    According to the guys over at ControllerMAX (formerly CronusMAX), some Chinese dealers are trying to sell old Cronus Device stock and passing them off as CronusMAX.

    Apparently, these have been badly repaired by hand, so you are now WARNED. Don't get those!

    Here's the info:

      Repaired by hand and the work was horrible, but.... if you are willing to pay upgrade fee of $29 suddenly everything starts to be just fine.

      i think the upgrade fee includes a replacement fully functional unit, something the cronus team have absolutely no reason to offer to buyers of these crappy rejects.

      I'm not sure, $29 for software upgrade sounds like rip off , but I am 99% sure they talking about software only.
      I have original cronus I buy it when it just come out for like $100 just to check it out... and now to pay $29 sounds not so cool.

      To be fair they don't even need to offer that
      they never made the original cronus basically they're offering you half-price to convert you from the competitor.
      the fact that you overpaid for the competitors be piece of crap isn't their problem

      DHL arrived 4 days ago, got CronusMAX all working just fine , tested on XBOX ONE.
      My dealer told me this is 100% original and not fake or something.

      a bad thing, I must to use my XBOX ONE controller ID for detection to connect XBOX 360 Controller for example
      so my XBOX ONE can't be used with the XBOX360 controller at same time because ID is in use already.

      my idea was to buy CronusMAX and play with XBOX 360 controller as second controller on XBOX ONE = NOT POSSIBLE = SUX!
      just spend money on CronusMAX or on second XBOX ONE controller.

      what is a problem to emulate the controller ID ???
