nope i said it was wired

you want the typical xbox 360 wireless that is 59.99 us i hardly think 30 dollars is more then 60 and the wired 360 is 49.99 either way it go it works well and just cheaper

it is up to you though

Come on peeps, this is no place for an argument, the wired one is cheaper than chips(fries), I own a wireless receiver and a wireless pad and they both work flawlessly, however, I'd purchase an externally powered hub if you plan to use a webcam and a USB headset at the same time, otherwise you'll get out of bandwidth errors on your USB controller(OS)

What are you trying to say here? I'll get Bandwidth errors plugging them all to the PC, but if I use a powered Hub that is also plugged into the PC that I'll have no Bandwidth errors? That doesn't make any sense.

I think my R3E should have enough ports for me not to overload anything bandwidth wise, I mean if you have two controls with keypads, plus headsets on your Xbox's front ports, its fine. I think maybe what you're alluding to, is using under powered ports, as a posed to a lack of bandwidth...the kind of issue you get with unpowered USB hubs and dodgy front panel designs on cheap cases.
As for which control, I think it's definitely going to be an Xbox control I go for after the positive things you guys have said; plus others on the web. However do people think the generally sidelined directional pad will be up to constant use in SNES emulators etc? Also I am keen on getting the wireless dongle but can't really say I've found one for a respectable price that I am 100% sure is real (lots about it should be labelled Microsoft on the device, not Xbox360).

I personally just prefer the Wired version.
Less hassle, no need for batteries. Just plug it in and start gaming in seconds.

Plus, the cable is pretty long, and Ive never had a need to have it longer, or go wireless.

But thats just me. Im sure others that prefer the wireless version have thier reasons as well.

I replaced my dying wired controller with a 'for Windows' wireless version. Aside from the cord (derp) the biggest difference is that the rumble on the wired is arguably a tad stronger than the wireless counterpart. Other than that there is virtually no difference.

As for wired 360 controllers, it doesn't have to be labelled as 'for Windows' in order for it to work.

That 2nd amazon link has the wrong image. I'd say the 2nd link is the wireless version which includes the receiver. (The receiver is where the 'For Windows' part comes into it.

im arguing over nothing, i am only correcting our misinformed friend, and ye you are correct the wired is cheaper by 2 but again neither off Amazon have the receiver, neither of the links show wireless or a receiver which was a surprise.

By the way Im not being corrected .But belive what you want either way it works

Whole point of this is to give you choices if you don't like them don't have to buy it and like i said again Licensed meaning they had a hand in it period

Just cause microsoft isn't written everywhere means nothing The Logo is there that is good enough

As far as it being a knock off you are wrong lots of companies make products and slap other names on them and make the product cheaper to buy

If you ever worked in retail or any kind of industry you would know this don't mind me though i only worked Retail for 12 years and managed but i clearly have no idea of the business according to you

But once again not argueing just proving a point ,

Anyway like it was said before noone is holding a gun to you to buy it you want to throw away more money just for the name and for a wireless reciver that you really don't need to use go ahead this is all about options

I mean how far back you plan on being pretty much your just being ridiculous

one more thing you are looking it up from a different area of the world that does make a difference too !

firstly sorry to ori poster, i was giving him a suitable product in his area for a reasonable price that was all.
rich

ooooooooooooook
not sure what your on about i didn't mention the fact that it was a licensed 3rd party product in that post.

and yes i am aware of 3rd party products put themselves onto the market, even though again i didn't say anything about it, u'll never beat the original.

and sorry solarstarsunshines, can you not understand the concept of one price being higher than the other?

and sorry yes u do need a wireless receiver the fact u can do this for 2 more than what you was saying i find that completely acceptable.

also i plan on going as far back as less than a week ago? is that to far for you or something? i don't see how that is ridiculous.

and YES you are 100% correct so before you make a comment of (urghh its 60 "Bucks") you should take a point to notice the user is British so you have just gone against your own point, and giving out information that isn't suitable to that user.
so i reiterate
a wired 3rd party product for 18.60
or
a original wireless product, with a 2nd piece of hardware completely (receiver) for 20


dont worry mate, we all make mistakes, just dont let this one get you down
i've wasted enough time with explaining how things work to you, so leave it before somebody looses then an eye, then nobody is laughing are they.
