The price of these things seems to be going down all the time. Now you can get hold of an Xbox 360 wireless gamepad for just £16.99 from The Game collection. According to price comparison the next cheapest price for a brand new wireless game pad comes in at £19.95 from Shopto.
However bear in mind that this wireless pad is brand new but ‘unboxed’ which may be a bit off putting for the slightly neurotic out there, but for the rest who aren’t really bothered by that kind of thing, this is a superb deal. The Game Collection currently have 934 in stock.
Of course the benefits of going wireless are fairly obvious. For a start, without all those annoying wires your gaming area looks a lot less cluttered. Also – and this is something which caused me to break two Playstation consoles – there’s no risk of sending your console crashing to the floor after you jump up to answer the phone and the damn wire gets wrapped round your foot.
In terms of specifications, this controller has a 30 foot range – way more than anyone is ever going to need. It is capable of getting 40 hours life out of two AA batteries and the controller will give you plenty of warning when these are running low. This is particularly useful if you have one of those Play and Charge Kits. Overall, for a better all round experience from your Xbox 360, one (or even two) of these pads is a great investment.
