    My local Gamestation had some in stock at the weekend when I picked mine up. They said they were sold out on the boxes on the shelf, but they still had a few hanging up behind the counter.

    Went around searching for wireless controllers nad play and charge in Brum, nowhere seemed to have any anyway... I ended up ordering an over the top pirce wireless pad from Argos, as they were the only people that actually had stock.

    Scissors? lol i know the feeling though mate, imagine how people get on who suffer from arthritis.

    Everything's the same, i think they seal them that way to stop people nicking them out the security coded packages in shops.

    It was annoying, I got my wireless pad today, had to use a mahoosive pair of scissors to cut it open :p

    I'm sure there's a good reason for it, probably protects the hardware reasonably well, can stack them in shops / hang them, and also use the packaging as a murder weapon once you've got the hardware out :p

    I'm finding it ironic that at any given time I can find pretty much every 360 accessory in stork around my local area bar the one I want...... A BLOOMIN VGA LEAD :(

    Always thought these were a wate of time as you can buy enough AA batteries for years worth of use for the cost of these kits.

    To be fair your probably right, I wasn't going to bother getting one and instead just stock up on premium batteries when I saw them on BOGOF's. Only advantage is that your not going to run out of juice mid game.

    Unlikely you would do that, thinking how long a MS wireless mouse and keyboard last these days. Be a real bummer though. Doesn't the light change color or flash when the batteries are dying, can't remember.

    Anyway TRU seem to have a fair few accesories in stock in p&C kits last time i looked.

    Great, thanks guys, just ordered one charge kit, and a battery for the other controller.

    Yes you could use rechargable batteries, but its not as easy. And its all about the gadgets for me :)

    I ordered a VGA cable from SimplyGames, still waiting for it to be sent out. :(

    I went through a set of batteries in about 2-3 weeks, so I think I'd use up more than 15 quid's worth in a year.
