I can't decide which controler i should get. I'm getting a premium packedge so i get 1 wireless controler to start out with but what should be my second controler? I could have another wireless which i really like but on the other hand, the wired controler is copatable with the pc and is cheaper. I can't decide any suggestions?

Get wired, I personally like them since you don't have to worry about battery problems, etc. I also enjoy using my 360 controller on the computer. My personal opinion since you already have two wireless ones.

im playing it safe; ill have a total of 3 wireless, and one wired. Just in case when we start modding the wireless controllers dont work for some reason. i personally say you should get 2 wireless 2 wired. but thats just my 2 cents.

yea wireless. i would go all wireless. my keyboard is and my mouse are wireless. i hardly ever have to change the batteries. if you want to plug your controller in then also get a play and charge kit.

Get a wired controller

wired: 39.99
wireless: 49.99+19.99 (plug and play)

I don't really see the purpose in getting wireless unless thats all you care about. At some point in time you are going to have to plug it in anyway.

Wireless for sure, just play one day with it, then play another while having the Play and Charge kit plugged in.

If you have an adapter that lets a USB device plug into a wall outlet to charge then you could do the same thing with the Plug N' Play. You also only really need ne plug N' Play kit even if you have more than one controller...

Couldn't agree more. That kit is rather important if you prefer wireless controllers.

That's exactly what I'm doing now. I've charged two batteries so far this way, no problem.

I just never think about these things. I'm just so used to plugging in a controller and playing without having to worry about charging it or replacing the batteries but to each his own. Either way make sure you have at least one wired
