    According to the xbox website:

    Precision engineering: The Wireless Controller is precise, accurate, and has the same speed and responsiveness as its wired brother.

    Is this definitely true? I was expecting there to at least be some loss of reponsivness and speed.

    If there was why would anyone use it!!!! the same thing goes for the wavebird for the GC, just as good as a wired one, minus the vibration effect

    Becasue it has no wires. I'm not saying I was expecting a massive difference, just a small amount.

    I hear what your saying , but games are all about reactions, so if your using a product that doesn't react as quickly as another your not going to use it are you. Imagine if your playing PES5 and when you press the tackle button at the same time as someone else, but they are using a wired one, but they win the tackle as thier player responded quicker, your not going to use the wireless one are you

    That's what I was concerned about. You've reassured me.

    Microsoft wouldn't be including a wireless controller with their console and be pushing wireless if the controllers weren't as precise as wired ones. As has been said, the Wavebird showed that wireless controllers can be done with zero lag.

    I had a wireless controller for xbox and Gamecube. Never noticed any differance in speed. I use a wireless mouse for BF2, no differance there either.

    The only differance is my kids don;t walk past the controller knocking it out.

    Sounds good. i've had a wireless controller for my PS2 which I think was infa red. It was useless. You had to have it at 90 degrees to the port at all times.
