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/HeartBeat328 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

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
u/kjxtreme91 · 1 pointr/xbox

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.

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/glm3141 · 3 pointsr/simracing

it's a matter of price in the end, but here's my ramblings.

The Logitech path sets you back $300 for a complete set.


However, there's no upgrade path from there, and if you decide to eventually upgrade to another wheel, you'll need an adapter for both the pedals and the shifter. Additionally, the FFB is not as good as the T300RS or equivalent systems and the shifter is worse than the TH8A, and is 6+R, not 7+R.

The Thrustmaster equivalent would be a T300RS or TX System (they are apparently equivalent).
Including the Shifter, it sets you back about $550.


Comparing to the Logitech, the FFB is better. From what I've heard, the pedals are similar in quality.

I've used the G27 shifter and I own the TH8A and the thrustmaster is quite a bit better, and can be put in sequential mode as well. Additionally, it can be used as an analogue handbrake, which is pretty cool for the price. The shifter can also be connected by USB, so that's a component you'd be able to keep should you decide to upgrade in the future.

Also, Thrustmaster makes a variety of bases, some more high-end than what you're looking at, so you'd have an upgrade path without switching manufacturers and having to find a solution for pedals.

As for the TMX Pro, the wheel + the T3pa pedals + the shifter cost around $415. (look at the proposed sets)


However, I would not buy the T3pa's separately. If you buy separate pedals, I'd go for the Fanatec CSL Elite Pedals with the Loadcell Brake. They are more expensive, but a lot better and have USB connectivity, should you switch manufacturers in the future.


I hope I've not confused you too much.

In conclusion:

-> Ok Force Feedback, Ok Pedals, Meh Shifter $300 | No Upgrade Path

T300 (VG TX) incl T3pa + TH8A
-> Good Force Feedback, Ok Pedals, Good Shifter $550 | Upgrade Path for Wheel base/Rims

TMX Pro + Fanatec CSL Elite LC + TH8A ->
Ok Force Feedback, Great Pedals, Good Shifter $550 | Upgrade Path unlimited, all separately connected via USB.

All that said, it depends a lot on how serious you want to get. If you already know that you're not going to go full sim-racing, the Logitech is going to be plenty good enough for you.

However, if you want to start sim-racing seriously, and are looking at games such as iRacing, RaceRoom, rFactor, pCars, Assetto Corsa and the like, good pedals make you quicker than good wheels

I changed my shipping location to my brother since I was able to get one reserved at Best Buy. Here is my exchange with Amazon through email:

>10/24/13 14:25:43
Your Name: Mike
Order Id:
Other info:Delivery Estimate not showing correctly.
Selected Order Items:
Xbox One Console - Day One Edition
Comments:Good Afternoon,

>First I want to preface this by saying not to alter my order in anyway as I don't want to risk the chance of losing my spot for a day one order.

>The page for this item (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CMQTVK0/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) clearly states:

>Orders are guaranteed to be available on the Release Day of November 22, 2013.

>My delivery status on my order currently states:

>Delivery estimate We need a little more time to provide you with a good estimate. We'll notify you via e-mail as soon as we have an estimated delivery date.

>You have some worried customers in the following two discussions:



>Reading through those discussions you can see that it has happened to a bunch of people and we are worried we won't get our preorder on release date. Some support people have said that is just a technical glitch that will be fixed while others have said that we may have problems getting our orders. I personally should be one of the first in line as I ordered on the original opening of the date of June 10th. I recently changed the address it was being shipped to as I am going to send this one to my brother. Once I changed the address it showed that statement as the delivery estimate.

>People are just worried they won't get their system. Hopefully this is just a glitch and will clear up in a few days but is there anyway to know for sure? Can we get word from a high level support member to verify?

>I do a lot of business with you guys and hope that this glitch will get rectified. I know your support is usually top notch. Maybe someone in support can post on these 2 topics and ease our minds.

>Thank you for the help,

Here was there generic response but this may have been what triggered the research into the matter as I made sure to specify that this needs to move up the chain of command to someone who knows something. This support member was obviously a Level I following a script. I'd like to hear from an actual manager or a statement from Amazon that we are safe with our orders.


>I understand your concern about the estimated date for "Xbox One Console - Day One Edition".

>I'm forwarding your comments to the appropriate managers. You might not see an estimated delivery date on the order detail page due to the volume of pre orders at this item. However, you'll receive an email when your order is shipped with your tracking number. Your order could ship any time between the Release-Date.

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/Captain_Midnight · 19 pointsr/Games

As long as you're in the Xbox One neighborhood, I also recommend looking at:

  • Sunset Overdrive: Launch trailer. Well-respected developer with a couple decades of stuff under their belts. You can get this one for ten bucks on Amazon.

  • Forza Horizon 2: E3 trailer. I generally don't like racing games, but this one is slick, easy to get into, and is set in an open-world environment that I just like driving around in. Horizon 3 is coming out in a few months. Free demo downloadable here. If you like it, Amazon has it on sale for $35. If you have a GCU account with Best Buy, they will price match Amazon, where it's currently marked down to $35, and bring the price down to $28. This only works with physical copies. XB1 also has Forza 5 and 6, which are more traditional racing games.

  • Then there's the Master Chief Collection, which lets you play Halo 1 through 4 (but not Reach). The first two games have been remastered. It's pretty cool. Multiplayer was pretty buggy at first, and by the time it got fixed, most people had moved on to other things. But the single-player campaigns are a fun ride. Launch trailer.

    I personally feel that the PS4 has a better selection of games overall, but if you're ready to try an Xbox, there are some worthy reasons to do so. The console also has support for HBO Now, while the PS4 does not. You can buy the Xbox One S next month, which is a revised version of the console, but it costs $400. There are cheaper versions coming (less storage) but not until December. You you can get a bundle with the regular version now.
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!

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.

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.

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 :)

>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.

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.

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: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kyHwH5zCOk

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:

|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/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/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/elcanadiano · 3 pointsr/Rockband

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).

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.

  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!

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/technifocal · 1 pointr/reddeadredemption2

>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.

    >Google in confident in all their products, whether they half ass it or go 210% in... up until the second they abandon them.

    Fair enough.
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.

All six of OPs games were new releases.

Assassin's Creed: Unity - Huh, Amazon discounted this one for some reason though. Save $10.10.

Grand Theft Auto V - Save $0.03! Wow, what a deal.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare - Save a whole $3.16!

Far Cry 4 - Exact same Price

Halo: The Master Chief Collection - Save another $0.03!

Sunset Overdrive Even better! Save a whole $0.96!

New releases are priced the same in the US. Old games, yeah, I agree it gets ridiculous. But, new releases are the same - with a few exceptions here and there depending on retailer incentives (like AC:U above).

I'm not getting ripped off by paying $0.03 more for Halo or AC:U. I paid the same price you did.

The Xbox One S is shockingly cheap. I picked one up for $250 with BF1 included. The 500 GB One S is going for $261 on Amazon right now, BF1 (which I also think is a pretty fun game for a while) included. It's a sexy little machine; the One S is the Xbox we should have got at launch. Even the lack of power brick adapter is a much welcomed feature lol. I get endless hours of enjoyment from Halo 5. Don't let the haters taint your judgement, this game is amazing, the arena multiplayer is perfectly tuned IMO. The campaigns of the previous games are a blast to play, as anybody will tell you.

u/emdave · 2 pointsr/xboxone

Any Xbox compatible 3.5mm Jack headset can be used with the official Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter. They are about £16 ($20?) on Amazon (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Official-Xbox-Stereo-Headset-Adapter/dp/B00I41H7US/). This plugs into the rectangular port on the bottom of the controller, and gives you mute, chat / game balance, and volume up / down buttons. It's very simple to use, and gives you full control over the volume balance for game and chat.

You can also get aftermarket pads from PDP, which have a 3.5mm socket for any Xbox compatible headset with a 3.5mm Jack, and they have a special dedicated button by the right thumb stick, which when double tapped, mutes the mic, and when held down, turns the D-Pad into a volume up / down and chat / game balance control.

This is what I use, and it is so easy to adjust game and chat volume on the fly, I'm actually surprised MS don't do something similar - it's such an intuitive way of doing it. One thing though, is that I don't know whether PDP do a wireless pad with this feature, (I'd have to google it) as the ones I've seen on Amazon are wired (as is mine). They are only about £35 / $40 or less though, and the cable means the controller is light, and never runs out of battery! :D

Edit - Had a look and can't find a wireless version, but this is the one I have, and I am very pleased with it, cable is nice and long, and fits securely. It feels a bit different to a regular controller, some things better, some things worse. The home button is much easier to use, but the triggers are flatter. Buy from Amazon with free delivery and try it? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Afterglow-Prismatic-Wired-Controller-Xbox-x/dp/B00ZJRHSRW/

Ahh nice. You should be able to get a pretty decent upgrade.

Thrustmaster is probably what you are going to want to be on the lookout for, since they have some nice stuff in the $3-400 range when it goes on sale. The other option would generally be a Logitech G29 or G920, but while being solid, arent really worth more than $200. The Thrustmaster stuff will be better overall.

To that note, check out this link at Amazon. This was the sale I mentioned above, although it is out of stock right now. It was a bundle of Pedals (roughly $100 if bought separately), a Shifter (roughly $130), the wheel base (roughly $200+), and a wheel rim (roughly $150) for ~$475. If you have heard the term insta-buy, this was it. I would check this every day or two to see if it comes back in stock.

Around BF, Thrustmaster will usually have a variety of deals on the T300. There are a variety of wheel rims it might come with, or a variety of pedals. I would highly recommend getting the pedal set with 3 pedals (clutch, brake, and throttle). The 2 pedal set (brake, throttle) is really low quality and just cheap plastic.

Few bundles include the shifter, so dont go out of your way looking for everything I mentioned in the bundle above. For a TM bundle, it will include the pedals, wheel, and rim for ~$3-400 depending on what exactly is included. The bundle above included a different rim than what normally comes with the wheel base, so it's up to you to figure out what you would be most interested in.

To give you an idea, this might be a good bundle that you might be interested in. Might be under $400 for BF. The bundle I listed above comes with a Ferrari branded rim while this is just a generic TM rim made with leather. Still high quality though and still better than the normal rim is usually sold.

This sort of stuff goes on sale at Amazon every so often, so keep an eye out before BF too.

My fiance is so amazing, he works so hard, seriously. He works full time as an engineer and then also goes to school full time at Purdue. I couldn't more grateful that this person loves me so much.

I actually won him an XboxOne for Christmas from a radio raffle that took place in our city. He doesn't own any games for it yet, he bought Ryse but completed it in one day and resold it to the store.

He loves mech games like Armored Core. So I know he will love this. Honestly i'd save this for Father's Day for him.

I don't have a preference for new or used as long as it has a case.

Thanks for the contest.

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

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 amazon.de. 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/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!!!

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:

That's the guy I am using right now. I literally bought it because I wanted to do FFB with FM6 and try out iRacing. I tried FM6 for a few hours and just couldn't get the feel down. The way it feels when your back end starts to lose it is just so wrong it makes it super difficult for me to handle. After that I bought Project Cars on PC and wow, it was a huge different. PC isn't a proper sim, but the FFB is great fun. iRacing is simply amazing.

Possibly part of the problem is I started doing weekly races at CXC Simulations in Los Angeles, and their iRacing setups are unbelieveably amazing.

Congrats OP your profit! You are very generous for doing this! All I want is Titanfall 2 on Xbox One or Dishonored 2 on Steam. I'm tight on money because I've been saving up for an engagement ring for my girlfriend so I've cut my video game spending. Thanks OP! You're the best!



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/OneTriggerTooClose · 1 pointr/gaming

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.

u/ckrad · 2 pointsr/bose

Do you have the Xbox One already? If you buy it brand new, the controller will have the 3.5mm socket already, but for some reason it doesn't like the QC35's and you have to plug it in really, really slowly (it's best to have some audio playing like a title screen of a game so you can hear the music pop in) but if you want to save that trouble here is the Stereo Adaptor and here is the QC25 Android Cable i purchased, i can assure you that it works. and yes the microphone works too.

u/-Imnus- · -13 pointsr/PS4

inFAMOUS: Second Son just surpassed Titanfall (Xbox One) in Amazon's March Bestseller List

I think this is pretty interesting considering the difference in marketing budgets between the two games and the fact that PS4 and Xbox One are pretty close in sales in the US. inFAMOUS: Second Son is turning out to be a bigger seller than anyone expected.

Still, it's pretty much a given that Titanfall (Xbox One) still outsold inFAMOUS: Second Son thanks to the bundles that basically gave Titanfall for free and in some places was even discounted by $50. That brings the question as to why didn't Sony bundled inFAMOUS in the US just like they did in Europe, specially with the PS4 still selling so much, that would have boosted the sales of the game significantly.

u/scoobythebeast · 0 pointsr/xboxone

I highly recommend the xbox stereo headset its on sale at Amazon for about $60 but is a good quality headset for that price. It does game audio and voice chat and its pretty comfortable. When you don't want to use it, you can leave the puck in (chat adapter) and it stays out of the way, but unplug the headset's 3.5mm plug easily and without worries of breaking it.

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/twalker294 · 2 pointsr/forza

The Thrustmaster TX is another option. I think it's a bit better quality than the Logitech and the feedback is better. It's a bit cheaper at $299 BUT the pedal set doesn't have a clutch. If you want the 3 pedal set it's another $150. I love my TX and I've replaced the standard wheel with the VG leather wheel (also $150,) and it feels great. You can also get the TX with the VG wheel and the 3 pedal set for $469 http://www.amazon.com/Thrustmaster-Racing-Wheel-Leather-Premium-Official/dp/B0151K6FPC/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1463535677&sr=8-2&keywords=thrustmaster+vg

There is also an addon H-pattern shifter available for $100. Yes you can spend a good bit of money on your setup but it's an absolute must for all but the most casual racing gamer.

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: https://www.amazon.com/Thrustmaster-Racing-Ferrari-xbox-one-Windows/dp/B00ENFVS5Y

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.

By the way, have you played Project Cars? I am really interested in that one. How does is play on the Xbox? I know it is supposed to be better on the PS4 (which I do own), but I can only afford to buy one driving wheel right now.

Since GT7 won't be here for about another 15 months or more, I am playing Forza 6. So...if I buy the thrustmaster vg tx for use with my Xbox, I'll want to play Project Cars on the Xbox as well.

So...can the Xbox handle it, or not?

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

> How many average consumers even know how to build a PC, much less upgrade a graphics card.

Quite a bit, steam users outnumber online xbox 360 users and that doesn't count MMO's, MOBA's and offline games from GOG. Even if they don't know how to build a pC there's the option to buy over priced pre built systems or a laptop.

> Take Titanfall for example, I own a copy for both the Xbox One and PC. As far as the PC version goes, I've played it about 3 times since release. The Xbox One copy has been played 1000x more.

Why did you buy the PC version? You should've just saved your money. Well it's on sale on Amazon for $35 for PC and xbox one now.


> All those options are a little overwhelming to the casual gamer who just wants to plug a system in and play.

It's still better than having to pay live each year and the cost of console games. Putting a little effort towards knowing about PC's could put a kid to want to go into a computer science field.

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.

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.

Cheapest and easiest repair service is yourself. These bumpers are crazy easy to replace. Buy this kit I have linked below. It comes with the bumpers and small security T8 screwdriver, only other thing you'll need is a credit or gift card you don't mind bending to safely pop the handgrip plastic off. You could use a small flathead screwdriver but it'll probably cut the plastic.

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.

u/MotionManTV · 2 pointsr/xboxone

I would suggest the hyper X cloud 2. I have had headsets that are cheaper and headsets that are several hundred dollars more (Astro) and I can assure you the sound quality is on par with more expensive headphones, the comfort is the best in gaming headset, the mic is also really good both in sound and in convenience as it's removable and easy to reposition. also the convenience of having the USB sound card in case you ever want to use it on PC is a nice bonus. Even the packaging is top notch lol.

You will want the headset adaptor for the controller though as it is easier to adjust volume settings (although this can be done in the guide)

69.99 Amazon UK

(It also comes in red but I prefer gun metal)

14.99 Amazon UK for the headset adaptor


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/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.

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.

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] (https://www.amazon.com/Xbox-One-Play-Charge-Kit/dp/B00DBDPOZ4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1474487379&sr=8-1&keywords=xbox+one+play+and+charge). 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.

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.

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.

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/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 =)

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 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 :)

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.

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.

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/turbomolli · 1 pointr/Vive

That tmx wheel is pretty entry level wheel and pedals are horrible and no clutch.

I recommend to go atleast t300rs or tx but those also have poor pedals. But you can buy tx base + rim + better thrustmaster pedals.

Something like this:

t300 and tx are belt driven wheels and those are much smoother than new logitech wheels wich are basicly old g27 wheels with new colors.

u/ChunkyThePotato · 1 pointr/xboxone

Extra $200? The Sunset Overdrive bundle is the same price as a standard Xbox One ($350). The only difference is that it comes with Sunset Overdrive for free, and it's white.

Bundles I'd recommend: Halo MCC Bundle, Assassin's Creed Unity/Black Flag Bundle (with kinect), Advanced Warfare Bundle (1tb hard drive), and Sunset Overdrive Bundle.

Edit: It seems like the price of the Sunset Overdrive bundle and the Advanced Warfare bundle went up significantly because of low stock on Amazon. They are normally $350 and $450 respectively. If you want either of these bundles, I recommend looking at sellers other than Amazon until they replenish their stock.

u/doorknob60 · 1 pointr/xboxone

Yeah. The Xbox One S has an infared blaster I'm pretty sure. So it should work with pretty much any TV. That's how it controls cable boxes if you use that.

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/The-Shadowcatt · 2 pointsr/forza

If you can find the tx with the leather wheel and better pedals it makes it an even better setup. The price is generally much cheaper than buying everything separate but I don't think it's available in all regions. As a TX owner you will not regret buying this wheel.

> I originally was looking forward to the fact that I wouldn't need to use the Xbox 1 controller to watch something and have the TV remote but this not being able to switch profiles is a total deal breaker.

I bought one of these and love it. It is a huge step up from an xbox media remote .


I set up my xbox to turn my tv/receiver on and off and then use that remote for everything else.

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).

u/centenary · 2 pointsr/simracing

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

u/xKenkz · 3 pointsr/gaming

So in terms of sound, you can attach headphones straight into the aux jack on the controller if you have a newer one, or buy a headphone stereo audio adapter if you have an older controller and the headphones/headset plugs into that and gives you both game sound and voice chat.

Monitor wise, get anything with under 5ms response time and you only need 60hz refresh rate as Xbox can only display a maximum of 60 frames per second (fps) so don't listen to anything trying to suggest you need a 144hz monitor as this is just a waste of money for a console, brands like BenQ, Asus, Samsung all make very nice monitors, I'll link a few below, note they will be UK links to Amazon as that's where I'm from.

Note the bottom one, the Samsung, does have speakers, so for this one you can just plug the HDMI in and use the speakers from the monitor, or turn the volume down to nothing and use headphones if you would prefer.

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).

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):

A few companies make clips for the controller that will fasten the controller to the phone.

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/V1RU5-13 · 2 pointsr/headphones

If you look closely at the plug you'll notice there are 4 separate metal contacts (TRRS) instead of 3 (TRS) see this image

That extra contact is for the microphone, smartphones can utilize this as standard, letting you make hands-free calls, but will need an adapter cable to work on separate headphone and mic jacks on a PC (like this)

As for the xbox, depending on which you have there adapters for those too, this for xbox one controllers and a combo of this and this for an xbox 360 controller

As for whether you'd be better off with separate headphone and mic, absolutely, of course you would be, I can't imagine polaroid branded headphones sounding any good at all, yes they are indeed usable for all your intended applications with the adapters I linked but sound quality will be poor, especially mic quality from the tiny thing built into the cable. If that bothers you in any way, then head over to the sticky thread for advice on what to get instead, otherwise those adapters should work fine, even if they come in at just as much, if not more than the headphones cost themselves.

Well it depends, I got it for 5 GBP physical copy on PC with a personal discount. Was originally 20 GBP, I live in the UK.

It's currently 50% off for the Standard Edition and 40% off for the Digital Deluxe Edition which includes the Season Pass.


If however you happen to live in the US or any other country I can't guarantee the same deals and offers will be available. The price will obviously vary per country.

So just in case you are from the UK, I got the game on PC DVD from GAME. If you are again in the UK but on XBOX One you can find it cheap at second hand in shops like CeX.

If you live in the US here's the cheapest place I found it and it's for XBOX One. Again, I live in the UK so I don't know many US Stores.

You're welcome. And FWIW, a refurb Denon AVR-X1300W for $320 would be a solid receiver upgrade with better room correction and all of the 4k HDCP 2.2 and HDR compatibility you need. A 500 GB Xbox One S with Battlefield 1 (currently on sale) for $250 could serve as a standalone 4k HDR blu ray player and streaming device if you don't want to use the built in apps.

Just some upgrade options to consider down the road. It wouldn't cost $1000's. Until then, enjoy the new tv. I'm super jealous of the OLED.

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.

How long is a while? Except for a few super branded titles, most games are steeply discounted within 6 months of being released. Titanfall for example was released in JanuaryMarch at $60 as a major console selling game. It's now on Amazon brand new for $25.

If you're going to be sitting on them for more than a couple months, you can do much better than 33% off.

User reviews are 6.2 for Titanfall 1, 8.2 for Titanfall 2. Critic reviews are generally a little better for the second game as well.






User reviews on Amazon are noticeably higher for the second game.


Honestly, the mp is the most important part of this game, so I can't see a disparity of this size existing unless people think the mp is at least as good as TF1's.


If people believed TF2 had a better SP (since it has one) but a worse MP I can't see the reviews for TF2 being better this consistently.

Stereo Headset Adapter plugs into the controller you then plug any headset with a 3.5mm cable into that and get audio wirelessly through your controller.

Other option is if you have a pair of speakers with a 3.5mm or RCA jacks on it to then buy a DAC Digital SPDIF converter. This is USB powered and plugs into your Xbox One SPDIF port, you then plug your speakers that either have a 3.5mm plug or RCA jacks into this and voila you get audio out of your speakers without the need of having to use headphones or a stereo headset adapter into the controller.

For the HDMI to DVI cable try something like this, any one will work doesn't have to be super quality

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.

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)

I bought one of these to attach my phone to my Xbox One controller. When my Stadia controller arrived, I tried it on Stadia, and while slightly more snug than on the Xbone controller, I can confirm that it does fit and works like a charm. I bet this one is a lot cheaper than the claw that Google sells.

I have a set up similar to this! I’ll be going on a 7 hour train trip in a few days so I’ll definitely be using it.

If anyone’s interested, it’s this mount. It works perfectly on an Xbox One or Steelseries Nimbus controller. It has a little clip on the back so you can leave it on a table and watch movies from it.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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,

Valid points, you won’t regret your choice!

I got something similar to this for my PS4 controller and I absolutely love it.


I can’t speak for this model exactly, but a clip of this sort really makes gaming on the phone more enjoyable.

I'd say go for it. You can pick it up for pretty cheap on Amazon.

For two dollars more you can get the digital version.

Gamestop has it for 10 dollars pre-owned.

All in all, a very good game with a lot of content to unlock and get you through it.

You know it doesn't really help your question, but as someone planning to buy an xboxonein the next couple of weeks, I just found you can still buy day one edition from amazon. You save 3 cents too! http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00CMQTVK0?cache=0e6cc5cded2e1ff272345a4656c7ceee&pi=SY200_QL40&qid=1406920344&sr=8-3#ref=mp_s_a_1_3

LOL it's new on Amazon for about $150 less than the original price. https://www.amazon.com/Xbox-One-Kinect-Day/dp/B00CMQTVK0
