Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows

Xbox adaptorThe PS3 has the PSP, the Wii has the DS, what’s the Xbox 360 have? For the guys looking for a butter-and-peas partner for their console, Microsoft‘s new product may be just the thing. The Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows will allow 360 fans to hook their wireless accessories for the console over to a Windows-based PC. It’s now featured on the Xbox main site, and if you’re wondering what it does, here’s the details:

  • Will work with future Xbox 360 Wireless Accessories.
  • Provides up to a 30-foot range for complete wireless freedom.
  • Use up to four Wireless Controllers and four Wireless Headsets simultaneously with one Wireless Gaming Receiver.
  • Easily integrates with PC gaming scenarios and utilizes the same binding technology as Xbox 360.
  • Provides a great value by eliminating the need for additional accessories for Windows-based gaming at an attractive price point.
  • Plugs into a PC USB port and has a six foot cable.
  • Future drivers available for Windows Vista™ and Force Feedback for the Wireless Racing Wheel.
  • Wireless Gaming Receiver is coming soon!

The bad news is that it doesn’t mention what games will work with the unit, but since it’s not yet out, we’ll probably be hearing from the Microsoft people again regarding this new adaptor. On the lighter side, the thing currently goes for USD $19.99, which is a pretty good price for a unit that makes sure we don’t have to buy a new set of controllers just for desktop consumption.
