If you're like me, you hate wires. Wires get tangled, cause trouble when friends get up from the couch, and restrict movement. Madcatz did a great job with their wireless XBox controller!
We've tried many wireless controllers in the past that were very heavy, clunky, unresponsive, and expensive. This Madcatz controller ran around $30 at the local store and is QUITE light. We were very impressed with how well it felt in the hand.
Just about any wireless controller nowadays uses 2.4 GHz wireless technology which means it's not directional. You don't have to "point" your controller at the receiver to get it to work, it just works as long as it's anywhere within the radius of control (around 30'). Responsiveness is great, and it runs on 3 AA batteries.
It is just so great to play a game without the wires getting caught on tables, tripping people who walk through the room, or dragging at you as you try to play the game.
Well recommended for XBox gamers who are tired of cables cluttering up their gaming room!
