TF2 on the 360 is great. So I wouldn't see a problem with using the 360 controller to play TF2 on my PC.

you know the controllers are connected through a USB hub already... so all you really have to do is pull the box apart (which can be kinda hard... probably the hardest part actually lol!), rip out the wireless receiver (and by rip i mean gently and methodically remove) and solder it to a standard USB plug and start up a LAN party... of course, now you've destroyed a console worth hundreds of $$$ to save $30 on an adapter lol (so do it with an old Xbox... the controllers are just as good and you might actually save money this way! rofl)

viva pinata?? nos, is there something you're not telling us?!?! lol

As long as he has this:

Any wireless 360 controller will work. I have it, and it works fine with a black 360 Elite controller that I bought off of eBay.

No offense but that is probably the worst idea I ever heard. You are better of buying the 360 Wireless Receiver for $17. I actually own it and it works wonders.
