I currently own a "Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller for Windows". This is obviously the exact same gamepad in its shape as the ones which come with the Xbox console.

My question is: can I use it on an Xbox console as well, or can it be connected only to PC?

Yes. It works. Just plug it in and it will be recognized instantly. If you want to attach more of them you can also use an USB hub.

PC Xbox controllers and normal Xbox controllers are exactly the same, so you will have no problem using them interchangeably.
