Joystiq has a cool series going for Xbox 360 annoyances, and one of the ones on that list is the fact that if you really think about it, wireless controllers are not wireless due to the laziness of gamers.
Unfortunately, Microsoft’s designers underestimated gamer laziness. Rather than use the play-and-charge kit only when the controllers need to be charged, we find ourselves just leaving them plugged in all the time because it’s too much trouble to neatly wrap up then put away the play-and-charge kit. Once we started leaving it in the system, we were able to recharge the controllers more conveniently, but now our living room looks messy! The core wireless design aesthetic has been ruined.
It is funny because it is true.
