So I bought a wired 360 controller for sum PC gamin' (Microsoft brand) and it seems the bumpers are little more than flimsy pieces of plastic that "click" more than they depress, as the bumpers on my much older and much less-wired 360 controllers do. Has anyone else observed this? It makes a really, really loud clicking noise and just feels terrible overall, like the cheapest of mouse buttons. I can't imagine why this would be a thing on wired controllers and not wireless ones but here we are...

I have both a wired and wireless controller, and they both feel exactly the same.

I'd like to keep my data intraplanetary please. I'm sure the moon has far better QA than we do down here.

But really, that's messed up!

Can anyone recommend a good wireless dongle? (Yes, they feel THAT BAD)

@killacam:

You do realize that I have to buy all my gaming products from Earth, right? That if Microsoft could ship to the Moon, I wouldn't have to keep this Shield up preventing them from knowing of my existence?

I picked up a few of my wireless xbox controllers and my wired xbox controller and the bumpers feel the same. Perhaps you wore out the bumper on the wireless controller and so they have lost their click over time?

I dunnnoo man.. My friend's much newer controllers always felt rock solid. It just looks and feels like totally different construction. I am going to make pressing these bumpers my full time job from here on out. I'll report back in 4 weeks with an update. Charts with before and after click volume (dB) and resistance (pounds per square inch) will be presented.

The bumpers on the wired ones seem to wear out quicker than the wireless ones. I used to use wired exclusively, and there's a definite difference.

All of my 360 controllers both wired and wireless have messed up right bumpers, even out of the box.
