He's always pretty spot on, but I've got to say that he doesn't know patents very well. Esp since that VR controller patent is specifically a design patent. The images in that patent are much more different from the WMR controllers than they are from the Oculus Touch controllers. In the patents, the tracking ring actually slants around the back of the hand, whereas the WMR controllers protrude forward. They actually aren't even close in design! For instance, the other patent award that showed up at the same time was the 2-tone design from the Cyberpunk Xbox One controller... very specific.

Anyway, B Sams did answer a question for me this past Friday about how he felt about VR on Xbox in the year 2021, in general. I was actually surprised of his positivity! My name drop (he can never pronounce it right) @ 23:25.

I wish the elite stuck with AA batteries. Just the easiest option. Buy eneloop rechargeables or just get a bunch of cheap AA off Amazon.

Electronics that come with batteries that can't be replaced is the dumbest idea ever. I just had to replace my cell phone with the exact same model. Only thing wrong was the battery was shot. Found the exact same phone for super cheap so I just replaced the whole thing.

Where did it say they were forced? He didn't even say the partnership was the only reason.

And of course any brand, how on earth would you limit it to just one.

I was looking up pricing for the Xbox One now that the Series S/X are out. But I can't even find ANY available. At the Microsoft Store, they are sold out. Then I saw at Best Buy, they removed Xbox One Console from this menu, which is used to be in there. Series X/S and PS5 both have a "console" line. As does the PS4. So I guess the Xbox One is dOne?

They discontinued them a while back.
