Microsoft’s new wireless pad adapter no longer looks like some '90s wi-fi dongle nightmareMicrosoft’s new wireless pad adapter no longer looks like some '90s wi-fi dongle nightmare

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.

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.

people have put these "joke" clauses in licence agreements for decades, people will never fully read agreements it's just a given, there is also the fact most of these agreements couldn't be upheld in court if someone had the money to fight it.Reply

Logitech Spotlight: get equipped with the aircraft-grade G413 keyboardLogitech Spotlight: get equipped with the aircraft-grade G413 keyboard
Belimawr Avatar
having had any number of gaming boards with varying success (Steelseries are the worst and Logitech is the best) I went to mechanical bordes over gaming boards and I'll never look back, honestly with gaming boards I was getting on average 12-18 months out of a board. I've had my Ducky board now over 2 years (can't remember when I bought it exactly but definitely over 2 years) and it's still as responsive and good as it was the day I bought it. so I can't help but feel this "aircraft grade" is the new way to try to sell a device again in a market that has hamstrung itself by returning to hard wearing mechanical boards. as to be honest a firm has lost at least 1 sale from me since I got my ducky, so I can see firms coming out with new metrics and buzzwords to try to sell something that people no longer need.Reply

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

I actually bought this keyboard about two months ago. I've used a range of mechanical keyboards from Logitech and Razer and a couple of other manufacturers but this is the only one I've really, really been happy with so far.

The last keyboard I had was one of the Razer something something. I accidentally didn't look properly on its key caps and their font, because that's one of the biggest gripes I had with it (might seem like a minor complaint but it looks freaking stupid). That, and that it felt extremely plastic (probably because it was all made out of plastic).

That, and all its extra macro keys I never use.

I personally like the G413 because it looks clean, it doesn't have any extra buttons I don't use and has a small frame. It also feels heavy which adds to the quality feeling factor.

I also prefer the switches over my other cherry switches that I've used. But that's just me and a very subjective opinion.

The only gripe I have with the G413 is that I'm limited to red backlighting on the black keyboard. I'd preferred white, but I could only get that with the silver keyboard.

Note: The G413 Carbon doesn't have RGB lighting and is not customizable at all (except for some macros with the software suite). So the author of the article should probably look up the product they're promoting - especially since it's a sponsored article.

for me it has always been blue on black for keyboards. but I would agree that red is a bad choice.

these types of deals only happen for one reason, to clear stock before they release the next version. either that or they did just make far too many thinking the uptake would be higher so now they are clearing out warehouse space.
