Would I be able to use this instead of the official Microsoft product to use...

my wireless 360 controller on my PC? I'd rather be able to use it for more than 1 thing If I could. If not, I'm better off getting a wired controller.

360 controllers don't use Bluetooth.

JascoD~ He said black ops 2, not Battlefield 3. CoD can be played at the same time you're making a sandwich.

nope, what he said, doesn't use blutooth. there aren't any other wireless dongle options other than the official one.

Would a play and charge kit cable work on a PC? Maybe TC already has one of those.

No. The play and charge cable only charges the controller, it does not send the controller inputs through the cord.

Well, yes, it will work, to charge your controller, but no, it will not work to use your controller on your computer.

The signal is still sent wirelessly when using the Play and Charge cable.

It's not that bad, I've got a wired 360 controller hooked up to my PC.

The only thing I found is that some games don't detect every function of the pad, so I downloaded a homebrew program called XPAdder and it's great.

I will second this guy's use of X-Padder.
For any game that doesn't natively use the Xbox 360 controller, this is a great program to use. Takes a bit of getting used to, but once you set it up it's great. Even helped get decent camera controls for Beyond Good & Evil.

I'll be sure to use X-Padder. Thanks for the input.
