Will be interesting to see how it compares to the new (released next month) Scuf Prestige pad.
Just pre ordered the elite v2...excite!
I'm still using Xbox 360 controllers, hands down the best controllers ever made. Everything in the right place, comfortable and functional.
sadly the internet seems flooded with bogus 'official' wired 360 pads
my old one broke, bought a cheap 'official' one from ebay and theres no way its a genuine pad, the sticks have no fine control, trying to pick a master lock on fallout 4 was nigh on impossible as you just couldnt make the tiny adjustments I could do with my old pad, plus it has 1 really sharp seam where it doesnt quite fit togther perfectly
I may just bite the bullet and buy an xbox one pad from a proper shop
Nay lad. The D-pad is a load of tripe. I urge anyone on a 360 pad to try out an Xbone controller. It's better in every way, especially the second revision models that you get today with the improved bumper buttons.
I use a PS4 controller connected via USB without any additional software, granted i only use it on two games at the moment.
I'm really tempted by it.
But wow, that price! :O
Need to get cracking on Microsoft Rewards.
So what does one need to get the Xbox one S wireless controller to work on the PC ? A Bluetooth dongle or the wireless adapter for windows 10. What is better and why ?
On the new controllers, you only need Bluetooth.
The dongle was for the old ones, which used a proprietary wireless connection.
D-pad has always been the weakness on the otherwise excellent 360 controller. Was pleased that the Xbone controllers sorted that aspect. They're not cheap, though.
Sorry to jump in but how do you get Bluetooth on the pc, is it a usb usb s or something?
I hope Microsoft have invested in R&D to fix the stick drift problems that have plagued every iteration of their controllers so far.
I have experienced it with four Xbox pads so far and yet have had zero problems with four PS pads.
It's a major bane as it makes the pad unusable.
You can buy a cheapo USB dongle for a couple of quid.
Razer wolverine tournament is best pad I have used. I play a lot on pad.
Pick them up for around £80 -£100
Massive upgrade over standard pads, sticks are much more accurate, and having extra buttons on back and top means no more having to use xyab. The focus programmable button that drops sensitivity is great.
The build quality is great on these.
Who games on the dpad? It's a quick tap for something in a game which isn't at the forefront.
I purchased an MSI GC30 recently and found it to be OK, although I've not used any other pad so can't really compare.
I use a Xbox One wireless pad for my PC, though really tempted by the Elite V2... but can't justify that price at the moment.
£149 is a heavy price isn't? I looked at it, thought, nice looking controller, how much !!! lol
Yeh, I have a friend who has the first version of the elite, and it was lovely to use. Far better than I expected. So that's only reason this is tempting to me. But that price tag is too much. Maybe if there is a sale... One day ..
