Who the hell wants controllers that run on AA batteries? If they don't change it before mass production that alone will ruin the product.

Apple remains the only company whose wireless electronics I can stand to use from a pure battery life standpoint.

Convenience?

All batteries will fail at some point (including the ones hardwired into smartphones nowadays), so in the long term it is better that they are replaceable rather than having to replace the unit they were powering. Not to mention, I don't want to wait for a controller to charge when I want to play a game, so just being able to pop new batteries in is always a plus.

Replacing batteries every few days is neither convenient nor cheap. I'd much rather have a decent length wire that I plug into the console.

Also, I'd rather my cell phone have a battery that I charge every night than AA's that I replace 15 times a day (assuming it was even possible to run a modern cell phone on AA's, which it's not). By the time that battery dies it's long past time to upgrade my phone.

For the love, PLEASE post video of booting it up on the TV. I've seen too many unboxing videos but not a single test run video.

I'd love to support ES in getting an OUYA. I backed the project and I should be getting it shipped soon.
