Re: xbox360 hardware
Oh you will need the Xbox 360T Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows«
(http://www.xbox.com/en-US/hardware/x...amingreceiver/) to get
the official Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Racing Wheel
(http://www.xbox.com/en-US/hardware/x...el/default.htm)
to work with Vista.

Also the official Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Racing Wheel has force
feedback and rumble.
And its a realy good wheel. I love it.
Shure its a little more money then the 3rd party ones but its worth it.

I dont know if 3rd party 360 wheels works with Vista.

RE: xbox360 hardware
I'm using the Wireless Receiver and the Wireless Headset without any problems
whatsoever on my Vista 64-bit install.

Sadly, the drivers that come with the Wireless Receiver device are for XP,
which is a bit daft, however, you can download a Vista version from
Microsoft's website. I assume the driver package will be the same for both
wired and wireless XBox360 products.

I use the Wireless Headset for Counterstrike: Source and it works like a
charm.

To find the drivers, try searching Microsoft for: Microsoft XBox 360
Accessories (this is the name of the folder installed by the drivers package).

Re: xbox360 hardware
Windows can download the drivers automaticaly.
At least it did that when I used a wired 360 controller in XP.
I'm guessing the "look for drivers online" function is available in Vista
to.
