I am not sure but I think that first one is for regular Xbox.

The gold one is for 360.

The 1st one was for an original XBox, the 2nd a 360. The original XBox one came with a headset.

Overall what are some of the things besides the Xbox 360 and Madden 09, like accessory wise that i need.

Plug and Play Battery Pack (or just spring for the charging station) and that's really it. The wireless headset is probably my best buy on accessory wise though. And if you want to play further from a router then you'll probably just want to pick up the wireless adapter (although there are cheaper alternatives).

If you want to map yourself on a player, you can get the vision camera. If you didn't get a premium or Elite 360 then you'll probably want to buy a headset to play online.

Oh, and the play and charge kit for the wireless pad really saves on batteries.

Just make sure you get the premium one or whatever that comes with the hard drive. That is all you really need.

Yeah you can, wtf are you talking about DS. You don't need that shit at all. Just a controller and hard drive and you're good. It comes with everything you need. Maybe get a wireless network adapter if you NEED it, like if your router is in another room or something and you can't just plug it in. But that's it really.

noh i think he means plug and play battery pack is for the controller

Yeah you don't need that either. It makes the controller heavy and it's dumb. Just use regular batteries, they are not that expensive.

Didn't mean that you NEED any of that. But the plug and play will save you money, the charging station doesn't require you to plug up your control if you play often, the wireless headset is leaps over the wired one if you play online regularly, and the wireless adapter is helpful if your router is not near your console.

I figured the term "accessories" made it pretty clear that they are optional.

I agree with AAA. The battery life on the controller is long. And really, don't waste $ on a wireless headset. I hardly even use my headset as it is, and when I do the wire isn't THAT bad. You don't even notice it when you're into your game.

My controller battery died in like a week and I got the charger thing although I don't really need it anymore cause I have actual rechargeable batteries, but that thing was mad helpful

Point stands that they are nice to have laying around, Gertner.
