It took a few seconds to open that little circular clear sticker at the bottom of the box - of course, I opened it carefully... But I was pretty excited, so I might have rushed it a bit. Inside the box, it came with 2 AA batteries and some health & safety information.
The controller actually feels a bit better than the original Xbox One controllers. One of the problems I have with the original Xbox One controller is that the seaming around the back of the pad is a bit raised and uncomfortable to hold for long periods of time. With the Titanfall controller, it feels a bit more rounded and smooth rather than seamed. The panels of plastic on each controller handle don't feel at all loose either, which is a problem I've seen on a few of the Xbone controllers during play and testing.
I'm pretty sure that I play Titanfall 300% better on it too.
