Engadget Review

The Xbox One's controller is mostly a refined version of the last-gen gamepad, with the new shoulder buttons being the only real step backward.

Pros
  • Great battery life
  • The best analog sticks on any gamepad
  • Rumble triggers!
Cons
  • Shoulder buttons are cumbersome
  • Requires AA batteries
