High-performance wireless gaming is here! Using optimized 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 —and when they run low, you're given ample warning so you can connect a Play & Charge Kit for uninterrupted play. Plug the Xbox 360 Headset into the controller for full two-way voice communication: a wireless first.
I own an xbox 360 myself and as standard it came with a wired xbox 360 gamepad. After several weeks of playing I decided to upgrade my controller to something that I believe was worth buying. Being wireless, it provides more freedom to move around without having a wire dangling out the back. The buttons are very easy to use and are situated in good accessable places for easy reach of use. I firmly believe that the xbox 360 wireless gamepad is one of the best controllers ever designed and cannot be faulted at all!
