    Fallout 4 is leaving game pass in either 2 weeks or a month, they're not sure which, according to an article on TA.

    I just bought the Elite controller for the Xbox One. Most I have ever spent on a controller. I hope I love it.

    Out of curiosity can I pair this with my PC - like I can with my Xbox One default controller? I sometimes pair it when I am playing a PC game that really benefits from the controller (Tomb Raider, Witcher 3)

    @Farley2k If youíve got the Xbox One controller usb dongle thing itíll work. Otherwise no cause it doesnt have built in Bluetooth.

    Well that is just silly. The default controller does have it but the 3 times more expensive controller doesn't? Grrr...

    Thatís not great a game of this length should be on game pass for ages before removing. Itís not been on there that long.

    @Farley2k Only cos the current default controller is newer than the Elite, I guess. The default controller that came with the original xbox one did not. They just haven't updated the Elite.

    Still hoping we see a revised elite controller at that XO event in a couple of weeks but also think they may just roll improvements into the pad for the Nextbox

    Then I may still need to keep my Xbox 1 controller for those PC occasions. It isn't often but every once in awhile it is handy.

    Re the event, what are you guys hoping to hear about ?

    I just want Gears 5 news, although happy to see how Halo is coming along.

    Yep. Gears, Halo & Crackdown would do me.

    Some new stuff would be nice.

    Next gen stuff would surely be E3, but tgen they have mentioned it this year already, so who knows. I don't want next gen too soon though, i'm still loving my one x.

    I think 343 have said Infinite won't be there, which obviously makes me more than a little sad. But it's probably a fair way off anyway, so a proper deep dive on Crackdown and a new look at Gears 5 will surely take the edge off. Apparently Gears is huge in Mexico, so hopefully it gets a decent showing.

    Other than that, I think we'll probably see some acquisition announcements (Obsidian, if that's final, and people in the know seem to think there'll be more). Oh, and I'd like dates for Ori, Ashen and Below, and maybe a sneak peek at something from one of the recent additions - Ninja Theory, maybe?

    I got it Saturday and played with it a bit over the weekend and well I didn't find it better than the Xbox One S controller. I like the weight of the S controller so I even tried shutting my eyes and having the kids put one controller in each hand - and I couldn't tell which was which so that didn't make me happy.

    In fact generally the elite felt the same as the S controller so I couldn't see keeping it. Oh well.

    @Farley2k

    Mess about with the calibration of the triggers for racing vs shooting games

    mess about with the paddles and try different combos

    mess about with the glorious d-pad

    it IS expensive and maybe it's a case of the emperor's new clothes and hype....i hope not but it's possible but either way, I love it.

    I will play around with it a bit more tonight so it might click for me.

    I certainly think it is a great controller, I just am not feeling like it is worth the cost - for me.

    I'd love an Elite pad but £110 is insane to me.

    I'm surprised you couldn't tell the difference in weight, tbh.

    I've used mine for hundreds of hours.

    I've spent 40 quid on games that last 20.

    It's all relative.

    Bad comparison as you could still play those same games on the standard pad, which I think is pretty great.

    Would make sense, they've been pushing indie bundles in quite a few spotlight sales recently so they were probably testing the water

    (Edit: How do forum links work? Tried to link to a Digerati bundle in the MS store and it kept malforming)
