Wireless controller with charge and play kit?
« on: 01:54 PM - 02/24/11 »
I know you need a wired controller to the XIM3 to use it but rather than regular wired controller can you use a wireless controller with the charge and play kit?

This is without the rechargable batteries in the controller.

I'm pretty sure it won't work, the controller signal is only transmitted over wireless and the play and charge cable is only used for charging.  I know at least that plugging one into a PC with the play and charge cable will not work.

Really? This has already been asked numerous times. You don't even need a brain to answer the question- common sense will suffice. Use the search feature you sack of bricks.

Or just sick of the same question re-surfacing on a daily basis?

"What else will I need besides an Xbox 360 for xim3 to work?

You will need any microsoft certified controller for the Xbox360 console. Microsoft, MadCatz, Gamestop brand controllers should work. Please note that a wireless controller with a play and charge kit will not work, the play and charge kit only charges the controller."

About the third question in the cunningly titled:

"XIM3 (FAQ) READ BEFORE POSTING"

Wow the so called "older members" here are turning senile.

Senile? Far from it. It's baffling to see the new members, such as yourself, have the brain equivalent of a llama. Would you like a lesson of how to wipe your as$ as well? Your comments definitely suggest so.
