Found 18th Jun 2011Made hot 19th Jun 2011
Looks to be the older edition (Xbox 360 Elite) wireless controllers, but for a better price than the £19.99 deals floated around for the newer (all black) ones the other week.

High-performance wireless gaming is here! Using optimised technology, the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller lets you enjoy a 30-foot range and up to 40 hours of life on the two included AA batteries - and when they run low, you're give ample warning so you can connect a Play & Charge Kit for uninterrupted play. Plug the Xbox 360 Headset into the controller for the full two-way voice communication: a wireless first.

2.4GHz wireless technology with 30-foot range
Use up to four controllers simultaneously on one console
Integrated headset port for Xbox LIVE play
Adjustable vibration feedback for longer battery life
New left and right shoulder buttons are designed for ease of use
Use the Xbox 360 Guide button to keep track of your friends, access your games and media, or power on and off your Xbox 360 console

Such a shame it isn't the newer one. Would have definately gotten. Regardless, superb deal so heat added :3.

Good deal. I saw these second hand in Game the other day for £27.99!

Such a shame it isn't the newer one.

Didn't even know there were different editions of this, what are the differences?

No other difference whatsoever. So i don't know why "it's a shame" as another user posted. unless he meant the new silver one with the convertable D-pad

no sorry i should have been more clear... I no it's wireless but how does the wireless thingy work? does it have a receptor? Are the batteries rechargeable? Can this be used on a PC for ex?

Again i apologise for my lack of knowledge, just hope someone can enlighten me.

Sounds to me like you're sizing it up for use with a PC. In which case, yes you can use it with a PC as long as you get a receiver to go with it, which probably negates the cost saving as they're not that cheap themselves. They use AA batteries so you can use rechargeables in it, or use the rechargeable battery packs included with the play and charge kit or Quick Charge Kit. That's about the extent of my knowledge, and I did no research on the prices of the other stuff so they're probably available cheaper elsewhere. Hope that sheds a little light on things. I use this controller myself with a few PC games and it works a treat.

Thanks alot for this. you're probably right though, because it does negate the cost saving as i'll have to but all the other stuff that goes with it.
I think i might just by myself a wired xbox pad. At the moment im using a ps2 pad connected through a psx adaptor but it doesn not provide me with Force Feedback which is not good in games like Dirt 2/3.

Thank you again.

1) Wired (black or white)

2) wireless white

3) wireless black

4) wireless 360 S (like the wireless black but slightly more matte)

5) wireless silver (special d pad)
