Shoto's weekly deal is great this week. £20 for the controller and bateery is a steal.

Don't forget 4% Quidco too and the battery is worth £9.99, making the controller a tenner.

Theres a £2 voucher you could get with Eurogamer bringing it down to £17.99 and possible 4% Quidco.

Plus, I wouldn't recommend Gaming Extreme after the Lost Odyssey fiasco. You'll get free next day delivery from Shopto as well. You'll probably be waiting over a week to get it from Gaming Extreme.

Was going to post this deal but you don't get a charge kit with it, so not a hot deal for me

You dont get a charge kit with ANY wireless controller...

Yes i know, but there was a similar deal on Tesco i think for £17.99, can't remember if the charge kit was with it, but when you buy one separately to go with this it doesn't seem such a good deal after all

so what is the lowest you can get this?

Don't most people already have charge kits for the controllers they already have?

Do you get wireless controllers with every 360 ? :whistling:

Yes i think now.



You can get the recharge cable off ebay pretty cheap

That's a great deal, as the extra battery is about £10 on its own and you can get the cable dirt cheap on Ebay.

We actually need another rechargable battery, so I'm tempted to get this, as the other controller is starting to look knackered for when my bro throws it about after getting annoyed playing some people online. :giggle:

No. There was not a charge kit with it. Please read what I said, you don't get a charge kit with any controller.

Although I agree that this isn't a brilliant deal for 'a controller', it's a good deal for one of the coloured versions (if thats what you want).

Saying its not a hot deal because it doesnt come with a charge kit (as you did) when NO contoller does, is just complete crazy talk.

I'm entitled to have my opinion uncontested, thank you very much.

And considering the colours are rubbish, i've already got 2 black, you don't get a charge kit although you get a battery and it's dearer than elsewhere, it's not a hot deal AT ALL.

Your opinion means naff all if you're voting things cold for stupid reasons. EVERY controller comes with 2xAA non rechargable batteries, and NO charge kit. Including ones that come with the consoles. You don't seem to be understanding this simple concept.

Sure, if you dont like the colours thats a valid opinion. If its cheaper elsewhere, thats a valid reason. But you didn't originally mention anything about these being the reasons why you didn't think, for you, that it wasn't a good offer.

You just continued (and still do, apparently) to cling onto the fact you were voting it cold because it doesnt come with a charge kit. Ignoring me telling you that NO CONTROLLER COMES WITH A CHARGE KIT.

Thats like me voting every single post there is on the site cold, because it doesnt come with a free garden shed.

does this come with an xbox 360? i saw it in the title

Lol, that was a weird arguement and it looks like the deals heat rating has reached triple figures afterall. lol

The deal is very good, as the cheapest I've ever seen the wireless controller for the 360 of any colour is £18, which comes with a controller but no rechargable battery pack or cable.

The rechargable battery packs lowest price yet is £9, which means the cheapest you could find this deal elsewhere is £27 (which are both the current prices as well) thusly saving you £7 compared to anywhere else.

Yes, it would be nice if it did come with the cable but no other controller deal has ever come readily supplied with this cable and can be purchased next to nothing on Ebay.

You have to bare in mind that most gamers will also already have this cable, so why would someone want to pay an additional cost for something they won't need, as very rarely you will require to charge more than 1 pad at a time?

Anyway, everyone is valid to an opinion and everyone is valid to provide an opinion agreeing or disagreeing with it providing it's valid, as that's what forums are about.

If anyone can actually find me a bundle online that includes the controller and rechargable battery pack and the cable and it's at a equal or lower price, can you please post it on here for all of us to see and we can all benefit from it. :giggle:

Anyway....using the common sense approach, this is indeed a hot price for £19.99 as the controller itself is regularly priced at £32.99 in the shops and the battery is £9.99.

I bought this same controller and battery for £23.99 last week and I thought that was a bargain.

Wow, I didn't see the battery pack was available from DVD.co.uk for only £6, which is great value if you want it on it's own but it's still more expensive as a bundle. :thumbsup:

I've never heard of anyone not receiving their orders before from Shopto..do you have any proof of this, as I've ordered from here about 20 times over the last year or so?

Apologies...got completely mixed up. Edited accordingly.

Theres no comma between xbox 360 and wireless controller, so its an Xbox 360 wireless controller so it doesnt say it in the tittle.
