300 000 000 metres per second in fact (well in a vacuum anyway but air won't slow it down too much).

Looking up wireless usb I see that it would operate using ultra wide band. this would have a 30 feet range which is the exact range msft says their controllers have. However 2.4 Rf could have that range too depending on the transmit power. The other issues I have with thinking this would be wireless usb are:
1. Msft didn't develop this.
2. Using UWB the FCC mandates it operates between 3.1 and 10.6 GHz, which would not be the 2.4 Msft has said their controllers use.
3. It isn't even fully developed and spec'd yet.
So although it wouldn't be outside the realm of possibility for msft to use an unproven technology in a console they will depend heavily on, I just don't see it. My bet, they are using the same technology in the current logitech wireless controllers for the xbox. There are no issues with that and they don't have to reinvent the wheel.
