Review: Minecraft Pig Controller, Xbox One


I was so pumped to receive this gift from my wishlist!

I had really wanted a pink controller, but most of the custom ones are astronomically expensive. 

The controller comes with 2 AA batteries and the controller. 

Positive:

I don't think the images do it justice for just how cute it is. 

It has a 3.5mm jack (which all new controller do)but since I have been using the microsoft issued controller that came with my xbox one when I purchased it 4 years ago- this was a major bonus. 

Works great, have had zero issues with it connecting or working properly. 

Negative:

Because the joysticks are a very light color AND they have the matte texture, they are almost impossible to clean. I had been making some topical balm and had put some on my hands to test, not realizing that the turmeric might bleed onto the controller. I initially thought it was no big deal and grabbed some alcohol to clean off. Well, because of the matte like texture, even alcohol won't get into the crevices. so am probably going to have to use a brush or something to clean it. This bummed me way out. 

Microsoft is so greedy they still include AA batteries with these controllers- knowing damn well everyone who plays regularly has a plug and play pack. The fact that these controllers (at $45-$100 each) do not INCLUDE rechargeable battery packs makes me furious. I already had one from my other controller but now if I want to play split screen someone is going to have to use regular batteries. 

Final Thoughts:

So, overall- I *DO* recommend this controller. Its adorable and does what it's supposed to do. If you are looking for a really cute controller or are a big fan of minecraft- definitely give it a try! Hopefully microsoft will get on board with the batteries, and be careful with staining the joysticks, but otherwise- it's a great controller!
