I have Arkham Asylum for the PS3, and really liked the controls. I'm getting Arkham City for free thanks to my purchase of a new GTX 560 Ti graphics card, mostly for Battlefield 3 coming out on Tuesday :D

It is possible to play with a PS3 controller? It'd probably be really comfortable for me, but if not, how is it playing with a keyboard? Seems like it would be difficult, especially pulling off some fast moves during combat, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

yes you can play with a ps3 controller but since it has native support for the 360 controller you might need to remap your buttons.

Just use "MotioninJoy" (Google it if you don't already have it). It will make your PS3 controller simulate a 360 one.

Yeah there are various programs to make PS3 controllers work on any game with gamepad support. But honestly if you're going to start playing PC games with a controller, why not get a wired 360 controller and use that? You can get them pretty cheap and they're far better.

MotionInJoy is the program to use for certain. It will emulate a 360 controller quite perfectly. I've been using it on a few games with my dualshock 3, works like a champ!

Honestly I'm not sure why you wouldn't just give the mouse & keyboard a try, it worked exceptionally well in Arkham Asylum, I'm sure it will work equally well on this game. Much faster response in turning and maneuvering than a controller.

I would pick a PS3 controller over a 360's controller any day but that's just me...

I would rank 'em M/KB >>>>>PS3 controller >360 controller

I played Arkyum Asylum on a PS3 Dual Shock, do a google search for Xbox 360 Joypad Emulator. It does exactly what it says, works with most but not all GFWL games, takes a while to configure the INI file as you have to re map all the buttons, but once thats done your set.

You could also use one of these

This is the best PS2 -> 360 joypad converter you can get, and unlike the cheaper ones you dont need to plug a real 360 pad into the side for it to work. Your PC will pick it up as a 360 wired controller provided you have official drivers for the wired 360 controller installed, and you can use your old PS2 Dual Shock no problem :-)
