First of all, the question which everybody asks is that can we connect our wireless Xbox 360 or Xbox One controller/ joystick to a PC or a laptop to play games.
Answer: The answer is YES and NO.
For Yes, you can connect and play games on your PC with Xbox 360 / One controller but with some amendments and setup. For No, you can’t connect your wireless controller directly to your PC.
So, let us start with the solution and steps to connect and pair your Xbox 360 or Xbox One controller with your PC.
You can’t use a wireless controller of Xbox 360 / Xbox One directly with your PC nor can use it with the USB cable that comes with the controller. Because as of wireless the controller never syncs with your PC, it only syncs with the Xbox.
And secondly for the USB cable that comes with the Xbox controller is only for charging it never sends data to your PC nor receives it.
So, for that purpose, you need to purchase an Xbox wireless dongle. Using that dongle you can connect your wireless Xbox 360 / Xbox one controller to your PC. The wireless Xbox controller first syncs with the dongle and then the dongle connects it with the PC.
There is another solution as well, that you purchase a wired Xbox 360 / Xbox one controller if you want to play games on a PC with an Xbox controller without using the dongle. The wired controller is designed in a way and has the capability to work with a PC.
Though the wired Xbox controllers are usually made by china and third party companies and not officially by Microsoft. But they work well with the consoles and gets the job done.
