If anyone is looking for an Elie controller backup check this one out


You get the paddles that you can program on the fly (though you can't save different profiles, it does keep the changes if you power off), interchangeable sticks, trigger settings, and a nice tension to the sticks. There is a detachable housing for the individually detachable paddles.

It's only a little more expensive than a standard controller ($80), and comes with a case.

It feels pretty good too and so far it's a recommend. I've been pleasantly surprised. Kinda a no-brainer for those who can't get their hands on an elite...

Not quite Tails’s hue but close enough...

Anyone for tennis? Speaking of which, Sega needs to release a new tennis game.

Speaking of that, why hasn’t MS tried to make some of their own sports games again? I’m sports licenses are not cheap to come by now days though.
I remember playing in tournaments in Links on XSN. I feel that was a little ahead of its time. Like to see a return.

For the price of a Series X, that better be one helluva headset!

Are they ever going to update and fix the sound playback problems on the Series X? It was just disc playback before. Now the last couple weeks it’s also during streaming, the background sound and musical score sound comes and goes. So damn annoying.

I have a couple issues on the S.

1. Plugging in a headset via the 3.5m jack after you start a game gives the audio a horrible distorted sound.
2. Using the official MS plug and play charge kit with the 3.5mm headset plugged in makes the controller constantly turn off.

I’m also having another issue with my Series X controller not wanting to recognize my rechargeable batteries. It acts like it’s dead. Try the batteries in my other controllers works fine. I have to keep moving the batteries around and eventually the controller turns completely on.
