I know there's a way...we're looking for a way to connect the wireless 360 controllers to the PC somehow.  We have the PC set up on the HDTV and we want to play some ROMs two-player...but as is generally the case, PC gamepads suck BADLY.  And we have two wireless 360 controllers, which I've heard can be used on the PC.

But how...?

afaik you can only connect wired controllers to the PC... for playing older games I bought a cheap Logitech gamepad that's basically a PS2 controller. Works great!

We have that...it doesn't work very good.  But I figured we couldn't do it with the wireless controllers...  Damn.

Microsoft is planning to release a accecorie that will allow you to use all of the 360 components on your PC: http://www.xbox.com/en-US/hardware/x/xbox360wirelessgamingreceiver/ As of right now only WIRED controllers that specifically say they are compatible with PC work.
