you can use a USB cord, it shuts off the wireless and it turns into a full wired controller.


No it doesn't, the controller doesn't send any of the signals from the button presses down the USB cord, that's why you have to get a wired controller or a wireless adapter to use an xbox controller on the PC. It hasn't been said either way, but I don't see any way MicroSoft is going to change the policy with all the $30 charge/play kits they sell, which probably cost very little to manufacture. You never get rid of your high profit items.

That's nice dear but it's wrong.

When you plug a micro-USB cable into the controller for wired play the internal radio is shut off and all data is transmitted through the wire. In this mode the controller can be used without batteries.

Perhaps you would like that, but when I play wireless, I want to play wireless. When my controller dies, I want to swap out the battery, not be tethered down.


I don't see how this means anything at all.

You not recharging your controllers is your fault. Just like you not recharging your rechargeable batteries or not having spares

It's just a way to get people to spend more money on accessories

^ that. I had 2 ps3 controllers and swapped them out whenever I played. never had a problem with em being charged. ps4 will charge while in sleep mode, so even if I stick with 1 controller, I'll never drain the battery unless I try to game 20+ hours straight assuming they hold the same charge as the ds3.

rechargeable AA's would go to complete waste for me. once every few months for my tv remote, and once every 3 or so months for my clippers. I buy a huge pack of knockoff batteries when a walgreens sale hits, and used them for my clippers until it slows down to the point where it's too slow to shave effectively with. then I store em somewhere until the remote control dies and switch em out to get several months worth of flipping channels. it's like $5 once a year.

I'm not going to plug in my controllers every time I put them down. That's just dumb.
