So I dug deep in the closet and found my box with original XBOX controllers and so, the plan being I want to use a controller with my PC (I bought an adapter cable). However it turns out not everything has survived equally well, in fact the parts sold by Microsoft themself is the worst for wear
It is of no consequence that the foam cushion on the headset has just crumbled away, apart from just being like wtf, however that the cable on both controllers has become somewhat sticky is a downer. I am thinking maybe I should just try a careful wipe using a wet cloth with a bit of soap, but is it the right way to go?
One of the two controllers was actually placed in a zip tie bag, while the other was just in the box along with the headset and a bunch of cables only the sticky cables issue is the same either way. Is seems those greenish black translucent cables are not made to last.
My plan is to try and do some gaming on my PC using a XBOX controller, the hope is it will work well with some classic arcade games and also just some newer titles like Lonely Mountains Downhill
Also just a observation. My hands must have shrunk since back when I last used the original XBOX, those controllers are HUGE. I recall now there was some controversy back then, but somehow I just forgot the size of them it will take a bit of getting used to I think.
Bones heal, glory is forever.
