  • According to the page linked, included in the offer is “Wireless Xbox 360 Controller for Windows”. Those work with Xbox 360 as well as Windows according to here:

    Personally I use a MS Natural Ergonomic 4000 at work and at home. They make really good keyboards and mice so this is an interesting deal. Might be able to get rid of the horrible trackball-based mouse I use at work.

  • @NegativeZero: Well, that’s good to hear. The press release was clear in the terms and conditions about Xbox hardware being excluded. I guess that doesn’t include the “Windows” 360 controller, as you’ve pointed out.
