Wait... Xbox One controllers will STILL require AA batteries?

This hadn't even crossed my mind as a scenario. I don't really know what to say about this, what do you guys think?

- Some people like the flexibility that AA batteries bring.
- PS3 (and presumably PS4) controllers may have built in batteries that can potentially die but they are pretty simple to replace.
- Microsoft selling rechargeable battery packs, presumably separately, for the Xbox One controllers in 2013 is taking the biscuit.
