Hey, friends. If you upgraded from the Elite controller to 2.0, is it worth the leap? I'm thinking of burning the rest of my discounted credit on one for the new console.
I bought one and loved it. As soon as the criminally short warranty period (90days?!?!) passed it had serious drift issues in the left thumbstick.
Microsoft wouldn't do a damn thing except have me send it in for a refurb for another $100.
Lucky for me, I was able to return it via Google Shopping.
So, I know that Microsoft did not learn a thing from the first Elite and used the same cheap modules.
They won't support an obvious defect that they are responsible for.
So, I wouldn't purchase a premium accessory from them unless it was a deal and if you do, get the extended warranty.
I heard the latest batches of Elite v2 were silently fixed so it may not be an issue but fool me once.
