Tempting.

Was going to post it but I'm hoping the wireless one might drop in price again

Fully plug and play, no drivers, messing required.

I was reading the reviews & someone said that the controller kept crashing with Win 8

Most people are idiots.
Even more are idiots who like games (sad but true) the term "fanboy" actually means "narrow minded arrogant idiot"

I just tried one of my wireless controllers on a laptop with a wired Lead with no batteries & it works my xbox, plugged into the laptop Ho-Ha.

Wireless controllers won't work with the charger cable connected to a laptop, the wired controllers 100% work with windows 8, I use mine for playing minecrat.

What's the difference between this and a wired xbox contoller?

Wired and wireless all work with windows 8. No issues what so ever

You have to have the proper windows receiver plugged into the laptop or pc or it isnt going to work.

Or you can just download the program from Microsoft instead of an adapter. The program works for Mac too believe it or not.

How does that work then? The pads are RF, not Bluetooth. You need something to send the signal to!

Wireless requires the adapter
Wireless with 'play and charge' requires the adapter
Wired just needs drivers.
Windows 8 already includes the drivers.

Had it for years now, many hours of fun :D. Only PC controller you need really.

Works fine in win 8.1 x64, most of my games pick it up. No drivers required.

I was wondering about the Xbox One controller to replace the 360 controller I currently use on my PC. Does anyone know if it works, or if drivers are required?

And if the game doesn't support a controller, you can always use XPadder.

It's due any day now. I suspect @ E3 it'll be announced. Literally last week Microsoft said "very soon"

On my life it works. Just plugged it in & the controller powered up. my Xbox & it turned on & could use the controller as normal, I use the charging cable connected to a 5m usb cable plugged into my XBox all the time & works with no batteries & have 4 of these & all do the same, I put them as one of my deals in the past. They all work.

Sorry misread you reply. The controller does not work on a laptop. Just ment it powers the controller

i believe this is the standard price. i paid £20 for a legitimate xbox 360 controller (pc) just a month ago

Purchased sick of buying batteries and losing charge packs

You bought a wireless dongle, how is that in anyway related to a fully usable controller. What if you do not own a wireless controller?

Didn't the old white ones use to be £15 before? Also, the wireless one was £22.99 recently so I'm not really convinced.
