    Why are the controllers such a scam and does Microsoft plan on fixing them?


    I have gone through so many Xbox controllers with stick drift it is ridiculous. I purchased the Xbox Series S just to have my controller conveniently get stick drift exactly 1 month after the 1-year warranty expired. These controllers run $60 a pop. Is Microsoft ever going to create a product that last longer than a year? Thoughts?

    :)

    You know newgen controllers are out right? Keep in mind analog sticks have been around forever drift happens depending on use

    With driftless capabilities because you can recalibrate for deadzones on the device

    They cost a bunch

    200 plus unless you buy wired

    Hall effects controllers came out last year

    And a load of new features multi profile custom button mapping

    Back padels

    Haptic feedback

    Adaptive triggers etc

    Elite series 2 controller

    My elite series 2 rb button doesnt work and i cant find a replacement button how do i fix this
    Microsoft knew the controllers were defective and still sold them as a good product. they wont do anything to fix your controller because its most like out of warranty thats why the warranty was so short. The whole elite series 2 was a scam

    Reset Alert Confirmation?

    Obvious scam is obvious. Why would Microsoft ask for your password and details it smells of a scam.

    Every Xbox controller I own ends up having a disfunctional right bumper button, sometimes within 3 months of getting the controller

    Cliff,

    I purchased all of my controllers from Microsoft. That is why I am asking on the forums for help. Since my controllers are out of warranty, is there any way to get them fixed?
