I just switched from The Elder Scrolls Online Xbox 360 controller to the XBone controller on my PC. I spent some time looking for feedback like this before making the switch because you’re right, it’s pretty pricy. For me, it was a good upgrade.
The mushy depart on the 360 always bugged me and the bone just feels more responsive overall, with better construction in general. It just feels nicer. Obviously this is subjective, but that’s my 2 cents. Was worth every penny for me, the XBone controller is an excellent piece of hardware.
