You can only used the xbox 360 wired controller and you have to download the driver from microsoft.com. wireless wont work as its only connected to a 360 and not pc. hope this helps!

Both the same and both will just plug into Vista and work straight off. I have one myself. The only difference is that the for Windows one comes with a CD with the drivers on in case you don't have the most up-to-date version of Windows. If you have Vista you'll be fine though, especially if you have automatic updates on.

Which one do you have the one designed for winows or the Official XBox 360 Wired Controller and what Windows do you have XP or Vista?

Thanks for the answers. :smashin:

I bought the for Windows one with the CD, but I've never used the CD, it just worked as soon as I plugged it in. I had XP SP2 at the time I bought it, now I'm on Vista and it still works fine.

I bought the normal 360 one :) Worked fine after I installed XBCD driver. I did try official Microsoft driver but rumble was weird in Flatout 2. I use XP SP2

Just buy the one from play.com (via quidco!) as it seems to be cheapest
