Good controller, but deceptive gimmicks.
on December 27, 2014
Microsoft has always made decent hardware, but they've always made some darn good controllers. For those of us with bigger hands, wider grips, this controller feels more at home than other competitor variants. The device works as intended, but there are some cons that have to do with accessories. But first the pros.
Comes with 2x batter compartments. One with rechargeables built in and one that you can use your own batteries in.
Comes with charging cord.
Is easy to handle with larger hands.
Buttons * joy sticks / d-pad all feel and hold up solidly even after vigorous use.
Huge list of compatible games that require little or no tweaking.
EVERLASTING battery life.
DOES NOT INCLUDE WIRELESS DONGLE. BAD MICROSOFT, BAD.
If you buy a dongle you must install it. Plug and play does not always work. If by chance that dongle was purchased from a 3rd party to save money, you have to play around with the driver files under the device manager before it will work.
