This is dumb.

Edited by Blu3V3nom07

I prefer the fat ass Xbox controllers more. So this is all pretty cool.

They could have cleaned it off first, but I guess they have an obligation with that Doritos sponsership to remind people of crisps at every waking moment

Nice look!

Edited by ross2075

I guess by releasing a bunch of stuff that really isn't news it's one way to keep people talking about your product and also dumping information so people don't ask real questions.

SO MANY IMPROVEMENTS OVER 40 OMG

Edited by cyberfunk

Can't wait to buy one to play PC games.

Posted by HansKaosu

They could not afford to use a clean controller? lol

Edited by TheLegendOfMart

Only thing I like the sound of is the impulse triggers. I don't get why they are hyping the controller so hard if its just a refinement not a new design.

Posted by cyberfunk

I predict that their next video will be about the Knect

Hell yes, can't wait to use these on something better like my PC.

Looks like you wouldn't be good at marketing a product then.

"Hey Major Nelson, time to shoot an unboxing video. Here's a sealed Xbox One. Tear it open as fast as possible. The shorter, the better."

"Hey Major Nelson, time to talk in excruciatingly long detail about buttons. Take your time."

Sometimes I just don't understand Microsoft.

I would've really appreciated a little candid honesty when they brought up the d-pad. It would've been real nice (and funny) if instead saying "How did we make the d-pad even better?" Hyrb said something along the lines of "So how did we fix that lousy d-pad?".

I will say that I do enjoy seeing the genuine enthusiasm that engineers almost always show when discussing the hardware they've been slaving away on.

He looks like an Indian version of Jeff Green.

That guy got me more excited than any of the other corporate folks at MS have yet. It's sad that there must be hundreds of people just like him, enthusiastic and brilliant, and their potentially cool product gets fucked over by archaic corporate attitudes.

Is Major Nelson angry or sleepy? Either way, dude is not good on video. Stick to the tweets, Larry!

I'm currently using a PS3 controller for PC gaming. I would much prefer to be using a 360 controller but I have no wired ones and the wireless dongles have been hard to find in Canada.

Anyone have any details regarding how/if the new XBox One controllers are going to work with the PC?

Posted by stringbacon

Wait, this thing uses transparent aluminium (5:20)? Does Scotty work for Microsoft now?

They say in the video that when you plug a Micro USB cable in the wireless transmitter shuts off and it acts as a wired controller.

Maybe he'll get his due when MS makes heaps of dough from PC players buying new controllers :)

They should just dump all their PR and marketing guys in the toilet and do a crazy "The Engineers of XBox One" campaign.

Posted by ProfessorEss

@thelegendofmart: That is a much better situation for sure, but I'm more curious if there will be an easy way of using it wirelessly - or if the additional wireless dongle will be made more available in more regions.

Posted by PhantomV48

It's not just a button, you guys. It's got TRANSPARENT ALUMINUM HOLY FUCK, MICROSOFT GOT THAT STARFLEET SHIT.

It uses Wifi Direct protocol, it will probably require a dongle of some sort.

Yeah I was surprised, he was a lot easier to listen to than that other guy.

Also probably getting one of these for use on my PC.

Posted by eXists

You can say what you want about MS but their controller is the best by far, can't wait to use the new one!

Posted by PaulKemp

This was nice! For both xbox and pc. Cant wait to get rid of the old d-pad.

Edited by SomeJerk

105 people worked on designing that controller, and Alam said that MS spent hundreds of millions improving it in an interview. I want to see how few people worked on the DS4 and how little they spent on it.

I'm excited to try out (and no doubt buy it for the sake of) the trigger-rumble but dear lord that is an ugly ass joypad seemingly designed for 99% function and 1% form.

Much like their desperate PR, shill-farming, astro-turfing.

(in before social marketing company employees)

Have a bunch of N4G commenters come to GB or what? Thats the vibe I'm getting when reading the comments in a lot of articles lately

I was thinking the exact same thing, lol.

This is pathetic they have to keep the hype going this strong. Microsoft is desperate putting a guy who sounds like he got kicked in the balls with that high high "oh heyyyyy gurrrllll" of Major Nelson plugging the Xbone.

edit: and the Indian guy.. thanks Microsoft for reminding us nobody in America is making or developing this thing. It's just a "thing" to keep entitled brats from wetting the bed at night.

What the fuck is wrong with you?

I would say that is completely understandable, but with the actual mindset their target audience for this is, it would be like committing suicide. A mature, upstanding community could tolerate and appreciate candid honesty, but the state of the general community - well, can't.

transparent aluminium - does Microsoft think we're dumb or are they living on Planet Star Trek with an intention to save the whales?

Posted by MikeJFlick

It's not the Xbox one, It's the Xbone.

Edited by isomeri

@stringbacon: @phantomv48: @manicmyna: Transpalent aluminum probably refers to the same technology that Koenigsegg use in the dashboards of their cars. Meaning aluminum milled so precisely that light can pass through the metal.

Posted by SilentBob251

Wow, this comment section is unusually negative and nasty right now. I expect better from the GB community.

TRANSPARENT ALUMINIUM MOTHERFUCKER!

Seriously though this video feels like watching the home shopping network.

Edited by SuperUltra

I'm glad it has a detachable USB cable so it can be wired and wireless depending on the situation.

Wow, I was thinking the same thing. It's sad that I thought I was reading a reddit thread for a minute there. Sad to see the GB community jump on the MS negativity bandwagon.

I assume they think we're dumb.

I also assume this is based on thorough video game community research.

Posted by Hunter5024

This controller is looking pretty good. Honestly I kind of like them going this in depth on it, the controller is super important.

@nadafinga: Came here to also make the Jeff Green comparison.

Also, they skipped over the most important question: Is this PC compatible?!

Modding seems like it's not gonna be as easy to take apart and put back together. Unless it all clips back together?

Is it not Aluminium Oxynitride?

Cos' that's transparent aluminium.
