The Xbox One Wireless Controller will cost $59.99 in the US, a listing on the Microsoft Store has revealed.

This means the new console's pad is priced at a $10 premium over the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller. Likewise, the controller plus Play and Charge kit bundle is priced $10 dearer than the Xbox 360 set, asking consumers to pay $74.99.

Those wanting the official Microsoft Wired Headset will need to pay $24.99, according to the store.

No UK pricing has been announced, but the UK Microsoft Store asks £34.99 for the regular Wireless Controller, suggesting a £40-£45 price tag on the Xbox One pad.

Xbox One will launch in November priced £429.99. Analysis

The PS4's DualShock 4 is also priced at $59.99 in the US, with the UK RRP confirmed at £54. Xbox fans will be hoping Microsoft's currency conversion is more generous to gamers in the UK.

Hi... I'm maybe having a little problem here, not with the Hydra itself but clearly related.

I found that my Xbox 360 wireless controller no longer works with some of the games that are on the supported Hydra games list, I tried with Bulletstorm, Mirror's Edge and Assassins Creed Brotherhood, they only works with KB&M and the Hydra.

Oddly; The Witcher 2 and Crysis 2 seems to work well with the controller.

I "unticked" those games from the list and the problem persists.

It is possible that the Hydra drivers are somehow overriding the Xbox 360 wireless controller?

If that's the case: Is there any way to fix it?

Thanks in advance guys you are making a great job...

That's what happens when you cram more tech in.
In this particular case, those impulse triggers.

It's just a shame that ever since analogue controllers took over, they've all had a notably finite lifespan when you start noticing the stick has become loose and games will start to drift on their own, especially if their dead-zone is set too tightly (Mass Effect 2 and Crysis 2 were notable for this).

You also never know if one is going to be 100% right until you've opened the packet. I had one Xbox 360 controller with a duff vibration motor which was only fixed by swapping it out with an older one.
Analogue triggers can also be very hit and miss. I had a Dreamcast controller where one of the triggers was very literally off/on.

Controllers haven't been £30 for a long time. Even a Wii-mote with nun-chuck will set you back more than that!

That's terrible, IMO a controller shouldn't be any more than £30.

FantasyMeister are placeholding the XBox One controller at £89.99

On the plus side they're charging the same price if you want the controller with a play and charge pack.
