Id like to get the X, someday.. but as much as i play on xbox (rarely) its just not worth the price. That $500 price tag...
just dropped $1200 on other “toys” this month, and ill be using them a lot more than the xbox.
I was a diehard xbox guy (original) and pretty much quit and went back to sony with the ps3/4. Only stuff i really buy for xbox now is exclusives or deep deep sale stuff.
Love the elite controller i picked up, but battery life is horrible... and even a new battery pack seems to disconnect from the xbox (4 feet away) at about 50%. Hit the xbox logo again and it connects and works again.
When the X drops around bf, i will most likely look into getting it.
Maybe try updating the controller firmware, it's in the controller options (yeah, I know, it is a thing in this day and age). Be sure to do that for all of your controllers. They fixed a disconnect issue a few years back and it is a lot better now, maybe yours is just out of date and it will help. I do know they added some features for the Elite you had to update to get when it came out. I love the Elite controller, it is part of the reason why I often lean towards the XB1 version of games even though I have a PS4 Pro vs. my XB1 S. The battery life of the official battery packs (don't use third party, they suck) in an Elite should be significantly longer than a corresponding PS4 controller charge (which has a built in battery) - you should be getting well over 10 hours.
