Xbox Should Create Wired Versions of Controllers

As someone who doesn't like wireless controllers, I think Xbox should either create their own version of wired controllers or work with partners to create better quality wired controllers overall.

        These garbage micro USB controllers are just a cop-out. They're flimsy and unreliable. Bring back the true wire controllers like they had for the 360. Besides, I'm pretty sure most people don't play Xbox from more than 10 feet from your TV. Also, this would cut down on battery waste and would be a huge PR gain for Xbox.

        We're already seeing the changes begin with the Xbox Adaptive Controller including USB-C. I believe it's time to take the next step with the standard Xbox Controller, and give it the durable, reversible connector it deserves.
