Xbox One Wireless Controller - Recon Tech Edition £39.95 @ The game collection

Found 24th Jan
Whilst looking for something to spend my £10 on a £50 spend voucher at Amazon, I had a quick google to see whether I should buy a Recon Tech or Patrol Tech controller.

This one popped up in Google at £10.00 cheaper than it is currently going for on Amazon.
Looks like it is usually around the £50.00 mark.

£60.00 at Game, Tesco and direct from Microsoft.

Excellent controller when using custom side grips.
Anyone any opinions on both the Recon Tech and Patrol Tech controllers? I want to get one but not sure which one to go for

Where you buying them grips from or you just mean those stick on things over original?

That deal was over a month ago so I think you are allowed to post the same deal if a month or more has elapsed.

Got mine yesterday (Recon Tech) and I really like it, the differences are subtle but the rumble function seems a more refined than my new Xbox One X controller, even though the insides are meant to be identical. The extra grip is noticeable but nothing too major. It looks great too.

Only issue is one of the bumper buttons makes an awful cheap sounding 'springy' noise when pressed and then released. I guess this is just chance though and no reason to think they're all like that.

Got one to try from Amazon - buttons are ok but the vibration / rumble feedback is awful. Loose and makes a rattling noise in the controller (as my original 2013 controller did)

It seems the QA / Variation of quality isn't really improved at all with this gen 3 controller.

Decided to stick with my original Recon Tech with the noisy bumper.
I got one of these for 36 quid from Microsoft Spain and returned it, the left stick was catching on something and there was something shaking about loose in the controller itself. Back to the more sturdy 360 controller
Just got the last one 💪
