MS uses a proprietary setup for their pads that isn't bluetooth, it means you can't just buy a wireless pad and use it without an xbox unless you give them more money, it's the same reason they use to sell the battery pack separate from the pad instead of just including it to make one of the most expensive pads in the market.
so the only reason MS don't use bluetooth and the normal adaptors because then you could use anyones and not give them more money.
The new Gamepads do have bluethooth.
it's a major problem in PC gaming in general. most games can be picked up cheaper in physical form especially if you compare the prices to Steam. the problem is in the digital market place the big players see them self as having no real competition for their market, so there is no real competition.
so the problem here isn't on digital stay at an inflated price it does on just about every store front and platform, the problem is they chose not to release a physical copy of the game that could be distributed outside of their own store.
Especially if you look at games like GTA V. That game is almost always full-priced and the discounts are rarely that good on it. If you could buy GTA V on PC physically, without Steam's DRM, you would find it CHEAP.
I know this because I managed to pick up a copy of GTA V on 360 for $3 at a garage sale. If I could do that with a PC version, I'd be on a cloud. Steam sales are only as great as the publisher who funded the game will allow.
was a very cold day the second time.
You're totally right, but I'd still love to be sat in a court room with the someone suing because they refused to paint a snail in order to brighten up its life! :)
yeah it would be funny to watch.
The "aircraft grade" is talking about the frame, and it's rare that the frame breaks before your keys. Unless, of course, you throw your keyboard around, in which case the Logitech G413 would probably be perfect for you, since its top frame (not the bottom of the keyboard) is made out of "aircraft grade aluminum" instead of the regular plastic most keyboards use. :P
for me it has always been blue on black for keyboards. but I would agree that red is a bad choice.
And Toblerones :-(
