What are the size of the Xbox controllers? I got one for the PS3 and that sucker is TINY.

Only slightly smaller, but not by much at all.

I have a Rock Candy wired pad and it does the job. The sticks are not on par with the official sticks but they are comfortable enough to get used to.

I bought a green one a while ago and it had a short in the wire fairly soon after buying it. Returned it fora different one and it's been alright so far. The short was frustrating considering I don't recall doing anything to cause it. I assume they are just cheap but you get what you pay for.

If the wire is too short you can always use a USB extension cor...oh A SHORT in the wire, not a wire that is too short...

never mind...

I use the afterglow controllers and they are great. A bit more expensive than rock candy, but work awesome. I don't even use the lights, just keep them shut off

I would recommend purchasing a first party wired controller online.

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.


Got a Fry's near you anywhere??? They might have one.

At the very least you could try to find a store that would order something for you.

If anyone is looking for a cheap Rock Candy controller and is willing to spend $10, Microsoft currently has the purple version on sale at their online store for 8.99...

I'm thinking I might order one to take apart and put in the spare button/thumbsticks I have from when I converted my classic white 360 controller to the Transforming D-Pad shell. Anyone ever open one up to know if they have the same button tab layout?
