eightbit Posted December 25, 2020 Share Posted December 25, 2020 But I *love* the fact that the controller included with the S/X still takes AA batteries. Why? Well because it adds a lot of life to the controller. Since they take AA batteries they can potentially last forever (provided they do not get damaged) as the batteries are replaceable. The internal rechargeable batteries in the Playstation controllers may be replaceable by dismantling the thing when they die down the road and sourcing a compatible battery, but what a pain in the ass. And you know one day those batteries will be hard to source as well. The fact that these Xbox controllers take standard easily replaceable batteries is a real selling point to me. But it seems it is not to so many others. I see reviews that are like "oh, it still takes batteries" and so on. I see it as forward thinking. These controllers are going to be ok for decades due to the use of removable and replaceable batteries....just like my Gamecube Wavebird. And, if you are dead set on a rechargeable function they sell packs for that as well. I say it is a win all around. I suspect in the future for this reason alone finding functioning Xbox controllers will be a whole lot easier than Sony's stuff. 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
