Wait, does the Xbox One's wireless controller work with the 360 wireless adapter? Because if not I can just cross that off the list right away

IIRC Wireless doesnt work at all with the PC + XBO pad

MS is really screwing things up big time.

Is MS's official 360 controller really the best one? I'm assuming most people here never really tried any third party ones. Third party controllers should work with PC right?

I've been using a Logitech Dual Action for years, and it's perfect. Like all of Logitech's products, it's rock-solid and does the job incredibly well.

If the game you're playing is a piece of **** that was only coded with XInput because of lazy and/or incompetent developers, just use an XInput emulator.

I'll vote for the XBOne or 360 Controller honestly, but I am pretty much surprised everybody went with a DualShock 3...

I got my wireless camo 360 controller for $30 new. I already had the pc adapter for it. Im not sure if the cheap Chinese adapters are worth it or not, but they're cheap.

It being wireless is worth its weight in gold. Sure you think 'oh but my PC is right here', but then you realize that it is right there...with you mouse, keyboard, monitor, speakers, and clutter. I get claustrophobic a little bit when I see lots of wires, even if they're tucked nicely away.

Question about the 360 controllers. For the wireless model (since I already have an official wireless adapter) can I get some sort of recharging USB wire that allows me to use the controller without the battery?

Edit: Nvm. I guess the play and charge kit works? But holy crap, it's freaking expensive.

I don't know where you guys buy controllers, but the DS3 isn't around $30 where I am. But oddly the wired 360 controller is..

I'm sure you'd be fine with either one TC, but 360 has native support. I really wish the DS3 did too, so I wouldn't need this extra controller.

Don't get a made for PC game pad. Get a proper console game pad that you can hook up.

PS3 controller can connect wireless over bluetooth, but it is finicky as to which bluetooth adapters are compatible.

PS2 controller is practically the same but wired (my preference) and is a bit heavier which I like. A PS2 to USB adapter is cheap.

Actually any wired controller you like will have a USB adapter available somewhere.

If you don't want analog sticks the best game pad is a USB Japanese style Sega Saturn pad. If you are playing fighting games or non-analog games this is the absolute best option, widely considered to be the best D-pad in existence, but they are hard to find and expensive.

I think the Xbox controllers are poor, although they are the easiest to connect to a Windows operating system.
Did I say that, or just think it? Was I talking? Did they hear me??
