Will the Xbox 360 plug and play kit work on my pc as a game pad

Just wondering  if you can use that as a game pad on your PC

I've had several friends try and none of them have had any luck. I don't know if maybe they're incompetent or something, but I'd guess it doesn't.

A wired 360 controller, however, works just fine.

No, I work a lot with wired 360 controllers and I can tell you a plug-and-play won't work as one.

You need to buy a special receiver to make the wireless ones work with your PC.
It is, in fact, cheaper to buy a wired controller than that sensor alone.

Sadly no, you need a dongle. It is kinda stupid.
