What if MS changed those awful XB1 controllers to use a built-in rechargeable battery, like the one that is so convenient to have in my 5 year old ipod touch?

I wouldn't complain and wouldn't really care.

Got more important things to worry about than what kind of batteries a controller takes.

That's not true, or you wouldn't be on GFaqs right now...

Awful XBO controllers, eh? Hadn't heard that about them yet. Might have to try it out myself this weekend and then answer your hypothetical question.

Really!? People would prefer this? What advantage does a fixed rechargeable battery have over replaceable? I hate having to deal with "plugging in" the PS3 controllers. I'd MUCH rather be able to grab a battery pack or a couple AAs then have to make sure the controller is charged before I can untether the thing. An extra battery is way cheaper than an extra controller...

I'd rather just have a wired controller.
