From Raspberry Pi Tutorials:
In addition to the control of the Raspberry Pi via infrared remote controls,433 Mhz transmitter, messengers and many more, also a wireless Xbox 360 controller can be read from the Raspberry Pi. This allows the gamepad to be used as an external mouse (in desktop mode) or in scripts and thus the GPIOs can be controlled. In RetroPie, the Xbox Controller can also be used as input media for games on the Raspberry Pi.
In this tutorial several of these possibilities are shown. From the installation of the required software, to the use as a mouse, to the switching of the GPIOs and the control of a servo motor with the joystick.
