Can you use the Nvidia Shield controller on a PC?
Ok I know that Nvidia does not officially support using the Nvidia Shield controller for direct use with a PC, but I was wondering if there's any workaround to get it working? When I plug the controller directly into my PC, it recognizes it as an Nvidia controller, but it does not work on any games. Anyone?

No, currently the Shield controller is only supported for use with the Shield Tablet and Shield Portable.

I don't have the Shield Controller but I did just update the firmware on my Nvidia graphics card and it has support now. I believe it must be wired but it's a start. See Nvidia's FAQ here

Yeah apparently it does work but currently only on computers running nvidia graphics cards. This is something they are going to change though and will support pc's running other graphics platforms. Not sure when they will be updating though.
