    I've successfully connected an Xbox wireless controller to my Excite 10 AT 305 using the USB dongle. That works well.

    I have also success in making the bluetooth controller made by Gamestop work as well.

    Has anyone else had any luck with other wireless controllers?

    I was looking into those..how do you like it, what games have you tried so far and if you have any emulators how easy is it to map those buttons

    Button mapping is easy. I used emulators for GB/GBC/GBA SNES and SMS with no problems.
    (The only performance limitation will be how well written the emulator is and how good your ROM image is.)
    I've used this with Shadowgun THD and Dead Trigger no problems.

    The triggers are just switches compared to the Xbox 360 controller, but of course you don't need a dongle for the BT controllers, so I'll take that trade.

    Can you post the link where you purchased your USB Dongle, I rather chose one that someone actually used and confirmed it worked .

    Do you man the USB dongle for the Xbox 360 controller?
    EDIT
    I bought a real one in black, but from a store...Target? KMart? I don't remember I'm sorry.

    I bought a knockoff from Amazon that I originally linked to, but I forgot it didn't work.
    I don't trust the online ones now either.
    END EDIT
