Good price - nice find.

When us the release date?

Certainly an improvement on £120.

Hot! RIP Scuf

Very good, though still struggling to justify buying one.
Hopefully it wasn't this price yesterday when the 'Big Thanks' discount was available...

Thinking the same, plus i had £40 worth of amazon vouchers i used on tools as i couldn't find anything i wanted

Deff a great price, but still seriously expensive for a controller!

Still that price at game, I feel sorry for anyone who gets it from there.

Hot. Hope they do a pack-in with like a limited edition CoD or Halo console, want to get an Xbox but missed all the good deals waiting for a limited edition console and now have the Rare collection and no console to play it on.

Does anyone know if this is better quality than the normal ones? I can't tell if the extra price is just for customisation or if it is more robust with better parts used.

why buy the game then?

I'm not a console fan but this is a decent enough price for such controller that gives an advantage. With the slow integration of Xbox Live & Windows 10 that will one day allow both paths to meet online, a control like this is going to be needed.

Basically I'm trying to say this in a nice way. When Xbox users come to play online against PC users they are going to need every little advantage to help them because we all know Keyboard and mouse gives a lot more accuracy and mobility in competitive play.

If only was this price yesterday!

I thought this was a game exclusive? not that im complaining would rather get it from amazon and at a better price

Just seen this on reddit, grabbed 2.now to sell off my current 3

For when I get the console also this website has a knack of making you buy stuff you didn't think you needed

Please confirm who you mean by "We" ?

Way cheaper, good deal now

Tread carefully, it sounds like the app is required to use some of the functions (e.g. binding keys to the rear triggers).
Seems like a waste if you can't use them.

Wow really want one of these but dunno why...

Reason 1: Because you can and they exist

Very nice! Holding out for sub £60 which hopefully won't take forever

I'd also like to know if it's better overall quality or just more customisation.

Definitely friend.

The only online game on PC game I can think of where auto-aim is a factor, is GTA Online, but even then, it segregates those who can aim, which those who need aim-assist.

For FPS you are correct, but for something like Elite I wouldn't fancy playing that with K/M myself..

I'd love to see the outcome of a K&M vs Controller in Counter Strike: Global Offensive or Shootmania.

I would put a healthy wager on K&M but the kids these days are pretty good with there controllers I'll give them that.

Will this work on PC?

Which is good for body hits but a well-used mouse will get 1-shot kills a lot more frequently.
I don't understand why consoles have had USB ports for 10 years without decent mouse support oO
I know it causes an imbalance in online games but seperate lobbies would sort that out.

I agree, I have Elite Dangerous and I haven't played it with keyboard and mouse.

I had these for my Flight Sim that don't get used much Saitek X52

I didn't like it with a controller either to be completely honest.

I remember many moons ago when the PS3 was released and I purchased Unreal Tournament I was supprised to see that had K&M option that actually worked!

Ridiculous price for a controller, regardless of cheapest place available!

It's not your average controller though. It is intentionally aimed at a niche market and is for enthusiasts, competitive or disabled gamers.

The Scuff for example has ridden of the back of Microsoft's core design and I don't know how a shed maker from Leicester has gotten away with it for so long. No doubt giving away free controllers for PR has helped hype his frankenstein product.

The Scuff and Razer Onza to some degree sold well regardless of it's price. They offered something that competive and disabled gamers asked for and they filled a lucrative gap so kudos to them.

MS now seem to be want a slice of that pie and I personally think have produced a better controller. For your average gamer the standard controller will do the job, but if you want to compete online and be the best then you need the tools to help you do that.

My personal opinion is that a XIM with a Keyboard and Mouse is better but I understand that it is not living room friendly.

Instant buy, great price.

I was pretty pee'd off at the RRP, but at this price I'm most definitely buying one. Great find OP. Hopefully this means I can stop clawing, it's probably causing permanent damage to my hand.

Son desperate for one and is using his birthday money.
He's well chuffed.
Cheers OP.

Yeah - it wasn't bad actually...
I also remember C&C3 on the 360.... (shudders)

Mid october release?

It makes me wonder why people get anything from game. Even pre owned stuff is shockingly inflated in price.
