About 360 gamepad for pc (wireless) - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I have the wireless receiver and use all my xbox controllers in emulators and what not, super fun, and works very well. When I shut down the computer the wireless receiver shuts off and the controller would eventually shut off by itself, otherwise you have to unplug the battery pack which I find does not bother me at all, I do that on Xbox too because I find it faster .

It is still a weird thing that there is not a button to turn off the gamepad for PC. At least we should do it via software. I am still undecided between the wired and wireless. I decided to buy a RAT 7 infection mouse so the gamepad can wait another month as it is not a priority,

So I ordered one of these things about 6 weeks ago and could not be happier.

 

Also it doesnt matter if there is a turn on or off switch as taking out the batteries and putting them back on is pretty much as fast as pushing a button.

 

Some PC games wouldn't be as great without a 360 gamepad.

The ability to turn it on and off is kinda irrelevant, it shuts itself off after a period of non use. It's not like it just sits there all day draining the batteries. I havn't been playing anything with my 360 controller in months and the batteries still show as full.

Yeah I agree. I made a big deal about it before purchasing it but it is not a dealbreaker or anything else.

 

Hands down the best controller in the market.

 

Incredible compatbility with games.
