  • I suspect that should be a £ sign in the write-up and not a $ ☺
  • Yeah. What you get for having an American writing about the Queen's currency ;-)
  • He really should have rounded it to the nearest pound too considering it's only 17p short of £22.
  • I wish it was a little cheaper. I guess I'll get it down the road. Plus I'd have to buy some AAA batteries for the controller. So like almost 30 for the whole thing. I'll wait some sale :P
  • Pick up a play and charge kit. When you're not using the controller just plug in the battery pack to your PC/XB1. That's what I do. Didn't get the official one, picked up a third-party two pack for like £10. I know it also makes it more money to spend but it's worth it in the long run over buying batteries all the time :D
  • I found that a long USB cable works out for when I'm charging the rechargable batteries for the controller. Either way is a temp wired solution but it's cheaper than a play and charge kit.
  • I keep intending to pick up one of those third party packs, seem like good value and the ones I'd used on the Xbox 360 fit pretty well into the controller. I just picked up a pack of 32 batteries on sale, but I'm sure I'll burn through those quickly over the Christmas period with the amount of 3am Halo sessions I've been putting in lately
  • I picked up 2 packs of hipstreet's usbcell on a deal site around xb1's release 2 packs for the price of 1
  • Yea, classic. They really think they can price it at half the cost of a Steam controller and people will fall for it? And still we can't update the firmware on a PC? Not very impressive...
  • I'm confused - I'm in the UK and have had this for a couple of weeks now. Only cost me £15 as well. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I'm also confused. I'm guessing you got the game misprice for £15 same as me and I've had it at least a month now.
  • Yeah that's the one! Lookslike we got a bargain - has it really been a month already? Damn, I only started using mine a few days ago lol Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I got the Game misprice as well. That aside, it's been out weeks so I'm just a little confused by the pre-order part.
  • Yeah, same - I pre-ordered it agessss ago from, had it a while now but only just started using it. Don't understand pre-order nov 20 release thing at all. Weird. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • That sounds like the NA revised release date
  • This should be built into all Microsoft tablets, phones, and laptops.
  • $25=£21?! WTH!
  • $25 +20% = $30 ~= £19.75 So yeah, not to far off and seeing as you can get them for £19.99 at Game... Well, you can't really complain.
  • If this will allow me to use an XBOX controller on emulators as well, I'd get one in a heartbeat.
  • It does allow for use on emulators.
  • Its £19.99 on game website but out of stock online its been available since 27th October
  • Also sub £20 on ShopTo's website, where it has been for a few weeks.    
  • Saw this and thought Microsoft were releasing an Xbox stick
  • It does look pretty big in the picture - Almost like it's the size of a Roku/Amazon stick.
  • Well this is a 1st of its kind seeing as white-fi isn't in production phase yet
