X360 Wireless for PCs

Microsoft has just begun shipping the Wireless Xbox 360 Controller for Windows, giving gamers their first chance at using the cordless edition of the console gamepad on a suitably equipped PC. The pad works with computers by attaching a separate 2.4GHz receiver to the computer through USB, replicating the Xbox 360's unique wireless standard. The gamepad is fully interchangeable with the versions sold for the console and retains support for both the wired and wireless headsets, Microsoft says. The built-in vibration feedback will also kick in when supported by a given title.

The wireless controller officially requires a Windows XP system and is available for $60. Inidividual receivers are also available for those with the previously Xbox 360-only wireless controller for $20.
