My controller was the same. I went to the MS store near me and exchanged it with a new one no questions asked! Idk if you will get the same results at any other store, but i would suggest trying! My new controller has had no problems whatsoever. I'm pretty sure it was mainly the first batch of xbone controllers that had this problem.
Also I heard you can exchange online free of charge, but I am not entirely positive.
Oh that's good. I got my day one edition from amazon so I'm basically stuck with what I have. It's not that bad but for the price and time since the 360 I expected much better. The 360 controllers I had since launch were still perfect even until last November when I sold it. I have the titanfall controller preordered to take some use off my day one one, plus the design has grown on me and it isn't as bad looking as when I initially saw it
The vibration mechanism already broken in my spare controller I got...I haven't been pleased. Headset microphone doesn't work half the time, party system broken, interface painfully slow. Constantly freezes. Kinect microphone stopped working with this last patch. I've been an xbox man through and through but my patience has worn thin.
I have to call BS or you got a lemon, Mine has none of those issues, not one.
Ok. You do realize that no matter where you get the controllers, they still won't be great b/c M$ didn't make them to last long.
At least with CowBoom you can return it and test it. Just b/c you test it in person (not sure how you'd do that unless you bring your Xbox One to the meeting) doesn't mean it'll work long.
Sure buy a new one. It's only $15 more (w/o tax).
That was my original point. MS built them like crap, so they don't hold up.
I have heard this is hit or miss though, so I, personally, would rather buy on craigslist (be able to test it, hold it, feel it) if I were going to buy one, which I'm not. I game mostly on my PC, and I have a DualShock 4 for that, so what do I need a POS X1 controller for?
