Xbox Series X Controller: First Impressions

Vitenskap og teknologi

If it ain't broken don't fix is a motto that Xbox is taking with the controllers as we look throughout the iterations from each console launch. Xbox looks like they have another winner again with minimal changes.

    You don’t have to use AA batteries if you don’t want as the Xbox 1 and this new controller you can get a battery pack and charger for so while you sleep the battery charges and ready to use the next day which is awesome

    The triggers aren’t nearly as curved on the new controller. For someone with larger hands I notice the difference a lot. I can’t grip the triggers much lower which allows my hands to relax a lot more. I actually prefer it to the elite series 2 for casual games.

    I still think the 2 best xbox controllers are the xbox360 wired controller and the xbox one elite controller if you prefer the xbox one ergonomics. (the xbox one elite controller is better than the other xbox one controllers is because it has a exceedingly better grip with the help of the rubber on the grips).

    The Xbox one controller is different to the Xbox one x and s, there is a small difference on how they look but the biggest difference is that the Xbox one s and x have Bluetooth allowing you to connect to your phone.

    Not sure how it not clicks when you try fighting game motions. I can do a circle or half a circle and there's a click for all of the up to 8 of the directions that are pressed. I don't think there's a better Dpad out there for those motions (though I think an arcade stick would still be better for most fighting games).

  • Ardyn Izunia
    Ardyn Izunia13 dager siden

    I honestly just think the PS5 controller is so much better than the xbox series one. The dpad is tight enough that the diagonal presses are no problem if you arent totally incompetent and the rest of the controller just feels better to me. Especially the general frame. Xbox controllers look and feel like a bulky brick now while the ps5 controller feels like an xbox 360 controller in the hand now. So it cones down to wether you want the left thumbstick to be above or below the dpad i guess and i gotta say, I've played games in which the dpad being above the stick was important for precise mid combat gameplay since i had to use the left shoulderbuttons, the stick and the dpad at the same time. So with sonys layout i can do that since the stivk is the lowest and i can easily maneuver the dpad with another finger than my thumb. With xbox that wouldn't work for me and I have yet to see a game in which the stick being above the dpad gives an actual gaming advantage. And for me the comfort of the sticks position is equal since I'm used to both, so the ps5 controller just feels like a genuine advantage that is equally comfortable as the xbox 360 controller and far more comfortable than the newer xbox controllers.

    Wait, does people wear out integrated batteries on their controller? :O Anyway, just got my Xbox Series controller, being a fan of the Xbox One one (i liked the 360 one but crappy quality aside, and useless D-Pad aside -that's a huge aside- I hated the triggers, which really made my fingers ache). So far it feels good, basically a tightened up Xbox One controller, but I'm not liking the back/trigger texture *at all*, I do find it uncomfortable. I'll probably get used to it or it will wear off slightly... Hopefully

    I feel like the complaints about the Dpad are unjustified. The Xbox 360’s dpad was loose and people complained it was too loose. The Xbox One’s Dpad was too tight and people complained. The Series X is a combo of the two and people are complaining. I don’t get it.

    I am hoping a content creator will put some pressure on Microsoft and XBOX to release the driver for windows 10. As of now it is using the generic XINPUT which lacks many functions such as impulse triggers, connecting a headset with mic and showing the correct button icons in some games. I called XBOX and they didn't even know the difference between XINPUT and an XBOX driver. I am hoping a content creator can make a video or include the fact that we will not be happy to wait years for a simple driver like we did with the XBOX ONE controller. If anyone knows someone with a contact at Microsoft or XBOX or has a visible channel please suggest making a request to XBOX/Microsoft to not screw us over again and give us all the cool features as they advertise when we buy it.
