So the controller is USB chargeable?

I'm wrong for the right.

Apparently, strange that I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere, because that's quite a positive thing.

Yeah last I heard the thing was only using double-A batteries. Frankly, I'd rather have a controller with a 4 inch long wire than one that uses double-A batteries. Thank God the thing's rechargeable.

It's rechargeable with the separately purchased rechargeable battery pack, or you can just use a set of rechargeable AA's.

So what you guys are telling me is if I put recharagbles in there they will charge by plugging in the USB?

The rechargeable battery pack, yes. Rechargeable AA's I'm not sure.

Ok if anyone watched the video about the controller posted on IGN then you'd know. So you can use a rechargeable battery pack ala the play and charge kit, or use AA batteries, though AA rechargeables won't charge through the controller. THEN you can also turn the controller into a wired controller, sans ANY batteries, by using a microUSB cable, which turns off the wireless radio on the controller.
