    Really dont like the 'share' button and all it stands for, other than that it looks pretty similar to the current standard.

    Re: Microsoft reveals Xbox One X controller

    Would it be possible for Microsoft to release a controller that can charge removable rechargeable batteries, similar to how a PS4 controller charges is own internal battery? It would be so convenient...
    What challenges would there be for them to do that?
    Honest question...

    Re: Microsoft reveals Xbox One X controller

    As a PC gamer that uses a DS4 Controller, I would really like to see a touchpad integrated into the Xbox controller. It's just so convenient to handle interactions with the PC when the game crashes or when I'm trying to switch games from emulators that don't have controller-friendly interfaces. In fact I chose to buy a DS4 controller knowing the compatibility issues and all just for that feature cuz I really do prefer an Xbox controller when it comes down to comfort.

    If "removable rechargeable batteries" is what you want then look no further and buy a common Xbox One controller, then buy rechargeable AA Batteries for it. The Sony PS4 Controller batteries are not removable, at least not easily. That said this new Xbox Series X controller seems to have integrated battery by the photos of it, just like the DS4 from Sony

    I meant to charge the batteries using the controller, not having to remove them and charge them elsewhere.
    Right now you can't plug in a USB cable and charge the batteries inside the controller, you have to remove them and charge them using a Rechargeable Battery Charger.

    To be fair the Xbox controller is the best in this regard as if batteries die while playing it's quicker to just swap them and you don't have to fiddle with cables that both restrict you and create a possibility of tension on the cable pulling the controller and causing a premature death. They chose not to add cost and complexity to the controller by not allowing those removable batteries to be charged inside it. That would be useful when they don't die while you're playing and you want the convenience to put the controller on a dock and have it charged overnight.

    That said, the PS4 Controller manages to pull out with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery inside, trackpad, LED lights, gyroscope and Accelerometer and I think there'd a Mic; all that, inside a smaller controller that usually costs less. So really is no excuse. It would really be nice to have a controller with easily replaceable batteries that could be charged while inside the controller.
