Using your 360 controller with Windows

Making the Xbox 360 controller work flawlessly with Windows seems to be no mean feat, but this guide covers the tricky process of getting two Microsoft products to co-operate. Using a third-party shareware program called Pinnacle Game Profiler, it seems you can configure your controller to do just about anything, assigning keyboard and mouse commands to the controller's buttons and axes.

If you're looking for a little cross-platform unification, maybe this will do the trick until Microsoft release some sort of official support for the controller.
