So the controller is USB chargeable?

$500 and you still need batteries


Are there honestly that many people who don't have a set of rechargeable AA's and a charger? Everybody has remote controls, wireless mice and keyboards, cameras, flashlights, etc. Don't most people use rechargeables for those?

I always kept my 360 controller plugged in with no batteries in it lol.

The Ps4 controller has them built in, and I'll probably still always keep it plugged in.

I don't mind the whole no battery pack being standard. A lot of people would rather use a USB and use the controller in wireless mode. If I want the added weight and wireless I'll buy the battery pack.

I have none of those things. I use a laptop, and don't wireless any mouse or keyboard for it, I do have a very nice 35mm Canon, but I buy batteries (Kodak Gold) when I plan to use it, my mag light takes D Cell batteries, and I don't use rechargeables in that either.
Regardless, I don't think it's that big a deal to buy a couple recharging kits.

I don't know a single person who owns a set of rechargeable AA batteries, except for a 360 controller.

Apparently so. I actually prefer them over built in battery packs. When my batteries start to hold less charge from use I can just buy new ones instead of a new controller. And I can swap them out and not have to plug the controller in and wait for it to charge. I've also found that they tend to last much longer per charge than my PS3 controller does.

lying through the keyboard I see. I can do it too.....I don't know a single person who DOESN'T have an internet connection so I don't see what the always online deal was all about.

Xbox One and PlayStation 4
Because I can buy both.

Technically if you don't want to use batteries or the rechargeable battery pack you can just plug it in and use it that way.
