Fresh off the box you’ll notice the controllers design, it’s black and gold, how can you wrong. Gold right and Left triggers with the D-Pad also draped in gold, the rest of the controller is black. I have to be honest, I’m not a fan of the standard Xbox One Controller, it just doesn’t feel as good as the Xbox 360 controller. This Fusion controller has made it comfortable for me to game with my Xbox One.
I know everyone loves having things wireless, including their controllers but I don’t. Having a wired controller is a must for me, when I usually have time to play games, I don’t want my gaming experience to be derailed because of my batteries had died. The cord comes in a 9.8ft Braided black and gray Cable. The length of the cord is perfect for me, not too long where it starts to tangle but not too short where I have be extremely be close to my Xbox One console.
The Fusion comes with a 3.5mm audio input, unlike the Xbox One controller that doesn’t have a normal headset jack so you’ll saving money not having to buy a Microsoft Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter that will run around $25.
Performance: I was surprised on how well this controller performed. The two gaming buttons on the bottom of the controller worked great. They were also easy to map. Having the option to map the B button which is usually the jumping button on many games to now having it mapped to the bottom button is immensely helpful. The other option that the fusion has is the ability to lock triggers, which makes it easier to rapidly press them.
The controller comes with 6 analog sticks, that are interchangeable. 2 standard sticks, 2 medium and 2 large round sticks. I liked having a tall stick for my left analog and a large rounded for my right analog stick.
Final Verdict: Let’s talk price tag! 50 dollars is perfect! The only other controller on the gaming market is the Xbox Elite controller and that will cost you $150. I would highly recommend this controller to anyone who plays for long hours and is on a budget.
