That's cool. Reminds me I have a set of 'battle cars' that I've been keeping around. I believe they came from a dollar store back from when TMX came out and car combat was having it's time in the sun. They have lame rubber guns on them and awful paint jobs. I always wanted to get real looking stuff from war planes or something and do some scale model work.

Bought one of those fancy X-box Elite controllers. Actually pretty damn impressive. Mouse and Keyboard are still superior. But the little back paddles are awesome for games that constantly force you to let go of the right analog stick to do basic shit like jumping.

I also like the little modular pieces all attach magnetically, it doesn't have a built in proprietary battery, and the build quality feels pretty solid. Good to see a high end gaming peripheral that isn't a scam.

It'd be nice if they made a high end mouse and keyboard like this. But all the expensive shit in that category is just trumped up crap with a bunch of buzzwords thrown in. When it's really just the same plastic shit with a different coat of paint for the most part.

I mean a 10 button mouse sounds good in theory but if your macro is that shitty all the buttons in the world aren't going to save your ass.

I'd just like a mouse and keyboard with steel construction and high grade parts that aren't just "cherry keys". Something I can invest in and never have to worry about replacing.

I bought a twenty five dollar joypad made for pc and the sticks were garbage. All the fine tuning in the world couldn't get that dead zone any smaller.

Forgot the name of the company and the pad in general but it was pure garbage. If it isn't  Logitech, Microsoft or sorta Sony usually they blow pretty bad when it comes to pc gaming.

Logitech is weird. I bought a $40 mouse from them that barely lived for a month. But the keyboard I'm using right now is from a $20 wireless KB/Mouse combo and I've abused the fuck out of it, but it still works perfectly after 6 years.

Made the plunge and bought a Razor brand mouse awhile back. It's nice and does the job. But it's just a regular old mouse. Anyone who buys this shit thinking it'll give them a competitive edge is a dumbass. I just want something that'll work. It's fulfilled that need at least. The cheapo Logitech would work just as well if it had thumb buttons.

I use to rock some UT with my 10 dollar laser mouse. Those competitive mouses are just money grabs like you said.

I'd like a new keyboard though, my cheapo died. It lasted 4-5 some odd years of abuse though. 2012 is when I got it so I got my five dollars worth.

Yeah the "gamer grade" shit is 99% crap that costs twice as much. Though if it means getting at the very least a durable product I'll take it. A Logitech can last forever but if you get a bad one it ends up costing you the same as the overpriced shit.



Pulled this off on the shitty $20 keyboard/mouse combo pack.

Steel series is what that shitty controller is called.  They claim its made for gamers and comfortable. It's none of these.

I honestly didn't buy it because of the buzz words, I bought it because it was the only pc controller I could find at the time.

That is why I just buy Microsoft controllers now. Razor makes a controller with rear paddles but I heard a couple people saying the analog sticks are cheap. Fuck that. If it's more than $40 at the very least the analog sticks should be decent.

I was going to buy an Xbox One Elite controller back when they first came out but decided to wait until after christmas or the first of the year. Little did I know they would become such a hot item that couldn't be found anywhere (though part of me suspects MS is just holding back releasing them to make them seem like way more of a hardcore item) but either way everyone raves about them and since I can use it with Xbox One and PC games as well I think I may buy one soon.

The rear paddles are the best feature. I could see them being a straight up advantage on games like Halo since you could jump without letting go of the right stick. It'll give you an advantage in any game that makes you let go of the right stick for ABXY. Plus no more reliance on L3 and R3.

The hair triggers are a nice touch along with the adjustable sticks. But they aren't going to give you any real advantage. It's just a nice little luxury. Makes it more comfortable to use depending on your preferences.

The Dpad and Analog sticks however are a real step up. It's not so much the adjustability than it is the better build quality. I can play a fighting game with the D Pad and not get accidental diagonal presses. The deadzone on the analog sticks have a smoother transition. It's not a replacement for being good at a game. But it does reduce input errors.

It's also nice that it stores 2 potential settings. The one downside is that the paddles can only be mapped to buttons already on the controller. So even connected to a PC you can't rebind them to get 4 extra buttons. They just work as duplicate buttons.

My first thought on the back paddles was oh man I hope I can use those as extra buttons on PC games but yeah I heard a while back that wasn't possible so I was a little bummed about that as that alone would have made this a must buy controller.

The only thing I worry about is how long this thing will hold up. Not that I necessarily break or completely wear down my controllers but I typically buy a new Xbox One controller every 6-9 months because I like having a fresh responsive controller so if I get hooked on the Elite that is going to be expensive buying another one later on down the line even if the thing lasts longer than a standard controller.

Can you just put in a standard Xbox One play and charge battery pack into this thing or how does the battery thing work?

I'm curious to try out the different sticks. Some people swear by the ones that are slightly more raised than the normal sticks.

Well amazon says they will have some more in stock next week finally so SOLD!
