    I'm looking to buy a new controller for the Xbox One, i already own a Power A controller and its quite a nice controller, although it suffers from slight third-party controller issues, such as disconnecting from within the console (and turning on the console when its off) from time to time, and the buttons don't last as long (at least the A button), but the controller is comfortable and it works really well like an Xbox 360 controller.
    The Microsoft controller, in my opinion, isn't all that better, its far less durable, it doesn't have a comfortable feel like the Xbox 360 controller, and its outrageously expensive.
    So, I'd like to hear other people's opinions, which would be the better controller? Microsoft or Power A?

    Well the thing is there's plenty of other third party controllers out there that's just as good as the official controller. For example I've heard PDP makes pretty good controllers (at least for PS4). I have no problem with the xbone controller though. I don't like it as much as the PS4 or Switch Pro controller but I like it well enough.
