You need more than average dosh to by it by the looks though ! $149.
Course using the rate of exchange that should be £99, but I bet it aint. (And TBH, even if it is.. fuck that for a game of soldiers)

My spare XB1 controller was £60 a month after the XB1 released (ok it had a rechargable battery thingy inc), people will buy it. It depends on how well its made, if those paddles start coming loose its going to get panned. I've had one XB1 controller fail and the replacement the left hand stick is starting to go, it doesnt centre properly. I'd want a £100+ controller last more than a year.

I'd like to remind everyone that I said that MS should do this way back when they first announced the X1. Having said that, I'm a bit disappointed at the pricing. I can see why they've priced it the way they have - Scuf is their only competition and Scuf are doing everything manually to pre-existing controllers. MS can produce the controllers in bulk for much cheaper, but all they really need to do is offer better value than Scuf.

Sadly they've went down the route of this being a luxury, "elite" item and added a load of bollocks to justify the price. Who the fuck actually wants a carrying case for a single controller? How many people actually want 6 thumbsticks? If they make a mid-range version which is just a controller with paddles then I might be interested, but fuck buying a control for the price of 2 or 3 games.

I'm very disappointed with the pricing but they'll hopefully come down in time. I would pay about £70-80 for one of these if they're good - no way £130 though.
