I own a Logitech controller and a PS2 Dualshock controller and I can't get them to work. Does this game only support XBOX controller?

Ok, thank you. I will emulate the XBOX controller with x360ce. I don't know why couldn't they just make any controller compatible though.

There are alot of games that will only use 360 controller.

Because Windows is owned by Microsoft. The 360 controller is pretty much the standard for PC games now, so you should just cave and buy one already. The new redesigned ones are pretty nice.

No thank you. I feel the xbox controller highly uncomfortable. The swapped left d-pad and analog stick don't work for me. Maybe it is because as a left handed I use my left hand to both use the left analog stick and hold the controller and while using my thumb in the analog stick I lose grip because it's too high.

I use a program called Motioninjoy DS3 tool. It pretty much take a Playstation controller and emulates it as a 360 controller. I use Ps3 controller on all my PC games because im not a mouse/keyboard fan

Yet you prefer the PS3 controller, which has quite possibly the most awkward and uncomfortable designs in the world. The triggers slant inward (you know Sony ****ed up when most PS3 FPSes use R1 for firing instead), the joysticks are far too wobbly and in an awkward position (not surprising considering that they were an afterthought), and the thing is so light it feels like a 2 foot drop would break it.

I'm a lefty too and have no problems at all with the 360 controller. I've never heard of anybody complain that the joystick is "too high", but I've heard plenty of comments stating that the PS ones are too low. Sony needs to retire that 18-year-old controller design already.

You mean that controller design that won them an Emmy for innovation, just, maybe, 3 years ago?

Yeah, totally!

I don't care which controller is bigger or smaller, heavier or lighter or has won a hundred prizes or no prizes at all. I buy and use what feels good TO ME, and TO ME the Xbox controller is highly uncomfortable, the Wii controller is uncomfortable when using it horizontally (that's why I bought a classic controller) and the Playstation controller feels good to my hands.
