I can't find the hardware forums anymore so I ask here, thanks gamespot.

So i looked around a little bit, so far the one who LOOKS soemthing I could like is the razer sabertooth, but I thought it's a little bit expensive, the Logitech f310 looks ok too but $$.

I also have a ps3 controller who apparently can work on PC but I don't know how it works exactly, I tried to look online but how to get it to work seemed a little bit of a hassle and I don't wanna fuck it up (if its possible) for when i will go back to play on my ps3 know what im saying.

So can some of you help me out ? Thanks.

P.S. Where did my gad dang display pic went ???

Well personally I prefer a mouse and a keyboard (especially when using a PC specifically), but that's just my opinion. Otherwise guy above me ^^^ is mostly right getting a PS3 controller to work for your PC isn't that hard.

A wired 360 controller (or a Wireless 360 controller with the USB Wireless Controller Adapter) work just fine and are natively supported by most games, even down to the key prompts being replaced by button prompts.

My go-to controller was always the (now obsolete) Logitech Wingman (superseded by the Precision, I think), mainly for it's cross-platform legacy support.

I use the 360 controller. It feels nice and it works fine with windows.

A quick glance at your posting history would seem to indicate that English is indeed hard... for you.

I use an Afterglow Xbox 360 usb controller for driving and sports games. It works decently well and it pretty inexpensive as well.

get a wired xbox 360 controller, plug it in and forget about it. best controller ever and works for 99% of this gens games.

easy choice.

Get a DualShock 4 in less than a month. Then, get a Steam Pad whenever it's released.

i use a wired 360 controller and its perfect

Considering pretty much every game is made specifically for the 360 controller, a wireless 360 controller. In the vast majority of games even the prompts ingame switch properly. There really isn't even a valid 2nd choice right now if you want both a great controller and ease of use. I can NOT wait till the ONE controller works on pc.

like others said the best supported and easier ( no need to install drivers or configure anything in game ) is 360 controller

Yes, I truly and utterly destroyed the english language didn't I, missed a whole 2 letter word right there... Please reply, I can't wait to see what comment you have to look like an even bigger douche.

I would definitely go with what everyone else is saying. wired controllers work best. Don't get Razr... my brother bought a Razr X360 controller and it broke after a few months. I bought an afterglow x360 controller. It lights up. It has turbo. Did I mention it lights up? It's only about 20 quid on ebay. Afterglow Wired Xbox360 Controller | Ebay

@PaperthinTV:

Unless you have the response time of a cyborg, there is no difference between a wired and wireless controller exacept the wireless is FAR more practical, especially if you game on a tv like lots of people do

#25 Posted by PaperthinTV (8 posts) -

I wanted a wireless controller. But I didn't think they worked for PC or something... my mistake :( I don't mind being wired.

#26 Edited by danten81 (129 posts) -

Dualshock 4. Not only does it connect via microusb, but Bluetooth support as well. Check your local Gamestop.

Agreed not having a cord to deal with on a controller is so much more convenient wish I had bought one sooner.

Standard 360 controller is good, I use a MadCatz FPSPro (360 controller). It is sadly wired, but it has lasted 2 years which is way longer than any other 360 controller. My next controller will be the DS4 because it is starting to show age, and did anyone know it is already available to buy (at least at gamestop.com if I am reading correctly)

I got myself a 360 wireless remote made for PC. Works really well with most games. I don't use it much but my girlfriend enjoys playing in the bed on the big screen so I figured I'd shell out for the wireless. Used it a few times just to see and I actually enjoyed it while playing games like sleeping dogs etc.

50$ here in Canada.

I personal use a wireless x360 controller, works well
