I forgot that my XBox 360 USB controllers work with Vista; now that I plugged one in, I can fly through the Virtual Earth, just like Sidebar_Geek does in this video! As soon as I inserted my controller into my Vista machine, the driver installed without a problem. Windows Update then told me there was an even newer driver and promptly downloaded it as well.

Xbox_360_controller_installed_1While I fiddle with this controller a little bit, have a look-see at the two minute video above. I love a mouse as much as the next cat, but there’s something to be said for quickly navigating around the Earth using a game controller.

  1. Hey Kevin,

    Not sure if ya remember me. I am the Xbox MVP you emailed a couple times, ’bout a year ago regarding the wireless adaptor for the 360.

    Anyways, with the release of the wireless receiver for the PC, you can now use a wireless 360 controller. As well, you can also hook up your wireless headset and use it as a PC headset.

    C’mon Matt: how could I forget you? You were my go-to guy for all of those WMCE / Xbox 360 posts over at HDBeat! :) Thanks for the reminder: that wireless receiver for the PC came out a week or two back but I haven’t had a chance to use one yet; I’m also hardwired for my 360 headset for Live, but I should probably cut that cord too! Thanks!

  3. Hey Kevin,

    Can you email me? I got a question or two, that I’d like to discuss. Thanks.

  4. Speaking of Xbox peripherals on the PC, my 360 cam worked flawlessly on my desktop PC but I was never able to get it working on my laptop. I read online of many driver-related problems, and on those machines it wouldn’t work on there seemed to be no resolution.

    So I traded the cam to a buddy for his copy of Modern Combat.
