Yeah but just as other people have said before, not all games have compatibilty with a cheap controller. Plus, you'll have to assign each button to a certain function in-game with every game.

Using a 360 controller, will automatically set the button configs to their X360 counterparts.

Hi guys, I'm currently bidding for the Cordless Rumble 2 by logitech over at ebay. If I win the auction, this would be my selection, if not I'll have to start looking for the xbox controller.

Anyone know anything about the Rumble 2?

2.4 GHz Wireless with 30-foot Range: Get precise control with no lag.

if you have a wireless card (which most are on the 2.4GHz frequency) then you will get really bad wireless connections, I know this because my phone is a 2.4GHz wireless and my dad decided to stick it next to the router

Mate a wired would better since they are cheaper and need no recharging.

I already have an energizer AA battery charger with 4 batteries that I use for my camera, so I think the battery is not an issue. Unless, if using rechargable batteries are known to cause problems?

Although I've got the Logitech Rumblepad 2, I have to spend time configuring each to recognise it (and I can't always get rumble to work). I don't know what possessed me to buy it given that the XBox360 controller is plug and play in the truest sense, pretty much all recent games natively support it so no configuration is required, and it's such a comfortable device to hold.
