    Default SteelSeries Nimbus Wireless Controller

    I wasn't sure how much gaming I'd be doing on the new apple tv, but it's nice for casual gaming.

    Has anyone picked the Steelseries nimbus controller?

    I tried out a few games & the remote actually works great, but not sure I want to constant "click & press" so much on that remote, lol.

    And the remote is $50, less than a replacement remote would be.

    Just seeing if anyone has tried the wireless controller.

    Thanks

    I have it. Works great in games that support controllers. It navigates the menu/ui as well.

    I'm not a die-hard, heavy gamer. I only play about 5-10 hours total per week.
    I recharge it about weekly, and yet I've never had it go below half charge.
    At that, it takes about 20+ mins to get it to charge fully.

    Yes, but then again that's for a partially-depleted battery. Probably about 50-60% remaining, and not to mention I use a fast charger. But yes, I'm also a little pleasantly surprised at how quickly it fully charges.
    I just hope the overall battery life is good. (i.e. that it lasts the device for a year or two at least).

    I have one too and I love it. Really comfortable to use and works with loads of games. Now that Apple has stopped the requirement for every game to use the Siri remote as the controller, hopefully there will be many more great games to come that make use of this controller.
