For yourself. Buying for someone else who has the system doesn't count.

I picked the bottom no since I usually had all the systems each gen. The only one I won't have is the Xbox 1 but nobody I know is buying one most going PS4+PC or PS4+WiiU+PC.

I bought a PS3 controller to play LBP with my friends. I didn't own a PS3 at the time.
I'm not familiar with the type of thing I'm seeing

I own two Xbox 360 pads and I don't own one.

Works great on my computer.

Yes, I have a XBox 360 for PC games.

Never owned a 360 and I doubt I ever will.

It's not necessarily a stupid thing to do. Particularly when it comes to rarer systems (Master System, 3DO, CDi, Jaguar, etcetera), I've nabbed dirt-cheap controllers at well below the going internet price prior to getting the systems themselves. I've done the same with obscure games as well, getting a deal before getting the console. Sometimes you gotta pounce on the deals when you see them.
