I know. I miss that deal. At least it's free shipping and not a bundle like GameStop is selling.

weird how the other retailers got a supply well ahead of Microsoft. I'm glad I was able to get the bundle deal and take the game back. I'm not dissapointed with the controller but I did think i would enjoy it more than I do. The paddles get activated too easily so I only use one or 2 paddles at the most. It also gets confusing with the paddles and the buttons and retraining your brain . maybe it's just because I'm old...er.

I take the paddles off and only use the shorter triggers. Its too easy to accidently press the paddles but its nice to have the option if needed. The best thing about the controller is the feel and quality. Ohhh, forgot about swapping out the dpad and analog sticks. Its not like the plastic ones the grind down.

Dude I know exactly what you mean. I couldn't get used to them. It's like if you barely touch the paddles it counts as a button press. Ended up spending more time thinking about what my hands were doing versus actually playing the game. I'm sure if you master it, it's awesome but wasn't for me. Ended up flipping it for a good profit though Smilie

paddle shifters are too sensitive, the circular dpad is pointless, and the tall triggers hurt your thumb/hand after long hours. basically a pretty useless overpriced controller at $150. Microsoft keeps stock low on purpose to make it seem like there is high demand and it keeps "selling out". 100% horse sheet.

otherwise if you are rich and have money to waste, this is the controller for you! I also have some ocean-front property in Utah to sell you! LMFAO

I dunno, I get a lot of mileage out of it for FPS games and have no issues with the paddles if using only two at a time. There is definitely a learning curve on it but it is well worth it imo.

It's useless because you don't know how to use it effectively? Your posts are useless...
