Pathetic that controller still uses batteries

Isn't the xbox one supposed to be so advanced? Microsoft claims that having backwards compatibility is dated so why are these damn controllers still using batteries? They will be the only ones this gen still using them. Is it a wired controller too?

I don't understand. Do you want them to use batteries or be wired? Are you proposing a mechanical way to store energy? Capacitors?

I'm assuming he means changeable AA batteries (hello 90s). Nowadays lithium polymer is all the rage with wireless electronics but MS, rather than getting with the times, seems intent on squeezing as much profit as possible outta their customers.

Damn MS and their dirty technology. Where is my solar powered controller?

GET WITH THE TIMES ALREADY!

Is this confirmed? I was wondering about it. Sounds like a good idea. As with 360 I would rather swap out my rechargeable batteries that power all my remotes in my house at my leisure rather than have to wire myself in when my controller dies like PS3, or worse send the whole thing in for a replacement battery or buy a new controller. Kudos to MS

Yep i would rather have rechargeable AA batteries than a built in battery.

I'm so happy that the controllers will still use batteries. Who wants to be tethered to their system whenever their controller dies?

AA Battery controllers are absolutely outdated and stupid. I can't believe anyone defends this. MS needs to get with the times.

Lol at people actually letting their controllers die. Just charge while playing or while something is downloading.
