New XBox Controller Available

Microsoft has released the new XBox 360 controller, and if you have the Wireless Receiver for your PC, it will work with Windows 7 as well. I really need to finish my gaming PC and separate my development/work stuff from my gaming stuff and get one of these! I need more USB ports for my gaming controllers.

Now, if you happen to have an Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver connected to your Windows PC, guess what? You can use this new controller with your PC to play games just like you could with the older Xbox 360 Wireless Controller. So if you’re like me and prefer using a controller for PC gaming, this might be a good step-up especially with the transforming D-Pad. You can also use the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller to play the in-box games in Windows 7 like Chess Titans. Yes I like playing Chess on my PC with a Xbox 360 Wireless Controller. Truthfully I am really digging Batman: Arkham Asylum (I’ve got the “Game of the Year” Edition) being a huge Batman fan and can’t wait for its sequel and I’m going to be picking up Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. 2 which uses DirectX 11 for some awesome game-play.
