Does anyone know where I can buy a hard wired Xbox one controller?  I can't seem to find anywhere.

Argos, Amazon or Game all have them in stock.

I looked at that one earlier, that one is not hard wired.

Ahh my mistake.
Had a quick Google and it appears they only made hard-wired ones for retailers (to stop people nicking them).
Oldish articles tho, cant find any up to date info.

Thanks for looking. I spent a lot of time looking and got nowhere. My Grandson keeps damaging the micro usb port on the controller, hence why I wanted a hard wired one.

Im surprised they dont seem to make them, youd think a lot of people would buy them for that reason.

95% of the 'Wired' ones are removable, as with the 360 controllers if the cable was damaged the whole controller was thrown away, Where-as with the new ones you only need to replace the cable...

But I have a PowerA one purchased from Game, that is hard wired...

however this is hard wired..

I made the same mistake, it has a removable USB, not a fixed cable.

But when its plugged in its hard wired and not wireless? TBH I just cant see the problem...:huh:

 

Unfortunately they all come that way now for easy packing and transportation.
