  A well built and brilliant to use controller

| | See all funkydoodycool's reviews (41)

This is exactly the same as the wireless version, apart from the inclusion of... a wire. And the battery pack is missing too... making it lighter. All the hype around wireless control - it makes sense on the Wii, but on Xbox, what difference does it really make? I suppose I sit at a computer desk (use my monitor for my 360 too) so wireless has no benefit to me.

The absolute only thing about this pad (and any official Xbox 360 pad) that is not 100% excellent is the D pad, which is really very poor, and I'm surprised they haven't released a new design. But, not many games will have you using this.

  Lovely, PC compatible, But the GCN was better.

It's a very nice controller. I love it, compatible with pc and if you are a pc gamer then this is so much better for sports games and some rpg's. It plays beautifully and is really nice fit to the hand and feels like the gamecube controller with a bit more weight. But the gamecube controller is the most confortable of all time. The playstation controller is kind of out the window cos it just hurts and gives you blisters n stuff. Better than PS3, cant compare with the epic Wii remote because its so different. 360 is the best controller for the Nex gen excluding wii.

Its kind of better to buy the wireless if you want to sit quite a distance from the tv and your better off buying the wireless than this and a cable extender even if it is cheaper.

If like me, you have 2 wireless controllers already, get yourself 2 wire ones....saves on battery recharges as well as being cheaper. Does it really matter that they have wires....hjow often do you have a 4 player? Plus, THEY WORK ON PC'S

  Great product but is it needed

| | See all James06's reviews (126)

This is a good product to have but it is really just obselete due to you being able to use wireless controllers with the 360.

They I would only recomend buying these if your using rechargable batteries or you have not got the budget to buy a wireless controller.

Usefull to have though!!!

  The best out

| | See all snipertom's reviews (29)

xbox controllers are great. I must have dropped mine on the floor hundreds of times but it doesnt show.
The only issue is the possible tangles which is why wireless are better but be prepared to buy a play and charge kit if you get a wireless because they really do eat batteries.

  Great product

Basically i was fed up with having to charge my batteries, and opted to buy wired controller. i recommend this to anyone who has a xbox 360 in their bedroom and wants to enjoy playing games without worrying about batteries. the length of the cord is about 3 metres and feels almost like the wireless one, expect it is lighter and, personally, easier to use.

  Great product, a must buy for the PC user!

I bought this to play Tomb Raider Anniversary on my PC because it isn't on the xbox 360. I have owned various pcs for the last 10 years and tried various controllers and NEVER have I been able to get them to work properly when I found out that the xbox 360 controller could be used on the pc I thought I'd give it a go and boy am I over the moon with it.....it's like playing tomb raider on my xbox, fabulous. Windows installed it automatically and the game picked it up straight away, I haven't even had to assign the buttons, it's all done and plays flawlessly....this has restored my faith in playing pc games with a controller.....wayayyyyyy!

  Long cable - light and comfortable - can use on windows PC

| | See all niftyuk's reviews (184)

Firslty, I'd recommend wireless. But if its out of your budget then this pad is great.

The USB cable length is very long - some 3 metres so playing for most people is easy done.

The cable also has a detachment in it so if your kids run through and trip over the cable it will pull apart without pulling the console off the TV stand, the controller out of your hand or damage the USB port on the Xbox.

The size of the pad and rumble features are identical to the wireless controller, buttons are well based as are the anologue sticks.

Wanting a control pad for windows based gaming, then this is your man. Buttons are well placed, the size of the controller will fit most hands from kid to adult.

  The best all round controller - especially if you have PC

| | See all Ade666's reviews (9)

I prefer these controllers to the Playstation ones. They are also a huge improvement over the original Xbox controllers.
Been able to use with a PC is also an added bonus.
Windows detects the controller and configures it effortlessly. Which you would expect been as they are both Microsoft products.
Also, most new games ( inc Spiderman 3 ) will detect the X360 controller and any `on screen prompts` to press certain buttons appear the same way they would in an X360 game.

Definately a worthwile purchase, the wireless controller would be best, but you need to get an extra piece of hardware for the PC to allow Windows to use the wireless ones.
