    So, back in the Windows Mobile days, it was hot to use bluetooth game controllers (PS3, anyone?) for phone games (especially emulated games).
    It seems, to me, that Windows Phone (with its heavy XBOX integration) would be an excellent place to debut some XBOX controller functionality.
    I have two XBOX 360 wireless controllers (I use them on my computer with a USB receiver).
    It, certainly, would be cool to use them to play games (Gun Bros., anyone?).

    From m.k. (Snes8x and VBA8 creator)...
    Hardware controllers are not supported on Windows Phone at all

    I don't think so , unlike the PS3 (Standard BlueTooth connection) The Xbox uses a proprietary wireless signal , that's why you need a special USB receiver to use it on a PC .

    FYI...
    The Xbox controller works with the Surface RT, right out of the box.

    How does this work? Wireless? Or do you have to plug it into the usb port?

    You could get the wireless receiver they sell or use a wired one.

    MOGA is the way to go. The creator of VBA8 and Snes8x already confirmed they would support the MOGA controller

    I wanted to order one Pro controller - the shipping to the Czech would be another 100$ extra. :(

    Does the Moga support Windows Phone 8? I'd like to be able to play Nova or Modern Combat with it on the phone.

    Windows Phone does support the Moga controller (at least as far as reviews have said, I haven't used one).
    I think individual games may need to support it, though (I'm not sure if it just works on everything).

    Would be awesome to play the new Halo Spartan Assault with an Xbox controller!

    I'm loving playing games with an Xbox controller on my surface... Just put out the kickstand a plug in the controller... Asphalt, halo, snes, etc.

    I would get the mogo controller for the phone, though I do not game as much on the phone... I would rather them bring the games the the surface rt than leave them on the mobile phone... My battery and service uptime is more important... I need them to being batman, Spiderman along with 6Guns plus many more...

    Gameloft has the potential to the number one publisher for windows. While other publishers sit back and wait, Gameloft will be taking our money and we will be happy to give it.
