Just bought a computer with Windows 10. Being a long time XBox user, I dont care for the keyboard setup when playing Minecraft for Windows 10.

My question is, can I hook a controller to my PC and play Minecraft?

LOL!!! Well considering the fact I did not even know you could do it in the first place I will probably need instructions.

Like special cables and such? Wired controller? Can I use standard cables which I all ready have? Even the fact, do I need to go out and buy a special controller r can I use one of my controllers?

Any wired Xbox 360 or Xbox One controller, first party or third party, will work. You can also use some of the newer wireless One controllers that use Bluetooth.

Thank you JumboWario.

Using a wired 360 controller works like a charm.

You can connect any 360 controller using a play and charge cable, and any Xbox One controller using a micro usb cable. You can also connect 360 and One controllers using a wireless adapter.

Thanks HolyHalfDead.

I had a wired 360 controller laying around so I used that.

I'm having the same problem. I have a pdp wired xbox one controller and have played the pc version that came with Windows 10 before about a month or so. I went to play it last night and nothing. No controller support and when I went to use joytokey, I couldn't get that to work either. So here I am, not able to play Minecraft after a month b/c Minecraft doesn't recognize my controller as being hooked up.

You need a wired XBox 360 controller.
