Too little too late. Anyone that's serious about using controllers on PC is already using Dualshock 4 (or even 3) on PC instead of fidgeting with batteries for xbox controllers.

I love the accessible batteries. I use eneloops in my wireless 360 controller and Xbox One controller. Having a '4-6 hour then needs a recharge' internal battery is a pain in the butt. It causes me to keep my PS4 and Wii U controller plugged in with a USB since the wireless is so short lived it's not worth messing with.

It's fine with me. I have a rock candy 360 clone wired controller sticking out of my PC's USB right now.

Still cannot believe those people are intelligent enough to post on the internet either.

Sounds like your understanding of the meaning of the word "intelligence" is a bit faulty then. People do not disagree with you or hold opinions you find distasteful because they lack intelligence.

MS Points also provided an identical international exchange medium and were hard to tax beyond the initial local sales tax.

The last $40 or so worth of points I spent were from Bing search rewards anyway.

From wikipedia:

Tosspot is a Britishslang insult, which can mean, depending on the context, a drunkard, a masturbator, or an objectionable person.

The word is of Middle English origin, and, until recently, meant exclusively a person who drank heavily. Beer or ale was customarily served in ceramic pots, so a tosspot was a person who copiously 'tossed back' such pots of beer.

If it's any consolation, this is a less powerful "gaming news" storm than some others I could name. Denis Dyack tried to shout down GAF, sued Epic games for letting him use their engine, and cheaped out on Activision and Marvel throwing him some license work, which didn't end well for him.

And as much as I dislike him now, Phil Fish has never haunted an alt group that was created to mock his antics FOR A DECADE or punched out a coke machine. I'm not going to say the devil's name though, lest he come or a visit.

Beer for all his lameness is essentially doing a version of Jim Sterling's Jimquisition with his Annoyed Gamer show only he has fewer visual aids and he tends to set his show up as answering questions from viewer mail. And like it or not, there is a market for personality driven, sarcastic "real talk" pot stirring and smack talk in the games press. Judging by what's happened to the likes of STFU&Play, Angry Joe, Darksyde Phil's VLOGs, Yahtzee Croshaw, and Spoony it might well be shrinking, but it is still there.

"We all handle criticism, especially the vitriolic kind, differently."

This simply does not cover or begin to cover what happened. Marcus was rude and Fish was...welll..insane. His blow up was repulsive, creepily narcissistic, out of control, ridiculous, and frankly more akin to someone threatening to rape your wife or mocking your dead father than what Marcus did. And it is not new for Fish. He once tweeted that someone should suck his dick and choke on it because the person said he had not published a game yet and FIsh had won an award for his unreleased game. Fish is just a trainwreck.

I simply cannot tolerate the kind of muck than Fish in his ire thought he was magically entitled to spew. I am glad that he canceled his second game. I uninstalled Fez, which I never played, from Steam today and wish I could give it back somehow. I dislike Marcus (and Jim Sterling) as cheap muck raking shock-jock wanna be's, but Fish was so appalling and alienating that I hope he gets help and stays out of the news. I never want to see or hear from him again. I have NEVER felt less respect for anyone in the gaming industry than I did for Fish after his sad and insipid tirade. That's not on me or Marcus Beer or the faceless gradient of the internet. That's on Fish.
