Two AA Batteries Included in Xbox One Box! PS4 Crushed!

By Gary Cutlack on at

This is it. It's over. Microsoft has won the next-generation home console battle. Official Microsoft man-mouthpiece Major Nelson has announced that there was "one more thing" he didn't mention in his unboxing video -- two AA batteries for the controller.

While this is quite a good thing as it means you'll be able to play your Xbox One on launch day without having to rape your TV remote control for its batteries first, it does also point out a flaw in Xbox One's approach. If you want a rechargeable battery for your wireless pad, you have to buy one separately or juggle your own AA rechargeables, neither of which are very futuristic power solutions. [Major Nelson]
