Silly question, but can these be used for the xbox 360?

If you have a plug n charge kit for your 360, I believe you can hook up your 360 pad to your pc and use it with that too.

Nope, you can't do that and use the controller with the PC. The play and charge cable only sends charge to the battery, nothing else.

seconded; i've tried this, to no avail

Even sillier question, can this be used on PS3 via USB? Don't suppose the drivers can be patched / downloaded, so it would be a case of "will it work out the box" and I'm guessing not

not bad

just use a wired 360 pad i do

nah you need that wireless thing to plug into your pc first or a wired 360 controller i believe, i feel a court case rising over this pc gamepad design though!

Is the D-Pad crap on this as well, like the xbox360 one is?

I bought one of these last week but we warned ...


It does not work with all games such like GTA IV, you have to download a crack.

Lol, nah they've changed it just enough to glide through the legal loop hole there, wow look a Turbo button!!! :-D

The Xbox 360 controllers that came with the consoles are absolutely … The Xbox 360 controllers that came with the consoles are absolutely brilliant and certainly bring an extra feeling to whatever Xbox360 game you were playing while being as simple to use so you could jump right in without having to master all the controls. Some people like the controller so much that they want to use it on every other console they have including their PC! Speed-Link has jumped onto this and released their very own version for PC called the 360 Style Gamepad For PC USB which looks like an Xbox 360 controller feels like an Xbox 360 controller and possibly even smells like an Xbox 360 controller. All the buttons on the gamepad are laid out like on the original which is handy for those who want to keep to what their used but the middle main Xbox button is replace with a Speed-Link button which looks rather stylish and now that its on PC you don't really need that button anyway. Being connected via USB means the 360 Style Gamepad For PC USB is ready to use almost as soon as you plug the controller in so your not wasting time and your ready to rock and roll!



Why not just pay a little extra and get the real thing?

Be warned, I brought this gamepad just before christmas from Play. I don't have an XBox 360 myself, but like to play the odd PC game every now and again. This is a great looking bit of kit when it comes out of the box, however like one or two others have said, you need to find out whether it works for your particular game, otherwise you may need to purchase something like XPadder or Pinnacle Profiler for the game you want to play. I've found a lot of the Windows Games only work with the official XBox 360 controller, very frustrating.

This has got a turbo button

:whistling:

You can use Xpadder for Free ( just not the newest version ) [COLOR="Red"]http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Miscellaneous/Xpadder.shtml[/COLOR]

I use Xbox wireless control with the PC & use it in games like GTA4 without any problems. [COLOR="Red"]http://www.amazon.co.uk/Xbox-Wireless-Gaming-Receiver-Windows/dp/B000MGVAAQ[/COLOR]

The controller here Should also do the same thing as it's Windows compatible & is connected by the USB & can't see why it wouldn't.

The official xbox 360 controller + PC adaptor only works with "Games for Windows" games (I think GTA 4 is one of them?).

E.g. the game must have this logo thingy at the top:

Or does Xpadder get around that problem?

I'd like to know this too, been after a ps3 pad thats similar to the xbox and apparently PC usb pads do work, but it would be good to get confirmation of that before i purchase

I got my wireless reciever from CEX for £8 cex.co.uk/pro…buy

You can use the wired 360 pad on the pc and it works just like a normal pad, its just the guide button that doesn't work

you can'r connect the play and charge kit from, a wireless to the pc, as that won't work, you can however get a wireless 360 kit for pc

Blaze, you better hope so, because its 3 figures for one of these

I use a similar program called XFire Switchblade to make my 360 pad compatible with a wider variety of titles:

You need a crack for the game. I had to google arround to find a crack that worked with this game pad for the game GTA IV.

It seems if there is 'Games for Windows' at the top of the packaging (gta iv, gears of war etc..) then you need an official microsoft 360 controller for the pc to play the game with, unless of course you can apply a crack like I did.

Banned

it use in pc

The requirements for Microsoft's GfW branding is that you support the Xbox 360 controller if you're supporting other gamepads: msdn.microsoft.com/en-…spx

I couldn't see anything in there about mandatory or exclusive Xbox 360 controller support in GfW games so I guess it's a couple of the developers of games you'd want to play with a controller just supporting the Xbox 360 pad for some reason that's led to that impression.

A crack shouldn't be needed, you should just be able to set up the gamepad to emulate the Xbox 360 one or a mouse and keyboard.

Believe me I tried everything to get this game to work with GTA IV and could only get it to work by patching the software to make GTA IV thing my game pad was an official microsoft one.

i need a second controller for xbox 360 will this work??

How do you connect the pad with the pc?thanks



connect a wired or wireless pad to the pc? for wired just plug it in and it should pick it up, you *may* need drivers, for wireless, look a post above my original, you'll need that adapter

Wrong.
The Play N Charge cable also carries the USB data, and allows you to connect and use a Wireless 360 pad to a USB port on your PC.

There are allegedly some "early" Wireless pads around that won't talk to a PC, but I've never seen one in the wild - unless you have a very old 360, I wouldn't worry,

Hi, so how does it work then? I've connected my wireless 360 controller to the PC using the play and charge USB cable, and after the drivers for the play/charge kit were automatically installed by Vista, I can't actually get windows to recognise the controller when turned on. It keeps flashing as it tries to look for a wireless receiver, but since I don't have one it's not picking anything up.

Any help would be appreciated.

I just connect the Play'N'Charge cable to the pad, connect the USB end to my PC, and ... that's it. It just works ! Vista automatically installed the drivers, and the buttons and axis are all available in the Control Panel widget.
