It's expensive, yes, but I don't regret spending that money at all. This is hands down the best controller I have ever used (for context, I'm a 38yo gamer who has played on pretty much every system since the Atari days). It exudes quality. Feels great, looks great, handles great. The standard XB1 controller is pretty damn good, but going back to it after using one of these makes it feel cheap and nasty. Takes a while to get used to the back paddles, but once you have that sussed, you will never look back! If you play XB1, or PC games that are better with controller, then get this! You will not regret it!
