Yes, I know my Xbox controller needs new batteries

You don't need to remind me by flashing the green icon every 20 damn seconds.

I hate that the alert that my controller is dying makes it die faster.

Don't they know that most people are too lazy to change it right away? And that it lasts like 5 hours after it starts flashing?

I always imagine it as a slow lament, like it's letting you know that it's on the way out and the time you shared together was memorable, but it just can't hold on any longer.

1 or 2 hours would be fine, or y'know, let US set how early we want the warning. I normally have a spare set of charged AAs around so I'd only need 20 minutes or so and be fine.

Yea, I have no problem with a low battery warning, but it should come at 10-15%, not what seems like 49% with the 360 controller. I'm convinced they made some kind of sweetheart deal with Duracell and Energizer. I'll admit that I've prematurely changed the batteries in my controller more than once just b/c I got sick of looking at that flashing ring.

I'm paying more attention to the game than the controller.

Solution: Look at your screen instead of your controller.
