The NES Classic’s controller and this the SNES Classic’s is stated to be ” about 2 ft. longer than the cord on the NES Classic Controller.” The controller length was a huge issue for most people last time, seems that Nintendo has learned the lesson from the first time around.

KontrolFreek Ultra (PS4 / Xbox One) Next Gen Controller Accessory Mini Review

Kontrol Freek PS4 Xbox One

Kontrol Freek has become almost a common household name at this point in the gaming community, or at least it should be. Don’t invite me to your house if it isn’t yet. They are known for their many different analog stick accessories that help gamers win, but they also help with general accuracy for the everyday player. KontrolFreek accessories essentially plug into the top of an analog stick controller extending the stick and causing more precise movement to become possible. KontrolFreek will elevate the total length of the analog stick and add a higher spot to put your thumbs giving the user a better range of motion and allowing them to pull of more accurate shots in game.

Using the next-generation versions of this tech I found gameplay enhancements are not just for shooters. During my tests with the KontrolFreek FPSFreek Ultra several games were tested including: Battlefield 4, Call of Duty Ghosts, Need for Speed Rivals, Killzone Shadow Fall, Trials Fusion, and more. The KontrolFreek Ultra really seems to make the controller for the PS4 more comfortable to use especially with me having bigger hands. Thanks to KontrolFreek the sticks flowed a lot easier.

Using this product I honestly did notice myself aiming a lot faster on games. Now there’s definitely some downsides to these they do tend to fall off your controller from time to time and this can be really annoying especially if you’re in a huge streak on a game. Also tested the FPSFreek CQC which don’t elevate as high and they were better for a more accurate feel of the sticks mainly for more precise shots in game.

Custom Orders Available Here

Final Verdict:

In all, the KontrolFreek sticks for both the Xbox One and the PS4 are improving on what are great items from the previous console generation. Many pro gamers are familiar in and out of the MLG scene with these and some even swear by them. They provide better accuracy in game and a more precise feel when playing games they are at a competitive price so they aren’t hard to get a hold of and try out, perhaps you’ll end up adding them to your controller line as well.

Xbox Support Tells Customer Who Received Unfinished X1 Controller To Commit Return Fraud

xb1-broken-controller-592

GameFront has reported on a very interesting developing story out of the UK, where Microsoft has already had users pay $621 for replacement consoles and now have refused to refund an Xbox ONE controller that arrived unfinished unless the user paid for the shipping himself. On top of that, this was during the holiday season while MS was claiming to be sending console replacements in under 3 days for American customers, and telling UK customers they’d have to give up a security deposit of $621 while MS waited to receive their broken machine (which in many cases was forced to be shipped at the cost of the user). Beyond that, MS Support publicly took a strange turn for the worst when it actually suggested that this customer “just” buy a new X1 controller while waiting for the replacement to arrive (on top of paying for their own shipping) and then they were told to “just” return it and say it didn’t work – thereby committing return fraud.

Titanfall Xbox ONE Controller Revealed

The first limited edition Xbox One controller is themed in Titanfall. It looks very very cool (in my opinion), and makes us wonder if they will make a Titanfall Edition Xbox ONE Console with custom graphics as well.
