People are constantly asking me if we ever plan on making a gaming product for PC gamers. Truth is we already do. Some people don’t know this, but you can use your current Xbox 360 controller for many PC games. Of course, you might not want to use a controller for everything on the PC, but you’ll definitely want it for games like Super Meat Boy, FIFA, Batman: Arkham City, Assassin’s Creed and any game featuring cars or racing like GTA or Need for Speed.
Setup for using your Xbox 360 controller on a Windows based PC is easy:
Wired Xbox 360 Controller: The same controller can be used for both Xbox 360 and PC. Just plug it in to an open USB port on your PC—Windows takes care of the rest.
Wireless Xbox 360 Controller: You don’t need to purchase a separate wireless controller for use on your PC. All you need to do is purchase the Microsoft Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows. Other third-party versions are also available—but you may as well stick with OEM gear in this case. Once you have the receiver, you just plug it in to an open USB port and sync your wireless controller by pushing the button on the receiver and then the sync button on your controller.
