    Default 360 Wireless Controller

    Anyone know if it comes with a dongle to shove in the PC USB port or not, I bought one today but I don't wanna open it if it means I have to buy a tooth dongle as well.

    Doesn't come with one in the box, need to buy separately to use the wireless controller on a PC.

    IIRC the wired one will plug straight in.

    Also I don't think it's Bluetooth technology, I think it's a proprietary wireless one.

    They're £15 delivered here (although not currently in stock) but at least they let you use more than one controller at a time and also works with the headsets/wireless headset too. Buyer comments referred to it being available for £10, so I'm guessing a past offer and maybe available for a better price elsewhere?

    Depends if you play enough games on the PC as to whether you think it warrants buying one.

    I just found out the hard way, I'm trying to get it to communicate through the router dongle, which is a 2.4ghz wireless G.

    Ah, methinks you'll be onto a hiding there Ian. It's not a network device (the controller) so has no means of communicating with a network dongle - plus they're completely different things. Router/dongle will be working one way, the controller is a completely different thing.

    Yeah, I think you could be right, still if I can get the utility up I should be able to go a hunting for it.

    Thx, Novatech ave them for £15, I might just try my luck and return the thing tomorrow, after all there's nothing to say whats in the blister packet, so one won't know until one opens it will he, when anything else is branded wireless it normally contains two devices, one to send and one to receive, but hell it is MS again innit.
