I know, but that one's a "common controller" apparently. What does that entail?

Common comes with a disc. I assume it has Windows XP drivers.

Because Windows XP won't download and install drivers for you.

One has packaging marketed for PC users, the other has packaging for 360 users. Only difference, outside of the PC one probably coming with a driver disc. Physically, they are the same controller.
