Xbox 360 controller for windows.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I have a wireless 360 controller. Would I be able to use it for Windows if I were to use the cord, or a wireless receiver required to get it working?

Thank you.

Definitely if you were to get the receiver, by using the cord do you mean the "play and charge kit"? Because I don't think that works.

I'm pretty sure the play and charge kit doesn't work on PC. You need one of these. Both Microsoft and third parties make them, probably not much difference in quality though so just get whatever is cheaper.

You definitely need that receiver, I tried the wireless controllers are just wireless, if you use the plug and play it only powers it. I Use the 360 controller for many games that aren't FPS'

The play and charge kit alone does not work to use the controller, it only charges. You need the wireless receiver.

You can also use your wireless Xbox 360 controller to play PC games but in order to do this you will need to purchase the wireless gaming receiver.The Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver provides up to a 30-foot range for complete wireless freedom. Use up to four Wireless Controllers and four Wireless Headsets simultaneously with one Wireless Gaming Receiver. The Receiver easily integrates with PC gaming scenarios and utilizes the same binding technology as Xbox 360. It's available at zeromartz.com
