If the build quality is really that good as Microsoft has bee saying and it lasts longer than most controllers tend to, than I think it'll be a good purchase for someone who spends a lot of time on their Xbox. I just really don't want to have problems with my sticks/triggers/etc a year from now and have to either get it repaired or replaced.

These articles are getting ridiculous
But they're already out, the BoS one is sitting behind me right now
Call of Duty knowledge, everybody!
The connections were made months ago, I guess its just a slow news day for Gamespot or something.
@croxus: Some of us don't want to have our computer constantly hooked up to a TV, and its better than having to lug it back and forth from my living room back to my desk just to play certain games.
Eh, it just doesn't feel right. Both the mismatch in aesthetics and just taking clips X-Rays instead of trying to mimic a more cinematic approach (I know it'd be impossible to do on Smash, but it just looks awkward)
This has been said before, but I totally agree with paid mods - provided its worth it. Something that was created to fix, alter or otherwise complete a product that was developed by a professional development team shouldn't be seen as a platform to make money off of. Sure, I'll donate to modders who did a hell of a job fixing a game, but I don't believe it should be expect, nor should the publisher/developer get involved what so ever (which was one of the biggest problems with the paid mod store's initial integration, Valve and Bethesda getting a huge cut.) We should also remember that mods are a big part of the PC community that, at its core, was always a kind of 'for the fans by the fans' endeavour.
Now, if its something on the lines of Counter-Strike, Red Orchestra, or other total conversion mods that fundamentally change how a game works, plays, feels, looks, or even gives a -huge- amount of content, than -that's- something that totally deserves a paywall. At that point its actually a completely new game, and the people behind it deserve some sort of incentive. And that's my biggest quarrel with this whole situation; there was nothing that suggested what should and shouldn't be behind a paywall. Literally anyone could throw whatever on the market and flood it with nonsense, which is exactly what happened. If the guys who are working on Skywind get to a full release, I'd be glad to throw some money at it, but something that -should- have been in the game such as an UI fix? No.
TL;DR - Donation button instead of paywall, paywall for mods that are essentially new games
@necrondude: It does make sense now, but I mean when I first watched that part of the story - there's a lot of implication about himself being a thief screwing over his own potential, so its understandable hard to miss, at least the first time watching without emphasis.
I thought he was referring to the fact he was a thief - but, ok.
