Microsoft has launched the Xbox 360 game controller in North America for $39. This controller will work with the upcoming Xbox 360 but it's also compatible with Windows XP based computers.
"Gamers can simply unplug their controller from their Xbox 360 system and plug it into their Windows XP-based PC," Chris Donahue, director of Windows gaming at Microsoft, said in a statement. "This is a great breakthrough for the gaming industry as we make it easier for developers to create multiplatform titles."

The controller features a new design meant to improve ergonomics. It also offers "force feedback vibration support" and a button layout.
It will be available soon in Europe and Asia too. More info over at CNET.
