    no you cant... when using the play and charge kit the controller still communicates with the 360 wirelessly... no data is sent over the cable... it is strictly just for charging the controller. however, i believe you can use the wired 360 controllers on a pc, not sure about a mac.

    do your wired work on a mac also?

    i think its kind of shady that microsoft did not build the ability for the wireless to trasnmit data over the play and charge kit.... not only would it be a value add (so you didnt have to spend the extra $$ for the wired) but it also takes longer to charge if you are using the controller while it is charging.... ;)

    Yes, the wired do work. I think there is actually a thread or two on this very subject floating around.

    Anyway, you need this.
