They're just like regular game pads to Windows, you have to buy the USB adapter that allows them to work with the PC, but other than that, it's just like using your favorite Logitech game pad (or Saitek, or whoever)

It will probably depend on whether the controllers are supported by that game.

Well, if the game doesn't play with it, there's your check. I don't know what you're expecting from us here. I have a friend who also plays games on his PC with his 360 controller, and every game he plays that supports gamepads or joysticks, works just fine with it.

It works with any game. If it doesn't have native support for the controller, all you have to do is run a program called xpadder and map the standard keyboard/mouse controls to it.

I have one, it's great for a HTPC, but terrible otherwise. A keyboard/mouse is so much more intuitive. If you get one, don't expect to be able to play online. You'll get creamed.
