Yah, I was really impressed by my nephews controllers as he was kicking my tail in Halo. It feels very well made, quite well designed and engineered.The voice communication feature thay have is way cool too, you just plug your headphones into the controller itself and yer all set.

I've got a couple controllers here since I use the x box.  I might pick a
receiver up as well. I really love this controller.

 Hey, thanks for that Liam , I went from that page to one that had a 360
wireless controller that works with windows or x box plus receiver for 50
bucks, so I went ahead and got it, the reviews were mostly glowing, except
for some problems using other wireless devices while using the controller,
which won't affect my sysstem.
 Overall, a good deal, as my nephew bought a wireless x box controller at
Wal Mart for right at 50 dollars, and of course it didn't include the
wireless receiver for windows.
 I'll report back how it works when I get it.
 Thanks again,
Che

The 360 wireless controller needs a special receiver.

Hmm, how are they hooking the PS3 controllers up hardware wise to the PC?
Also, I know you can plug an x box controller directly into the pc via
USB,
but what about the wireless controllers that work with the x box 360, read
anything on being able to use those on PC?
later

Hi Orin,
Well, supporting PS3 game controllers under Windows is rather
problematic.

As usual Sony does not officially support using a PS3controller with PC
games so there are no official drivers etc out there for them, and
DirectX

doesn't understand the PS3 input values. There are, however, hacks and
work arounds out there on the web for getting a PS3 controller working
under Windows. I've even heard someone has written Windows XP/Vista
compatible drivers for the PS3 controllers so if you are interested in
using a PS3 game controller with Blood Money or any other PC game then
I'd

google for drivers.
That said one thing I can say about Microsoft is that now that they have
updated DirectX and XNA to use newer input libraries such as XInput it is much easier for a Windows game developer to support XBox 360 controllers.
the process is fairly well documented, there are official drivers for
XBox

controllers out there, and a developer doesn't have to jump through hoops
to support them. To a game developer, such as myself, there is a big
difference in supporting a controller like the XBox ones that are fairly
straight forward and easy to support than a PS3 controller which is by
nature not officially PC compatible. Althougfh, you can do it if you have
the right hacks or third-party drivers installed etc.

HTH
