Microsoft has made mention that the Xbox 360 controller will be fully compatible with the Windows operating system and its games.
“Joining the Game Precision Series later this year will be the new Xbox 360 Controller for Windows, a wired gaming controller that works with Windows XP-based PCs and the new Xbox 360 system to deliver a consistent gaming entertainment experience across Microsoft’s gaming platforms,” the Redmond firm said in press release.
Windows gamers will no doubt be pleased to have access to a decent gaming pad, especially from Microsoft and especially if it can go from the PC to the Xbox 360.
The price of the pad will be $44.99 in the US.
No word yet on if the wired controller that comes with the basic box will work on Windows based PC’s, but I would not be surprised if it does. Also, this would make me want the wired controllers more than the wireless as I am never all that far from my computer or console anyways.
