Thread: Xbox controller on a PC?

  1. #1

    Default Xbox controller on a PC?

    Is it possible to connect an Xbox controller to a PC?

    I am talking bout Xbox not 360... those big fat black controllers. I find 'em extremely comfortable . Now... someone with a 360 controller might be able to help me as the xbox controllers have the same type of wiring as the 360 except for the port (360's got a usb port, whereas xbox's one is like a usb port... but it's fat and basically cannot be connected to a PC). both the xbox and 360 controllers have this split part (dunno the technical term) half way through the way... a part with some other kind of a port... now that thing is the same on both xbox and 360 controllers. So does anyone know where I might be able to buy the second part of the wire with a usb port in the end?

    Check out the pic below to get an idea of the port in the middle of the wire...



    Another alternative that I found online is cutting the wire... adding this and that and usb thingies... and I don't really wanna go in that direction.

    Please help

    Thank You.

    Well, I already have 3 Xbox controllers... and I just wanna see if I can put them to some use. However, I have told my parents to get me controllers from China if possible but they aren't the tech type, so I just have my fingers crossed.

    If they don't get anything, then I'll just get a 360 controller.

    my student has got the same problem. I will inform if i can find anything about it after my class starts.
    Some qoutes that have helped me passing the 'moments' of my life:

    1. Accept your limitations, then go beyond them.
    2. Dont think old man. Sail on this course and take it when it comes
    3. I am who i am, not what i am.
    4. Life is too short to be pissed of all the time.
    5. Theists and atheists think alike while they face the real BAD of life
    6. You can never really know a man unless you walk in his shoes.
    7. Forgive thee, who bring upon hatred on you.

    Yea, I think converters do exist, but I'm not sure if you'll find it here in Bangladesh!
