No thanks, I'll stick with my superior 360 controller


Sorry, but the 360 controller is junk. The Dpad is junk, the buttons get stuck and break, the analog sticks get grindy and are junk... JUNK

The one with the transforming D-Pad is pretty decent (for fighting games mostly).

I want a Steam controller, even though I already have a 360 controller and like it. I wonder how much they'll cost.

I might buy the controller for my home theater/gaming rig. Maybe I'll eventually dump Windows and install SteamOS someday. Of course, Steam isn't giving up on Windows any time soon.

Fighting games should be played with a fightstick only. And if you truly need a controller for it then use a PS3 controller, has a much better d-pad.

What so funny is this.

The secret is actually quite simple, it turns out: Valve designed the case so the parts can breathe individually. The CPU blows air out the top, the power supply out the side, and the graphics card exhaust out back, and none share any airspace within the case.


That is what Xbox 360 design should have been from the start.

It took Valve on there first try.

That's Valve engineering at it's finest.

I bought a ps3 controller for that very reason. A fightstick isnt very portable and they are ghastly expensive for any that are of real quality. I actually prefer the original SNES pad for fighting games, it was the greatest.

My gaming rig: ASUS G73JW: I7 740qm, 8 gigs ddr3, Nvidia Geforce 460m.
I like single player games. Nothing is quite as enjoyable as playing with myself.
