dunno abt wireless controlers but the wired 1s work straight away.
you will likely need drivers and windows will probably find them for you. problem is you dont want to be pllaying any of them games with a controler unless your flying or driving. you will get punished by even the most noobish player using a mouse and keyboard.
the turn rate is just to slow. with a mouse you can spin 180 in 2 fps while on a pad your looking at half a second per 90'
