I used to play FFXI on the PS2 when it came out and am going to be starting up again soon and was wondering if there are any controllers out there that will allow me to play similiar, thanks in advance...

I use a Logitec Wireless Rumblepad 2 and it works great.

I think the Xbox 360 controller works great on PC.

You can find a PS2 to USB device pretty cheap. That's what I use.

I use a wired xbox 360 controller and I love it. The only thing though is the Microsoft drivers suck so you have to use third party driver in order to use the left and right triggers. It took me about 30 min to get the whole thing to work right but I am very pleased with the results. I set the control's to work just like the xbox360 version.

You can get a logitech USB ps2 shaped controller at best buy for like 15 bucks.
Use the FFXI Config function to configure it (or any other controller).

to the post that was talking about the 360 controller, how did you obtain the drivers, i was looking for the game for 360 and couldn't find it so i got it for pc and would love to be able to use my controller. It would be a big help if you could give me some info on how you got it working.

I have the logitech dual analog usb controller but it doesn't seem to work where is the FFXI configuration that you used Knight?

You could just always get a USB converter to use your PS2 controller with your computer, or walk into a store like Best Buy and buy a USB controller with the same button layout.
