    You get all the same benefits of having the 1st party one as you would wireless. Plus the option to go wireless.

    Honestly it wouldn't be all that hard to do just grab a play and charge kit.

    I use mine in different configs depending where I am.

    -at home relaxed in my chair, wired
    -on the couch or plugged into the tv, wireless
    - in a "noisy" wireless environment, wired

    The list goes on.

    Adapter by itself.

    Controller + Adapter bundle.

    Cheaper to buy the bundle.

    Sold by Amazing Deals Online

    At first I wrongly saw it as Amazon Deals Online, but I believe they are intentional.......

    I think this seller is not a kind of honest people

    The order is fulfilled by Amazon and you are overthinking this.

    It's an Xbox controller not a new kidney.

    I have this controller and I would not recommend it. The quality of the buttons and thumb sticks doesn't compare to Microsoft official. Just get MS so you have no regrets. Only buy Amazon craptroller if you rarely but sometimes have a friend over to play split screen.

    I bought two of these to have two controllers while having a decent d-pad for fighting games when I bought Dragonball Fighter Z lol. It actually was fine till I got Ace Combat 7 and the analog stick was so bad it kept going onto one direction.

    Long story short I just bought an Xbone controller (recent version/no need for adapter) with the Bluetooth built in so I just connect to my laptop or my desktop wirelessly with no problem. Was worth it. The only reason why I hesitated beforehand was because I bought an Xbone controller when the console first came out and it gave me analog stick problems a few months after the warranty ended.

    TL;DR buy official controller.
