It does, after years of using a wireless controller I borrowed a wired controller from a friend and noticed a difference right away. The reason for this is because since a wired controller is wired directly into the Xbox, there is absolutely zero latency between your action on the controller and the action on the screen. A wired controller has a slight delay. The difference is not big, but you'll notice it if you've used a wireless controller for a long time. --- This is my sig ya dig?
The average human does not have the ability to perceive any difference between the two, if there is even a difference to begin with. The difference between the two in latency is not that significant. Truly, the only real advantage to a wired controller is that you won't have the batteries run out during play. --- Perfection. Where everyone fails. If you expect nothing you can be happy for everything.
But the difference is so minor that it won't matter. Unless you're playing in a large tournament for a prize, where people have the reaction speeds of a damn greek god. --- Breakfast foods can serve many purposes ~Ron Swanson
The difference only matters for PC games where you need to make a series of extremely fast and accurate clicks. And even then it's iffy. Certainly in a game like Halo, the difference is negligible, and probably unnoticable altogether
Tube TV v.s. an HD tv is a way more noticeable difference IMO.
When you can make a tv with the instant feedback of a tube tv with the graphics of an HD tv, I will give you all the money. --- The mind of the subject will desperately struggle to create memories where none exist... ~~Just give me all the bacon and eggs you have~~
