    To my understanding the xbox 360 controller works with the PC and Microsoft even has a "release" of a "PC version," but both the PC version and 360 controllers will work.

    A buddy of mine said that the controller's triggers don't really work well on the PC. Anyone have any experience with the 360 controller and PC use?

    The performance of anything plugged into a PC ultimately comes down to how well its driver is written. If it's using a crappy, first-release, homebrewed driver, then it won't work well. If there's a SourceForge project to build a driver for that controller, then it probably does work well.
