If Sony & Fanatec stay married, it's a one horse race for me.

Quite liking the look of the madcatz wheel and with the CFS being less dramatic now i reckon i could survive a race using one now.

Given the differences in clutch in the lower classes i feel like it should just be taken out of the game since you can't really use it like a real clutch.

Anyone have the official Xbox One Play & Charge kit?? How long does it last between charges?? the controller seems to be eating my rechargeable AA batteries in no time, so thinking of getting one

As I found out today by ripping up my headset.... theres a perm loop wire for push / pull speaker in the headset earpeice. Unplug your headset, even if your controller is off, should help power issues....

Not done the mod yet and not too sure if I will. After listening to you and Spiny in party chat, Spiny was really clear, you sounded a bit like an airline pilot with that muffled crackly voice 'Hello this is your captain speaking...'

Yeah I've charged them about 3 or 4 times in the week of having the Xbox One and I'm not on it any where near as much as the 360

Re the wheel, it's meant to be very good, however the pedals are flimsy. Lets hope they're sorted prior to release I'm February as it should be a great bit of kit!

The wires have that cotton / wax braiding inside, so it's damn awful to solder. I'll order a new adapter as soon as a clever chinese fella makes one

As JohnG said above, I run with my headset unplugged unless required. And battery use doesn't seem too bad. The first set were carried over from the 360 so had a part charge and lasted about 3 days. The next set (6 year old 2000mAh Sony's) are still going, although with no battery indicator on the XB1 I don't know for how long. But even with their current week of life, that still suggests they're running for at least half as long as in the 360 so not too terrible.

I got a week out of the bundled batteries in the box. Couldn't work out yesterday morning why I sucked at driving my Lexus IS-F and kept powersliding it everywhere, then I twigged the trigger rumble wasn't working. Changed the batteries (old eneloops I had knocking around) and all was well again.

Think I'll be asking Santa for a Play and Charge. Either that or stealing the USB cable off my nook!

Im getting this Buy PS4 USB to Micro USB 3 Metre Charge Cable at Argos.co.uk - Your Online Shop for PS4 accessories.

All you need is a micro one end and a normal usb the other and it will work.
The ones I have at home ( Galaxy S3 charger, Kobo charger, etc ) are all far to short to be able to game with them, but I have tried them to see if they work and they do.

That'll teach me to say how well the batteries seemed to be lasting. Packed up while talking to Joe last night. As it was half ten, I think that was the XB1's way of saying "Time for bed"!
