this controller is that it does not feel like different controller from the Xbox 360, but a better and more improved one. It is lightweight, smooth, and very comfortable in my hands. I can't wait to play my new Xbox One with this controller tomorrow!
The Best Controller
This is the best controller I have ever held , it feels like it was made for my hands. I own a 360 and ps3 and preferred the xbox controller slightly due to the left stick being higher making fit better in your hand. I didn't think the could improve it that much but they did. The triggers make no sound and are molded for your fingers. Also, the analog stick are slightly smaller which gives you a better grip. The D-pad also has a much improved feel to it. If you are buying an xbox one you will be more than pleased.
I was skeptical at first of this controller because it looked like a copy and paste of the last one. I loved the 360 controller don't get me wrong, I've never used anything better, until now. Everything I loved about the old one is back along with tons of cool new features. The triggers feel better, the matte finish and grip on the thumbsticks not only look cool, they also provide a great feel that's very fresh. And most apparent of all is the new D-Pad (the only questionable thing from the last controller) which is great and extremely functional. I'd highly recommend this to everyone.
Well, they've done it once again. The 360 controller was always referred to as THE gaming controller and all around best controller for gaming. The Xbox One controller takes what they had for the 360, and improves upon it EVEN MORE! The textured grip around the thumbsticks is AWESOME! The rumble motors in the trigger, while at first skeptical, are amazing as well. You have to experience them in a game in order to realize how much of a game changer this is. Overall, this controller is definitely worth it.
The best gaming controller ever!
I picked up an extra Xbox One controller today, and simply put, the Xbox One controller is the best gaming controller I have ever held in my hands. Now, before I continue, I just want to say that I have been playing video games almost all my life and I have held various types of gaming controllers including: SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, Playstation 2, Xbox, and Xbox 360. I am a huge Xbox fan, but I sincerely tried my best to be as honest as I could with this review and give as much information as possible. Begin the review...now. When I became the owner of an Xbox 360, the Xbox 360 controller became my favorite controller of all time. It was precise, it was well built, and it was comfortable to hold in my hands. Well, Microsoft basically took the Xbox 360 controller and made it twice (if not more) as good. The Xbox One controller is so well designed, built, and comfortable, that I almost wonder if I shall enjoy the Xbox 360 controller nearly as much as I used to. So, what makes the Xbox One controller so much better than the already awesome Xbox 360 controller? Well, to begin, the Xbox One controller is lighter than the Xbox 360 controller. No, this isn't bad. This is actually quite good. After holding the controller for a while, it almost feels as though you aren't even holding anything in your hands and in my opinion, it only further enhances the experience. Secondly, the analog sticks are smaller and more comfortable than the previous controller. I have heard some complaints about the size of the analog sticks and the so called "sandpaper" outskirts of the controller, but I personally don't feel too much of a difference in size and texture and I enjoy the feel of them more than the original analog sticks. My hands are somewhat small, but even if you have bigger hands, I think that the analog sticks would still be comfortable. I have also heard some complaints about the analog sticks being too "loose" and moving all over the place. I don't really think the analog sticks are "loose." They feel normal and don't feel that delicate. In fact, I think they are quite satisfying in terms of navigation and mobility. Next, we have the triggers and bumpers. These are probably one of the best features about the Xbox One controller because they make virtually no noise when you press/squeeze them and they feel very smooth to the fingers. They are also much closer together, and thus, they are very easy to use and doesn't require too much effort to access. Next, we have the D-Pad. Like the triggers, the D-Pad has been modified greatly. I didn't care for the D-Pad all that much on the Xbox 360 controller because it didn't feel right and was too much of a hassle to navigate menus with it. However, with the new Xbox One controller, the D-Pad actually feels like it has a purpose and it feels like it will be far more useful for navigating menus on the Xbox One (if you choose not to use the Kinect). Finally, the last major improvement I see on the Xbox One is the removal of the battery casing on the back of the Xbox 360 controller. Instead of having a cover for batteries on the Xbox One, the batteries are actually in the controller and allow the user to have a more natural grip on the controller. When I was holding the Xbox One controller, it felt so good knowing that there was no battery cover on the back of the controller and because everyone has a slightly different grip, I think it will enhance overall gameplay considering you have much more freedom on the back of the controller. No, I have not played any games with the controller, but I don't even think it matters. Why? Because this controller is so well built. I just know it will be an amazing piece of equipment when you are using it for your entertainment purposes on the Xbox One. Well, that is all I have. I hope I was able to give some helpful insight to those who do not yet have the Xbox One controller. I can assure you that you have absolutely nothing to worry about. Microsoft has always been a reliable company and they have certainly not stopped proving that they have what it takes to bring us gamers an awesome experience. Now, go forth stress free and have fun with your Xbox One! :)
Tried it with demo game at show.
Best controller. Comfortable, better than 360 controller, vibration feedback and good design. Overall a well made controller. Xbox one will be awesome! 15 or more exclusive.
