This was unnecessary. Xbox Series doesn't need to match Sony tit for tat. The Xbox controller is great as it is. No need to hype up something that doesn't need hyping. Differentiate your platform elsewhere. No one buys a console for a controller. I felt very uncomfortable watching this. It feels forced.

The Dual Sense is a value add for the PS5 and Sony did a great job there. Why do this, MS?

you are reading too much into this. they have to market their console and controller 10 days before launch. and thats exactly what they are doing.

EDIT: just watched the video. wow at the cringe. i couldnt last more than 2 minutes. that one guy looks like he wants to make love with it. bizarre video.

No bait here. I just think this is a dumb and unnecessary video. The Series X|S controller is a foot note. It was the perfect controller. The fact that they didn't need to radically re-engineer it is a testament to how well-designed the controller is. This just feels forced and a response to the Dual Sense hype.

It looks like its got some decent improvements. I'm just glad I don't have to buy any more pads for my current setup. I've already got 3 with my One X : )

Imagine being asshurt over a video of a plastic shell because it's not your favorite plastic shell.

Think you are projecting. Their Elite Series 1 and 2 controllers were just like this.
