No it doesn't, or at least it's importance is hyperbole. In my whole play-through of the campaign, I didn't think once about the frame-rrate. Even if it's not locked at 60, I'm super glad I'm not cursed with this over-sensitivity to frame-rate. Game is fun and beautiful. Don't listen to that garbage.

And I'm not even a big fan of CoD. This one was really good though.

Haven't played the game, but I'm also one of the chosen ones that's blessed with obliviousness in regards to framerates. Honestly, playing gears 5 at 60fps vs gears 4 at 30fps (campaign) and I'm honestly not feeling this huge difference that everyone seems to praise.

I can definitely tell the difference between 30 and 60fps, and defintely prefer 60fps in fast paced games (though 30 is perfectly fine if the pacing is built around it). Hell, I even prefer to play the 30fps mode in the Witcher 3 and Forza Horizon 4 because the impact on the visuals in 60fps mode has a greater effect on my enjoyment than the framerate does.

that said, CoD still feels smooth, so I don't care. It definitely feels much better than 30fps. Calling the game's framerate a significant issues is ridiculous, imo. I honestly never even noticed any stutter because I wasn't looking for it.

Think the controller from my new 1X is toast. Just randomly loses connection, usually right away. During initial setup I had to turn it off and on several times just to get through the setup. After that it seemed to be fine then cut out while playing COD. Used my previous controller and it's fine, which I guess is good that it's the controller and not the Xbox. Not sure if I can do anything on getting the controller replaced. Maybe directly through Xbox? I feel like I had an issue with a small part before and Best Buy wanted the entire thing back. Yea I'm not packing everything up again just for a controller.

The controller that my X came with was broken as well, the right dpad only worked like 60% of the time. Brand New right out of the box. I ordered my X off of eBay and there was no way I was send it all back.

My One X controller broke awhile back. They feel cheaply made compared to my other controllers.
The gen 2 Xbox One controllers (ones with bluetooth) are absolutely more cheaply made than the launch ones.

The plastic casing feels thinner on the newer ones compared to the original IMO.
Not only that but I have had more than one gen 2 controllers have issues right out of the box. The build quality AND the QA process both seem to be much worse.

I haven't ever had any problems with my Xbox One (including Elite), Xbox 360, DS3 controllers, ever. I have had 2 DS4 controllers. First one with the release DS4, no problems at all, but traded the system in for my PS Pro. My DS4 that came with my PS Pro, the left stick, pushing up, stopped working for some reason and ended up buying a C40 TR controller to replace it. But it was totally fine, no issues other than up on the stick stopped working.

I think it comes down to me not putting in as much game time/hours to actually put any wear in tear into the controllers. Not to mention, I don't play games like Dark Souls, so I don't think I get much action out of the hardware compared to many.

I'll be Xbox-less until next gen.
My young nephew pulled my X off the tv stand onto a hardwood floor. Essentially it's f***ed.

No way am I spending $500 on a new X when there's a new one coming next year.

I mean I am just waiting for them to make the dashboard more responsive. There are times when it so god damn sluggish even on One X. I wonder if swapping the internal drive for an SSD will help.
