Buying an Xbox 360 stock controller can be quite difficult online since there are so many places that claim that their controller was made by Microsoft, when in reality a third party made the controller. That’s why we’ve put this page together so that you can take a look at all of the Xbox 360 stock controllers that you can choose from.
Many people assume that an Xbox stock controller has to be black, but this isn’t necessarily the case. There are plenty of different colours and so on that Xbox 360 stock controllers come in. There are even special edition controllers for games like Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 and Gears of War. Although these stock controllers are usually a little bit more expensive, they can be worth it, especially if you’re a fan of Gears of War for example.
Another good reason why it’s worth thinking about getting a stock controller is because with a stock controller you’ll be able to also use it to play games on your PC. This means that if you’re a PC gamer and an Xbox gamer there’s no need to buy more than one controller, since you’ll be able to use the same controller on both devices.
It’s worth noting that not all stock controllers are wireless, so when you’re looking for a new controller make sure that you know whether it is wireless or not. In general, wired Xbox 360 stock controllers are in or around £10 cheaper than wireless ones so it’s up to you to decide whether it’s worth the extra money or not to be able to play without using wires.
Take a look through all of the stock Xbox 360 controllers that are on our site if you want to get an idea of what’s on offer. As you’d expect, official Microsoft controllers are a bit more expensive than controllers that are made by other companies, but in the long term it’s worth the extra money since it’ll more than likely last longer etc.
