I actually go the sabertooth controller. Its works the same as the 360 controller and uses the same drivers. I guess the plus to having it is you have extra buttons. It works through the controller so you don't have to mess with any programs. You have two extra buttons where the shoulder buttons are and four buttons (it's 2 rocker switches/buttons; idk what you call it) on the back of the controller.

Is it worth $80? Probably not, build quality seems solid to me. I actually like the buttons on this controller more than my DS3 or DS4 but that's just preference.

Truth is between your final choices you can't go wrong. You can't make the wrong choice because they will all work the exact same anyways.


True. I am probably going for the sabertooth even though its $80 because i dont really need the $100 for anything else anyway.

Wired 360 controller is the only choice. Instant drivers and most games are literally made for it.

By most I mean any game made for PC in like the last 4 years.


I use my PS3 controller for all my games. Works exactly like if you have a 360 controller plugged in. Its also a far better controller as well.

Why would you pay double the cost for what is essentially the same controller but made by a company notorious for being of lesser build quality despite their inflated costs? A couple extra buttons? Your money to waste I guess.

I'm not an Xbox fanboy but that is ridiculous. Now if you said the dual shock 1 which I still use on occasion then maybe.

I use a wired 360 controller and have never had any issues with it.
