Wireless Game Controller for Xbox 360 and PC

The highly-rated Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Game Controller works on any Windows PC. Yes, it was designed for the Xbox console but it works brilliantly on a PC as well. You’ll need a Wireless Gaming Receiver to hook it up to your PC. They are available as stand-alone units.

Connecting the Xbox 360 Wireless Game Controller with your PC is easy once you have the USB receiver connected. Hold down the Guide button (with the Xbox logo on it) and the controller and the receiver will pair automatically. Integrated in the Xbox 360 is 2.4 GHz high-performance wireless technology that allows you to control the action from up to about 10 metres away. 

Now go to your game settings and choose Xbox 360 controller instead of keyboard. Some games will require you to manually assign buttons to game commands. If your favourite game does not support the Xbox 360 wireless controller you can download Xpadder to remap the keys – (Xpadder costs R90) – but you will find that most modern Windows-based games support the wireless controller.

The award-winning compact ergonomics of the Xbox 360 Wireless Game Controller features precise thumb sticks, two pressure-point triggers, and 8-way directional pad for enhanced PC gaming. Once you’ve plugged your headphones into the integrated headset jack, turned the volume up and feel the vibration feedback you’ll enjoy an exhilarating gaming experience.
