I am a loyal X-Box owner and X-Box live customer (take a look at my gamerscore and it says it all). I am seriously loosing my patience with the crap X-Box is putting out. First off the controller itself is junk. I am not a four year old kid my fingers are much to large for the miniature joysticks they slapped on this thing. Also I have four different controllers and they all feel like if I squeezed hard enough I would crush them to pieces. Next is the headsets. The initial headset that came with the console is crap. I hardly ever works and I have to keep it plugged into my controller at all times for fear that it wouldn't work if I did unplug it. Also when you do unplug it the game you're playing's sound gets all messed up and quiet. After the update I still see no real fix to the chat problem. My chat still works fine for awhile then just stops for no reason. I still have to mess with my mic every now and again to get it to work properly. Also (like a moron) I invested in a new headset (titanfall turtlebeach) and it turned out to be a huge waste of money. Most would say this is not microsofts fault but it is. The reason it sucks is because with the NEXT GENERATION we've downgraded from quality surround sound headsets to crappy stereo sound be fed through your already stressed wireless controller. This make the sound horrible. Last night a new problem emerged. My friend was chatting with me when all the sudden his mic started making sounds as if it had a short somewhere in the cord. So I let him borrow my spare mic (that has never been used) same thing happened with that one. So then we switched controllers and again same thing was going on. This only started happening yesterday with no signs of it before. Is it just me or does microsoft just seem to be going backwards with there hardware. Does anyone else have these problems???
