    Improved Xbox One controller

    |

    Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.

    Overall, this is basically just an XBOX One controller, but with some improvements. The sticks don't clack as loud as an original xbox one controller. The share button helps without having to press home + x/y every time you want to take a capture. The sticks are a bit stiff but just feel like they need to be broken in. The D-Pad is a lot more comfortable to use than the One's D-Pad. The only real issues I have is a lack of motion controls for potential improvements in aiming, like a switch pro controller or a PS4 controller. And there is still no included recharging battery or cable, so you still have to either buy a rechargeable battery or buy AA batteries. If you like the Xbox One controller, this is an objective improvement.

    If You Love Blue

    The aqua shift works just like any Xbox series X controller. There's nothing new or different in that department. But here it does set itself apart is of course the shifting blue color and the the back rubber grips. In the light the controller does look like it shifts between light blue to a little darker blue. On the edges sometimes you can see it shift to almost going to a purple blue color but not all the way. It all depends on the light and the way it hits the surface of the controller. Also has a sparkly look to it. Kinda like Vegeta's blue evolution transformation in dbs. The grips are also nice. They don't extend all the way to the back of the controller but to me that's fine. I read that the design on the grip is also unique to each aqua shift controller so no two will be exactly alike. So if you love blue and you like collecting controllers then this is a no brainer.

    Good update to an already amazing controller. This is very similar to the xbox one s controller but the D-Pad is much more responsive. There is also a nice texture on the back of the controller that gives it a great grip. This is in my opinion the best 3D controller for PC Gaming. If you play a lot of 2D games maybe you want to get an 8BITDo as well but for shooters, 3D platformers, racing etc this is the way to go NOTE: make sure you download the XBOX Accessories app on your PC and update the controller firmware, otherwise it won't work with your Windows PC

    Microsoft controllers are quality

    Weight feels good, good quality materials. They have started giving "texture" to different areas and buttons of these controllers, here's what is different from other (red) controllers: on Daystrike Camo (Fat right), there is a rough grip texture on the triggers, the L/R buttons, and underneat both grips but not on the outer side of grips (smooth). The Pulse Red (middle) has grip texture on the entire grip except topside, and on triggers, but not L/R buttons. The original Xbox One red ( far left) has grip texture on both grips (excluding tops), but smooth triggers and L/R buttons. Of course the d-pad and share buttons are new on the Series X designs. Hope this helps.

    Best Console Controller

    |
    |
    Posted .

    I purchased the Microsoft Xbox Series Wireless Controller (Shock Blue) for my nephew for Christmas so he can have an additional controller for his Xbox One S. The main thing that I he likes about it is the stippled texturing on the triggers and the back of the controller. The bumpers and triggers have a matte finish, which he says more nicer to him. There's a new share button on the center of the controller, which from what he said makes it easier to save screenshots and video clips. One press for screenshot or hold for video clip. Also, to view recent clips you can fouble press the share button to see them. My nephew is an avid gamer and has been since birth and loves playing Fortnite. He gets sweaty hands after long sessions of gaming and the grip on the controller helps. He can experience incredible intensity, precision and comfort of the Xbox Wireless Controller and also feel vibration feedback and jolts in high definition which he loves! The controller is wireless and fits perfectly on a rechargeable battery holder. The controller itself fits comfortably in his mid-sized hands and the triggers are very responsive. The main differences are the feel of the controller itself and the D-pad. It now has a lot more textured feeling, which extends to the bumpers and triggers. The bumpers used to be glossy and slippery and now they're more of a matte finish. The D-pad returns to the more "paddle" like one from the Xbox 360 but is much improved from that version and feels tight and clicky instead of wobbly. It also is very responsive with a satisfying mechanical feel and is faster and more responsive than the XB1 controller This controller has USB-C instead of Micro USB, Better texture on the handles, Grippy triggers, Built in Bluetooth, and a new D-Pad. It includes Xbox Wireless and Bluetooth technology for wireless gaming on supported consoles. Such as, Windows 10 PCs, Android phones, and tablets. Hopefully iOS support coming in the future. There is also a 15 day Xbox Game Pass included. Barring the elite controller, this is hands-down my nephew's favorite controller for any console to date. Well done, Microsoft you out done yourself with this one!

    Discolored Sticks

    Its a gret controller no better or worse than any others as far as function. The only issue is the thumb sticks discoloring, i read a review before purchasing that mentioned this and said I'd just need to wash my hands well before gaming. Well I did that and i was still met with discolored worn looking sticks in 12 days of use. When color is the reason i bought it, this is a deal breaker.

    Same as the other next generation Xbox controllers except with a bit of a color shift. It also has some textured rubber grips to enhance the hold. I bought it due to having an aftermarket skin on my Series X that is a color swap purple blue. Of course Microsoft wants to make sure they get every nickel they can from their consumer and charge extra for this controller.

    Great controller. I've always been a fan of the xbox controllers design (except for the DUKE) on the original xbox. This is more a evolution than revolution than the competition, but when it is this good you don't need to really rebuild from scratch.

    Great controller all around. A refinement of an already great Xbox One controller to be honest. The textured feel of the controller, the change to the bumpers and triggers shape and form are all welcome changes. The addition of a dedicated share butting is also a welcome enhancement. Lastly, the updated D-pad is crisp and responsive and a welcome addition. When you throw in the fact that it can work with the new Series S and Series X as well as work with older Xbox One console... you cannot go wrong with this purchase.

    Needed a new controller and this was on Sale at BestBuy. Great functionality and taking the battery cover off, it allows to be charged on the stand charger I used with my original Xbox controllers. Great feel and the texture makes it a great grip while the sticks are very responsive. Truly a good buy!

    A Nice Light Upgrade from the Xbox One Controller

    So far no issues and it works great with no drifting, pretty much plug-n-play. My second Xbox Series X controller for my pc, but in all honestly it seems like most controllers have drifting/button issues after constant use. I find myself replacing these controllers every year or so. Ergonomics of this controller is just like the old Xbox One Controller with the addition of a firm textured grip/bumpers/triggers and a more tactile responsive d-pad, albeit not the greatest for fighting games. Note - this does not come with a USB-C cable out of the box unless you get a bundle.

    Best console controller yet.

    One of the best console controllers Xbox could’ve created or recreated. The static grip on the triggers and down the palm grips are great especially for gameplay; sweaty hands won’t slip. Including the series x controller supports wireless battery charging. No more expensive double AA batteries. The original Xbox one controllers do not support self charging as the battery charger holder doesn’t fit on the originals ( ONLY SERIES X ). The Xbox controller home button is not bright.. it’s much more dim than the last Gen Xbox one controller because it’s a matte gray instead of the bright clear white Xbox symbol. The screenshot and record button is interesting; still getting used to how it works.. At first I thought it was a pause button or another menu button but a pretty guud integration. Including I sometimes accidentally keep pressing the button and screenshoting random gameplay captures. Overall a really guud controller. Personally better than ps5 controller.

    Microsoft has finally taking that if it ain't broke mentality and actually made the controller better. I have many controllers and have experience with the elite series Controllers and by far this is the best standard controller that Xbox has made. They have tightened up thumbsticks.The triggers actually seem Like they have shorter travel than previous generations. The view button is actually a necessity ring that it is cumbersome getting to the app to record in the middle of a game. Thank you for listening MS. I've added a few more features to make this controller a necessity with any shooter game.
