I need to get a new controller, but I don't want to get any wireless. I'm fine with wired controllers. But all official controllers are wireless. I know that there are official wired controllers for XB 360, but I don't feel like ordering one On-line. I simply want to go to the store and buy one.
But all they have the RockCandy ones, and I am dubious on their quality and functionality.
So are they any good, or should I just skip it altogether ?

Thanks in advance.

I bought one. Not the worst. I don't like the way the sticks feel.

Why not just order it online? It will be cheaper and you'll be guaranteed the quality of a first-party controller.

They are pretty good, especially considering the price. I would throw some Grip-It analog covers on them.

Some stores still carry official wired controllers, which I recommend over anything else...official wireless included.

Agreed. The stick feels a bit rough, and it's not as sensitive as the official controllers, but otherwise they're pretty good. I bought mines on Amazon, take a look around sometimes certain colors are cheaper than the others.

You can buy official Wired controllers in pretty much every store that sells controllers

That being said I love the Razer wired controllers that have the clickable buttons and the programmable bumpers. It's useful cuz if there's a game where you have to press ABXY a lot you can program it to a bumper so you never have to move your thumbs from the analog sticks.

I haven't seen a store carrying official wired 360 controllers in a long time.

8 out of 14 Wal-Marts near me have Official Wired Controllers in stock

None of the stores in my area have the official wired controllers. They have the wireless ones out the wazoo, but I don't want a wireless controller.

As far as 3rd-Party controllers, I am limited to gamestop brand, Rock Candy, and some other cheap Wal-Mart brand, as well as the ones that are clear & light up (which I bought & don't like).

Plus, I don't want to spend a lot of money, because money is tight.
But I don't want to waste money by buying a product that will crap out on me after a few months, or that has such cheap quality that buttons stick or analog sticks tend to wear out rather quickly.
I know I am putting myself in a peculiar position, but that is why I am asking around here...for your guys' help.

And Thanks again for all the responses.
I need a controller fairly badly.

The preceding is a list of reasons why TC should buy his controller online.
