What employee store?

Edit: Dumb question I know. Microsoft obviously but just working as a cashier or something at the brick and mortar store or what?

ID: hr4stcz

The Nike employee store, obviously.

Opinions on these? I have considered getting one but am not sold yet…

I use one, but on PC. It’s my favorite controller. I don’t know if it’s worth $160, but it’s definitely the best for me.

On sale on MS website rn too

Super solid controller. Extremely customizable. I got mine last week, so I cannot say how it is when it comes to durability. But if feels great to use, being able to change stick tension and sticks is great. If you have the extra money to drop on it, it’s a GOOD controller, but it’s a hefty price

They’re great until you inevitably get stick drift. And you’ll get stick drift a lot sooner with Elites than the regular controllers.

I'm on my 5th or 6th now. They tend to break pretty easily but when they work they are great. Get the extended warranty.

ID: hr3viw1

Barely used mine before the A button became extremely mushy and one of the triggers randomly doesn't accept input/thinks there's input where there isn't any. And I BABY my controllers, stored this thing in it's included case when not in use.

Highly recommend looking elsewhere or buy at a deep discount with an extended warranty.

Honestly, the sticks in the newest Xbox controllers feel better than these too.

Absolutely overpriced. Absolutely the best controller I've ever used in my life.

Mileage may vary regarding durability.

The only wear and tear on my Elite v1 (bought mid-2016) is during long play sessions the RB will press down softly rather than with a click (if you're familiar with mechanical keyboards, it's like the difference between a tactile vs clicky switch). Face buttons are still 100%, back buttons are 100%, sticks have no drift, all inputs are correct and responsive.

Others have had more severe issues though, so a 1-year or more extended replacement warranty probably would be a good idea if you want to play it safe.

They break very quickly from what I've read. And judging by my experience with the Elite 1, I believe it. Mine broke twice.

ID: hr4p35n

Had mine for about 7 months, very light usage always kept it clean and had a safe spot for it after use. It got stick drift, the A and B buttons turned into mush and stopped working, the right bumber stopped working, it basically became an unusable piece of trash in half a year. Been using a standard 360 controller that I've had for 15 years and it works flawlessly.

If you don’t mind a wired controller, look into the power A fusion controller. Half the cost and are very solid. They have four paddles on the back that can be remapped to any button on the controller.

Great controller until the right bumper decides it doesn't wanna work

7 : Anonymous2022/01/03 16:47 ID: hr3a4kt

That's sick. I would never waste money on that controller but free, fuck yeah

ID: hr3aeiy

If you play any game competitive especially fps it’s a stupidly high advantage

ID: hr3beu3

i agree tho, the relaibilty issues alone were enough to make me go to third party Razer

ID: hr43vol

I've been using an Elite v1 as my main controller for over 5 years, and at this point I'd never go back to using a controller that doesn't have back buttons as my go-to.

I don't even play anything competitive, I just love being able to use both thumbsticks while still being able to press buttons. Makes it much easier / smoother to do things like fighting without target lock in Dark Souls.

Can’t believe they don’t ship with it man

ID: hr3q8xy

Bruh, they don't even give you a rechargeable battery.

ID: hr3qf0t

Haha right? It’s nuts. PS5 went hard with their controllers, Xbox couldn’t be bothered. I still love my series X though, got a good set of recharging batteries for cheap on Amazon lol

ID: hr4iny5

If they did, they'd probably charge an extra $50 for it.

where'd you order from?

Ordered just the console, they sent me the bundle order, which includes this controller at a reduced price. However, it arrived with my console listed as free on my most recent receipt.

13 : Anonymous2022/01/03 17:31 ID: hr3h6uc

I thought about getting it, then I saw the price tag. Ooof.

Ended up getting a razor on sale for 30 from 80. It's wired (which I prefer. Fuck batteries) and I love it.

Nice and you'll never need batteries. The wireless charger is included in the case. So sweet.

Don't believe the lies,within 10 months this controller was hooped. I've never thrown a controller or abused one. No kids around to tamper with em either. The left and right bumper stopped working properly as well as the a button. My friend also has this controller with similar issues.

Hang onto that receipt- if there was any kind of mix up because holiday super busy season, you'll want documentation so the seller can't try and screw you over.

ID: hr3grkt

I did email to check, it’s all good, I get to keep it.

ID: hr3h6a6

Good! Congrats on the freebie!

ID: hr3oirn

In the US merchants are responsible for their sales. If they screw up, the customer is not responsible to make them right.

It's a really good control

They gotta start getting rid of them somehow.. I love mine but I’m on my 3rd warranty claim

20 : Anonymous2022/01/03 21:34 ID: hr4kbmg

If the problems with that controller weren't fixed then "free" is just about how much it worth.

I tried that controller and after trying three different ones, none had consistently working face buttons.

They were all new, all sealed, all from a different batch.

21 : Anonymous2022/01/03 22:43 ID: hr4uwdp

Count the days until the controller starts malfunctioning, They're notorious.

Mine doesn't get heavy use but it took less than a year for the bumpers to start double inputting, face buttons constantly dropping inputs and stick bouncing to the other direction.

Side note, both my PS5 controllers sticks are fucked up. Again not heavy use, primarily use KB&M. I take care of my shit, these new controllers are ridiculous.
