This is the official 360 controller with the official wireless receiver for PC and at this price I though it was great as the receiver is usually £15, and currently amazon are still charging £24.99 for the wired version.
Lets not debate M&K vs Pad, I ordered this for platformers and emulated stuff...

or £17.99 for AMEX card ( amex5off)

Wow.. Either I'm missing something or this is a great deal!

Great price, good find...heat and ordered!

top deal. The only thing I'd say is that I had a microsoft wireless receiver a few years ago and it just stopped working a few weeks after running out of warranty. A common problem at the time. Dunno if it still is.

I dont see where it says includes wireless receiver..??

It states it in the product description further down where it talks about the 9 metre range

Great price, have some heat

Red hot thanks

What a great deal!

I'll have some of that.

Purchased.

Thanks

Thanks bought another 2

great deal. Ordered 1) to try to get it working to control XBMC with emulators, and 2) as a back up 360 pad! Didn't even know how much they were originally lol, just bought. Thanks OP

Quality find OP. One of those deals that mAkes you read it twice for the catch.

Have some heat

Ordered one, anyone want to buy the PC receiver part as I only want to use this with my xbox?

... a nice pair

Great deal, although you could use a ps3 dualshock controller on your PC as an alternative, (assuming you have a Bluetooth receiver). I expect the same will be true of nextgen controllers. Still before I get beat up, I do prefer the 360 controller... I don't have a 360 anymore, but I have two ps3 controllers, so why not. Hope this helps.

only way to buy a boxed official reciever. good price just for the controller. I bought an unboxed, but official, one on ebay last year for £12 and I use it to play nearly all my steam games. have some heat.

ps3 controllers arent fully supported. they require third party software to emulate the keyboard and mouse and map the buttons but xbox 360 controllers just work and are listed as a compatible controller on steam.

Thanks, been looking for a cheap controller

£27.50 as of now..

Or £37.24 with charge kit

Nice one op!

In fact I believe you are looking at the 360 controller on its own

It is 22.99 clicking through here, 27.50 searching directly on Amazon through my iPad app.

I use my PS3 controller via a USB cable, using the MotionJoy driver and BetterDS3 software.

Steam sees the controller as an Xbox controller, and you map the DS3 buttons against the Xbox Controller buttons (not KB/Mouse).

Hey all, Make sure it has 'For Windows' in the title if searching on amazing rather than using the link, the other priced at 27.50 does not have the receiver included and is the generic Xbox package.

Thanks, just purchased, been looking for a receiver but may as well get an extra controller for the price.

Super hot, I was looking at these only yesterday. Well spotted, thank you.

Can this still be used with xbox 360 or is it PC only??

Thanks in advance

It's sold by Amazon so should be 12 months??

Good find! I've been looking at getting one of these for a while now to create my own steambox for single player games. Now all I need is a GPU and I am sorted!
