Guy tracks down his stolen 360 with still connected controller

Submitted by: Beren @ 03:42 PM | Sunday, December 14, 2008 | (url: http://www.kotaku...)

Now I had noticed my controller still worked if I was in the bath etc.. but this is certainly kicking it up a notch to be able to track down the 360 once its stolen by seeing when it is within range. Shame they had already formatted the guys HDD though.

Don't have an xbox. Do the controllers uniquely sync up to a particular console then? Otherwise I'm just going to walk up and down a floor with a controller claiming xboxes and getting kids kicked out of school.

No, the guy just walked around until he found an Xbox to connect his controller to and then said it was the one that was stolen.....

no they do not...they will work on any xbox which is why this guy had no valid claim. I take my controller to my friends house and play on his 360 all the time.

No...


You have to sync it first.


And the only way you can sync it is to have physical access to the xbox AND the controller.
