I bought this particular item because one of my controllers stopped working and i needed a new one. Yes, the brand was important to me. It had to be an Xbox 360 wireless controller. What really convinced me to buy it was the situation we was in. I have 3 brothers and they all wanna play the game, But we only had one controller to share since the other one was not working. plus we couldn't play against each other with only one controller. So, this was something i really needed to buy.
