    Compusa has a XBOX controller for $9.99 after Instant $10.00 rebate. Is this any good. Company called Hip Gear,never heard of them.
    Also whats the best price you've seen on a Wireless controller.

    My guess is you'll get what you pay for. [​IMG] I have yet to see an Xbox controller that improves upon Microsoft's S Controller. That said for a "just in case" backup or spare when the odd extra gamer stops by this can't be beat.
    Don't know much about wireless pricing but the only controllers I know of right now are from MadCatz and Logitech. Both been reviewed quite well. I think they're around the US$50 range. Note that neither include the accessory slots so you won't be able to use the Xbox Communicator with Live.

    The sad thing is it looks as though they're using a picture of a Controller-S in the add, and then just slapping Hip Gear's name where the Xbox logo would normally be. Take a look at the add and tell me what you think.
