Can anyone direct me to xbox 360 wireless controller support in arduino 1.0 compatible usb shield libraries?

Why would a wireless controller use the USB shield?

Sorry, James. I posted elsewhere because this thread wasn't turning up any replies of any use.

It wouldn't, but the wireless transceiver it communicates with, being a usb device, would.

If it doesn't appear to a computer as a USB HID (joystick) device, and nobody else has already done it, you are going to have to write the USB stack for the transceiver.

I think all the Xbox stuff i proprietary.

Most people who hack the XBox remotes will hack the hardware side of the controller and let the build in radio communicate with the console.

I don't think the radio specs have been released publicly to stop aftermarket vendors from flooding the market with cheap controls and making Microsoft have to come down on those ridiculous prices.
