xbox 360 controller Q
I have the chance to get a free xbox 360 wireless controller that I would use with my computer for some racing games. I am running xp-pro 64-bit, but I already checked the Microsoft website and they have drivers for it, which is good. What I'm not sure about is if the controller will work with my PC right out of the box, or will I have to purchase an adapter? I've seen the adapters online for cheap, but I want to be 100% sure before I order one. I guess I'm thinking perhaps the box will include an adapter, but that would be too easy, after all it is Microsoft.
Thanks in advance.
