    I need to get another controller for my XBox, and was wondering what people think is the best one out. I like the offical S Controller and find it quite comfey...but are there any that people would recommend over the offical one?

    I prefer the original controller personally.

    If you've got big hands, it is IMHO the best controller available. Especially for racing games!

    I like the controller S. Madcatz do great third party controllers if you're looking for an alternative, best I've experienced. They do a Micro version (smaller than the S) which my wife uses and a normal S size one.

    I like this one from Play, got 2 of them, and rate them higher than the official Microsoft ones, really comfy, and really, really cheap! :thumbsup:

    Where'd you get the wireless one, and how much (if you don't mind me asking ;) ).

    from play as well £17.99 delivered. Personally I can't feel any difference in responsiveness between this and a wired one. Only two cons really. 1) it takes 3 AAA batteries which is a bit odd and 2) I cant have my video sender on while i'm using it. Which are minor really
