And does it work with the same Microsoft adapter? Why are these gamepads still so damn expensive lol

Buy a logitech one. I find it to be a lot more useful than the Microsoft gamepads.

Most game support the 360 wired controller, I use mine for a lot of racing games. there is also a program called xpadder to make it work with any games by translating its inputs into keyboard inputs.

Yeah wired is a no no. I already have the normal 360 pad. I want to know if the better one works too.

wants wrong with wired? I use mine all the time it works great. It has a USB plug on it, and you can get them for cheap.

if you have the wireless adapter for the computer, I am sure that it would work since the controllers work across all the xbox's and use the same wireless signal.

I am not a fan of the wired either, as.. well.. I don't like the wire hanging out and having the chance of getting caught up in my chair or the likes. Wireless gets right of that and as long as he has the battery pack, no need to worry bout buying batteries! =D I to use the wireless adapter, but I did not know that there was a version of the controller that had a better more reliable d-pad.

I just used wired. No need for wireless really.

Try the new Razer control pad, that's pretty slick and has two extra shoulder buttons aswell. It's a pretty nice pad.

It should work fine with the wireless xbox adapter that you are using.

Just get PS3 DualShock 3 and use Motioninjoy software. DS3 is cheap, comfy and battery lasts forever !

I can't believe so few people actually answered your question.

The new controller will work fine with the current wireless receiver, but I don't necessarily think the new dpad is much better.

I think the new controller is sold on newegg and amazon.
