The Xbox 360, like the PlayStation 3 allows users to charge up their wireless controllers so they can play their video games while the controller charges up. Because the Xbox is made by Microsoft, any PC running a Microsoft operating system such as Windows 7 can use the play and charge kit to connect their Xbox 360 wireless controller to their PCs.

Step 2

Plug the Xbox controller connector end of your play and charge kit into your Xbox 360 wireless controller. Your PC will automatically read the new device and start to look for software. If your remote doesn’t do so, then go to the Microsoft download gaming software page (see Resources) and download the software for your particular controller based on your particular version of the Windows operating system.

Step 3

Insert or run a video game that is compatible with controllers on your PC, and the video game will read the Xbox 360 wireless controller that is plugged into your computer via your play and charge kit. Most Microsoft PC video games will be compatible with this controller.
