Generic Xbox 360 Controller Receiver for PC - $9.99 Free Shipping at Meritline

120
MLCKE29GNL1

Hey guys, got this in the Monday deals email and it seems pretty sweet, bought one right away. Usually they seem to be about $15-20 on ebay so this is pretty good. Note that you'll need to sign in to the website (before proceeding to checkout) to be allowed to enter a coupon code.

I've called it generic as it's a pretty fair assumption this isn't a genuine microsoft product, but if it works I'm not complaining.

As a side note, pccg has the Cyborg R.A.T 7 contagion for $85 on sale at the moment. I'll post a seperate deal for it in an hour or whenever the limit is.

    Whilst I'm not sure about this brand. I have bought generic x360 -> USB for windows from ebay and I could never get it to work.

    If anyone can't figure out by themselves to get these third party ones to work, jus msg me. Used one ages ago before i got a real one bundled with a controller. :)

    $7 on eBay. I got one, works fine. To get it to work find the unsupported device in 'Device manager' and add the drivers that come with the disc.

      Yeah, this is a great product if you have a gaming PC and games that are better on controller (or just want to rest that mousing arm), but it can generally be found under $10 delivered on ebay.

      or choose to find the driver in the list of hardware (xbox 360 reciever for windows)….I only say this because driver discs from china are notorious for viruses.

      •  

        Good point, seemed fine though as I swept the PC afterwards for viruses and it was A-OK.

        •  

          Good to hear, don't get me wrong I have chinese android phone and tablets no probs….but disc's…..im cautious there. :)

    Can I use this with the old XBOX wireless headset?

    •  

      I wish i could confirm, but i lost my headset when i moved house…..however i do think i remember doing so myself at my old place.

    These turn your PC into a couch gaming powerhouse. I bought one on ebay when Steam Big Picture came out and never looked back.

    If you have a few xbox controllers lying around, you can connect 4 controllers to these usually and it works great, perfect for games like castle crashers with some friends on the couch.

    This 100% works with Win7 but you need to go digging in control panel and force install the Windows Controller driver for it as Windows will only recognise this as a generic hardware.

  •  

    Yeah I got one of the official ones with a controller I bought. Great little device, unfortunately my controller got wrecked but I got new ones.

    I use it mainly when I want to sit back and relax while playing campaign.
    Or hook up 2 controllers to play games with my brother. Castle crashers is great, and to find other local/couch co-op games check http://www.co-optimus.com/ which is what I use and it is great.

    Finished castle crashers co-op, and now playing rayman origins co-op.

    Saying that, you can get the receiver for ~$7 on ebay http://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?_sacat=0&_sop=15&_nkw=wire...

    These are the cheap generic clone ones. Got one a while back from ebay (HK seller with Red cd). Since it is no longer possible to buy the official MS wireless adapter separately without purchasing another controller which I didn't need. Works well on my pc running 64 bit windows 7 pro to play Skyrim.

    Since I had a spare controller left over from an old stuffed 360 console and wanted to make use of it. Makes playing pc games like Skyrim and Call Of Duty so much more fun. Since I'm not a big fan of using the Keyboard/Mouse to play pc games.

      I'm currently using a reciever to play games on my laptop on a 55" inch tv, hiding under layers of blanket for warmth. Quite enjoyable despite being a keyboard and mouse user :)

    Ebay ones work just as well as the real ones.

    1. Download the windows 7 driver here (just pick any of the 64/32 bit):
      https://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-au/d/xbox-360-wireless...
    2. Install it
    3. Open Device manager and look for the unknown device
    4. Right click update driver software —> "browse my computer for driver software" —> "Pick from a list of device drivers"
    5. select the wireless receiver driver for windows version 6.2.9200.16384

    and it should work to sync by pressing the xbox button and the button on the receiver. If it doesn't use a play and charge kit and plug the controller into the computer. It should recognise it and sync quicker

      Thanks for the link, I'll trust that infinitely more than whatever comes with the dongle. Hopefully it works when it eventually arrives :)

      •  

        The drivers are actually already in W8. You just need to pick them out manually.

    I've made a couple from RRoD 360s. Pretty easy if you have soldering skill and the diodes are cheap. :)
