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!
