What do you all think of this "3rd party" xbox controller? Now, IM not to fond of 3rd party controllers but when I buy my games and my 2 controller its gonna be around 200$ payin for all that soo I want to try to make it cheaper for me to buy sooooo this is my only way lol.So what do u think of this controller? It does look almost exactly like the actual xbox controller except w/o the "X" logo in the middle and hey i wont be using the 3rd party controller lol just the ppl who will be playin w/ me will be lol I GOT MY "offical" xbox controller that ill be using :)

"When comfort counts, you can count on this X-wing Controller, which is designed specifically for Xbox™. Not only is it sized down so it fits your hand, but it also has rubberized grips for even more comfort. This controller also features built-in vibration and fully analog buttons."

The cost of the controller is 24.99$. ANd if you want more information on the controller then click the link below:

this controller sucks. I thirnk Vortax (silver and black,, the cool one) controller is slightly better.

Trust me, wait a bit, get some more money and buy official controllers. They sure costs a lot money but that worths. That will last longer :D

p.s. If u want ur buddies to play with it, What if the responceness of the controller is bad and then it will be like ur friend firing now and the bullet will come out 5 minutes later ;) then they are gonna blame the Xbox :(

The thumbsticks are too big on these controlelrs. I would stick with official controllers.

2 words= eBay... or maybe thats one word.
