    I'm pretty sure you still need an extra peripheral when using a Wireless Controller, Plug and Charge just won't do. Wired controllers, on the other hand, work just fine also.

    EDIT:
    Unfortunately this won't work. The Play and Charge kit only connects up to the actual battery. The controller still connects over wireless.

    You'd need either a wired Xbox 360 controller, or a Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver which will connect to your existing wireless controller.[/p]

    SO i bought the plug n play charge kit just to use for my emulators!!! And i can't do it? All it does is charge? I can't use any emulators with it?

    It's a charge kit and that's all. If you want to play on your PC then buy a Wired Xbox 360 controller (they can be third party since I use a GameStop branded 360 controller) or you'd have to buy this Receiver he speaks of.

    ^that

    on top of that ms doesnt make the connectors/adapters anymore so they are a bit hard to find
    there are knockoffs out there also that should work

    That sucks. But lets look at this on the positive side. I don't have to waste 20 bucks every 3 months for new batteries.
