Why are these so desired, its just a controller with more buttons, right? Its like half the price of an xbox one, maybe it does more than other controllers?

It's because people think they're 2pro gamerz who need a controller made out of kevlar and special grade ESR steel for half the price of the console to be good. IGN and all of the other sites they visit daily told them it's a good investment, so why not? They don't question why it's nearly three times the price of a regular controller, or why the regular controller couldn't be better in the first place.

It's clearly made for a niche market that is interested in modding controllers, similar to how people in fgc go out if their way to buy special fight sticks, or modded ones, etc.

I almost bought the phat Vita for no reason at all...until I remember that (A) used to be about $80+...

 

That's also one of the better prices for Rune Factory 4. Great game for the life/farming games for vets and newcomers (like I was) alike. 

 

Maybe I'll pick up an elite controller so I can dodge and cast artes faster in Tales of Zestiria...whenever...

controller wont help since zesty has a really bad framerate and lags.  Especially when multiple party members and enemies are all casting at the same time.  You'll never see it lag more then when fighting pixies.  Even worse if you link an encounter.  There were many times where the audio was ahead of what was happening on screen.

Most people wont understand or care for the elite controller. If you dont enjoy collecting and modding controllers there is no point in trying to understand why people like them and feel that its a good value.

Just stick with your plain black controller and stop drinking the haterade :-P


I was just not sure how it felt or why it was more. Sounds like its made sturdy and some people would probably benefit from playing with it. I was just wondering since when it comes in people seem to be all over it.

I wasnt trying to start an argument or show hate, was just wondering.

You were playing this on PS4 or PC? Things do get a little wonky on PS4 but after the 60 FPS mod and some patches, the PC version seems to run pretty well for me...well it helps to have a Core i7 and a GTX770...well...Zestiria's graphics probably don't even fully utilize a laptop's video card.

I don't think you need cutting edge graphics for zesty. It's just horribly optimized.

Yea sorry. My last phrase wasn't directly to you or anyone in particular. Its for all the people out there who like to talk smack because they personally dont feel its worth it.

Sorry it came off that way.

I thought about it for about 10 minutes earlier as there was another VG condition for $20 more too.  I just never play PS4 when I have one.  Good luck to the buyer!

And it took a few people and utterly a few lines of code to fix a lot of the PC version's problems. 

 

At least with the latest patch, Sorey doesn't look like he's trying to get a boner in front of people in certain cutscenes...

I just released the(G) PS4 Start Wars LE Console - the Vader one at 316.79. A good price for the LE version and appears to be a dinger. This one didnt discount to my knowledge at the retailers and stayed mostly at $399. Had buyers remorse as I've spent way too much this xmas. Good luck to whoever gets it. Should be coming back up on AWD soon.  Here is the description: 

 

Condition: Used - Good - Downloadable content (DLC) or codes for online play may require additional purchase. Item is in original packaging, but packaging has damage. Cosmetic damage (Less than 10%) on the top of the item. Cosmetic damage (Less than 10%) on the sides of the item.

Not a Warehouse Deal, but I just purchased this Final Fantasy XIII Xbox 360 console for $54 shipped. According to the listing, everything is included. Console, harddrive, controller, (though it's a black one, not the console bundle one.) power supply. No game, though. Good, reputable seller, too. Might have been some price mistake, or just liquidating stock, or there might be something wrong with that kind of console or something that I'm unaware of.

 

 

i did noticed this bundle and i emailed the seller couple days ago. Here is the response from the seller "I'm sorry but I cant give you the photos. We are part of a pawn franchise & they have that item pre-packed & stored at different location."

May the bundle be with you:)

Well, at that price, just stripping the console bare will give me more than my money back, so the risk is almost nothing, I figure.
