PostSubject: Wireless Xbox 360 Controller   Thu Jan 31, 2008 11:24 pm

This thing is a marvel.

I love it. First off, perfect size for my hands. I have bigger hands, and when I play PS2 at my buddy's house ( I don't bring my 360 anywhere ) I feel like I'm playing with a Fisher Price toy. Not to mention I always feel as if the Fisher Price toy is going to break, but more on that later.

Second, it's light-weight. It's perfectly comfortable in my hands at all times.

Third. Triggers!!! I was a former hardcore PS2 nut, and never ever saw myself buying an Xbox. I was sold on the PS3 years before it came out. I'm glad I didn't go down the Sony road. These triggers are awesome, and developers have found some of the coolest ways to use them.

Fourth. This stuff is quality. And I mean it. Microsoft-made controllers last. I've had my 360 since March 2007, so about 11 months. Almost a year!! And I have not had one single problem with my controller. Sadly, I cannot say that for PS2 controllers. Frankly, PS2 controllers suck. They just don't live up to these babies. I remember buying countless Sony-made controllers after they would just break. Just stop working. I would find that usually the R2 or L2 buttons (which are now triggers on the 360) would stick in, and once that happened, I realized the entire controller was screwed. I would literally buy a new PS2 controller every 2 or 3 months. They're just not made like the Microsoft controllers.

Yeah, I've been really happy with the Xbox 360 controllers (though one of mine was messed up. The A button would randomly stop working, but I fixed replaced it and now all of mine are great). I was reading an article about Halo 3 multiplayer before it was released, and Bungie commented that the Xbox 360 controller was ideal for shooters.

I couldn't agree more.

This controller rules for FPS games.

Something I did not mention: if you own a wireless controller, and still use batteries, get the Play & Charge kit. Twenty bucks, but will save you a bundle in the long run.

I've realized that the wireless controller does not use the vibrate function when its running low on batteries.

Weird... I didn't know that about the low battery thing. I have a play and charge kit (awesome) so I plug my controller in as soon as I see the flashing circle on the controller. Oh that's another cool feature! You can see how charged your controller is with the dashboard update!

Lol sweet. I've bought OXM discs in the past, perhaps they update the system
