Default XBOX 360 Controller for 20$ at NCIX

For those who like gamepad, i think the wireless xbox 360 controller for 20$ is an excellent deal : NCIX.com - Buy XBox 360 Wireless Controller White *Recertified - B4F-00001-B In Canada.

Awesome for those (like me) who want lots of gamepads to emulate old school games with friends!

Warning, this does not come with the usb receiver.

Its the actual x-box 360 controller (not the pc version). If you have an xbox-360 the transmitter is built into the console and the receiver in the controller. I believe it requires you already having a usb receiver if you want to use it with your computer.

Yeah that's what i thought too. It was meant for those who already owned a controller with a receiver who wanted extra controllers...

They sell the USB dongle by itself too for like $25 at Future Shop.

This is it: Xbox.com | Accessories - Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows
