XBox360 Controller on PC?

Post by Orion on Mon Jul 28, 2008 9:22 am

I've heard a lot that you can connect a XBox360 controller on PC, both with cable or wireless, but, uhh... how?

Are the cables conenction USB? I heard that te wireless one you do need to buy a receiver for around 300bucks (wich i obviously won't evan think about it).

Well... all i really want to know is wich conenction does the controllers have, if it's USB so i cna plug them in , or if i need somethign else in order to conenct them Razz

I know some of you guys are rich arses ang got one Xbox360, so if you could tell me Razz

I'm not a big fan of consoles (evan tough i have plenty), but for some games, the only way is to go with a controller (DMC4-PC, RE4-PC and such Razz), so i'm tinking of going to buy one later today, so if anyone could inform me better, i would apreciate Razz

Yes this is possible.
If you are using a Wireless 360 controller then you'll need the adaptor, which costs, well around 15 GBP, I have no idea what that is in your currency but I doubt its gonna be 300bucks.

Or you can opt for a wired one, which will be cheaper, you just plug it into your PC and it should download the drivers for you to use it.

So the wired one uses a USB plug? That's all i wanted to know Razz thx ^^

And i dunno, i was just surving about on another forum and saw 1 guy asking the same thing, another told him that the price was 300USD (for the pc wireless adapter, wich microsoft uses it's own techonolgy so we can't simply use some random wi-fi adapter), but he could buy on a site like ebay for around 35bucks (used ofc), i didn't care much back then to see if it the price was true Razz

It would be pretty stupid to be that price, now wouldn't it? >.< bah, thx anyway ^^
