For the next gen Xbox, please do not cheap out and include batteries with the controllers.

Thanks

I'd forget about that and just go back to wired.

Thats not viable for some peoples setup. It is hard to use a wired controller with a massive 55" TV. You would have to sit pretty close.

Gaming on giant HDTVs suck. I'd go no bigger than 40".

Why not just spend a reasonably small outlay and get some rechargeable + charger? I got one with 4 batteries. Charge 2, use 2 then switch them over (I turn the charger off a lot obv). Batteries last long enough that it's not much by way of an issue.

Considerably cheaper than the play and charge kit.

Let's be honest here, it all depends on the size of the room where you're gaming. If you're in a small bedroom then even a 40" can be too much. The way I look at it if you're sitting 15' away from the tele then above 40 is preferable, to me.

I'd beg to differ.

I've yet to buy a wireless controller that didn't come with batteries...
