Hey guys. I wanted to ask you a specific question about Windows 8 features. I notice when I play a PC game on my laptop like Supper Amazing Wagon Adventure and Tactical Intervention, it allow you to play this game on an Xbox 360 controller. How do I connect my Xbox 360 to Windows 8? Here a video where Mark was playing a pc game with an Xbox 360 controller.

You plug it into the PC that's it Windows will pick it up and it will start working instantly.

Well... What kind of USB port do I connect it to?

Any of them?

The standard 360 wired controller uses a normal USB plug.

Literally, you plug it in, windows installs the drivers automatically, and you're good to go.

Any..
Make sure you have a wired controller though, the wireless one with an additional charging/power cable won't work.

It will work if he has a USB wireless dongle (IIRC retail wireless controllers now come with one of these).
