Can we use cheap PC controllers with the XBox 360 by connecting it to the USB slot? PC controllers are much cheaper than Microsoft's.

Not a direct answer, but someone may land here looking for the inverse. It is possible to use an Xbox 360 controller from a PC, but you have to buy a USB receiver. I have my regular controllers working this way, as well as the Xbox 360 steering wheel. – Drew Noakes Mar 12 '11 at 11:03

The controller has to be compatible. You can't use just any USB controller. An example of a controller that works on both the XBox 360 and the PC is the MadCatz Xbox 360 FPS Pro.

The controller must be XInput and must meet the XBox requirements to work.
