I was pricing the Official Microsoft Xbox 360 wireless controller gaming receivers for PC on Amazon and Ebay. The officlal ones are hard to find now and they run about $55-$60 with shipping, and that's used. I was about to buy one one on Amazon then I just decided to check Ebay one more time and found this

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Official-Microsoft-Xbox-360-wireless-controller-gaming-receiver-for-Windows-PC-/264721954712?epid=27032160690&hash=item3da2a87798:g:x48AAOSwaeBescId&autorefresh=true&nma=true&si=OlUxTsJuffDBw01UitYJWE%2B7kpY%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

It says official for $10 + $4 shipping! it's used I don't care, and the seller doesn't have a lot of feedback but 100% at least so far. This will be so epic for me I've got a bunch of 360 controllers laying around and a wireless 360 arcade stick. It will be cool for PC to play fighting games etc.. I also have a Mayflash NS Magic adapter on Switch that works with the official adapter so that would also mean arcade stick + 360 controllers on Switch. I've been looking everywhere in my house for one I used to have but cannot find it. I may have accidentally thrown it away and haven't seen it in years but this would make up for it.

I still think it's too good to be true and it might not work out, but I did a buy it now immediately and will have to see. Does anyone know is that the official one pictured? I mean the generic ones are like double that price around $25-$27 but I don't think they would work on the Switch (or didn't want to take a risk) but yet I got this cheaper somehow if it works out.

That looks legit. Good find. I also have the ns magic adapter. I use a usb>360 adapter to 360>ps2 adapter to my ps2>xarcade adapter with the ns magic. Fantastic adapter.

Thanks yeah just have to hope seller comes through and sends it. I can't remember what game it was but I won a bidding auction once and got it for like $16 and it was going for $40 so seller realized it and cancelled my winning bid and relisted it for double what I won it for. I gave that seller well deserved negative feedback. But hopefully that wont happen this time.

That's just not fair.

Lol I remember years ago I bought Marvel vs Capcom 2 for Dreamcast on Ebay (back when Dreamcast was a new console) and I was sent a burned disc of it!

Weird. Those are very common around here and go betweet $10-$15 each. But good luck with your find

That's interesting I don't even think you can get them in stores in U.S. anymore. The only options I know of are Amazon or Ebay.

As you can see not that cheap here https://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Au...ial+xbox+360+pc+adapter&qid=1588709003&sr=8-2

Ouch... Yeah that hurts me just thinking about it... Did you end up playing the game in the end at least?

What's funny is I was into burning Dreamcast games and I already had a burned disc of it I just wanted the original lol dropped like $50 and got a burned disc. Back then Ebay's return policy sucked and I think if I remember right it's been almost 20 years ago I think the seller terminated his account before I could do anything and I just got screwed.

Sounds like an infamous eBay scammer. I would assume they had hundreds of accounts. Doing the same thing they did to you.

Glad to hear you still played the game. It was a decent game, after all.

Got it, working perfectly on both my PC and Switch with my Xbox 360 Arcade Stick and Xbox 360 controllers. Nice when you get a great deal and it works out.
