    Yes a sale a day after I purchase the white one from Harvey for $89. What do we call this kinda bamboozle around here ?

  •  

    Is this the latest Xbox one controller?

  •  

    None available any longer.

    •  

      I see plenty available. Can you try again? Thanks.

      Ps. If you click "Free Pickup" you can see which stores have stock in-store ready to click and collect.

      •  

        I think the problem is… If you click a store without stock, then the item changes to 'discontinued' and there is no way to get back to the ordering page.

        Its an error in the website as I tried on two seperate devices.

          It looks like Umart is storing your first choice in a cookie, cache, or based on IP, or something like that.

          This seems like a lot of stuffing around, but you could try clearing your cache and deleting cookies from your browser.

          An easier way would be to try another browser (so if you use Chrome, you can try Edge or Firefox).

          Ps. I just tried what you said, and I confirm the same thing happens using Chrome browser on Samsung phone.

        •  

          Update: I then tried Firefox browser and I was then able to select other store.

          First I added the controller to my basket, from the basket I went to check out.

          Next I was asked for name and address etc, then I was able to choose delivery or in store pick-up.

          Ps. Firefox did hang after entering my details, so I reloaded it and it asked to resend the info, which I did.

          So I was able to oder it using a different browser (Firefox) instead of clearing cache and deleting cookies etc on the Chrome browser.

          I would suggest trying a different browser (just make sure to add the controller to the basket first, so that you can repeat the process if something goes wrong).

    Wait, doesn't the controller use AAs?

    So you can charge your Nimh batteries with the cable? Wouldn't that take forever, and is bad for the batteries because of charge memory?

    Is it a proprietary cable?

    I always drain the batteries completely then charge them.

    •  

      Yes, you can charge the controller's rechargeable batteries/pack, while playing (so you don't have to wait for it to charge, if you only have the rechargeable battery pack).

      I'm not sure about the effect on batteries, but that's what the controller and battery pack were always meant to do (the controller and battery pack were designed to be used that way).

      It's not a proprietary cable, it's a standard USB cable (possibly with a thicker cable to carry more current for charging).

      •  

        That makes sense for LiON batteries like dual shocks but I'm not so sure with NiMH.

        Everyone here should have a ton of Eneloop/LADDA sitting around on stand by anyway. Just swap them over when they die I say.

          I know what you mean by the memory effect with NiMH batteries.

          I think I read somewhere that was more of an issue with the older NiMH batteries.

          Microsoft says that's one way to charge it (I'm not sure it's the best way):

          "Keep the action going with the Xbox One Play & Charge Kit. Recharge while you play or afterwards, even when your Xbox is in standby"

          https://www.xbox.com/en-AU/xbox-one/accessories/batteries-ch...

          It's worth looking into, whether or not it's an issue.

      Yes, yes, yes.

      Is it a proprietary cable?

      No. It's just Micro USB.

      I always drain the batteries completely then charge them.

      Good. Keep using Eneloops (or Ikea's Ladda) batteries as per normal.

    Don't they sell something similar to the old xbox 360 wireless receiver for windows? Seems strange to have the use a cable when my old xbox 360 controller works with the wireless adapter with windows.

    • +2 votes

      There is a wireless adapter.

      You don't have to use the cable to charge the controller power pack, or batteries.

      I think of it as a "bonus" USB cable (which is probably best used when you really want to play but your batteries are flat).

      There is a wireless adapter, the Xbox 360 controller couldn't be used over the USB cable though unless you had a wired one. The Xbox one controller will work no problems. On the later generations of the Xbox one controller they also have Bluetooth so if you have a receiver already you can use it wireless without anything extra.

    $11 shipping to Perth kills the deal.

    Can I clarify this is not the same as an Xbox One S Wireless Controller?

    I’m looking for one that would work with an Apple TV. Thanks!

      You should be able to use this controller with Apple TV because it supports Bluetooth
      https://www.microsoft.com/accessories/en-nz/products/gaming/...

      Note that the Umart page says it's the 4N6-00003 model while the Microsoft page says 4N6-00001 - it is the same controller (either Umart made an error here or the code is possibly different for reasons such as region in which it's sold).

      I suggest ringing Umart to confirm this, and paying by PayPal for a quick refund if it's not working as described by Umart rep.

      Ps. There is no "S" controller for Xbox One.

      There is a new controller that was released at the same time the Xbox One S was released, the new controller has Bluetooth where the previous one did not.

      Also, I did a Google search to see if they were compatible, and all the articles say that with the new iOS Playstation dual shock and Xbox One controllers will work with Apple TV (no mention of an Xbox One S controller that I can see) https://www.google.com.au/search?source=hp&ei=NGhyXaz8D8ev9Q...

      Just get a Logitech Harmony 350 universal remote. $35 at Officeworks.

      • +1 vote

        Depends on what quarrymaster wants to do.

        If they want to control only the Apple TV (and other home entertainment devices) then a Logitech remote would be cheaper.

        But, if they want an Xbox One controller for their Xbox console that they can also use with Apple TV, then the Logitech remote would be pointless.

        Not very good for playing games

  •  

    Out of stock in my local Umart :(

    •  

      Yes, all the in-store stock I can see are in QLD.

      Yesterday all stores in Queensland, a couple in NSW, and I think one in VIC had stock for free pickup.

      •  

        Oh well, I'm not dying for it and I actually have found that if possible, it's better to get the textured Xbox one controllers which have better grip.

        My original first gen Xbox One black controller has a 'sticky' issue with the sticks/dpad where items seem to keep scrolling/moving for a microsecond after I let go vs. my newer Bluetooth Xbox One controller… wonder if it's because it's the black ones, or just not the latest gen.

  •  

    Thanks for this post, I got 2 from JB Hifi MacArthur Square on a price match.

  •  

    It has been this price for a long time, a great deal. I've bought a few and price matched successfully through JB.

    Much better controller than pdp controller, avoid them at all cost. Pdp controllers are trash because you can't press the left joystick in whilst pushing the joystick forward, so if you play fps and you want to sprint from walking you have to return the stick to more of an upright position then press and push forward, this poor design feature really pets it down, otherwise it basically the same. beats me why they didn't just fully copy it.
