Yes it would work, whether it be wireless or not.

I own a PAL 360 and I use a variety of controllers.;)

But you guys are even more awesome because you get a chance to own the Limited Edition Green Controller with the revamped D-pad.;) I'm not into the green color, but I'm sure the D-Pad will work wonders.

I've seen the red one being sold everywhere here (didn't know it was special though..), but I never heard about the green one.

What's special about the D pad on it?

The D Pad on the normal 360 controller only registers 4 directions, the "new and improved" controller that's gonna be released pretty much for Pro Evo 2009 can register in 32 directions. That's the only difference between the two other than color and the fact that only Europe, Latin America, and Asia get it.

I highly doubt MS would implement a Region Coding for their controllers. It just wouldn't make sense to do so. Like they don't already have enough money.:p

Don't give them any more ideas.

I was told the red controller was a Special Edition Gears controller I guess the guy didn't what he was talking about.

I'm a consumer too, so no more ideas.:p

Yeah, the controller was suppose to be a part of the Limited Edition GoW Red colored console. Since there are only a handful of those from Epic, I guess MS decided to cash in on the controllers. That benefits those of you that want a red controller, right?;)

Bugger this thread; I wanted to get some controllers while I was in the states but didn't because I was convinced they wouldn't work!
