[Microsoft Store] Razer Wolverine TE Gaming Controller - Xbox & PC $99

There was a lightning deal yesterday for the Ultimate Edition. This is the same without 2 extra buttons.
Same price as ATL on Amazon

Also keep in mind that this is NOT a wireless controller.
Anyway this is a good controller and i'm considering one.

Yes, the price is better at Costco but it's not sold online and you have to go to the store to know if they have it stock.

Been on sale for a while ordered one a few weeks ago. Definitely worth it at this price of you are looking for an alternative to the Elite controller.

Not just price; Costco would also be better to deal with for returns if needed.

For the controller, are these the ones that use switches for the buttons? I've found the official MS controllers are notorious for loose buttons that sometimes don't read input

It's not the same as the Ultimate without two buttons. I own both. I got the TE first, and the Ultimate after because I liked the TE so much... now I own two Ultimates. I like these controllers enough to have backups for backups. The ultimate is much better... not just because it has a nice storage case, it also has interchangeable dpad and thumb sticks which come in handy when switching game types ... but I found myself always accidentally pressing the back paddles on the TE so much that I have to disable them completely on the TE but not the Ultimate.

Lack of wireless doesn't bother me much, as I'm on PC and even when I'm playing on the couch the included detachable cables are super long and have quick breakaways on them. I've grown to appreciate not having to change the batteries all the time compared to the official MS controllers. Normally I'd also complain about built in batteries being planned obsolescence devices but at least the MS controllers you can just put AAs in them so at least that part isn't a big deal, but still... I highly recommend these original wolverine controllers, I recommend the Ultimate more, but if you can somehow get used to the paddles on the TE it's still a good choice and I'd take one of those any day over the MS controllers.

And yes, all of the buttons on these are more like the switches on good gaming mice or mechanical keyboards, they have a positive "click" when pressed instead of being mushy. It makes a huge difference in difficult platformers, tetris, or really anything requiring precise sequences of button presses.

I agree the two buttons make a huge difference, and congrats on sniping that 75$ ultimate, I saw it too but I already own an ultimate + elite controller 2, so i didnt go for it haha
