Xbox 360 Control Pad
More for pc gamers.
I only say its more for PC gamers because, if you don't have the XBOX 360 right infront of you, it could get in the way, like a trip wire. It is for a extra/spare controler for a xbox due to its short cord, but for PC gamers its great! PC gamers can use it on the computer because of the usb plug in the controler, if you are a PC gamer that plays FPS games or any other type of game, this product is for you! The only thing is the price, needs to lower.
Just Pay The Extra $15.00
I purchased this controller because I was trying to save some money and the offical xbox 360 controller by microsoft was a little more than I wanted to pay for a controller. The first couple of days I used the controller it seemed fine. You don't need to spend money on batteries because the controller comes with a nice length cord. Also the controller seemed to be built strurdy and it felt comfortable in my hands. But after the first few days the controller started showing its true colors. The y,a,b buttons seem to stick some(especially the a). When you press one of these buttons it just doesn't feel like 100% spring when it pops back up. It might not be that bad with some games but this problem will eventually be noticed with other games. I played Sonic Generations with this controller and it was a pain. I sometimes need to press the a(jump button) mutiple times within a short period to jump from platform to platform with sonic. The button will usually stick down some and not pop back immediately. This problem makes simple jumping annoying and a chore in sonic generations. I also have problems using this controller with gears of war 2. I need to use the a button a lot in that game and it sticks to much . I never feel comfortable doing rolls or taking cover because I don't know if the button will pop back up immediately. I would NOT recommend this controller to anyone because some of the buttons stick and are not responsive enough even if they don't stick. It will become a chore to do simple things in games if you use this controller. Just pay the extra $15.00 and get the xbox 360 microsoft controller.
Worth the low price.
It might be different than the microsoft brand wired or wireless controllers, but is very much worth the $25. I've dropped it many times, and it has held up better than my more expensive ones every did. It's a great buy for those who are looking for a cheap, but reliable replacement for your microsoft controllers. Another thing, it is very easy to get used to the change, and I don't have any complaints about layout or feel. Thanks Gamestop!
This controller has a very akward feel to it, the triggers are different along with the shape and size of the controller. Before I used a wireless controller for 2 years before it broke and this was my backup. The up side to it, you get used to it very fast.
Button placement, general feel.
To start with, before getting this controller I used a Microsoft brand rechargeable controller almost exclusively. That said, my biggest problem with this controller is trigger buttons. They are quite different, and it feels awkward to hold. Overall, I find it generally uncomfortable, but that is probably because I am not used to it. If you are looking for an inexpensive controller, and don't mind getting used to new design, then this is great for you. As for me, I just found out that there are replacement for the charge pack on the controller I was using. I'll be picking one up tomorrow.
Good but buy it new not pre-owned
I bought this with my christmas gift cards. Unfortunately it broke within the first week. But i bought it pre-owned instead of new. A week later i just ended up getting a differnt kind of wired controller.
has advantages over wireless
this is better than wireless because you save money on batteries this product no batteries also the cord is super long so its kinda like having a wireless remote the only thing I hate is that only 2 of these can be pluged in the xbox at once oh well still get it
Good and better than EXPENSIVE $59.99 wireless controllers never had problems. And you dont waste money buying batteries that are useless.Just because the wireless controllers look god dosnt mean their good people.
Not the best!
This controller is not worth the price you have to pay. Everytime you use the controller sticks your fingers slip off because they have no grip what so ever on them. :(
i bought this controller a while back it worked perfectly but it fell down and broke . very good but not to damage resistant
