The Xbox 360 controller is just wonderful, the best console controller I’ve ever held in fact.

Be aware of the fact that this is the EXACT same product as the wired 360 console controller, so if that one is cheaper, buy it! The only difference is the package (this one is uglier…) and you don’t get the software CD…but you can download the latest software package at MS website.

Microsoft making this controller cross compatible is actually a pretty big deal as there may finally be a level of standardization for PC controllers, if most people begin using this controller is makes it far easier on game developers to know what interface gamers are using. In fact, many games are coming with a 360 control scheme pre-installed, just as Need For Speed Most Wanted.

Great for gaming on a HTPC
Lots of people complain ‘Why not just use a mouse and keyboard?’ and my friends make fun of me for using it but if you have a PC in your living room then this is the way to go for…

This is the best possible controller for the PC that I have found thus far. I have tried many controllers that are similar to the PS2 design, but they all lacked decent button recoiling, easy to push buttons, and slimness. All other controllers I have tried are too bulky and after ~30 mins. my hand begins to get tired. I have played one game with it so far (Winning Eleven 9) and it works perfectly. No lag, comfortable feel, and the buttons are easy to use especially for a fast sports game like soccer. Obviously, if you’ve used the wired regular XBOX 360 controller you know this is the same thing with different packaging (and an install CD). I highly recommend it!

Seems to work with games that will support other gamepads. I have Vista 64 and Microsoft has drivers for it on their website.

THERE WAS AN ISSUE WITH SOUND – PLUG IT IN AND I LOST SOUND IN MY SPEAKERS (my mobo is a Gigabyte DS3)

No support anywhere on the microsoft website or internet on this, and I saw a frazzled previous reviewer… so here’s the fix:

The controller has an integrated headset feature (you can buy seperately), but your pc may (like mine did) see the controller as a Controller AND a “headset.” It automatically enabled the “headset” (thus disabling my speakers).

Go to Control Panel > Sound

You’ll see it as a microsoft headset device enabled — disable this “headset”. Then your speakers should come back on. This does not interfere with the joystick at all.

Enjoy!

Xbox 360 controller review
It’s a really good product if you want to play video games. I bought it because I wanted to test new video games that I’m developing using XNA but it works fine with PC video…

Great, just don’t buy from amazon
Great controller, works wonders on those PC games (I’m looking at YOU Assassins Creed) that have poor KB/M controls… just don’t buy from Amazon.

Perfect Controller for Windows Games
Started playing some Valve games and wasn’t too coordinated with keyboard and a mouse. I’ve been playing xbox/360 for a while so I might as well use this for the windows games…

Did what I needed it to do.
We needed a control that would work with Lego Indiana Jones for PC. The manual recommended this controller.

Awesome controller!
We ordered this for my husband who has many computer games that are hard to play with the keypad/mouse…especially for his laptop.

Nice controller, but poor compatibility
While this controller lives up to its name–it is, indeed, an Xbox 360 controller–I found that it really gives Windows some firmware issues. Glaring ones.

Exactly what it is
This is exactly what it is – an XBox 360 controller for windows. If you need one, it will work well. If not, then don’t buy it.

Great bang for the buck.
Here’s the basics.
1. It’s not that expensive compared to other controllers.
2. It works great, I haven’t seen any flaws yet.
3.

Xbox 360 controller for PC
This is a very nice tool to have for the new releases on PC; the games come Xbox-controllers-ready with rumble features.
