Where the fuck do I preorder this $300 4k bluray player?

EDIT: Here is the $299 One. GO GO GO. You don't have to pay until release, so might as well.

u/slingdub · 101 pointsr/xboxone

hey you dont need a kinect but its awesome.

here is the xbox italian guy on roof edition.

its 350 but doesn't have a kinect and comes with 2 assassins creed games.

there is no bioshock (the underwater game yet out on xbox.) try castle of wolfenstein he might like that.

batman isnt out till june.

if he likes red dead redemption (cowboy assassin) get him grand theft auto five.

what other games does he like maybe i can point you in the right direction? does he like racing if so pick up forza horizon 2. its amazing.

does he have friends already with xboxes?

edit 1

too play with friends online he will need xbox live gold subscription. but he prolly already has one on 360. Dragon age inquisition is the best rpg, but there is a free one called neverwinter releasing at the end of the month.

edit 2

shawdow of mordor is also like assassin creed but it is Lord of the rings. so if he like lords of the rings pick this up its very good.

edit 3

take the xbox out and install all the updates for him, that way he can play it right away. depending on the speed of your internet it can take a day to install a digital game, like the assassins creed that comes with the bundle. come back here and I will walk you through it.

u/Charwinger21 · 78 pointsr/gaming

You think that's bad?

Amazon still has Day One edition Xbox One consoles available for sale in the U.S..

Those were supposed to be sold out on "day one".

We are coming up on the end of "year one".

u/Carmany · 54 pointsr/ExpectationVsReality

I will tell you why people think that, it is because it is true. For example, right off their website Microsoft Xbox One S 500GB- Halo Bundle, this can be yours for 65 weekly payments of 19.99 for a grand total of $1,299. Or you can buy the thing from Amazon for $300.

u/thebuggalo · 47 pointsr/xboxone

The Media Remote has been a GREAT accessory for me. Not having to turn on my controller when I just want to navigate Netflix is wonderful. The remote itself looks nice and feels great in the hand.

It can even control DVR functions now so it can just about replace my cable remote. I think it's one of the best purchases I've made for the Xbox One, as I use it every day and am always glad I have it.

EDIT: By DVR Functions, I meant FF, RW and Play/Pause.

u/-CdG-Luck · 40 pointsr/Gamingcirclejerk

If you're going to jerk about consoles, at least get your fucking information right.

Consoles are NOT $400 anymore. At most, $350 for a new one. PS4 $349 [Xbox One S $299]( Wii U $299

5 games will cost $300 if you don't have GCU or Amazon Prime and buy new releases, shit. I could pre-order 5 games now on Amazon and it'll be less than $250.

What the fuck kind of accessories are you buying that'll equal $100 - 200? I bought a fucking stand and another controller and a usb extension cable. Under $100. Double digits motherfucker.

Yep. Uh huh. 1 year is totally $150.

u/mitico303 · 36 pointsr/xboxone

I have this one and i love it.

u/OutlawedTorn · 26 pointsr/xboxone

I recommend buying the $15 Legacy adapter and buy used Xbox 360 instruments separately. That should be cheaper than buying the Rock Band 4 bundle.

u/JaroSage · 24 pointsr/GameDeals

I guess this might be news to some people, but this is the same price you get at literally any large retailer that sells this bundle.





Every store advertises it as a $50 savings, but the bundle has been sold for $350 since the day it was introduced last november.

u/ejgbarlongo · 24 pointsr/PS4

Cheaper? They both cost around $250.



In fact, the PS4 is actually $5 cheaper than the Xbox One.

> So why buy a XBox if you can play the exact same games on the cheaper Playstation 4?


u/AlfredosSauce · 22 pointsr/Games

Not sure to be honest. When I looked at it a while ago, I figured the steam controller would be worse for me 'cause of it's layout. And I don't know anyone who has one to give it a try before buying. I have been thinking about getting the Xbone elite controller because it's so adjustable. Though it's crazy expensive for a controller.

u/Watchmaker-2112 · 22 pointsr/xboxone

You can still get this one. I’ve had it for years and it’s great.

u/The_Slovo · 21 pointsr/PS4

I was planning on grabbing a 4K tv and a ps4+ (that's what I was calling it in my head) in around 6 months to a year; I have already been buying UHD movies since they come with copies of the regular blurays right now, to smooth over the transition. So, it IS a huge bummer to me that there is no UHD drive.

I won't be giving up on my PS4 by any means, but it strongly incentivizes me to wait to see how powerful the Scorpio is, and make my decision then. I understand it could have been to lower costs, but right now the Xbox 1s has a UHD player, and is cheaper than standalone 4K bluray players.

EDIT: I also want to add that I live in the country, and my internet speeds are not high or reliable enough to count 4K streaming as a possibility.

u/CalciumBicarbonate · 18 pointsr/pcmasterrace

>Wired play on PC

>Wired or wireless play on Xbox One

No wireless receiver? Fuck that.

For what it's worth, Amazon is selling this "For Windows" pack for $5 less than just the controller.

u/thatwontdopig · 14 pointsr/simracing

|What games/sims are the most life like?

  • iracing
  • rfactor 2
  • assetto corsa
  • game stock car 2013/extreme

    All of the above games are more or less the most popular games with the best physics. They all have their up and downsides. They are all miles ahead of any codemasters f1 game or forza. They also all offer the ability to drive open-wheel cars, although some games require mods or dlc to do so.

    | What wheels are the best?

    If you want a good xbox one compatible wheel then you're basically looking at the Thrustmaster TX. It has a really good belt driven system and has a detachable rim. The downside is you need to buy a separate set of pedals and shifter if you want to drive manual. If you want something less expensive, the best bang for your buck IMO is the Logitech G27, but it is PC/PS3 only.

    |How much cost is associated with sim racing?

    Well essentially you need a wheel and a game. A good wheel will set you back anywhere between $200-$700, and most games are between $20-$60.

    If you want participate in competitive online racing, you are basically going to have to go with iracing. They have by far the best multiplayer. However, you have to pay a subscription fee and must buy most of the tracks/cars separately. This is where cost can get out of hand.

    I have a lot of fun with a pretty basic setup, however the sky is the limit as far as spending goes. But no matter how much you do end up spending, it will be a fraction of the cost of a trackday weekend.
u/TornadoCreator · 14 pointsr/truegaming

It is unfortunate that so many games now have such complex controls that it invariably ends up less accessible to people like us with mobility based disabilities.

One thing I would recommend, though it won't help with the games you've listed here as they're PS4 (or at least console) exclusives. Consider moving to PC gaming. I personally prefer console gaming, with PS4 being my system of choice, but the ability to change key-binding with PC makes it much more accessible. I'd also highly recommend this controller.

UK -


The added flexibility this controller gives should improve your gameplay experiences.

u/mandlar · 14 pointsr/xboxone

Here's the direct link since OP didn't include it in his post:

u/TerminalSarcasm · 14 pointsr/Rockband

$300? There is a used one on Amazon for $800.

Honestly, it's fucking sick, because that's just preventing people who want to start/keep playing - and buying DLC to support continuation - from actually doing so. I feel like not only is the lack of hardware slowly killing the game, but we're also part of the problem by screwing over the community. I'd likely pick up an X1 and get rolling if it weren't for the PDP wired debacle.

That being said, dude gets nearly $1k for a $10 item, more power to 'em, I guess.

u/IPokeNinjas · 13 pointsr/KotakuInAction

PCG: Mac is the best gaming PC

"If you tweak the settings you could maybe possibly probably get 20-30fps"

For $465, 35% more expensive than an xbox which actually gets 30fps.

u/zerocool94 · 13 pointsr/xboxone

I'd highly recommend the nyko charging dock. It comes with a dock and 2 recharge packs (one for each controller). I've been using it for several months now and get plenty of battery life on both batteries.

Edit: link

u/ShtsGonaSplode · 12 pointsr/AndroidTV

I buy Sony TV's because I prefer the picture quality over the competition. Yesterday I ordered a Sony 65" X900F knowing full well that the Android TV experience is going to be complete garbage, just like it has been on my Sony 55" X850D.

As someone else mentioned, you can update the OS with a USB drive. But even with the latest Android OS my X850D still has a bloat-filled, laggy interface. Using ADB commands to clean it up has helped but it still lags.

I gave up on the Android TV experience over a year ago. My solution is to plug in an Xbox One X and use it with (THIS) remote. The combo of the Xbox and that remote makes the Xbox a fabulous media center. The Xbox houses all of my streaming apps (Hulu Live, HBO, Netflix, Amazon prime Video etc.) and has a very snappy/intuitive interface. And with the Xbox setup using HDMI ARC for TV and my surround sound, powering the Xbox on with the remote turns the TV/surround sound on and gives me full audio control over the surround sound. Turning the Xbox off with one click shuts everything else down as well.

With the above setup I haven't even seen the Android TV experience in over a year and honestly forget it's there.

With that said, you can accomplish essentially the same thing with the nVidia Shield, if you prefer that over Xbox. Just keep in mind that there is no Hulu Live app for Android TV, so if you use that for your live TV streaming (like I do), the nVidia Shield won't be a good solution for you.

u/HoochCow · 11 pointsr/EliteDangerous

I had a similiar issue, my old stick was naturally a little loose and hyper sensitive, so just resting my hand on it caused it to input roll because it was loose enough that the idle weight of my tiny little hands was moving it. This resulted in having to make the deadzones WAY bigger than I wanted them to be.

If you're in the market for a new controller heres some options from least to most expensive as well as amazon links for buying them.

Xbox 360 Pad: $28

  • Pros: CHEAP, works, comfortable
  • Cons: Not enough buttons
  • I own one and have played Elite with it

    Steam Controller: $50

  • Pros: Cheapish, works, comfortable, plenty of buttons, overly customizable software options to ensure it just works with everything!
  • Cons: Touchpad in place of traditional D-Pad/Right Joystick can be janky in some games and some people just downright don't like this.
  • I own one and have played Elite with it.

    T-Flight HOTAS X: $50

  • Pros: Cheap, well made, works with PS4 if you're a PS4 commander
  • Cons: No mini analog stick.

    Xbox One Controller + Wireless PC Adapter: $63

  • Pros: Upgrade to the 360 version
  • Cons: Wireless, so batteries.

    Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS HOTAS: $108

  • Pros: Cheap for a HOTAS, well made, mini analog stick on throttle.
  • Cons: Mini Analog stick is in a weird place (subjective)
  • I do not own this, but I would buy it if I needed another HOTAS

    Xbox One Elite Controller: $140

  • Pros: upgrade over the standard xbone controller
  • Cons: paddles can't be mapped to unique button presses but instead just can be set to emulate other buttons on the controller

    X-52: $150

  • Pros: Looks like the joystick and throttle in Elite.
  • Cons: No ministick on throttle.

    Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS: $449

  • Pros: All Metal Construction, very solid piece of hardware
  • Cons: No Ministick on throttle, No Twist Yaw on the stick, HOLY SHIT BALLS EXPENSIVE, your husband/wife might be angry with you for buying this if they aren't into this kinda thing.


    Okay with the all in one box stuff out of the way there are some good mix and match options from CH Products which I'll list below. My current set up is CH Fighterstick, CH Pro Throttle, CH Pro Pedals, + HTC Vive for headtracking (or ED Tracker for headtracking when I don't want VR)

    CH Flightstick: $75

  • Pros: Solid Build Quality, Ambidextrous
  • Cons: Ugly, not a lot of buttons, no twist yaw

    CH Combatstick: $94

  • Pros: Solid Build Quality, thumb button.
  • Cons: Ugly, no twist yaw

    CH Fighterstick: $116

  • Pros: Solid Build Quality, 4-way Hat thumb switch
  • Cons: Ugly, No twist Yaw
  • I own this and this is my primary stick for Elite

    CH Flight Sim Yoke: $120

  • Pros: Can double as a driving wheel!
  • Cons: No triggers, not a lot of buttons, some players have reported yokes don't work well for twitchy flight gameplay like combat.

    CH Pro Pedals: $121

  • Pros: Solid Build Quality, Very Responsive, doubles as gas & brake pedals for driving games!
  • Cons: Pedals are a bit close together, some male players have reported this is uncomfortable, the springs that recenter the pedals are really strong and take getting used to.
  • I own this and it is my primary yaw pedals.

    CH Pro Throttle: $123

  • Pros: Solid Build Quality, very responsive throttle, mini analog stick,
  • Cons: Throttles Physical Range is a bit short, no center indent or tension control, Kinda ugly, mini stick might require high deadzones.
  • I own this and it is my primary throttle

    CH Eclipse Yoke: $201

  • Pros: Good for Flying & Driving, plenty of buttons, and flappy paddles for yaw or gear shifting
  • Cons: No triggers, might not be ideal for combat.
  • I want one.

    Also note that the joysticks and throttles from the Thrustmaster FCS and Warthog can be bought separately making them worth considering as options here.

    FINALLY I will leave you with a word of warning. The Saitek X-55 and X-56 might look tempting, but they have shoddy build quality and will break on you. I used to have an X-55, and I've seen the inside of the X-56 and they both have the same problems. They are a time bomb, do not buy them. Also someone will more than likely eventually comment saying they own one of these devices and have had zero issues out of them, lucky them I hope they never have an issue, but Saitek is known for terrible Quality Control and with the exception of the X-52 buying a Saitek product is not worth the gamble even though Logitech now owns them and is known for great build quality, there are too many items from when Mad Catz owned them floating around in the wild.
u/rebeljean · 11 pointsr/xboxone
  • Far Cry 1
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer + Chaos Bleeds
  • LEGO Harry Potter
  • Wolfenstein (2009)
  • The Simpsons Game + Hit & Run
  • Guitar Hero & Rock Band (I know they say it's impossible but I think it's bullshit considering there are adapters out already. I think one of the reasons those games are not as popular now is because people don't want to spend $$$ on instruments when they already have them)
  • Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2 (I know they were only on PS2 but it would be nice since the new one is coming out soon and it's getting an Xbox version)
  • Tomb Raider: Legend & Anniversary
  • Saints Row 1 & 2
  • F.E.A.R.
  • Ultimate Spider-Man

u/SakuraSiri · 11 pointsr/PleX

Anything with Plex Home Theater on it, that way you can direct play pretty much everything ever.

I built that machine on Christmas and I am using a Flirc USB IR receiver with an Xbox One Media Remote

I set a task in windows to start PHT as soon as my machine boots and I am ready to go. My machine is a bit overkill for being a dedicated PHT machine, but I can always drop a GPU in it and play games etc. (I also have a wireless 360 controller receiver connected)

u/xionone · 10 pointsr/xboxone

If that's your only issue, you should probably buy a Play and Charge Kit.

u/DeltaSixBravo · 10 pointsr/halo

I haven't watched the documentary yet, but I was already hyped up enough to buy an Xbox One just for the MCC. Amazon has a bundle for $349 that comes with Assassin's Creed: Black Flag and Unity (digital pre-order). If you get an Amazon Store Card, they'll also give you a $40 gift card. I ended up getting the console, the two AC games, and the MCC for $375. Helluva deal, in my opinion (if you like AC, too).

u/insomniac20k · 10 pointsr/xboxone

Buy the PDP Talon one. Less than half the price and works just as well if not better.

u/K5cents · 9 pointsr/battlestations

EDIT: Sorry, I just copied some links for this guy in a haste. Didn't realise he just wanted to ask some dumbass questions to paint me as a liar. There is a link for an Xbox directly from Amazon with a game too for only $2 more.

u/Phatferd · 9 pointsr/PS4

I don't own one so I can only speak from what I've read on the XB1 subreddit and reviews on sites like Amazon

u/AltF4Uninstall · 9 pointsr/buildapcsales

As a G27 owner (same internals as G29), get a Thrustmaster TX. It's cheaper and uses a belt drive system instead of the inferior gear system Logitech has used since mid 2000s.

Get yourself a play-and-charge kit and a chatpad for your existing controller.

u/RhoxFett · 8 pointsr/xboxone

Xbox One Stereo Headset

I've been using these for 2/3 years, love them. Comfortable as hell, great sound quality, removable headset adapter piece worth the price alone for using any future headsets/ear buds he may get

u/zrhodes3 · 8 pointsr/xboxone

To begin with, I'd rate most TV sound experiences ~ 3/10.

If you're on a budget, for less than $50 the Xbox One Stereo Headset will get you omnidirectional sound and enchance you're experience quite a bit. I'd rate the sound experience 6/10.

If you can spend $100, buy the Cloud II's. They're considered HiFi and they're amazing quality. Sound experience 8/10.

If you can spend $230, buy the Cloud II's and the MixAmp Pro TR, which gives you access to 7.1 Surround Sound and maximizes the Cloud II's potential. Phenomenal sound experience 11/10.

I am speaking from my own personal experience with each.

u/mossse · 8 pointsr/Rockband

Actually, the WT kit should work with RB4 if you have the MadCatz legacy adapter. (

u/SadXbox · 7 pointsr/consoledeals

if you would be buying one of the games and the extra controller anyway, it's a good deal. otherwise, not that great as you can get a 500GB Xbox One S for $200. for example

u/THE_SEX_YELLER · 7 pointsr/iosgaming

It's a controller standard for iOS devices that allows developers to easily add support for a wide range of gamepads that adhere to that standard. In the bad old days, developers would have to specifically code their games to recognize each individual model of gamepad they wanted to support, so most didn't even bother. There are a bunch of different MFi controllers out there now, but IMO the best one is the SteelSeries Nimbus. It doesn't have a clip for holding your phone, but clips designed for the Xbox One controller will usually work okay with the Nimbus. I got one from AliExpress a while back that I don't think is available there anymore, but this one appears to be identical.

u/Sario27 · 7 pointsr/xboxone

It isn't rechargeable as the standard. It will require 2 AA batteries like the 360 controller. You can purchased a plug and charge kit for about 25 dollars that will come with a recharging battery pack. In the box I assume it will come with a set of AA's to get you going.

Also to note though that the connection to charge your controller will be a standard micro usb connection, so you can use your controller as a wired controller without batteries if you are so inclined to do so. I am not sure if the micro usb cable is included, but if you have ever owned a smart phone (besides the iphone) in the last 3 or 4 years I am sure you have one lying around.

Edit: added source

u/wellssh · 7 pointsr/xboxone

I have the energizer one. It works like a dream. The stand comes with 2 rechargeable batteries and battery covers. The controllers slide on and charge easily. No more plugging into USB and wires everywhere. Great purchase.


u/WATCH_DOGS_SUCKS · 6 pointsr/simracing

What system you play on is beside the point. Let's see what we can plan out for you.

I'm basing this off of your other comment's projected budget, $500 - $1000.


First and foremost, your wheel and pedals. Whether you start with your cockpit/wheelstand or wheel is mostly up to preference, but I'd start with a wheel first, since a wheel clamped to a desk with pedals on a floor is the minimum of simracing, whilst a rig with no wheel is just a glorified gaming seat. Plus, what you get first sets the budget of what comes after it, and I wouldn't prioritize an expensive rig over a good wheel.

Anyway, where you go from here pretty much depends on how much you're looking to spend. If your budget is $500 - $1000 and you're looking to get a whole setup going, I'd keep the wheel+pedal spending to $500 or less. This will leave you with a decent amount of wiggle room for rigs and accessories. All of the suggested wheels are compatible with Xbox One.


Wheels and Pedals

  • Thrustmaster TMX

    A budget wheel if there ever was one. It's by no means a bad wheel, for $200. It has reasonably strong FFB and similar build to its more expensive counterpart, the TX. Though with a brushed motor and belt-gear hybrid system, it's not as strong nor as smooth as the TX. As someone who's tried its PlayStation counterpart (the T150, basically the same base with a slightly different rim), I'd say it's 75% the quality for 50% the price. If you're on a strict budget and know you'll be on one for a while, it's a pretty good deal.

    ^(NOTE: As of writing this, it's currently on sale for $160!)

  • Thrustmaster TMX Pro

    If you're planning to drive with an H-gate shifter in the future, then this version of the TMX is a good deal. Instead of the standard 2-pedal Thrustmaster set, it comes with Thrustmater's T3PA Pedals. On top of getting a clutch pedal, it includes a conical brake mod, designed to give more tension to your brake pedal and allow you to better control braking. Plus, in just about any wheel-supported Xbox One game you can map the brake to the clutch and put the conical brake mod behind it, giving your legs more room if you're not using an H-gate shifter. Though if you know you never want to use an H-gate, it might be better value to just get the standard TMX and use a DIY solution for modding the brake.

  • Thrustmaster TX

    In case you're wondering, yes, it comes with Ferrari branding as standard. Anyway, this is arguably the best bang-for-your-buck. TX TX's rim is interchangeable, so if you're not a fan of the stock one, you can replace it with another Thrustmaster rim of your choosing. On top of that, its belt-driven FFB system is a bit stronger and considerably smoother than the TMX, not to mention that it's hard mountable (is able to be screwed-in to a rig instead of needing a clamp). While some get the TMX as a starter wheel and upgrade later, this wheel is often people's one-stop for sim racing, since it's just that good.

    ^(NOTE: You really picked the best time to get into sim racing, this wheel is only $257 as of writing this! $400 is a decent price for this wheel but the current price is an absolute steal.)

  • Thrustmaster TX Leather Edition

    Similarly to the TMX, this is Thrustmaster's step-up version of the wheel; not only does it include a special black version of the T3PA pedals, it also includes a much better rim. While its style is more akin to the TMX, its rim is made from a metal frame, making it feel more solid than the TMX and standard TX plastic rims, and is wrapped in a nice leather instead of rubber. For only $67 more than the standard TX, it's a significant savings over buying the parts separately.

  • Fanatec CSL Elite

    This is the premium class of wheels, for the most part. Fanatec's hardware is generally only built from the best of materials and offer some of the best performance, along with being open to Fanatec's wider, more advanced selection of parts and accessories. However, unlike most wheel bases, this is only the wheel base, no rim or pedals included. If you want Fanatec's base CSL offerings for a rim and pedals, the price jumps to about $470, the same price as the TX, but that's only with two pedals. If you want their 3-pedal base instead, the price jumps up to $590, and if you want a GT style rim instead, you're already over $600 with the 2-pedal set, $700 with the 3-pedal set. Fanatec's gear is top-quality, but it comes at a price. Is the bit of extra quality worth the prices that the parts quickly add up to? That's subjective. At the very least, I wouldn't recommend Fanatec Gear if you're on a budget, but maybe consider it for the future.


    Rigs and More

    There are some Xbox One wheels for you to consider. I hope my explanations made sense, I wanted to make sure to convey the different aspects of each wheel so you could better make a decision.

    If you want my personal recommendation though, I'd say the TX, especially since it's on sale. $250 for that base is a great price, it's a near-perfect balance of budget with performance.

    Next on the list, a rig. If we're assuming that you're willing to reach towards the upper-end of your budget, then continuing here after you get your wheel is a no-brainer. Having a dedicated place to secure your wheel and mount your pedals makes for a far better experience than sitting at a table, especially if you're playing in front of a TV.

    Keep in mind that there are two types of rigs, wheel stands and cockpits. Wheelstands are only meant to mount your wheel and pedals, where you sit is up to you. They're designed to be foldable and easy to carry, making them perfect for playing in front of the living room TV or using in a small apartment. Dedicated cockpits take things to the next level, securing your seat to the wheel and pedals means that you won't have to worry about anything sliding around, and makes things more comfortable overall.

    As much as I want to continue though, there are many, many great options to choose from and reddit has a length limit on comments. For more information on building your rig, you can check out the r/Simracing Buyer's Guide in the wiki. It includes everything wheels and rigs to accessories and monitor mounts.

    Cheers, and let me know if you have any questions.

u/olbaze · 6 pointsr/fightsticks

The thing is, the analog stick allows you to use the controller in other games as well. The Raion is literally completely unusable in any modern game outside of fighting games and sidescrollers. And the Raion is literally priced identical to an entry level fighting stick, whereas the Mad Catz and Hori pads are more like "cheap third party pads". To put that price into context, it's more than the Xbox Elite Controller.

If you want to get into RB4, get an Xbox One. You're in luck since you've already exported everything into RB3. It's $15 to import 3 into 4. If you missed out on exporting Green Day RB, all of those songs are still available as DLC.

As for instruments, check thrift stores, Facebook marketplace, Craigslist, etc. If you can find the wireless 360 instruments, you can get an adapter for them to use them on the Xbox one, but It's a bit pricier than it used to be. Xbox One controllers are a bit harder to come by, but if you're lucky you can find them cheap.

Rock Band 4 - Legacy Game Controller Adapter for Xbox One

u/HMXOwl · 6 pointsr/Rockband

We've got a chart on here:

that has a line saying, "For all wireless legacy Xbox controllers, you will need to purchase the Legacy Game Controller Adapter."

Throw that name into Amazon and voila:

u/Backfjre · 6 pointsr/Rockband
  • Yes! All wireless guitars from last gen with 5 buttons work with this, same with plastic drums from either RB or GH. On PS4 I believe wired instruments work too without the adapter even.

  • For Rock Band 3's songs just go to the store and click imports to buy all RB3 songs. For DLC Just go down the list of songs (I sorted by difficulty and went by section) and anything that says purchased hit a and download!

  • Online is being 'heavily discussed' and has a good chance of making it to the game at some point. Once past DLC and games are all importable then we'll start to hear and see about bigger updates to the game most likely.
u/luger33 · 6 pointsr/gaming

No retconning.

The composition of the teams has changed a bit as most of the Spartans died in the novels and such, but Fred, Kelly, and Linda (current Blue Team with Chief) all survived the Covenant War and reunited with Chief in a post-Halo 4 comic without any timeline issues / inconsistencies.

Red Team went into cryo-sleep at the end of Halo Wars (2009, Bungie) and woke up 28 years later (after the events of Halo 5) and were the main characters in Halo Wars 2.

And Grey Team kind of vanished after the events of one of the novels... I forget which, and no one knew what happened to them until Halo: Envoy released earlier this year.

To make you nostalgic...

...and tempt you further.

Are you sure? Let's check then shall we? For fair comparison ignoring discounts because all the graphics cards seem to be on discount. A few notes, you don't need to buy the highest end models of these cards, nor do you need to buy an aftermarket card. I only searched for the RX 480, it is cheaper compared to the GTX 1060 but even a quick search for the GTX 1060 at least in the US shows certain models at around the same price of the Xbox One S:

Xbox One S: 239.78

RX 480 Ref. 8GB : 209.99

RX 480 8GB Sapphire : 234.99 - This is an aftermarket card so you are already paying a premium and you don't need this to reach that level of performance, actually, it's very possible DF is using reference cards. Oh, wait, this are 8GB models and there are 4GB cards, that although might perform slightly worse in memory bandwidth restricted scenarios it won't be a real issue in many games and will reach performance levels within margin of error in comparison with 8GB.

RX 480 4GB Sapphire : 209.99, aftermarket card

RX 480 4GB Asus : 214.98, aftermarket card

Now, this is UK. Let's go to the US, don't even need to bother showing the 4GB models.

Xbox One S : 258.00 - cheapest New

RX 480 8GB Sapphire : 249.99 - aftermarket card

RX 480 8GB Sapphire : 259.99 - aftermarket card with a better overclock than above

That legacy adapter you linked is for wireless instruments. The Midi adapter is wired and can only be used with this:

However, it is sold out, has been for as long as it's been out I think, and they're not making them anymore.

u/CheesecakeMilitia · 6 pointsr/Rockband

Any ekit with a midi-out port on the brain will work with the Midi Pro Adapter. The hitch is that many of the more inexpensive ekits have "midi-via-usb" ports that require a program running on a computer to convert the ekit's output to an input the Midi Pro Adapter can accept. If your midi-out port looks like this, you're good.

Once you have an ekit plugged into the MPA, it's as simple as setting the corresponding midi notes for a Rock Band config.

Also, if you're on Xbox One, you need the ridiculously expensive out-of-print legacy wired controller adapter to play with RB4. PS4 doesn't have this issue and can use the PS3 MPA just fine.

u/funkydunkleman · 6 pointsr/Rockband


and for those interested, pay attention to the amazon warehouse deals for this. this is their most popular e-kit, so a lot of them show up as used, with various issues, but mostly cosmetic ones.

the kit I ordered was $240 and listed as 'good' condition. they claimed the kit would have multiple minor blemishes, but outside of the box having a few dents, the kit appeared to be in pristine condition. (but ymmv)

it may seem like a good jump from the roughly $140 you'd pay for the stock kit with cymbals, but you end up getting a fully customizable kit you can setup in whatever way you want, and you have something that is actually build to be beat on.

also remember you'll need to buy the madcatz midi pro adapter (~$25) to get this working, and xbox users need to get the upcoming pdp adapter to get it to work with rb4. ($30) since I saved $60 on the set like I mentioned above, this sort of made the adapters free.

EDIT: amazon has a musical instrument promotion right now. MISAVE10 gets you 10% off this kit. not sure how long it'll last.

Use an Xbox One Elite Controller.

Got one when they released, just feels right now. It doesn't actually help at all with CS:GO, I only use two paddles, one is assigned to push to talk, and the other to inspect, which is why I'm inspecting all the time. I just always have my finger on the paddle.

Really overpriced, but again, I just like how to feels. It's extra weighty, and the leather grips feel nice.

u/bookreader52 · 5 pointsr/Rockband

Just to be clear this ( is the PDP adapter. It only works with the MPA and Ions. Madcatz also made a legacy adapter ( that only works with wireless instruments. The RB3 stock kit works with the Madcatz one, not PDP. Just want to make sure you have the right adapter before getting a new kit :)

u/sirjimithy · 5 pointsr/Rockband

This \^. Just to elaborate: Switching console families is essentially starting from scratch. If you exported any of your Xbox Rock Band games to the next game in the series, you can freely download those exports on the Xbox One, along with any DLC you purchased on Xbox 360. On PS4, you'd need to buy any songs you had again. Also, if you have any of your old wireless instruments from Xbox 360, you can use them on Xbox One with the wireless legacy adapter.

u/Mercennarius · 5 pointsr/xboxone
u/BCRplus44 · 5 pointsr/Rockband

Get this bundle. You'll get the whole band kit plus a free guitar so you're saving about $70 right off the bat and you'll also be getting the base game plus the Rivals expansion which includes online multiplayer later in the year.

If, and I really mean IF you are serous on probably not buying anymore games then you won't need a lot of storage space so I recommend this Xbox One S bundle. It's the cheapest price for the console and you could sell the copy of Battlefield 1 and use it towards money for more songs to buy.

u/GL4MURR · 5 pointsr/Rockband

It has to pass through the midi interface before it can pass through usb. For that you need the xbox one legacy adapter and xbox 360 midi adapter. (Xbox one legacy adapters were made and sold in short supply and they probably won't come back. If you don't already have one then you should try playing your kit on rock band 3. You can get custom drum songs there too.)

Then you have to set your kit's pads and cymbals to the correct midi notes (using the drum brain), which is how Rock Band knows what gem you're trying to hit. Those numbers are in the manual for the midi adapter

u/Gopherlad · 4 pointsr/acecombat

> X1 doesn’t support generic PC controllers so why would the version they ripped be any different in what they support?

Because the "X" in Xbox stands for DirectX, which is the graphics library that Windows uses to power video games. The whole console series was designed at the core to be as similar to PC as possible in order to allow easy development and porting between Microsoft's two ecosystems, Windows and Xbox. So, the assumption that supporting one joystick means the game supports all joysticks is by far and away the norm. You're either really ignorant about how this stuff works under the hood or you're going through some award-winning mental gymnastics here.

Basically every third-party gamepad ever uses either directinput or xinput, which means that this and this are exactly the same in everything except physical form factor and the internal product ID on the device's chipset. Similarly, every game with joystick support ever doesn't care that this is a different brand, make, model, etc. from this. It's all the same once you get past the form factor. All joysticks are treated the exact same way by the software unless you specifically design the software to not do that.

> Yeah it’s shitty but it is fixable and I’d hedge my bets on a design oversight considering these games have been console exclusive forever

They could easily mitigate that by releasing a statement saying that more support is coming. I highly doubt that'll be the case until whatever exclusivity deal they signed wears out (if it even can), though, because the evidence points to it being a conscious decision.

> It seems everyone has forgotten the olden days of shitty PC to Console or Console to PC ports that barley or didn’t function at all (dark souls) and this is project Aces first PC port

"It was bad before, so don't be so mad that it's bad now." They had ample opportunity to learn. Capcom's Monster Hunter team learned similar lessons when MH:World released on PC last year, but their sins weren't nearly as egregious and nothing about it screamed "malicious", just "incompetent". Bamco's actions here are a targeted effort at creating a closed system, and no one should stand for it.

u/SirLaxer · 4 pointsr/xboxone

That's why you have at least two sets. One set always fully charged in the wall charger, and the other set in your controller. It takes like 10-20 seconds to swap batteries.

Here's an Energizer set that includes a wall charger and four AA batteries for about $16. I used to use the Xbox One Play and Charge Kit, but it only has one pack, is more expensive ($25-$30), and I've found that those packs tend to wear down quicker than regular batteries. And there are a ton of people here who swear by Eneloop rechargeable batteries, but they're more expensive than the Energizer/Duracell options ($26-$36).

u/TrefoilHat · 4 pointsr/xboxone

I’ve had the older version of this and bought another of the newer because I like it that much. It’s pretty solid to have a place to caller home for your controller when you’re done, and it just charges. It should be plenty for a days of gaming but if you use headset and do t charge it you’ll run the batteries low.

u/BIGsTuNt23 · 4 pointsr/xboxone

Just curious, is there any reason why you didn't get something like this PDP Kinect Tv Mount ?

u/ravissimo · 4 pointsr/xboxone

I keep reading comments like these and it's fair enough if you don't think it's worth it to you, as there is at least a $100 to $150 price tag to 'try out' the Kinect (with the console, or purchased separately).

That being said, unless you've already extensively used the Kinect at a friend's place or something, saying "you wouldn't use it anyways" when you have never used it is pretty dismissive of the new tech. There were tons (TONS) of posts on this sub when the Xbox One first came out (where Kinect wasn't an option) about people saying how they didn't think they would use it, or they were actually upset they had to buy it with the Xbox One, and after using it for a few days or weeks, all of a sudden they love it, they use it all the time, and use it in ways they didn't think they would. Just search this sub for "Kinect" in the post title and check out some of the interesting anecdotes people have if you're interested.

Like I said, it's your money, so it's up to you if you wanted to get it. If it's not worth the extra $100-$150 to you with the console, then I highly recommend you try it elsewhere or purchase it when it drops in price later in the Xbox One console's life-cycle. I thought it would be 'cool new tech' when it was released, but it's fully changed how I interact with the Xbox and use it as my main entertainment hub in the living room. I definitely could not go without the functionality of the Kinect now.

Main useful tip for a console w/o Kinect, is double tapping the xbox home button brings up the snap/unsnap option, and if you're in game, double tap the home button and hit x to record the last 30 seconds of your gameplay. You can also snap game DVR > select end clip now > and choose up to the last 5 minutes of gameplay to record. Also, since you're Kinectless, I highly recommend the Xbox One Media Remote. It has additional buttons for bringing up the OneGuide (Xbox TV Guide), it's backlit, small and you don't have to worry about your controller turning off to rewind/fast forward/pause Netflix, TV, etc.

Also, download the Xbox One Smartglass app on your phone/tablet if you haven't already. It's incredibly useful for typing anything on the console, and for watching game clips, reorganizing your pins, sending/reading messages, or purchasing games and having them auto-download to your xbox at home when you're out.

Just my 2 cents. I hope you're enjoying your new console!

u/JamesTBagg · 4 pointsr/xboxone

How about those Turtle Beach Stealth 500X headsets? Anybody know if those are going on sale anywhere?

I watch TV through my xbox and absolutely love voice commands to change channels and turn everything on and off. If that sounds like something he'd want, then get Kinect.

u/bagelpizzaparty · 4 pointsr/NHLHUT

There's the elite controller for $149:

If you're running through controllers that often, I'd recommend just getting a standard controller with a warranty so that you could swap it out when it's no longer working.

I would also recommend just changing the way you're utilizing the controller. No official brand controller should be wearing down with however many hours you could possibly be playing in half a month. I'm probably one of the biggest grinders of HUT in the world and I don't even burn through controllers at that rate.

and it can run Battlefield 1 around 60FPS at 900p on around Medium settings, you got ripped off even harder since that machine isn't running BF1 at those settings anywhere above 35FPS.

If it's wireless, then yes, but you will need the legacy adapter. (

u/Conejitobrincasalta · 3 pointsr/Rockband

Hey there! I think I can help answer most of these questions. However, if someone else knows more about me or sees I said something that's not true, please feel free to correct me!


Ok so,


  1. Consoles: If you get an xbox one, you'll be able to use the xbox 360 instruments (IF and only IF they are Wireless) to play Rock Band 4. You will need one of these to be able to connect them to the xbox one. Also, If you've ever purchased any sort of song DLC through xbox, most likely you'll be able to transfer it over to RB4.


  1. Song Exports: You mentioned RB1. Unfortunately, the export option for RB1 to RB4 (and RB2, RBLego, RBBeatles and RBBlitz) was only available for 5 years, this option has now ended and it's unavailable. There are some songs from RB1 and 2 that you can purchase on the store as DLC, but they are individual songs. The good news is, you CAN get a used copy of RB3, play it on your xbox 360 (unsure of how much/how long), and then on your XB1 you'll have the option on the store to export 83 songs out of RB3 for $15 which is a very good deal.


  2. Instruments: Like I mentioned before, if you have WIRELESS xbox 360 instruments, you should be able to use them no problem. I myself use a RB1 wireless guitar, a Guitar Hero World Tour wireless guitar, a RB2 wireless drumset, and the RB1 USB microphone (that one connects straight to the XB1 no problem).


    In Conclusion: Since you only have xbox 360 wired instruments, I think your best option (regarding getting "up to date") is to get and play RB3 on your xbox 360. People here in this subreddit have said that RB3 is the best out of all the RB's. It also has a keyboard instrument which is not available in any other game. Unfortunately, I got rid of my X360 and so my only option was to get RB4, but you can still use your console and play a good game! Also, most of the DLC out right now also works on RB3 (Someone correct me if I'm mistaken!) ***Look at EDIT***

    Also, if you have the xbox 360, you only have to switch disks and you'll have access to way more music games and songs exclusive to the games (RB1, 2, and 3, Guitar hero 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 etc., World Tour, RB Beatles, you get the idea.)


    Well, hope that helps! If you have any other questions, let me know!


    Edit: DLC info has been explained in this post's reply!

Then use it. They went to pretty impressive lengths to make backwards compatibility possible in an era of consoles where both companies have either somewhat ignored or actively tried to prevent the use of last-gen controllers. Unless they're falling apart on you, stick with what you know and like.

If you're on Xbox, you need the Legacy Adapter. If you're on Playstation, you don't need anything but the Bluetooth dongle.

With respect to Xbox 360 instruments working on the Xbox One, you are thinking of the Mad Catz Legacy Game Adapter. You can get one here.

Rock Band 4 (physical game disc) for the Xbox One previously came with said adapter but the original Rock Band 4 Band in the Box bundle for the Xbox One did not.

Nowadays, it is wise, as you said to buy Rock Band Rivals. That is an expansion to Rock Band 4 which contains a Rivals competitive mode and Rockudrama, a VH1-like storytelling career mode (separate from the existing Tour Mode already in Rock Band 4). You can purchase a digital copy of Rock Band 4 along with the Rivals expansion on the Xbox store (IIRC $60), or you can purchase different Rock Band Rivals bundles, including one with just a guitar and the game (along with the expansion) or one with a microphone, drum set, and the game (along with the expansion).

The PS3 and Xbox have special media remotes for them that look and operate just like normal remotes.

I think the Xbox One even has infrared so you can literally use any universal remote on it.

Dedicated Blu-ray players are just trash, they often run Java on weak hardware and never get software updates despite talking to the internet. They're frankly a vulnerability. Sure you may find a good one among hundreds but why bother when an Xbox is so cheap and you already have one.

Then you grab something like this to hold your phone on the controller:

u/vid_icarus · 3 pointsr/FortNiteBR

steelseries nimbus + this phone clip for a solid hand held experience. controller is made for iOS and the clip is made for the controller. i’ve tried a few mfis and the nimbus has the most solid feel and comfortable grip imo.

u/statenotcity · 3 pointsr/xboxinsiders

This the specific clip I bought a few years ago and still use. It leaves enough space on the side for the headphone port to still be used on a controller and has a gap on the back so you can still recharge your controller as well. The kickstand for the clip is fantastic as well since it keeps your controller and phone balanced.

If you have a heavier phone consider taking the case off to minimize weight while playing or using an Xbox One X controller to help balance against the phone.

u/Topenoroki · 3 pointsr/mildlyinfuriating

The newer ones have a different design than the original Xbone controllers I think too, the originals had shiny plastic at the top above the Xbox logo, meanwhile the newer ones have the same type of plastic all long the body.

u/IceBreak · 3 pointsr/xboxone

Because they only got like 10 of them for preorders whereas they get like 40 PS3s (and probably more added in the last few days).

Amazon still hasn't sold out of day one systems after a week and they were out of PS4 launch editions in hours. All that exists for PS4 launch systems is bundles now and even three of those are in the top 10 selling video game stuff on amazon. Side note: The delayed PS4 (non-launch) is outselling the Xbox One by itself.

Again, I don't want to sound like I'm bashing Xbox. All I'm saying here is the PS4 is basically guaranteed to have better launch numbers. That's it.

u/ALegitPhoenix · 3 pointsr/xboxone

You can still pre-order them from the Microsoft Store and Amazon.

u/bassman2112 · 3 pointsr/PS4

I think they just use that date as a placeholder because since Sony claims it to be coming "Holiday 2013," so December 31st is the latest possible date it could hit. Since they have it at the very end, they only have to move it to an earlier date once the official release date is announced =) You'll notice that on the XBox One preorder page it says "November 31st" because they said "Out in November" at the conference. Same deal, they're just making sure not to predict too early of a date =)

u/LPfor3v3r · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Here's mine! :)

I can't wait for the release!

u/Theeyeguy · 3 pointsr/xboxone

If you look in the description it says It gives you a code to redeem it. I imagine GameStop will have it printed on the receipt like they do for certain preorder bonuses. I preordered from GameStop as well.

[Xbox Play and Charge] (

You mean like the one officially offered by Microsoft? Thats a pretty good one.

u/Daisypusha1323 · 3 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

There's actually a first party battery pack (manufactured and sold by Microsoft). My router is really powerful and causes some interference when playing wireless, so for games that require a lot of precise inputs like fighting games, I play wired. For games like FFXIV, I play wireless so I can recline back and zone out since a few lost inputs aren't the end of the world.

I have an Energizer Charge station for my XB1 controllers, and I use an Ikea fold away hook to hang my headset on. I put the cables in the drawers where my XB1 sits. IKEA EXPIDIT are awesome for console storage, though I have a nice Entertainment Center in the living room with my Wii (no U) and 360 (I use the 360 version of the same Energizer stations here as well) along with the controllers and headset for that TV.

u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/xboxone

I nominate the Energizer Charging Station. I've been using it for about a week with my SO bundle, and I absolutely love it. It's the same price on Amazon as the Play and Charge kit, but it'll charge two controllers and has the red/green indicator lights. You don't have to plug anything in either. The controller just sits on the station.

u/SimpleJoint · 3 pointsr/xboxone

Haven't had any issues with mine, over a year old. Looks great too.

u/Plyr58 · 3 pointsr/xboxone

This is the one I use. I actually own two. One for each of my xbones. I love them.

u/ImGaz · 3 pointsr/xboxone

Here's a list with some points both negative and positive about the games that i have so far on my Xbox One and if I'd suggest them or not. Also, look into picking up the Performance Designed Products Charging Station it looks great and is pretty convenient.

Forza 5 - Suggest


  • Awesome customization

  • Most enjoyable local multiplayer out of all the Xbox One games that I own

  • The whole unlocking vehicles thing you see in games nowadays is easily overcome with the ability to rent a car (its free but you don't receive any credits while using it)


  • The Forza tip/help messages are almost everywhere and can't be passed without listening to it completely

    Titanfall - Cautiously Suggest


  • Fun, fast paced shooter

  • To me it feels like it's what COD should have evolved into


  • It feels like it lacks alot of things that should have been put into the game for a strictly multiplayer game (because of this you can get tired of the game fairly quick)

    Dead Rising 3 - Cautiously Suggest


  • Awesome game for mindless shooting and silly fun

  • The customization is fairly good

  • The Physco's are funny awesome to fight


  • A big piss off is that you have to beat the game in a certain amount of time like the last games

  • The missions are very repetative and they can become more of a burden than something fun

    Assassins Creed 4 - Suggest


  • Beautiful game

  • As entertaining as the last few games (good fun)

  • Boarding ships is quite satisfying


  • The whole animus scheme in the story is something i don't really enjoy

  • The AI are sometimes dumb and it can ruin the experience

    Fifa 14 - Do not Suggest


  • Its fun to play local multiplayer


  • Is fairly repetitive in my opinion and I lost interest in single player quickly

  • Probably my least played game on the console

    PvZ Garden Warfare - Must Buy


  • Saw this game in store for the first time and laughed at how stupid it must be, Oh how wrong I was! Its incredibly fun and replayable

  • Awesome customization

  • Great stress free game for when you just want to relax

  • The free dlc was an awesome surprise


  • The local multiplayer is pretty poop
u/pureracingevolution · 3 pointsr/Games

They wiped out all support for previous 360 XID wheels, which is ridiculous. And they don't seem to be planning on making a new entry-level type wheel, like your official 360 one.

There are only two Xbox One supported wheels at the moment, the Thrustmaster and Madcatz (sorry for it being a link to Kotaku, but it is a good basic run down, with people talking about Microsoft's decision to stop supporting 360 wheels in the comments).

They're both $400 USD. I honestly couldn't tell you how good they are myself, but I'd imagine you'd be able to use the pedals, since the official 360 wheel's pedals were dogshit, these are more like just poop - useable (but no clutch pedal still).

But the Madcatz does have a lap base fitting you can use, and it is wireless. The Thrustmaster's more bulky and isn't wireless, would definitely need to be used on something solid like a desk or a rig.

So the tradeoff is that the Madcatz is more plasticy but more portable, tuneable, and comfortable to use (arguably). Then the TM is more solid, compatible with PC, and is sure to last on the outboard hardware side of things (TM's history with its internals breaking is a different story)

Here's an in-depth review of the Madcatz:

And the TM:

There should be more wheels coming down the line in the future, but I'm pretty sure it'll be no less than $300. I don't know why these companies seem to think there's no market for a solid entry-level wheel ~$150. People would eat it up.

Oh wow, as I was finishing up this post, I checked prices for the two wheels online and found a new wheel that's coming out October 15th, a "Hori wheel" that's $90, check it out:

Seems like it'll be what you'll want if you don't mind the lack of FFB.

Also, the TM wheel is only $324 USD on Amazon at the moment:

u/Lobanium · 3 pointsr/xboxone

Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition by Thrustmaster VG

They had some reliability issues when it first came out, but perhaps they've sorted that out now. When the wheel is working, it's AMAZING! It does have a 2 year warranty if you do run into issues.

u/TunaWiz · 3 pointsr/assettocorsa

This is the cheapest decent wheel that I know of that works on both- Thrustmaster TX

u/djfil007 · 3 pointsr/simracing

No official price seen for the Mad Catz wheel. But the $400 is confirmed for the Thrustmaster Wheel... listed on Amazon

My concern is that these wheels might be exclusive to Xbox One, not usable with PC, PS4, etc. There's no way I'd pay more than $100-150 if that was true. Honestly since they've basically shooed away the people who bought the CSR wheels for Forza 4 and Xbox 360... I have no confidence in Microsoft and the Xbox One now.

u/throwaway_5743 · 3 pointsr/simracing


Thrustmaster T3PA

Looks like you can get both shipped from Amazon new for around $400-$450. Unless I'm missing something, that's not around $800.

I used a PDP Kinect mount. I rigged the 360 version to work but here's the XO version:

This mount will fit on thin TVs. The main thing to be concerned with is the 1/4 inch or so overhang if you have zero bezel.

I would say getting PLEX setup would be the number one thing to do if you want to use your Xbox as a media hub. Also get the media remote, it's pretty cheap too.

this is a great move on MS part, essentially 50$ off the system plus two free games.

I hope Sony has something up their sleeves to compete with this, because I have a few friends looking to get ps4.

u/dr_taber · 3 pointsr/xbox360

This is an Xbox 360 and this is an Xbox One. The Xbox One is the newer console and what I would recommend.

The amazon link for the Xbox One shows two bundles: one with the Kinect device and a cheaper version without. If your budget affords, I would go ahead and spring for the one with the Kinect. It's a little bit of a better value.

u/authorctallant · 3 pointsr/GameDeals

Great Idea.. this is still $349. The only one I remember being cheaper than this bundle was the black friday deal from the Microsoft Store for $329 (with 3 games).

u/absentbird · 2 pointsr/Games

You can see the D-Pad pretty well in the product pictures:

I would expect a used one would cost at least $30-$40

u/ZapActions-dower · 2 pointsr/GirlGamers

If you like the Xbox controller, there are three easily solutions for you, by increasing price:

I use the middle option, as I prefer not having any more cables than necessary, plus any Xbox 360 controller can connect to the wireless dongle, meaning you can buy extra, new model controllers (not Xbox One) or use any controllers you can borrow. The Xbox One controller must remain plugged in via Micro-USB (included,) and the wired Xbox 360 controller obviously is wired. Microsoft has released drivers for all three and they should install automatically. For right now, there is no way to connect an Xbox One controller wirelessly.

For PS3, you will have to find a driver package. I used motioninjoy so I could use my PS3 controller for emulating SNES games, but it messed up other drivers and I ended up uninstalling it and using my 360 controller exclusively. Once the drivers are installed, you can use a Bluetooth dongle to connect the PS3 controller to the PC wirelessly.

A PS4 controller can also be used via Bluetooth, but requires DS4Tool which maps the buttons on the DS4 controller to their corresponding Xbox 360 buttons.

First off, I think this is the most elaborate contest I've ever participated in, so congratulations for that :P Fear cuts deeper than swords. I hope some of my items are awesome enough for some extra credit ;) Also I wasn't sure if duplicates are allowed. I will revise if necessary.

1.) Something grey and it's been on my wishlist.

2.) Rain, well not technically rain, she is a water bender :P Previously on my wishlist.

3.) Unusual, I think this is something I would use like twice a year. With ice cream or cereal.

4.) Someone else My sister and I want to start playing tabletop games. Previously on my wishlist.

5.) "Book" I took a little bit of liberty with this one because it's a graphic novel. But it's Batman, so...(Previously on my wishlist).

6.) Under a dollar.

7.) Cats There's a catbus in it, which is pretty much the best part of the movie. Previously on my wishlist.

8.) Beautiful As a Star Wars fan having the original trilogy on Blu Ray would be beautiful to me. I love high definition movies, especially ones that are aesthetically pleasing. Previously on my wishlist.

9.) Movie As a Browncoat, I would encourage anyone who has a remote interest in Sci-Fi to give this a chance. Previously on my wishlist.

10.) Zombie tool I don't think this needs explanation.

11.) (Updated) Useful for future. I have a desire to create meaningful video games. Previously on wish list.

12.) Add on I actually had this on my wishlist but removed it because add-on items are lame.

13.) Most expensive As previously stated, I want to be a game developer/designer so not only would it be fun to play with, I could create with it too. Previously on list.

14.) Bigger than breadbox Total in the box it is bigger than a breadbox. Previously on wishlist.

15.) Bigger than a golf ball It's a large book. Previously on wishlist.

16.) Smells good As a guy...I enjoy the scent of lavender.

17.) Safe for children toy I don't think this needs any introduction of why it's awesome.

18.) Back to school drawing helps keep me sane. Previously on my list.

19.) Current obsession I'm a noob to tabletop games. But have been wanting to get into it obsessively within the past month or so. And this also takes my love of A Song of Ice and Fire into the mix. Previously on list.

20.) [Amazing] ( I've seen one of these in person at the mall and it literally made me stop walking the resolution was so incredible. I know it's as expensive as dicks...but man...when these are affordable...

Bonus 2) Made in Oregon I would have put Tillamook Ice Cream, since it's pretty awesome...but alas not on Amazon.

Edit: Changed an item because I saw it won't count because it's a duplicate.

While I would prefer it to come with the charging grip, let's not pretend Nintendo is alone in this.

At least the JoyCons can be charged without extra investment at all. The same cannot be said about an Xbox One controller. And I own three of them.

u/mrbubbamac · 2 pointsr/gaming

Yup, if you already have a controller you can just get the play and charge accessory.

u/xooxanthellae · 2 pointsr/xboxone

What console does he have now? An Xbox 360?

Just wait till Black Friday and get whatever is cheapest.

You don't need Kinect or the Xbox One S. Just get the regular Xbox One with a controller... might be bundled with some games, if that's the cheaper option.

The console does not come with a controller recharger -- it just has batteries. So it's up to you if you want to keep buying batteries, use rechargeable batteries, or buy the [Play and Charge Kit] ( Personally I have the play & charge because I don't want to be bothered with buying/recharging batteries.

Recommended games for him: Halo Master Chief Collection, Halo 5. Final Fantasy XV is coming out Sept 30th but it will be cheaper if you wait a while to get it. Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is pretty cheap right now, but it doesn't have the best reviews -- it started off as a handheld game, so it's not a huge game.

Games are going to be way cheaper used on Amazon than in any stores. You can buy an Amazon gift card with cash at a store and use that to buy stuff on Amazon.

u/cptavim · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

I'm pretty sure you can just plug it in and use it without batteries. It uses a micro-usb cable, not a proprietary one.

If you don't want to use batteries, you can just use this official battery from Microsoft. Then the controller will be rechargeable like a Dualshock 4. It also comes with a micro-usb cable.

u/bajungadustin · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

My girlfriend told me that at the end of the day she will buy everything in my amazon cart up to 300 dollars...

u/Sayburr · 2 pointsr/xboxone

I play with rechargeables, and prefer them.

Here is a scenario as to why... you are playing a game, really getting into it, when your controller turns off due to runing out of "juice".

With rechargables, you switch out the batteries, and continue to play just like before.

With charge kit, you have to plug in your controller, so you are now using a controller hooked to your console. I, personally, don't like that. - $24.11US - $15.99US

u/cowsareverywhere · 2 pointsr/GameDeals

Just regular AA batteries (I use rechargeable ones). Or you can get one of these.

u/atanos · 2 pointsr/GameDeals

They can use 2 AA batteries or the Xbox rechargeable battery pack:

I have a couple of controllers using either the Xbox battery or standard rechargeable Ni-MH AA batteries. Both work great and last a long time between charges. Just avoid buying generic battery packs on eBay. I have had nothing but problems with them.

I bought this one in December of 2014, and it has been great. I play a ton of Rocket League and GTA V on PC with it, and it will for hours on a charge. I think my longest ever play time was during an extralife games marathon, I went for about 7 hours on a charge. It wasn't dead, but I was.

u/Deeplorable_Infidel · 2 pointsr/battlestations

40 bucks for one charger? that's silly talk. I've been using this thing for ages.

u/Mr_Stonebender · 2 pointsr/xboxone

I had that happen a couple of times, and quickly realized I'd be going through a monstrous pantload of AA's before finally dying of malnutrition playing this console, and then I found [this guy] ( I've had it for about a week, and I just hang the controller up to charge when I'm done playing for the day. Each battery (It comes with two) supposedly lasts 40 hours (or twenty per battery--I can't tell if they're being coy about that) so you theoretically won't have any issues with running out of juice in the middle of a session.

If you are, then might I suggest a shower?

EDIT: Fixed my bad linking syntax.

u/centenary · 2 pointsr/simracing

My point is that there is a TX version that does have FFB. See here

u/Solomon_Gunn · 2 pointsr/simracing

Thank you for all the help, I ended up buying this after doing some research on it. Seems really good and I plan on getting a different steering wheel for it in the future

u/alexatwork21 · 2 pointsr/iRacing

If it were me, I would get this:

The pedals are meh, but at least you get the TX base which I would place awfully close to the T500, but significantly better than the G29.

u/starfishbfg · 2 pointsr/forza

This is a much better wheel than the logitech and in a sale at the moment ($300 currently) so it's only $50 over your budget.

You will have to do alot of upgrading if you ever plan to get a shifter for it though (T3PA pedals, TH8A shifter for a combined extra ~$200).

You can get it with a leather wheel trim and T3PA pedals as standard for $450:

Keep an eye out for it being reduced in the Black Friday sales next week.

If you can't afford that, the G920 with Driving Force shifter is a decent fallback.

u/SgtMustang · 2 pointsr/iRacing

Logitech MOMO and DFGT are at or slightly below this price range, but they're two good ones. I've used a MOMO for close to a decade now and it's been a solid wheel. DFGT is superior to the MOMO in most ways except the MOMO has actual paddles instead of just buttons, if that's a big deal for you. DFGT is like 2x the cost of a MOMO though.

If you can save up another $100-$150, or wait for a sale, you could get a Thrustmaster TX or T300RS. They share the same base, and it's one of the best on the market (TX's wheel isn't the best, but it can be replaced). It's miles ahead of all the Logitech wheels (G27,Momo,DFGT) because it's a servomotor with a belt. Logitech wheels are geared which makes the FFB less precise, weaker, and gives them a "notchy" feeling.

IMO if you're looking for a low-cost wheel to test the waters or are new to racing, get a MOMO cause they're very cheap (~$80-$90, vs $150 for a DFGT) and good enough. The MOMO's low steering lock actually makes it well suited for F1 and other open wheel racing. If you are still playing a lot after a year or whatever, put the money you saved on getting the MOMO cheaply into getting a TX/T300RS.

TBH, I don't recall what type of batteries they take--I assume either AA or AAA. I bought one of those cheap Nyko charging kits at Costco when the XBox One was first released (years ago). The kit came with rechargeable batteries and I've used those ever since. When I got a One S controller the battery and cover fit so I use it for both the old style & new. There are other, similar charging kits on Amazon--I'm not sure which is the best. The one I have has been adequate.

u/Mikeck88 · 2 pointsr/xboxone

Nyko Charge Base
A little more expensive, but it keeps things neat and shows you the charging status of the controller.

Be sure to look at the options that are out there. I personally use one by Nyko, and bought a charge base for it. It doesn't require any plugging in using the micro-USB (thus saving your micro-USB cords from wear n' tear), and is very convenience. When I'm done playing, I literally just set the controller on the base and it starts charging. No fuss, no muss.

This is the one I got:

u/xevilrobotx · 2 pointsr/xbox

There is a Media Remote ( it is pretty cool, use mine all the time. Only bummer is that it uses IR so you have to point it at the xbox. One nice feature is that when you pick it up it glows so you can see it in the dark, and then the glow turns back off when you lay it back down.

If you get a Kinect you can also have the Xbox turn/on off your TV, control your cable box, pause/play content with your voice, etc. An IR blaster will also work for letting you turn on/off your tv with the xbox if you don't want a kinect (there is an IR blaster port on the back of the xbox).

u/gk99 · 2 pointsr/Games

> and uses a controller instead of a simple remote.

But yeah, if you're not into playing games, don't watch DVDs/Blu-Rays, and have no need of the voice assistant control, there's really no reason to get an Xbox over another device.

u/cylonrobot · 2 pointsr/xboxone

Don't buy the XBOX-branded media remote:

You have to point it directly at your XBOX 1, and the buttons are a slightly-elevated type I have never seen elsewhere. I have to look at these buttons to see what I'm clicking. I've never had to do that with any other remote.

u/ASAPscotty · 2 pointsr/xboxone

This is heavily dependent on the type of glasses you wear, OP. I purchased my new pair to be as lightweight as possible, and I have very few issues with headsets now. Aside from that, these headphones are the most comfortable I've worn, and I've experimented quite a bit with Sennheisers and Audio Technicas. I also have no issues with the Microsoft stereo headset. Quite comfortable actually. I'll also echo others and say that TBs are generally uncomfortable. My local Walmart had all the TBs on display ready to try if you want to experiment.

u/CyberKnight1 · 2 pointsr/xboxone

Yes, and yes.

The x12 headset requires stereo RCA (red & white) audio jacks to get game audio, and the Xbox One does not provide that. So, you will need something else, and that "something" depends on the rest of your setup. Check for an audio output on the stereo system or TV you plug your Xbone into. If none is available, you can use the Xbone's optical output and something to convert it to RCA -- here is one example I found just searching for "Optical to RCA".

Also, the chat cable (that goes from the headset to the 360 controller) will not plug in to the Xbone controller directly; you will need the Stereo Headset Adapter. Plug it in, and then use the balance controls on the adapter to be completely on "chat", so that it only emits chat audio and not game audio.

Note that you can get away with just using the Stereo Headset Adapter to get both game and chat audio through the controller and the chat cable, but in my experience with the x41 headset, it sounds like crap, because the headset is expecting a mono chat audio source and processes it as such.

Honestly, for the price and hassle, you'd be better off just picking up the Stereo Headset. You'll get the same stereo quality of the x12, but it's just using a single cable connection to your controller, and it'll cost as much or less as the equipment you'd need to get the x12 hooked up.

u/JakDrako · 2 pointsr/xboxone

I got this one for my son, and it's pretty good value for the price. The sound is good, the virtual surrounds works well and it fits my giant head comfortably.

The only downside I see is that the microphone is on a stiff plastic arm and cannot be placed very close to your mouth.

Edit: The Unity deal also comes with Black Flag. Both consoles are without the Kinect and have 500GB of memory.

Second Edit: Here's the Unity bundle from Amazon if you'd rather get it from there.

u/GluteusMaximusBlack · 2 pointsr/gaming

I just got mine for $349 and I looked for weeks trying to find the best deal. I got mine on Amazon and it was the Assassin's Creed bundle and it came with an extra controller. They also have the Halo Master Chief bundle for the same price, $349. The extra controller is worth $50 so you're really paying $300. Not to mention both the games retail for roughly $60 so if you take that into account you're only paying $240. So that's my advice.

I just looked on Amazon for you and apparently they are only $343 now so even cheaper. I'd go with it, here is the link.

u/Diss3k · 2 pointsr/xboxone

Yes you can. I have an older Panasonic receiver with an optical audio port linking tv/Xbox . Just old-school 5.1 speakers. The Xbox turns my receiver/TV on and off via the Power settings.

I listen to game volume on that. Any box controller will work, tho I favor the elite. I have the turtle beach audio mixer that comes with any of their headsets. I got tired of wearing big over the ear headphones, I just plug a pair or earbuds into the turtle beach mixers and only put the earbud on that has the inline mic on the same line. Just use the turtle beach mixer to lower or eliminate game volume outta the earbuds so you can hear game chat.

Anything similar to the below would roughly match what I'm using. May be simpler solutions as your audio system is much newer than mine.

u/cjeagle · 2 pointsr/xboxone

I suggest using a Turtle Beach Ear Force Headset Audio Controller Regular or Plus

This attaches to your controller and controls the audio and mic output. It has mic monitoring as well allowing you to listen to your voice when chatting. You can then attach your headset to the 3.5 mm outlet on the this device.

u/Travy93 · 2 pointsr/xboxone

The adapter has the controls on it. Some headsets come with an adapter (turtle beach) a lot of others don't. So you can just buy one and have controls and they'll work with any headphones. I don't think there's that many headsets, if any, that come with inline controls other than volume. The big thing about the adapters is they have 2 different volumes for game AND chat and a mute button etc.

This is what turtle beach's adapter looks like:

u/AvisRs · 2 pointsr/AstroGaming

I had an adapter from my old turtle beach XO one headset. I then bough a new chat cable off of amazon for £3 and it sorted it.

This: Turtle Beach Headset Audio Controller Plus (Xbox One)

And this: DelTex® Talkback Chat Cable for PlayStation 4 PS4 / Xbox One Turtle Beach Headset

u/The_Roptor · 2 pointsr/xboxone

Don't mind you asking at all!

It's a combination of 3.5 mm aux cables and adapters. My headset set-up also easily works with a ModMic5 (what I now use at work with my 1000XM2 headphones). If you need pictures I can share some links.

Cable management is key so that this doesn't become a crazy mess of wires, but for all the parts in play I set this up very cleanly.

If you want better mic monitoring, higher audio output, and chat/game audio balancing from the Xbox One controller (use just stereo audio, no virtual surround sound) you can add in the Turtle Beach Headset Audio Controller Plus (


3.5 mm Cables & Splitters

- TRRS extension cable:

- TRRS headset splitter (male to female jacks):

- Male to male 3.5 mm aux:

- Male to female 3.5 mm aux:


  1. Connect the TRRS extentionsion to the Xbox One Controller (with the Turtle Beach Headset Audio Controller Plus if you have one).
  2. Connect the TRRS headset splitter to the TRRS extension cable.
  3. Plug the Male to male aux in the headphone jack on the splitter and into your external amp input.
  4. Plug male to female 3.5 mm aux extension into the amp output.
  5. Plug the headphones into the 3.5 mm aux extension from the amp.
  6. Connect the ModMic into the mic input port on the TRRS headset splitter.


    As you set this all up I recommend intertwining the cables or using some cable clips like those that come with the ModMic to make it clean.
u/elitebuster · 2 pointsr/gaming

He probably has an old Xbox one controller, they did have a weird ass connector, and if you wanted to use a normal headset you needed an adaptor: Turtle Beach - Ear Force Headset Audio Controller Plus - Superhuman Hearing - Xbox One

u/chrisGNR · 2 pointsr/xboxone

I highly, highly recommend HyperX Pros. They are super comfortable for long gaming sessions (I've had problems with similarly-priced Turtle Beach and MS cans in the past). Also, the faux leather pads feel great. I switched them out for the foam ones a few months back so I can hear my girlfriend when she's in the room. Haha! Also, they're "cooler" for summer weather.

I do have to say, though, you'll probably want to cop a Turtle Beach adapter if you go with Hyper X, which will up the total cost considerably. The Turtle Beach comes with mic. monitoring. I can't even remember if Hyper X monitoring is supported through the Xbox dash. But they don't come with an adapter. I like having the controls right there in my hands versus the dash. And TB mic monitoring is much better.

u/ZingerGombie · 2 pointsr/xboxone

Buy the adaptor (£24), then get any half decent over ear headphones (£28) that include an inline mic. That way you can use them for day to day listening on other devices and you can use alternative headphones on your xbox in a pinch.


u/Kosire · 2 pointsr/blackops3

If you're on Xbox get the Xbox One Elite, not a SCUF. It comes stock with all the customization options that would cost you over $200 to upgrade to with a SCUF.

Unless you value cosmetic customization more, then SCUFs are great.

Yea it's a very common thread there, and you can't blame people, you'd expect better from a $150 controller than some flimsy parts and a 90 day warranty. Seems like people either love it or get a crappy one. It's what's kept me from getting one even though some of my friends rave about it

Also check Amazon

u/Kangolcraft · 2 pointsr/Steam

If you can afford the exorbitant price of $150, the Xbox Elite Controller is downright amazing. It feels great, you can map any button to any other button, you can switch out dpads and thumbsticks, and it has a nice weight to it. comes with a really long USB cable too, and it works with the Xbox One Wireless Adapter if I'm not mistaken. Here's the Amazon link-

u/Rapt0rRed · 2 pointsr/Neverwinter

Get the official chatpad. That's what I use. Then you don't have to worry about wires and you are still able to plug a headset in if needed. There are also two programmable buttons at the bottom for whatever your heart desires (I use mine to turn the TV volume up and down). It's also backlit and times put after about 10 seconds of no use.

u/bicranium · 2 pointsr/xboxone

I'm surprised they're not at major retailers. I can have one delivered to me within 2 hours from Amazon Prime Now. $24.99 plus taxes, delivery fee and tip so it ends up being closer to $35 anyway but if they have it I bet some places you're not thinking to check will have them for the standard $24.99 price.

Edit: you can also get this -

That has a 3.5mm jack and the same audio controls as the adapter plus a keyboard and it also comes with a cheap headset. My friend just got one to replace his headset adapter that stopped working.

u/Aglorius3 · 2 pointsr/skyrimmods

Wireless KBM is probably what I would end up doing.

But really I was considering getting one of these for my controller, if it worked for Skyrim hotkeys. I haven't had a chance to read up on it yet.

Have never tried playing Skyrim via controller or on big screen, because I need muh hotkeys, and Dragons Dogma is unplayable via KBM, imo (the UI nav is ridiculous, to say the least), so was looking for a solution to play both from my couch with a controller, for funsies.

Also, was finally checking out the Lock On mod the other day. Looks like it'd be great for couch warrior, joystick combat.

u/GFDetective · 2 pointsr/Toontown

Also, if you have this adapter on your Xbone controller, you can type from the controller, too, therefore completely replacing your mouse and keyboard.

u/HMXJosh · 2 pointsr/Rockband

PDP's not making a new wireless adapter, but the Mad Catz one is still available and will continued to be supported by the game.

u/Gr8NonSequitur · 2 pointsr/Rockband

If they are the wireless ones then yes with a 360 Wireless adapter they work fine. If they are IONs or you use a Midi adapter you have to wait for the new Wired adapter from PDP to hit this fall. If you were a day 1 RB adopter and have a Wired RB1 drum set you're shit out of luck (like me!).

u/dansla116 · 2 pointsr/Rockband

Yes, but I want to offer a specific detail about this that angers some people.

You can only be signed into one account per wireless legacy adapter and the wired legacy adapter only supports one controller anyway.

That is important if you have a sibling, significant other, or anyone else who wants to be on a different account at the same time with different Xbox 360 instruments. Only one of you can earn achievements, contribute xp, etc.

u/adrenaline4nash · 2 pointsr/Rockband

If you still have wireless Rock Band 2 instruments, I'd just get the adapter.

u/MCZRich · 2 pointsr/Rockband
u/Sandalman3000 · 2 pointsr/todayilearned

You can also use the wireless adapter if you want to use your old wireless instruments. Wired adapter is sold out and had a limited run.

u/MisterQwert · 2 pointsr/Rockband

If you want to go super (ghetto) cheap for instruments, start searching thrift stores. Any wireless Rock Band or Guitar Hero guitar/drums will work with this adapter, and all USB microphones work. Guitars and mics are fairly common, but drums sets not so much. Compared to the Rivals band-in-a-box you're not saving a ton of money and risking janky used instruments, but it's not a bad option for a second guitar and extra mics you'll need to complete your band.

For music, look for (new) track packs for the Xbox 360. They come with codes to export the songs, and they carry over to the Xbox One. Some are available on Amazon for about $10 for ~20 songs. Used copies are a gamble since the code is likely redeemed, but if you can return them without issue (Gamestop), it may be worth a shot. If you have an Xbox 360, buy Rock Band Blitz (25 songs included for $15) and a (new or used) copy of RB3 (~$20 for the disc, $15 more to export 83 songs).

u/HarryPotterRevisited · 2 pointsr/Rockband

Talking about rock band 4 or older games? And for which console? $500 for a band in a box is a shit load of money for something that was available for 100€ just a few months ago on That was the rock band 4 band kit for xbox one, the playstation ones have been hard to find for a while now.

Anyway, they aren't making anymore of those instruments and no official announcement has been made on the matter. Basically you probably won't find new instruments or band kits anywhere for a price that isn't ridiculous. Even the simple dongle that makes you able to play RB4 with real drums that was $10 on US amazon just 6 months ago goes for 200€ on ebay and I've seen people actually buy them. It doesn't look good for rock band if it goes on like this.

My tip would be, IF you are on the xbox one, to go for the legacy adapter(postage was $10 to finland so pretty affordable) and try to score any used wireless guitar hero or rock band guitar from local marketplaces or second hand stores if they are a thing in your country. I suggest guitar hero guitars and any wireless rock band drum kit, a guitar hero drumkit will work too but I guess its not ideal for the 4 lane notes. This way with a bit of good luck you could get everything you need for under $100 + the older drums are actually better, new ones have a lot issues with double hits.

If you're on ps4, the same thing but you'll have to do a bit of research since I don't know that much about them, but I do know ps3 guitars and drums will work with ps4 too. All i know that ps3 guitars have a terrible input lag, atleast the 2 guitar hero les pauls I own.

Oh, and basically any older rock band or guitar hero usb mic will work on both consoles as well for vocals

u/ItsKnots · 2 pointsr/cemu

I have an elite controller as well and I just use the mouse. That said, probably the best option would be to configure cemuHook to use an android phone for gyro controls and then buy one of those Xbox controller phone clip things to attach the phone to the controller. Here's an example:

I have no idea if any of the Xbox one phone clips for sale on amazon and eBay actually work for the Elite controller either (might interfere with the paddles), and I've also heard some of them scratch controllers because of the way the friction fit works for em. Just something to keep in mind since I'm sure you don't want to scratch your $150 controller.

In the future, I hope we see wii remote support. Then we just have to get creative about how to attach the wii remote to the xbox one controller. Perhaps like this?

Or maybe a 3D printed clip? Just some thoughts. I've already done 116 shrines on Cemu on BotW so I don't see myself ever trying any of this myself. Maybe. I kind of want gyro bow controls, or maybe another wii u game that requires the gyro will catch my interest.

u/daver3k · 2 pointsr/MonsterHunter

A few companies make clips for the controller that will fasten the controller to the phone. I'd personally be inclined just to get a PopSocket or a Spigen-style loop, but these clips do seem pretty popular. I don't have any experience with it, but here's the one I saw mentioned most often:

u/tehphil · 1 pointr/xboxone

Looks like you already ordered a new pair of cans, but I had this adapter and it worked well:

u/OkSource · 1 pointr/Rockband

I use the turtle beach headset adapter since it came free with the turtle beach xo ones. Similar to the normal adapter, but perhaps there are a few differences in audio delay due to the bass boost or internal workings.

Anyway for 1) I find that my audio calibration fluctuates when using a controller wirelessly with the adapter. 80% of play sessions it sits around 90ms, but it can range between 75-120ms when I do manual calibration. That's probably more than your TV settings? But perhaps close to a surround sound setup. Compare!

If wires aren't a problem, plugging in the controller by usb seems to drop the lag number and make it consistent. Plus, you won't have to waggle a thumbstick to keep the it from falling asleep every 15 minutes. As for the cable between the controller and headset, I place the controller on the right and have it run across to my left ear and it never gets in the way. I don't know much about Bluetooth headphones, but hope this helps!

u/llamajuice · 1 pointr/xboxone

u/SickOfAZ · 1 pointr/GearsOfWar

Have you read all of the reviews on amazon? Is the 90 day warranty true? $150 is a little steep when you consider that the Xbox 1 is selling for under 200 used with a controller. I'd guess the price drops later this year, and definitely next.

u/Phoenix3i7 · 1 pointr/xboxone

Amazon is NOT sold out. Scroll down on to where it says "52 new from $149.00 / 3 used from $199.99".

They are a bit more pricey, but they're there.

u/MentallyPill · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

You can get the Microsoft one that has a lot more features and an extra mic for $30, or you can get an Ortz chatpad that has less features and is $25. I really like my Microsoft one. You can map keys to do certain things, like pull up the friends list or take a game clip in the push of a button. There's a lot of complaints on Amazon about the Microsoft one but I've never had a problem.

Why isn't Cortana available in your geographical location? I didn't know that was region specific.

You can bluetooth with the PS3/4. My old Turtle Beach Earforce PX5 headset only needed a chat wire for the xbox one and xbox 360.

The headset I want does game audio along with chat. So it's better than a standard headset.

An alternative to getting the chat adapter is this it has the same use as a headset adapter with the keyboard.

The most detailed information I've found is from along with (second link for information on the cymbals, wired differently than the rest).

I haven't been able to try doing it yet, but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work on a Nitro kit.

After it's wired, I believe, all you'll need to do is get the wireless adapter:

u/sp_aceca_se · 1 pointr/Rockband It definitely looks like they still make them. I own this actually and I haven't had too many problems with it, but I have a Rock Band 3 kit and it can only use one kick pedal, which has been disappointing.

u/Soccer1296 · 1 pointr/Rockband

It sounds like you already have instruments from X360/PS3. If thats the case you don't need new instruments, just a legacy adapter. You can find them on Amazon here:

If you have wired instruments there is a wired legacy adapter being released soon by PDP.

If you don't have any instruments already then band-in-box rivals edition would probably be best. Some people tend to prefer legacy GH guitar controllers and RB drum controllers. Just my opinion :)

I have an offbrand sound bar with only optical like yourself, I connected it to my xbox since that was mostly what we use for entertainment and games and we controlled the volume with this remote


I got a PS4 Pro and a Switch so when using those inputs there was no soundbar action happening, I connected it to my TV and when it's on my xbox I still use same remote to control the volume, when on a different input I have to use the soundbar remote unfortunately, there isn't a way to control an optical cable soundbar with a different remote

PDP Talon Media Remote Control for Xbox One, TV, Blu-ray & Streaming Media

u/deSSy2724 · 1 pointr/htpc

I would add Eventghost to the list (based on Phyton), with that you can automate some tasks (example.... if this exebutable is opened do this and that or else..... if this window is focused or non focused do this or that and stuff like that).


As for the remote, I would recommend you the non official "Xbox Remote" from PDP (Performance Designed Products) with combination of FLIRC USB, that mentioned remote even has "motion backlit" for all the buttons (white) just like "keyboard backlits" but the difference is that the "lights" turns off on itself after some seconds if you dont move your remote which ofc saves your battery:


One thing I should mention about this remote is that you need to be careful because the case can easy wear out if you dont treat it well (avoid water, fluids in general and everything will be fine).

I’ve had much better results with this one. Buttons still light up and it has more functions to boot.


u/Redditisaladder · 1 pointr/xboxone

The way it fits in your hand, the responsiveness of the buttons, the range of operation, the number of different buttons it has, the battery life, the overall look and feel and the quality and it's $14.00 vs $50.00

Honestly, I have both. I had the cheap one for about a year then I "assumed" the $50.00 one was better so when I bought a 1X I bought the more expensive remote. After using it for about a year I went through my drawers until I found the cheap one I was using with my 1S and swapped. Now I am much happier. It's Amazon. Buy both and decide for yourself and return the one you don't want.

As everyone else said, new consoles are usually the way to go unless you know someone personally who’s willing to give you a great deal. Stores will overcharge for the used consoles and you never know what condition they will be in. Buying from separate sellers even more so. People like to sell their consoles for the same price as it costs for a new one and it’s always baffles me.

New XBOX Ones are pretty cheap now anyways. While they were cheaper during Black Friday, you can still get the S model here with all 5 Halo games for just $257 (with Prime shipping!):

The number one reason, at least in my opinion is 60 FPS... Even my shitty laptop (you can check my flair) is able to do 60fps, granted everything on low and at lower resolutions, and generally indie games only for games released in 2016. Personally I would sacrifice resolution any day to get 60fps, but that may be a niche, at least so my friend believes.

You save a lot of money (in the long run). Lets say you buy a console. Its 300$ (ignoring the current discount) and includes a controller and 1 game. Lets say you want another game with that. Add 60$. If you want your buddy to come over and play and he doesn't have his own controller, thats another 60$, again ignoring the current discount. And now you want to play online and you want to do so for an entire year. Pay up mate, another 60$. Congratulations your xbox has now effectively cost you 480$.
What could you do for a pc of that price? This is one I quickly threw together in pcpartpicker. I am no expert in computer building, and I'm positive someone else can come up with something better or something that costs less, and sure its not gonna be some sort of god pc, but nontheless will outperform consoles and then some. Total of ~520$. For 40$ more you get:

  1. Backwards compatibility
  2. 60FPS
  3. Higher resolution than console
  4. Ability to emulate if you choose to do so
  5. Free online play
  6. Various abilities console doesn't give you: coding, rendering, a convinient way to google answers to your homework, etc.

    This Build should last you 2-3 years, but you could do better ofcourse. If you were to pay a but more you could build a pc that should easily outlast a console generation, again others will probably be able to provide better value for your money than I could. But let's not kid ourselves. The price barrier to entry is higher on a PC. Yes you will be paying more initially, but over the years you will definitely save money, especially concerning online. My uncle plays on console exclusively, thats where his friends play, but he has paid a total of 600$ for xbox live alone. Probably more even, given the regional pricing we have here. You will also inevitably save a lot of money on buying your games if you make use of storefronts like steam and GOG. The average price I've paid for tripple a games is probably around 30$. Half the price you would normally pay for on console.

    With the PC you aren't constrained to what Sony or Microsoft says you can or cannot have. Sony's stance on EA access comes to mind. Who are they to say whats a good value for you? If I say EA access is 20$ a month worth to me, then its 20$ worth to me, it might only be worth 5$ a month to you, but thats irrelavent, it's always about what its worth to you.

    Another good reason for getting a PC is that it is your own. You build it the way you like it. If you want a Titan Pascal in there, you can do that. You can game at true 4k if you want to invest the money.

    With pc you aren't constrained by your input device, or output device either. If you want to game on a Television you can go ahead and do so, you can even game on the couch with tools such as the lapdog, though such devices can be pricey. You aren't limited to a monitor, as some people seem to believe.

    You can also use the input device of choice. I've heard retards blither about how keyboards can give you "dyslexia" or that they cause cramps. Sure it may not be for everyone, but you can plug in a controller and play. Heck, steam even lets you customise the layout for the controller, a feature missing on consoles where they are limited to using controllers.

    If listwars are important to you then PC is a no-brainer. The pc has by far the largest selection of games out there. Sure theres a lot of shovel-ware that comes through, but there are also a lot of high quality PC only releases that exist, if exclusive games means that much to you. Here is a list of some pc exclusive games.

    If co-op games are your thing, then pc is really the place to be. According to co-optimus; PC has 973 co-op games, Xbox1 has 222 and PS4 has 244. Obviously this doesn't say much of their quality, but chances are that with a larger selection you'll be more likely to find good quality games.

    Lastly, if you do not like windows why not try linux? Sure it can be a headache to get into if you know absolutely nothing, but nothing is stopping you from learning. I jumped in headfirst with this one and started with arch linux. It gave me headaches to figure it out, but now its my daily driver on my laptop.

    This is just some of the reasons I've managed to come up with, and I'm sure there are plenty more reasons as to why you would want a PC over a console.

    TL;DR in no particular order, except for FPS:

  7. 60FPS
  8. Higher Resolution
  9. Backwards compatibility
  10. Emulation
  11. Whatever input device you want
  12. Free online play
  13. Workstation use
  14. More games

So both competing consoles are the same price or cheaper, and also come bundled with a game worth $60.

The reason nobody is biting on either of your posts is because a [new Xbox One S bundle sells for $249] ( Doesn't make sense to pay $300 for a used first gen Xbox One (non S) with a couple old games.

u/spvcedghost · 1 pointr/nintendo

We shouldn't be inconvenienced because nintendo wants to cut corners and be cheap. If they want to charge a premium price they should include things that have become standard for its competitors. Even the dock should have an ethernet port as most other a/v docks of comparable price contain. Its not launching next to anything so using its launch price is irrelevant but comparing it to its closest competitor that had a lot of these basic features barring the memory issue. And its also cheaper than a new xbox or PS4 today. This NEW Xbox One comes with a mic, Xbox Live, and a game for about $10 less than the lowest price ive seen for a Switch. Just because you dont have a problem with these glaring issues in the switch doesnt mean that they are less important. What are people supposed to do with Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart 8 Remastered without online multiplayer connections? These games are almost entirely based around the premise of multiplayer and then being forced to pay for their unproven and doubtful internet "improvements" is something you have to take into account as a waste. Sony said the same that they wanted to improve their online with the introduction of their mandatory paid service but we see how far that's gotten themnot very far at all since we still see rather large amounts of down time over the system's current life compared to xbox live. My main issue is that they seem to be overcharging for a product that lacks features and that there are significant things that could have been included to rightfully justify the $300 tag they want to sell this with but instead they want to inconvenience us with the burden of having to purchase peripherals in order for the average consumer to enjoy this console. But, by the way you cherry pick certain lines of text to answer its easy to see you dont actually care if people had issues with "hidden costs," that this post was just some vain attempt to get brownie points with the rest of the fanboys and that you already planned to purchase the new nintendo console day one even before the codename of NX was revealed.

u/Heinskitz_Velvet · 1 pointr/halo

u/midfield99 · 1 pointr/Flipping

What's a reasonable price range for an XBox One S/BF1 bundle? It's a sealed box, so I don't want too big of a cut, but I'd prefer not to deal with ebay or amazon. I'm curious what's the upper limit I could sell it for if I was ok waiting a little bit. I think I could quickly dump it for $210 or $220, but that seems kind of low.

u/CoreFour1996 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Is it possible to build a PC better than the $280 Xbox One S for the same price?

u/atomiku121 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

So I went into this, and read the article, thinking "hey, but PC has a truly massive Indie scene. Surely, the reason PC is so much higher than the other three combined is because it had so many more games reviewed, right?"

Nope, on PS4/XBone/WiiU there were 783 games reviewed, 20 of which were classified as "good exclusives" with a score of 75 or higher. PC had 450 games reviewed and had 46 games classified as "good exclusives."

If we're rounding, just 3% of games released on console this year became "good exclusives" and 10% of games on PC became good exclusives. I'd say this is another feather in our cap, brothers.

When someone says "PC has no good exclusives" we can say definitively, with evidence, that ~10% of PC games reviewed are considered "good exclusives" whereas just 3% of Console games reviewed (and for this to be relevant you'd have to own all 3 consoles) are considered "good exclusives."

To tack onto what I said earlier, for this comparison, where PC absolutely smashes consoles, you'd have to own all three consoles, PS4, XBone, and WiiU concurrently to be able to take advantage of those 20 games that are "good exclusives." PS4 Slim + Xbox One + Wii U = $800 spent. For $800 you could get a pretty bitchin' computer that would outperform the consoles easily, and you might be able to get a VR capable PC with Oculus' new min spec being the 1050 Ti/960 and an i3.

"PC gaming is dead" I say PC gaming is stronger than ever, and this just proves it. Unless we're in some kind of bubble that no one in the industry is seeing, it's not going anywhere any time soon.

>Googles own website where you go to preorder the console. It was the first link when I googled Google Stadia so it should be easy to find.

>If their list of "games available on the platform" includes games that wont be available for over a year... as well as some that have no estimated release date what so ever... well, that's enough for me to consider it an untrustworthy practice, but I suppose individual opinions may vary.

Agree to disagree on that. Any platform will show games available down the line, Steam, PSN Store or Microsoft Store. I don't think advertising games that aren't available instantly is a negative.

>If I understand the service... it's just streaming the games from another device.


>It's a safe assumption it has a USB dongle that connects it to the computer. It would cost then pennies on the dollar to add an male HDMI cable to the dongle. This is literally all a chromecast is outside its OS.

I'm confused what you mean, you do realise that the preorder is just a controller + a chromecast ultra, right? There's no "USB dongle"?

>Prior streaming services like this were able to connect to the TV and were sold explicitly for this purpose. Unfortunately they were all short lived as streaming even videos at the time was demanding and the latency for games was unacceptable...

To be fair, I'm really enjoying this new streaming tech and I've played tens of hours of CS:GO comp/Overwatch/Ubisoft games via Parsec/GEForce Now/etc..., while none have been perfect they are all perfectly acceptable. My main issue with GeForce now is that it seems to be capped at 60FPS and often goes all blurry. Latency has been nothing but perfect though.

>It's hard to view this as anything other than google removing a vital feature so they have an excuse to sell more chromecast.

What do you mean "remove a vital feature"? What feature are they removing?

>No word was given on their site whether a subscription was needed or not for multiplayer connectivity.

No subscription needed for playing multiplayer, source

>It's not even clear if its cross platform or if I'd be stuck playing Borderlands with other Stadia owners exclusively.

Cross-platform is at the developer's choice, source:

"Are you going to have cross-platform play?
We're committed to developing an accessible and welcoming environment for all gamers and plan on working with top-tier devs, which include those who want to enable cross-platform play."

>How do you hold the phone screen and controller at the same time on a public train? If you just rest the phone on your lap or an empty seat you're just begging to get your stuff swiped in any major city.

I live in London, but ultimately:

  1. National rail trains have tables, which I often leave my phone on to watch YouTube/Netflix.
  2. Tube doesn't have any internet connectivity in between stations, so I wouldn't be able to play there
  3. I've been umming and ahhing about getting one of these, depending on how well Stadia/Shadow works.

u/Furimbus · 1 pointr/PS4

I just did the same, with my iPhone X. I’m using the SteelSeries Nimbus wireless controller and it is working very well. I also picked up a clip that attaches the phone to the controller - I’m not certain it would be large enough to accommodate a 7 Plus, but it is more than large enough for the X while in its case.


My project for this weekend is figuring out how to get r-play to work while I’m away from my home WiFi network - it didn’t automatically configure for me and gave me an “incompatible router” message but it looks like I can still set it up manually, if I can puzzle it out. Then, I’ll have a completely portable PlayStation so long as I keep the controller in my bag.

u/hard_pass · 1 pointr/EmulationOnAndroid

Actually yeah I use one of these ( ). It works alright if you don't take the controller out of the clip often (which I do). It hits the pair button when you put it on which makes it frustrating to take in and out.

u/gambino325xi · 1 pointr/Stadia

I bought one of these to attach my phone to my Xbox One controller.

XBOX One on amazon:

u/tman2damax11 · 1 pointr/xboxone

Actually don't buy that. It comes with the old style controller , it's actually cheaper to buy one of the new S style controller (better bumpers, bluetooth, headphone jack, and textured grip) and the play and charge kit separately, here's the links for those:

I've always loved the [Xbox charge and play ](Xbox One Play and Charge Kit The battery pack last a long time and you just plug in and keep playing while it charges (charges fast also). Had for the 360 and worked perfectly for 6 years. Had it for xb1 since day 1.

u/UnrealAce · 1 pointr/xboxone

My girlfriend picked up a pair of Duracel Rechargables for us and they've been working great.

If you prefer the Microsoft route it's always reliable.

Or the ever popular Eneloop Rechargables

All 3 of those options last quite a long time, I've only tried the Duracel's but they've been fantastic for such a cheap price.

u/Firello · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

yes, cable is ncluded i hope.. so thats all... if you want to play wireless, you would need:
this, and this

u/HockeyPadsBatman · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

To get an xbox one controller to play wirelessly on PC you need this one. It comes with a dongle.

I just got that one and the play and charge kit, which gives you a recharging battery pack for it. The pack will only charge if you use the micro USB cable that came with the kit, FYI. I felt like a dunce when I finally figured out that's why it wasn't charging,

u/GloriousEggroll · 1 pointr/linux_gaming

havent tried yet, but i found this:

I can give it a shot when I get home, think I have a bluetooth adapter floating around somewhere.

i dont think youll need to connect them through usb first as youll be making a connection via bluetooth

there's only one micro-usb port in the top. the bottom is a jack for headphones and a plug for controller accessories (such as xb1 keypad)

i highly recommend the play and charge kit for charging, the battery lasts a long time wirelessly (longer than ps4--i have both systems):

u/nick_winch · 1 pointr/xboxone

If you haven't gotten one yet, I use a rechargeable battery pack with the charge cable. This way you can play if your controller runs low on juice instead of just charging and waiting.

u/moosehairunderwear · 1 pointr/xbox
u/Omgwtf1001 · 1 pointr/Xbox_One_X

It turns out that I was forgetting to hold my butts. Lol

Actually, it looks like the issue was with the rechargeable battery pack I am using (

PDP Energizer Xbox One Controller Charger with Rechargeable Battery Pack for Two Wireless Controllers Charging Station Black

u/The_Salmon_Suit · 1 pointr/xboxone
  1. I'm not sure about Spark, but I'm pretty sure Neverwinter is online only
  2. The controllers are not rechargeable, however you can power them with a micro usb cable. (Android charger) Also several reasonable options for rechargeable battery packs on Amazon. Here is the one my friends and I use.
  3. Mainly playing games online, lots of deals and free games.
  4. If you want to play all the Halos again, definitely get it.
  5. It will be digital.

    I'm sure people can add to this. Hope it helps!

I haven't used either of these, so I cannot recommend them; but they are compatible with the stereo headset adapter (unlike the two that have been recommended so far).

I have the Energizer 2X.

It works great. Easy to drop the controllers in. And it works fine with the headset adapters attached. It does have some pretty bright lights though. Red when charging and green when charged.

Buy this it’s the best investment I’ve made and wireless headset. Wired ones drain the battery.

u/prop0001 · 1 pointr/xboxone

This not be your issue but I had similar problems with the xbone controller. Generally I found the reason to be the batteries were not seated completely in the compartment. I ended up buying this Its not really that special for $40 (just 1100 mAh NiMh baterries) but the battery pack fits snug and secure in the compartment (uh kind of like the 360 controller). I have not had a problem with the controller since.

From what I came up with when i was looking, This seems to be the best option now.

I understand you can swap out the wheel and pedals and add a shifter as well.... But i might wait to see what Fanatec does but they might be a bit more expensive

u/fleaver12 · 1 pointr/forza

This is the best deal at the moment, that I can find.

Force Feedback, and the ability to upgrade to a stick shift and/or 3 pedals. $286 USD. Normally $400.

u/MrNewking · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I actually think i got a great deal, i got the xb1 on ebay for $314 (With kinect) 2 controllers and 3 games. Bought forza horizon 2 and this thing and i can't complain.

u/EdBalboa · 1 pointr/xboxone

Please note the differences between the Thrustmaster TX and the TMX.
The one you want is definitely the TX , with swappable rims and pedals, and the optional 6 speed shifter.
I suspect most (some?) of the people mentioning the TMX are actually referring to the TX:

TMX and TMX Pro are the same entry tier wheel, except for the pedals (Pro has the 3 pedal model)

TX is the mid level THrustMaster wheel (swappable rims). You should add the 3TPA pedals to that.

u/trsman76 · 1 pointr/simracing

It is The Thrustmaster TX 458 Italia set.

Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition (XBOX ONE/PC)

Thanks for the details. I'm pretty happy at the moment with my setup, but one day I know I will upgrade.

u/Ruskayazaraza · 1 pointr/simracing

I think you have the Nyko Charge Base. Can you confirm this? Is your unit USB-powered or AC powered?

u/ShoutHouse · 1 pointr/consoledeals

I honestly can't speak highly enough of this charger and the cost is generally similar to $20

Nyko Charge Base - Xbox One

u/cminc · 1 pointr/xboxone

I have nothing but good things to say about the nyko one. It lights up a controllers corresponding front panel to indicate when charging starts, the battery packs last for hours and hours and hours and nothing about the setup is gaudy or obnoxious.

I've been using mine everyday since 2013 and have had zero issues.

u/mrazzino · 1 pointr/oculus

I guess I was thinking something more like this:

it doesn't remove your ability to swap batteries on the fly, but you could still have a set that is easily charged without popping them out of the controller. I rarely play more than 2 to 3 hours at a time, and then they sit overnight. Dropping them on a charging dock would make life simple. With this solution I doubt I would ever run out during mid play.

u/cougfan123 · 1 pointr/xboxone

Your right, its really hard and time consuming to swap in two batteries into a controller and put the two old batteries in a charger.

But yeah it is convenient to have a dock, nyko makes one that is fine.

u/Skruffyyy · 1 pointr/xboxone

I have this one
It worked well for a couple months, and then stopped working. I emailed their support and they sent me a shipping label to ship it back to them. 3 days after they received it, i got a new one at my door.

u/Dilligaf_Bazinga · 1 pointr/xboxone

Eneloops are probably the best or the Amazon basics which are the same thing. Those are the best if you just want rechargeable AA batteries.

But... I prefer the Nyko rechargeable battery and charge dock. Just drop your controller on here when your done and never worry about it again. I have this charger and have never run the battery out in a single play session.

Amazon link

u/BlackPath · 1 pointr/xboxone

I purchased the Nyko Charge Base. The charge on the batteries lasts for many hours, and it doesn't take long to chhrge them, around an hour for a full charge.

u/SuiXi3D · 1 pointr/xboxone

Regarding the headset, if you have the money, I'd suggest the Turtle Beach Ear Force XO Seven.

>I've got a pair myself and it's absolutely the coolest thing I have for my Xbox One. See, the Xbox One will actually send game audio over the wireless controller. This means that you can turn off or mute your sound system and only use the headset for both chat and game audio. It's been incredibly handy for me when I want to play a game, but my wife is asleep. Even better is that I can watch Netflix or YouTube the same way. The adapter it comes with has buttons that allow you to turn down the game audio relative to chat volume as well, so if your game audio is overbearing or you only want to use the headset for chat, you can.

>Now, there is a cheaper version of the XO Seven called the XO Four. It runs about eighty bucks, but it doesn't have a noise cancelling mic. Depending on how loud your sound system is, this may or may not be a big deal for you. Regardless of which one you choose, they both come with the stereo headset adapter so everything you need is included.

>You will probably have to update your controller's firmware before you use it, though. It's easy, and the instructions for doing so are included with the headset. Just make sure you've got a micro USB cable handy.

I'd also suggest the Nyko Charge Base for Xbox One.

> Nothing beats rechargeable batteries. Having a place to keep your controller and charge it is just awesome. I've had mine since the Xbox One was released and I've never once had any issues or even had to bother charging my controller in the middle of a play session. It's great to be able to set the controller in the charging dock when you aren't using it and have a fully-charged battery the next time you use it.

u/stancehunters · 1 pointr/xboxone

I think its the dock thats broken, as soon as I put them on to charge the charging light goes on for a half second then thats it. It has two separate places to put the controller to charge and neither of them work. I have a portable charger but no cable to connect it to the controller, so I was just curious to see if it'd work before I go out and buy one

its one of these BTW

his tv is very thin, yours is very thick. i'm not sure how well the gorillapod will work in that situation. i recently bought a second xb1 w/ the titanfall bundle. i bought it to put it in the livingroom for the wife and kids (no one messes with daddy's xb1 time). i bought this mount:

it works pretty well, costs $19 and feels secure. it also has a hood that covers the camera if you feel the need for that (i don't bother, let the world see my frank & beans, i don't care.... though my wife would feel different if she knew).

Are you using your TV speakers? I recall in the recommended setup / positioning for the kinect they recommend not placing it directly in front of your speakers, which your picture seems to imply. It also looks like it is at or under the minimum recommended height from your floor. I had my positioned much like yours and felt it didn't hear me / see me as good as it should. I purchased this mount ( as a test and greatly improved the area of view of the device and feel like it hears voice commands better.

I bought the Microsoft remote for the Xbox and have zero complaints about it. It was a little pricey but it works like a charm. Started on the launch X One and now use it on the X1X and have no issue. I would buy it again if it broke.

You can get it on amazon for $40

u/jverducci · 1 pointr/xboxone

I've gotten so used to telling my xbox to turn on, go to settings/games/tv/anything, turn off, etc. but speaking loud enough to be heard from all the way across the room can get annoying when I am watching TV in bed.

I use my remote almost religiously at this point since my xbox is almost always on for TV, Netflix, and games of course; but if they added a kinect mic to the remote itself that lets you comfortably speak commands, just like Amazon's FireTV, it would be absolutely perfect... I'm guessing they don't do this because they would make it a much cheaper alternative to the xbox with kinect.

u/moar_distractions · 1 pointr/PleX

I don't have one. I just thought the "fullstop" was pretty ridiculous. A quick search shows tons of media remote options.

u/Love2Nurb · 1 pointr/xboxone

im referring to the old netflix app, you where able to pick profiles, pick shows, do everything on netflix with just the kinect. but now you cant, all you can do is play, rewind, and fast forward. and my assumption to why they changed the app was promote the usage of the media remote Microsoft has for the xbox one.

u/FeudalFavorableness · 1 pointr/xboxone
u/SWDR117 · 1 pointr/htpc

The Xbox One Media Remote works beautifully for Kodi when paired with Flirc. It's what I'm using right now. Flirc is a little receiver that allows you to use any remote with your PC, so depending on how much money you feel like spending on your setup, you could get by with just a flirc and a remote you already own. Read more about it here (it has a built-in Kodi profile for Kodi-specific buttons). I've set mine up so every button on the remote is used: Xbox button for Home, view (top left) is mapped to tab (so it'll bring up/dismiss the Kodi interface while a video is playing),
menu (top right) is mapped to info, the OneGuide button to toggle subtitles, up/down pill to scroll to top/bottom of list, and the rest as they are labeled. It feels quite natural with the symbols matching up with the Kodi functions.

To control Windows with any controller you like (Xbox 360/Xbox One/any Xinput controller - so maybe even a DualShock depending on how you set it up), use this app called Controller Companion. It's an inexpensive little utility that makes navigating all aspects of the Windows interface a breeze. Has neat text input, so anything that requires a mouse and keyboard can be handled with this. I'm using it with my Xbox One controller + wireless receiver. I tried Xpadder before, but this felt more sophisticated. It optionally launches with Windows and disables itself when you enter a fullscreen game so you can play the game with the controller, taking over again when you're back at the desktop (can be overridden, also has customisable shortcuts). Supports Steam Big Picture and lets you launch it by pressing the Xbox Guide button.

Otherwise, +1 to that Logitech Harmony j4nds4 mentioned if you're looking for a more traditional remote, that's come up in the research I did too.

You mentioned PinMore for custom tiles. I use it, it's great, but it doesn't support regular apps. I haven't tested it yet but it looks like TileCreator can do that. Lastly if you want to get a little adventurous, check out EventGhost. Came across it a long time ago in the context of remotes but I use it for other things now (directory watcher). You may find it useful for your HTPC.

u/jp_mitchell · 1 pointr/Gamecube

This remote to be clear. Xbox One Media Remote
That price is higher than normal though.

u/stokedcrf · 1 pointr/htpc

I have a gyration air mouse for my htpc, and while the idea is cool, it sorta skips and laggy and stuff. I've determined the cause of this is due to a bluetooth keyboard I have that runs on 2.4 and stuff, so I have come to the conclusion for htpc you cant beat good old IR.

Consider getting a flirc, best money you will ever spend. THen you can use any remote you have in your house.

My personal favorite for the htpc is the xbox one remote.

For 20 bucks canadian, what else could you ask for? It's backlit and everything!

u/Gooberstatus · 1 pointr/xboxone

I recommend the free Xbox One Smartglass app. They have it for iOS, Android and Windows Phone.

If you don't have a smartphone or tablet, I'd highly recommend the Xbox One Media Remote. I use mine every day and love it.

This is by far the best bang for your buck! UNDER $60 for the headset and the universal adapter needed for any headsets/headphones of any quality/functionality!

u/Rumbananas · 1 pointr/xboxone

Personally since I have the PS4, I chose the Playstation Wireless Gold Stereo Headset paired with the Official Headset Adapter. The sound is great and it's amazingly comfortable. You're able to plug it into cell phones, computers, and anything with an auxiliary input! It runs for $99, but I suppose that for $79 you can get the official Xbox Headset too, though it only works with the Xbox One.

PS: Amazon prices are MUCH cheaper than retail prices just in case you didn't know :)

u/HeyLudaYouLikeToEat · 1 pointr/halo

This mic for Xbox One I bought recently and it's a great price:

I'm not really into talking in game chat but it's great for talking with friends and listening to game audio. Plus you can plug earbuds into the adapter too if you just want audio.

u/ZeroHasNoLimits · 1 pointr/xboxone

Kraken, the USB powered or the audio and microphone (green and pink cable) one? If it is the USB, it doesn't work. If it is the two cable version, you need a Microsoft Headset Adapter and a Converter. My recommendation? Just buy the Microsoft Stereo Headset.

u/TrentCowden · 1 pointr/xboxone

Yup, that's the one I'm currently using with it! I assume you mean this one.

u/Teknofobe · 1 pointr/DestinyTheGame

It's an official headset.

Yesterday I was playing a mission with my headset plugged in and halfway through the mission (my first one after undocking the controller from the charger), my controller disconnects from the game in the middle of a firefight due to the battery dying. My character ended up getting killed - my first solo pve death. I was sad.

Maybe it didn't dock right on the cradle and wasn't actually fully charged. I didn't check the battery level before playing. I just assumed it was due to the headset because without the headset my battery life has been excellent.

I do also have an Astro A50 I am considering moving off my PC to my xbox, as it has its own power source. The only downside is it has more configuration to undergo and there doesn't seem to be any app to test my microphone to make sure it is working.

u/HairyIGorilla · 1 pointr/halo

The headset that comes with the console is good enough to communicate with people, but if you can afford to or you have some room on your Christmas gift list, even consider the Xbox One Stereo Headset. For their price, they are fantastic. Audio is nice and clear with a pretty decent frequency range and the voice chat is super easy to balance with the game volume. It also comes with the adapter that lets you plug any headphones into your controller and use them which is about $20 by itself anyway. So the one you get is fine to use and you will be able to chat fine, but if you talk a whole lot and want something cost effective but still very good, I would suggest having a bit more of a look into that headset :)

u/jimbonics · 1 pointr/xboxone

Sounds like the Microsoft branded one may be the right buy. (includes adapter)

Alternately, I'm using these and loving them

You'd need the chat adapter for the mic, though. The HUUUGE upside to these is I can also connected to a bluetooth device and listen to tunes while I game.

The reality though... these are the ones you'll want (when they release)

u/onlinesquid · 1 pointr/buildapc

If i get this Xbox one stereo headset is there a way i can get it to work for my pc as well?

u/BibbitZ · 1 pointr/xboxone

I have this one and really like it. Not the greatest headset on the market, but I was able to pick it up cheap. Game and chat audio come through, and it comes with the stereo adapter for the OG controller.

u/BuddyThe3lf · 1 pointr/halo

For that price, Microsoft's own stereo headset has pretty good reviews on sound quality and comfort.

u/rossagessausage · 1 pointr/xboxone

Great deal on this headset right now that matches your price point! :)

I bought the XB1 play and charge kit - well worth the money. Comes with a rechargable battery pack and a micro usb cable for charging (which also fits a phone so you can charge it on the XB1 if you desire). Regarding the Kinect, I love mine and use it all the time. I highly recommend you try it. Nothing quite like controlling your media/tv with your voice. I walk into the house and simply say "Xbox on" and my whole setup lights up - I can change channels/music while cleaning too which is boss. Welcome to the club!!!

u/ACESandElGHTS · 1 pointr/DestinyTheGame

This guy has on-and-off been sold for $40 (typically $55-$60) and is the best off-the-rack set of wireless 'phones for the money. The cord you see plugs into the XBone controller. Good stuff really.

Not quite the sound odyssey of those Turtle Beaches but for the econo player they're nice.

u/Damian1990 · 1 pointr/xboxone

Didn't realize this. I'll definitely be getting the PS4 edition. It mentions that voice chat for the Xbox One requires an additional cable that's sold separately. Are they referring to the headset adaptor?

u/Carts27 · 1 pointr/xboxone

Considering most third party headsets need the adapter I suggest getting the Xbox One Stereo Headset since it comes with one and the Headset + adapter is currently cheaper than the adapter alone. I bought one a few hours ago for 35$ but now looks like it went up to 40$, still a better deal. You can upgrade later on since you now have the adapter.

u/scoobythebeast · 1 pointr/xboxone

For some reason when you search it on Amazon, the listing is from a third party which is selling it for more than $25. If you go to the amazon listing for the headset, then you can select just the adapter for $25 from amazon.

u/Unkn0wnvirus · 1 pointr/DestinyTheGame

u/fratopotamus1 · 1 pointr/xboxone

You can usually find it on sale for $40.

u/jamvanderloeff · 1 pointr/buildapc

You mean this? It can't connect directly to a headset, it goes through the controller, either using the adapter to convert it to a regular 3.5" combined headphone/speaker jack, or using the official headset that plugs straight into the controller.

u/GodModeKills · 1 pointr/xboxone

I'd say to just upgrade to something newer, instead of buying a converter, a new higher quality headset would be much more satisfying to have. Even the simple [Xbox One Headset] ( would be good for you.

Let me know your price range, and ill find some good headsets for you if you want!

I recommend a One, and also check out this link:

I just bought this same bundle (kinectless) the other day, but before Christmas it was $70 amazon credit instead of $50

So you'd essentially be getting a Xbox One, headset, controller, 2 Assassin Creed games, and $50 to spend on Amazon, which essentially makes it $299.

Several of my friends will be upgrading to a One from a 360, which is what sealed the deal for me. Regardless, good luck in your choice.

The URL listed is the Best Buy Deal of the Day page. No referral codes are contained as far as I know, the site just has a strange URL layout. The games are found below the Xbox One: AS Unity Bundle and AS: Black Flag listings. If you're interested in the Xbox One bundle, it's better to get it at Amazon or check if other retailers have similar deals. Amazon has it at $349.00 ($0.99 cheaper) at the moment and also offers a $50 bonus credit that's emailed 2 days after the order ships. Killzone: Shadow Fall is $20.86 on Amazon but if you have Prime it might be a better deal. AS Unity Bundle link with EFF tag:


EDIT: Best Buy offer now includes $50 Gift Card and Destiny.

I will try to keep this post as non biased as I can. Sorry if it appears to be unorganized. Wall of text warning

I agree with what most said in this post that you should find the games you like the most and buy the system that supports them. Xbox One is not backwards compatible with 360 games.

I have both systems and I enjoy them quite a bit. I recently bought my One before Christmas, when it was $350 + tax. I got my console without the Kinect as it was cheaper. It even came with download codes for Assassin's Creed Unity and Black Flag, and a 500 GB hard drive. The same setup is running for $387 on Amazon.

If you are a big Call of Duty player, this setup on Amazon may interest you. It comes with the Xbox 360 E console, 500 GB hard drive, download codes for COD Ghosts and BO2, and a free month of Xbox live gold. It is running for $237.

With both systems, if you have a relatively up to date tablet or phone running iOs, Android, or Windows, you can download SmartGlass. There are two SmartGlass apps specific to the console you buy. SmartGlass allows you to perform some Xbox controls through the phone or tablet, and you can use it to send messages to your XBL friends when you are away from your console, provided you have a data connection. SmartGlass also makes typing messages while playing games so much easier.

With Xbox One, you have the ability to snap. Snap allows the ability to do two things at once. The game will be on the left and take up about 85% of the screen. The right side can be a different function, such as messages, achievements, and even using Internet explorer (I will add that unless you have a larger screen TV, Snap may not be the best). I use my snap so I can listen to Pandora while playing games. The best illustration of Snap would be this commercial featuring Aaron Paul (though you would need the Kinect for what he does.) Snap also runs through SmartGlass.

Whichever console you get, it is best to have an Internet connection, though this may not be an issue. Xbox 360 is very offline friendly, while Xbox One is not very offline friendly.

Gold membership is almost an essential. You don't need it necessarily if all you do is Netflix and other streaming sites, but you do need it to play online multiplayer. With Gold membership though, you do get 2 free games each month for either console. You also get special discounts on certain games. You don't need to pay full price for gold membership as membership codes can be found at various online outlets for much cheaper.

Xbox One does have home gold. With home gold, one gold member can provide gold benefits to other players on the console. I have a friend with a silver membership, which means he can not play online multiplayer on the Xbox 360. I allowed him to save his profile to my console. Since I have my profile on there as well, he is allowed online despite only being a silver member. Basically to simplify it, One gold member can allow several silver members to play online, as long as all profiles are saved to the same Xbox One console. Xbox 360 does not provide home gold. More info here.

Xbox 360 is going to continue to be supported for the next several years. I believe I read that Xbox 360 will continue to receive updates from Microsoft for the next 5 years. However, like the original Xbox, there will come a date when Live access is removed permanently for Xbox 360 consoles. As of April 2010, Xbox original consoles can no longer access Xbox live. Most likely, the Xbox 360 will receive the same fate in the future. Trust me though, Microsoft will announce this several times, so you will get a good amount of warning.

Right now, the best advice I can give is to find the games you enjoy the most and buy the console that will support them best.

Bonus note: If you have ever played Grand Theft Auto V on the Xbox 360 or PS3, Rockstar completely remastered it for the Xbox One. They added first person view, some new cars, better traffic spawning, and new songs to the radio stations. All of those features add so much to the experience. First person driving is awesome, as the cars have some working gauges, and the new songs on the radio helps to prevent the same songs from cycling over and over again.

On Amazon the Day One Edition of the Xbox One is no longer sold out, probably from people canceling orders, this round is not looking good for MS

u/anon4000 · 0 pointsr/gaming

Sold out of their pre-orders, yet "day one" edition is still available for preorder on amazon Here and the "standard edition" isn't even available yet.

How does that count as "sold out." They are skewering reality--controlling the message, as large corporations are known to do.

I vote for the play and charge kit. first, the official one uses a Lithium Ion battery, which is nice. second, swapping batteries in the middle of a gaming session is less convenient than plugging a cord in.

u/iceS0 · 0 pointsr/xboxone

Nyko charge base $21 I own this and it last me a really long time with heavy gaming.

Microsoft play and charge kit $24

Nyko play and charge: 2 batteries $15 1 battery $6

The Microsoft headset (this one) includes the adapter, and can be found relatively cheap.

They're not the greatest headset ever, but they're decent enough for the price.

u/qxzv · 0 pointsr/wiiu

>Its $50, except the base version of the Wii U includes a game, so its more than that.

Xbox One is $350 with 2 games from Amazon. And from Newegg. And from Best Buy. And pretty much every other store too.

>Xbox live might be alright if you ignore problems with key titles like the Halo MCC, but PSN is far less reliable than Nintendo's online services.

There's a difference between problems with titles and problems with the platform as a whole. MCC is broken for sure, but Xbox Live and to a lesser extent PSN work great even if they experience downtime here and there. You can do things like chat, play games with friends, invite players to join with you, etc. Nintendo's Network is technically functional, but is missing even basic features. Like I said, it's still behind the original Xbox.

>If you include a PS+ or XBL membership for the, lets say 6 years, that you'll have the console then that's a massive price difference.

Agreed. I wish those services were free, but you do get PS+ /GWG games to go with the multiplayer service. There are also many games there that can be played online. There's really only a handful on Wii U, and that number won't be growing this year.

>You're only paying for online on your Xbone

What makes you think I have an Xbone? I don't. I do have a Wii U though.

>Online works fine in everything I've used on Wii U except Smash. MK8 works flawlessly.

Can you talk to people in MK8? If you want to play with 3 friends is there a mechanism in place for you to invite those friends into a session where the 4 of you constantly stick together and can come or go from any series of races? This is what I would call basic functionality.

>What's the point in arguing that the Wii U isn't cheaper?

I didn't say it wasn't cheaper - I actually said upfront it was $50 cheaper. You said it was "the cheapest current gen console by far." This is a huge exaggeration.

Rock Band 4 - Legacy Game...

Xbox 360 Rock Band 3 Midi...

These are the two items I have. I have a midi in and out cable connected to the pro adapter. No luck on turning it on though.

u/timmc94 · 0 pointsr/playstation

My bad, by your previous messages I had gathered that you liked the PS4. My mistake, I guess? /s

I'll just leave you the link anyway; controlling media without dedicated playback buttons is so outdated... almost as annoying as changing batteries. (shudders)

If you're from the US, it seems like the cheapest option right now is to buy the Rock Band 4 Rivals Jaguar Bundle (Found here) and then buy the PDP Wired Legacy Adapter to use your electronic kit (Found here , but it seems to be out of stock currently).

Even if you don't play guitar, the bundle seems to be the cheapest way to buy the game for Xbox One currently, as there doesn't seem to be a standalone disc version of RB4 for Xbox One (closest there is comes with the Wireless Legacy Game Controller)

u/Robot_ninja_pirate · -1 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Why does linus act like PC gamers can't game causally?

its really easy for any one interested:

  1. buy a PC for the cost of a current gen console
    using tools like;

    PCpartpicker,logical Increments,/r/buildapc,/r/buildapcsales if you need help building consult; Carey Holzman,NZXT's guide or /r/buildapc

  2. pick your OS:

    Either; Windows 7/8.1 or linux/Steam OS or for advanced users hackintosh with OSX or Windows 10 preview.

    for a smooth console like UI use big picture mode in steam or Steam OS for Linux

  3. Pick for Favorite method of control:

    The keyboard/mouse,Xbox one and Xbox 360 all have native support for advance user the PS4/PS3 controllers will need rebinding software.

  4. Find some causal games you enjoy

    bonus Find some Roms and boot up an emulator to play all the classics' of your childhood

Nyko Charge Base - Xbox One by Nyko

Get one of these instead. Bonus you now always know where your chargers are because you lay them down on the base when your done playing.

Check out the reviews here. Has a rating of 4.1 / 5 based on 360 customer reviews.

BTW you can get a new XBOX 1 S, and Battlefield 1, for $212 USD in US

If these sales of 5 percent don't do it for you and you save your money. You can upgrade your Xbox.

u/bfodder · -3 pointsr/pcgaming

Holy shit if I can stream Steam games to my phone and use one of these I might pee my pants.

u/KonstipatedMule · -4 pointsr/Rockband

You need an adapter. I bought mine for $30 and use my electric set.
