    The cable you use to plug the PS3 controller into the PS3 is only for charging it (I believe). I'm pretty sure it doesn't transmit controls. Check out this article though to be sure... How to Use a PS3 Controller on a PC | GameFront


    Edit: By the way you can use a wired xbox 360 controller, and if you have a wireless xbox 360 controller you will need an adapter. You can find it at this link.... Amazon.com: Xbox 360 PC Wireless Gaming Receiver: Toys & Games

    Yeah, you can either use Bluetooth, if your computer has it, or use it wired, but it's a bitch to setup, well, depending on what you want to do, but try here.

    I use a Wire Xbox Controller with my games but Key Board reaction time is faster as the PC isn't translating a comand as a Key Board is pre-programmed within Window. How ever I also have the wireless adaptor but I can't get it to work atm so if your going to use a Controler instead get a Wired Xbox Controller or look for a desecent PC Controler as it would work better.
