If you already have a 360 controller it isn't worth it to upgrade to a One even though I think it looks nicer (mainly cuz the buttons). My One controller works great on windows 10 and the 360 should be about the same.

If there's a price difference big enough to justify buying the 360 over the One, do it. If not, get the One :D

For the 360 you'll need a proprietary cable or the wireless dongle.

 

If you get a new one controller, it has bluetooth so if you have that you're good to go.

 

The 360 controller imo is much more comfortable, but I'm slightly biased

Its preference more than anything. I would spend the extra couple dollars on a one controller

@Slottr do you have any driver issues? i've heard you can only get a windows 7 driver.

No, I still use the 360 controller on my w10 pc.

I bought 2 XBOX 1S Controllers 6 months ago - plug and play windows 10, immediately recognized and was playing games on them no problem.  Works well with emulators, Steam etc etc etc.  Havent found a single complaint.  Cant speak to 360 controllers however.

 

I also have bought 2 knockoff brand 1S controllers from Wal Mart - also plug and play, no complains, MUCH Cheaper.  However that cheapness is evident when using the controllers...they just do not feel as good as the name brand.  However functionally they work just fine.

you can also just connect it using an USB Cable. that way you avoid having to charge it and connect using wireless solutions.
