Does the current Xbone not have good wireless controllers or Bluetooth? I though all controllers these days used Bluetooth. Please correct me!

Same here, though the Xbone stuff doesn't offer that option natively, stupidly. I do have a 360 wired controller though.

Yes. I just charge my controllers when the console is in standby mode.

Currently, the Xbox One controllers don't use bluetooth.

Yes. I just charge my controllers when the console is in standby mode.

That's what I do too. I just plug em back in when I'm done playing.

So out of curiosity, what type of transmission to most controllers use? I thought the PS3 was Bluetooth for sure but I have no evidence to back that up. To be honest Bluetooth doesn't seen that great to me. It drops out a lot when you connect an iPod or whatever in a car so I'm guessing there's not really a ton of bandwidth.

Off the top of my head, I think that both the PS4 and Wii U Pro Controller use bluetooth (in addition to any other standards they may use, if any). I do know that the Xbox One controllers do not use bluetooth, because it's not recognizable on the Steamlink (which can find bluetooth controllers), and in order to use the Xbox One controller on PC wirelessly, you need the Xbox One USB adapter. So I assume Microsoft is currently using some kind of propriety wireless connection.

tl;dr-
Xbox One Controller - Proprietary Wireless?
Wii U Pro Controller - Bluetooth
DualShock 4 - Bluetooth
