    Can wireless Ps3 controllers be used on PC via the charging cable?
    As in using it as a joystick?

    Google yielded no results for what I am looking for, just Yahoo Answers on if you can charge other controllers with the same plug.

    Your house, robbing your stuff
    Not via the charging cable,since the cable is just a power cable,the PS3 contr. stays connected to bluetooth no matter what!

    But if you have a Bluetooth stick,then...yea!

    Sixaxis wireless is not possible, though you can with the method listed above, play games. It's a bitch to set up with PC games, but works very well in emulators.

    Reading through that thread. Apparently, it is using a file called btsix, but the ability to connect depends on the bluetooth stack that is used I guess.
