Xbox 360 owners have reported on discussion forums and review sites widespread problems with the wireless gaming receiver, an accessory that enables the use of the videogame's controller with PC games.
You bloody people don't even check the news to make sure it's not a duplicate before approving it. You're just way too anxious to approve it because it's a negative news for Xbox 360. This got approved so bloody fast by the same bunch of fanboys (Rowland, drtysouf21, MaximusPrime, xbox360jimmy07, bebo) that they did not even give anyone the time to look for the duplicate.
from the 360 camp is that this has nothing to do with us. Its a pc device not a 360 device.
duplicate but Microsoft come on can anything you make be reliable?
MS did a great job with the other wireless accessories, they've worked flawlessly for me, I figured this would've worked just as well. Good thing I have a wired controller to as a backup. ;)
im sorry if i dont hav EVERY story memorized on this site since i dont log on 24/7.
Why is this even listed under the 360? Its not a 360 accessory, its for the PC. AND its a duplicate of a story from yesterday. But hey, if it might look bad for Microsoft, then hey POST IT AS NEWS!!!
there is a VERY CLEAR duplicate story search engine in the submission process.
But I don't blame you. I blame the report system, which can take 50 reports and the story will still get approved.
How is it not a 360 accessory? It does have "Xbox 360" written on it after all. Duh!
duh! its not a wireless network adaptor its a wireless gaming reciever! you plug it into your pc to use wireless pads. duh!
and not even relevant.
I guess this is news. Fanboys may eat this one up.
1) download the xbox360 gaming controller drivers from microsoft.com
2) get a wired 360 gaming controller and attach it to your pc's usb, that'll fix it.
3) if it still doesn't work: check your wireless controller, it's a sixaxis, you ps3 fanboy crybaby, people who approve news like this are just fanboy crybabies
plus, 360 owners don't need this attachment, it's the PC owners who do.
Wrong Title Mister beginning of the end.
MS's products don't work properly? WOW THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS PEOPLE.
another ignoble fanboy
Why would 360 owners be reporting on this? when it should be PC owners/users?
As for that I've not had any problems with it, I swear people must piss on their microsoft products before trying to use them cause i've never had the problems people describe.
~_* ""The problems appeared to have had an impact on sales. Microsoft in July reported that sales of the Xbox 360 plunged 60% in the fiscal fourth quarter.""
Really? lol kind of funny last i checked late july begin of auguest sales shot up high againest the 100 dollar price drop of the ps3...
should be chinese LOL!!
im the least racist person that you'll ever meet.that doesnt change the fact that chinese products are cheap.
does telling the truth makes me racist?
Next thing you know, the xbox360 will have lead in them. I own shares of stock of Microsoft
xbox owners are really bad people. They don't ever let other people enjoy their leisure time.
We don't want xbox people near our children, schools, or community.
But then again I've got no other wireless PC peripherals. I'd like to know what the specific problems are though.
got my cell phone, my cordless phones, my router, my wireless nic cardin my computer, my wireless mouse and keybord, my wireless controllers for ps3, and 360 and wii....
and i've yet to have a problem.
I thought that this device was designed to allow you to use your 360 controllers with your PC. If this is so, would it be PC owners having problems with it and NOT 360 Owners as the title says. Also, shouldn't this story fall under PC and not XBOX360.
Even if they own a 360, they are trying to use it with their PC. Also, some people may even go out and by this periphal and a 360 controller without actually owning a 360. Title gives this story a bias slant, and this is probably why it got approved even as a duplicate story.
M's should change the name of 360 call it 3FIXME
that since they are using the wireless receiver for the PC to play it with a 360 controller they might own a 360 console. thats why it says 360 owners. look guys, im not a sony fanboy or a 360 troll. i like both of the systems.
as for me putting a duplicate stroy im sorry. it is human error, but ill try to do it better next time, ok? so dont get your patines in a bunch.
Hmmmm....I was thinking of getting one of these...
I'm probably still gonna get it though, because they can't all be defective right?
you should still get one.
i have one and i dont have any problems with it.
the chances of yor being deffective are pretty slim
i thought the point of the story was this:microsoft has had a lot of trouble getting stuff it makes(for the gaming industry)to work, and that this is just another product that they've made which is experiencing problems.-isn't that what they are saying?
If you either submitted this story, approved it, or made negative comments about MS in thread, YOU ARE A MORON.
This has NOTHING to do with the 360, and is 100% BOGUS. There is no problem with this device; anyone experiencing problems, either haven't installed the correct driver(s), or fail to understand which games it's compatible with.
I use it with my wireless headset on WOW with vent. I've never had any problems.
Hasn't everyone noticed? This is a sony biased website.
1) After the NEWS tab on the homepage is the PS3 tab. -Don't tell me is alphabetical, because then the WII tab would be before the XBOX 360. And the PC tab would be first. etc etc.
2) Sony posts have over 100 replies every time. Xbox posts generally break over 100 if the sony fans try to post negative comments.
3) Any time a post comes out that the fanboys deem to be negative for sony or postive for xbox, generally spawns a 'retort' or 'rebuttal' type post stating exactly the opposite.
4) I could go on for days...
Anyways. Suck it up people, stop being ignorant little biased pricks with only one sense of purpose. This site is news for GAMERS, not news for FANBOYS. I like to play games. This means that if the game is best on the 360, then that's what I will get it on. If the game is best on the PS3, then that is what I will play it on. If I can only get it on Wii, then I will. Exclusive? heh. Go Figure. If you can't afford all three systems, then buy the one that you feel suits your tastes, but don't hate the others. They all have their good and bad points.
My choice? X360. And I own all three.
Whats up with the title??
Was somebody asleep while they posted this?
works fine for me. There are more steps than simply pressing the guide button on the controller, you need to resync it to the windows receiver. But I never really use it that much. For me its more of a gimmick ultimately
I would actually complain if this thing worked on my 360...it is for pc's only.
This is nothing,wait for 1 more year it gets worst .
This wireless receiver is for the PC. Either way, it's M$ and it's bad so post it under the 360. Lets post the Sony laptop batteries under the PS3. I have so many ignores under my name because I will not kiss Sony's a$$. Hell I piss off 360 owners also. It is bad to go against the grain.
