    Hopefully the surface will have xbox 360 gamepad support right out of the box with at least some Arcade live games available. I know they say mobile gaming is big right now but the one thing I can't stand is unresponsive virtual D-pads and buttons.
    What do you guys think?

    I agree; the on-screen controls of many ipad games leave a lot to be desired. I would think that with the keyboard, and a bluetooth mouse, I'd be perfectly content.

    Aw: Xbox 360 Gamepad support?

    Works with my 360-wireless. Just plug in the receiver and search for a game with gamepad input support. Reckless racing is one of those apps.

    It's a standard xbox-wireless-controller connected to the usb-receiver. This acts like a xbox, and you can connect up to 4 controller. The controller itself was included in the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows package. I assume, that a normal usb-360 will work, but if you just have wireless from your xbox you'll have to get the receiver.

    is there any way to use a controller without an additional receiver since the surface has Bluetooth.

    Sry, but for the 360-wireless there's no other solution.
