Xbox One Controller Features
The Xbox One Wireless Controller has seen massive improvements from its previous iteration, the Xbox 360 Controller. The new Xbox One controller is much sleeker and the colors have been toned down compared to the previous version.
The most notable design feature that captures your attention immediately is the asymmetric positions of the Xbox One’s analog sticks. This has stuck from the first version of the controller. The design and placements have not changed but the analog sticks internals has been upgraded and improved. The analog sticks are now more ergonomic and comfortable to use and have been designed in such a way that your fingers don’t easily slip from the rubber grips.
The directional pad and face buttons have been greatly improved and made responsive. It is more comfortable to use and pressing the buttons gives you clicky tactile feedback so you can play games without constantly looking at your controller.
The Xbox One Wireless Controller is battery powered and it uses two AA batteries that will usually last about 40 hours of game time. It is highly recommended that you use rechargeable batteries so as not to interrupt your gaming experience.
The controller has two ports that you can use to connect it with an external device. Most notably, it has a Micro USB port that you can use to connect your controller to your console or PC. It also has a headphone jack so you can plug in a pair of headphones to listen to your games in private.
The wireless capabilities of the Xbox One controller are achieved mainly through the Xbox Wireless System. Bluetooth is mainly if you want to use your controller for PC games. Xbox Wireless, on the other hand, is built into the Xbox console and its higher bandwidth allows you to connect up to four or more controllers without experiencing any input delay.
The advantage of the Xbox One Wireless Controller is that it is fully compatible with Windows. There is no need to install any software or drivers to make it work, you simply plug and play.
The Xbox One Wireless Controller is a solid and comfortable gaming controller that you can use in tandem with your Xbox or for PC gaming. The analog sticks, buttons, and triggers are very responsive, allowing you to play your favorite games smoothly.
