Probably, but the 360 controller is not a good choice for retro gaming. The DPad on it is terrible, it's way too easy to hit a diagonal when you don't want to. It's weird when you discover that you get more precise control using the left analog stick than the dpad. Seriously, whoever designed the 360 controller did not mean for the dpad to be used as main input device. It is clearly meant for secondary controls such as weapon or inventory selection or whatever it is used for in modern games.

I'm not making this up and it's not just me. There is a widespread mod to make the dpad more precise that involves cutting out a disc from thin plastic and inserting it between the dpad and the contacts.
