@somf69 I had one of those as a kid, lol! It was this triangle shaped thing with driving, pong and a shooting game, right? Or maybe I’m thinking of something else…either way it was fun and I loved playing it. I think it’s still in my parents basement.
I think it came out just before Atari? Or it was a cheap (and poor) alternative to it. Then I got a Ti-99/4A The late 70’s/early 80’s felt like such a revolution in gaming and home computers.
These controllers have horrible stick drift issues. I went through 4 of them while under warranty, they were sued for the issue and settlement was extended warranty. For this price barely over a regular controller I wouldn’t blame anyone but anything 100+ is robbery. The 3 is around the corner and I’d be mind blown if they didn’t fix the issue.
@troy As ice992 said, it’s not bluetooth that is supported by a bluetooth compliant device, it’s some bastardized Xbox only version of bluetooth. I have an OG Elite and it only works wirelessly with Xboxen and PCs with the Xbox Wireless USB adapter.
@stinks one of the big features of the Elite is that you can swap out the analog sticks, dpads, and back paddles for different sizes/lengths, etc. The bundle includes even more different items you can swap between
I have the second gen version of this, and it’s notorious for having a slightly non-responsive A button. It probably misses inputs about 1 in 20 times for me. Not sure if the original had the same specific problem, but I would be a little wary of a refurb here - this line has had quality control issues that seem inherent to the design. A shame, because I really like how it feels in the hand.
Wonder if they are ever going to ship this. Of any purchase I have made on Meh, this is the one I am the most excited about. But it has not even shipped after 8 days? I don’t think I remember that ever happening before.
@Beruud got me wondering too. Took 8 days for a shipping notification, then it says the DHL people got it and processed it midday on the 28th, tendered to delivery service in the wee morning hours of the 29th in a city only 30 minutes from me, and nothing after that. I could have just driven down there and picked it up if they were going to ship it on the back of a tortoise. Ordered the weighted blanket from meh and a flashlight from morningsave a week later than the controller and already been enjoying them for a few days now. Blanket came FedEx I think, flashlight USPS maybe? It was in my mailbox. DHL doesn’t have the best reputation, maybe that’s the problem.
@Stormchaser Yeah, took forever. They average about 3 days to ship something, then it is usually 3-4 days to get. I am cool with that. But something must of been up with the controllers, because it is the longest it has been to ship. ||| Yes, mine is shipping via USPS, and it has been sitting in a facility in OH for since the 29th…? This hole thing has been odd. I realize, meh, cast off items, scratch and dent, overstock, blah… but this thing from start to finish has been very un-meh like.
