Accessory prices announced and it's gonna be ugly.
Xbox One Controller, Headset, and Play and Charge Kit Priced - IGN
The Xbox One's wireless controller will cost $59.99, and adding the Play and Charge Kit will set you back a total of $74.99. If you just need an extra charge kit, that will cost $24.99. Lastly, the Chat Headset is priced at $24.99, which you may want since Microsoft won't be including a headset with the Xbox One.
I just bought a new 360 controller at Best Buy last Friday because it was on "sale". Normal price of 50 bucks, it was 40. Still pricey as hell but these controllers are freaking fragile. I don't ever throw my controllers and I always keep it in the best condition possible.Quote:
Each of the Xbox One accessories cost $10 more than Microsoft's current price for their Xbox 360 counterparts.
It's just with Call of Duty, I click on the left thumbstick to run so much that well, that part tends to break more often than not. It just clicks and then my character stops moving. The same thing with NHL games, I use the poke check button so much that my right bumper stops working.. lol. Even though I'm only replacing my controllers at least once every 8-10 months, it just adds up big time.
I won't be surprised if the Playstation 4 controllers will cost just as much. I'm just sad that these companies are trying to squeeze every last penny out of us every chance they get. The bottom line is... a controller should not cost as much as a new video game. That's just ridiculous.
