Discover greater precision, comfort, and control. The Wireless Xbox 360 Controller for Windows delivers a consistent and universal gaming experience across both of Microsoft's gaming systems. Experience the ultimate gaming experience on Windows XP and Xbox 360.

Youve got the wrong one buddy.

The controller you have allows you to use the xbox 360 controller with your PC but i dont think you can use it with the xbox 360

]Do you mean this one?

If so, then it says "Compatible Game Consoles: PC, Microsoft Xbox 360"

Yes, thats the one. They were on offer a week or so ago and I thought I'd get son a spare for Xmas. Confused as to wherther it can be used on Xbox and pc, don't know if I need to return it.

SO YOU GOT THE CONTROLLER and the receiver, how much for?

might be better off returning it and getting a controller on its own :thumbsup:

or sell the receiver one went for £9 on here last week

Many thanks, seems like I may have got a bargain for £17.99 then.
