So I’ve got $100 Best Buy gift card begging to be spent. I’m all like “hold up, free money, lemme see what I can use you for”. So I went thru the motions…new game? Nah, The Division will be here soon and it’s already paid for. Getting anything else right now would be a waste, especially with Rocket League being so awesome. Ok, how bout a new headset? Meh, my Turtle Beach XOFours are doing their job, no complaints really.
So then I land on a controller. My kids, I only have 4 btw, have been bugging for me to get another controller for a few months, so I figure Daddy can get an elite controller. The money isn’t an issue, I’m just a little uptight with spending sometimes and now is one of those times.
So, with the help of our very own @Gunny, I decided to make a poll. So what say you, GRG? If you have or have used an Elite Controller, is it worth the hefty price tag? Vote below and add a comment with pros and cons if you would be so kind!
- Worth it!
- Rent a hooker instead!
After owning one I would probably pay $200 for it.
I am not voting as. I don’t quite understand the need for an elite though people love them.
Not needs. Wants.
It becomes a need after you use one. Seriously I can’t go back to a regular controller. There is that much difference in precision, feel, quality, and comfort.
With kids using the system, I’d definitely get it for the stronger build and material quality perspective alone. Now granted, I don’t let my son use my controller, so kinda moot point, but I don’t trust his little punk ass not to break it.
Other than build quality, I do like the additional heft it has and the options such as trigger stops. I haven’t played with the paddles yet, but have heard those who do love it.
Just do it! Do it NOOOOWWWW!
I love the trigger locks and having my jump button on the bottom of the controller. However hookers and blow can make for a wonderful time as well.
I’d get both just to make sure.
Worth buying 100%. You will never go back.
I say you still rent the hooker and go buy you an elite controller that you can use while she uses you.
I think it’s worth it. the weight and feel is awesome trigger stops a must and the custom joysticks. who needs control freeks anymore. plus price is better than a scuf. I haven’t got used to the paddles yet can’t make myself retrain yet. but wouldn’t trade mine for nothing
Take you pick. This is what the $150 will get ya…
The second one may have no teeth…just sayin
Ok so I picked up an elite. Thanks for all your help, especially digital. Those pics steered me in the right direction
I dunno, strange is strange. I’d hit those chicks.
BTW @TexasReaperCrew, spend 5 minutes with the paddles, you tard.
Excellent choice, my only regret is I waited so long to pick it up. The controller not the hooker.
The hookers you get weekly.
Got my shovel out and dug up this thread!
Has anyone bought the updated Elite Controller? Thinking of getting one for the extra mappings for Elite Dangerous and Sea of Thieves. I found an “Alliance Server” to cheese my levels up to Pirate Legend. They use Discord for comms so I have my game chat set to Push To Talk but no buttons to map it to.
What is the quality like for the Elite Controller? I know @Lala_Calamari had to fix his . How is it holding up?
