You need an adapter for the wireless controller.

As long as it's the wired controller and not the wireless with plug and play charger thing.

I bought a wired Xbox 360 controller this week and works instantly with the games I've tried (Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed, Dirt 2, Mirror's Edge, Mass Effect).

I went wired because 1) it's cheaper 2) costs extra for the wireless dongle and it looks like an ugly old mouse

You know wireless is cool but I really don't sit that far away from my computer so I really don't see the point in having to pay for something I'm not even gonna utilize.

Why go wireless anyways unless you already had a controller the cord on the wired one is like 10 ft.

I want wired cause it's cheaper and wire don't bother me. I just want to know though is the wired one for the 360 the same one for the PC ? Is there a wired one that made specially just for the PC ?

The wired controllers are the same. The packaging is different, but the controller itself is the same.

It may be funny but it's not. Some games doesn't recognize the input as the same as the wired xbox 360 controller. Although you can get some tweak file to go around it.
