The controller is fantastic and I love the unnecessarily huge light. It's to represent who player 1, 2, etc. is, but it doesn't need to be that huge. I think it looks cool though.

I know it's not terribly convenient, but you could just point the light down if it's reflecting off of shit.

Thinking about it...that controller probably has a settings menu I haven't even looked at...I keep meaning to mute the speaker on it sometimes.

There's no way to dim the controller yet, unfortunately. Seems like a really basic fix that can be done in one firmware update.

On the other hand, I about died laughing when I saw that Microsoft still expects us to put fucking double A batteries in our controllers. What year is this?

Isn't the light supposed to work with the camera for some sort of motion capture stuff?

ya. It works the same way the Move wand thingy worked. The light doesn't bother me. When you're holding the controller, it points away anyway, so I hardly notice it. I was even thinking it could be cool to integrate the colours into the games somehow if the light was more visible in your hands

I guess Sony has been mentioning to developers that they can code out the light, so there's that.

A year where every type of AA battery available lasts far longer than the 4 hour PS4 controller? Enloops, anyone?

X1's user interface is quite a bit better than PS4's, both in looks and function. PS4's multiplats are all better than X1's in both resolution and performance. In my opinion, the X1's launch exclusives are better than the PS4's.

All that said, I think both are great. The graphics and performance of every game I've played on both systems (aside from COD, which I regret buying) is so much better than present gen games, and these are just launch titles. I honestly can't wait to see how impressive games coming this next year (Infamous, Titanfall, Destiny, etc) will be compared to what we have right now. I'm really happy with both.

With this magical invention called a usb cable (Microsoft ought to make use of it at some point), I have the option to play forever plugged in and never have to spend a dime on batteries until I need another $3 cable from eBay a year down the road Alternatively, their lithium ion takes charges like a champ. I've never noticed any perceivable change in battery life with my PS3 controllers over several years.

I will always take something rechargeable, over double As. Even if it dies in four hours.

Enloops are rechargeable, and you never need to plug your controller into anything for them to charge (or require you to buy an extension like I had to buy, because the one the PS4 comes with is unusable for anyone who games from their couch). It's a non-issue for me, both have pros and cons.

Personally, I can take an hour of sitting 6 feet from my television on the days I choose to game longer than four hours in a row in order to save $30 on shit Microsoft was too cheap to include at launch.

The survivor 2299 website was a hoax folks...looks like a reddit group did it.

That 'Fallout 4 Teaser Website' Was A Hoax

That's hugely disappointing. It's probably my most anticipated game.
