    I guess thats the right place- dolphin's an emulator, so...
    can I use my xbox 360 wireless controller on my pc w/o any of those adapters? I cant buy online, and borrowing from a friend isnt a good option... and I wont take my xbox apart just for that...
    i have one of those if it helps....

    Nope.
    360 wireless controller uses RF instead of bluetooth.

    Edit: even with play and charge, it's impossible.
    Besides, you'll have to write a driver if you want to have it, even for a wired one.

    No, you can't use your 3DS, and playing with a keyboard is not comfortable. I recommend going out and buying a cheap 360 breakaway controller. The Rock Candy brand is sturdy and usually about $25. You can also use the Wii U Pro controller (I use one with no problems) if you want to spend the extra money for something wireless.

    Scratch what I said earlier, I thought you meant on a Wii.

    It is possible to use them on Dolphin, but you do need a RF adapter.
    Then in Dolphin, you must rebind the controls to the controller.

    3DS is technically possible, tho I think you'll miss some buttons.

    He's wanting to use one without the adapter, which isn't possible.

    actually, I have N3DS which has 1 extra button... gamepad and dpad for their counterparts on gc controller, C stick for that yellow thumbstick, abxyLR->abxyLR, ZR/ZL-> Z and one is left doing nothing...
