Is this greaseproof Xbox controller really greaseproof?



We put the supposedly greaseproof new Xbox controller to the test, lathering it with grease, cheese dust and dipping sauce. So does this PR stunt deliver on its promise?

    Maybe its a culture thing but I always take a break from gaming to get a snack, eat it, wash my hands n mouth, then go back to gaming. Unless you're a streamer I don't get what would make you do both at the same time

    Yuck! All I can think about when I see someone with greasy fingers touching a controller or something else is, "what is wrong with you?"

    It doesn't make sense. It passed 2 tests against greasy foods and failed one test against a (non-greasy) sauce. It was then concluded it was not grease proof?

    it's very hard to tell if this is really greaseproof when it has a greasy finish
