    Thanks for the reply. There are a lot of wireless ones for sale on eBay that are dirt cheap. Is this where you guys got yours from, and if so is there one you can recommend?

    Thanks again.

    XBOX 360 Special Edition

    I was recently given a brand new XBOX 360 Kinect Special Edition. As this is a new XBOX, and that the information on modding them is relatively old, will I be able to mod this version of XBOX 360 in...

    I won't post it here because of the forum rules and I think it's more respectful not to. I'll just keep the window open and if it doesn't go through I'll resend it or something.
