I plug in my 360 controller, start the game, buttons do nothing. I thought this game had native support with the 360 controller.

Tried that. It seems like it just might not work. I'm using the usb cord form the charge and play kit to connect my wireless controller to my PC.

you need a wireless adapter, the play and charge kit only powers the control, it doesn't carry any signals

at that price though, you're better off just buying a wired controller

I was going to buy a wired controller when I bought the play and charge kit, but the guy at the store told me the play and charge would let me use my controller on the PC. Argh ><

What everybody else in this thread neglected to tell you is you need to switch from keyboard to 360 controller in the options for it to work in races.

if you have a wireless controller without the dongle, it still isn't going to do anything as the computer doesn't even know there is a controller
