Logitech F510 or MS 360 controller for pc

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have been trying to play games like force unleashed series,ninja blade,grid,need for speed series,spiderman shattered dimension,arkham asylum,street fighter IV,dragon age series...u name it...on the PC using a keyboard and mice. I also have some super nintendo and nintendo 64 roms and MAME roms with me aswell

before anyone tells me that i should get a driving wheel for the racing games...i have a logitech driving force gt which i like,but the way my corner desk is set up,it just wont stay attached to the middle of the desk well without losing its (lack of) grip around the edges and falling on my keyboard slide

and i have a HORI real arcade pro 3 stick w/ usb but i bought that to try tekken 6 on the ps3,which i figured im more of a pad user than a stick user

i've been searching online for what is a great controller for the pc. now i've played both 360 and ps3 consoles and had them for well over 2 years. controller layouts don't really matter for me,but quality does. whereas my ps3 sixaxis/ds3 controllers OR the 360 wireless black controllers i've had for the console NEVER died on me...i had a logitech wired rumblepad 2 for the pc. that didn't last like they did.

i wish i didnt sell my 360 but the only controller that was compatible with windows 7 is gone. i've looked online and found this

logitech F510

xbox 360 black wireless w/ play and charge kit

xbox 360 black wired controller for pc

the new logitech seems to gotten new triggers because old one was hard to reach. i do sort of care about the layouts,but i'm not sure which controller is more tuned for fighting/hack and slash games as the logitech is ps3'ish,pc market got choice of ps3 or 360 layout.

i just want lasting quality and compatibility but some options like pressure sensitive buttons/triggers might be good too. anyone here have experience with these controllers?

Hands down buy a wired 360 controller.

I own 2 for my pc and I don't even have a 360 lol.

It IS the best controller available for PC.

I would agree ive been using a 360 controller forever. it was a must have for games like prototype and shift and grid. i even used it for crysis2. thats right. i like it better for FPS games too.

check youtube. there are dpad mods that are simple to do for the 360 controller. to be honest with ya i cant see any reason to need the dpad. I used to cherish them for fighting games but once i got used to the analog for them there was no going back.

The black wireless controller you listed won't work with PCs. You'll need the [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Xbox-Wireless-Controller-Windows/dp/B002TIW7OI/ref=dp_cp_ob_e_title_1"]Windows[/ame] wireless version in order for it to connect properly through the included dongle.
Regardless, I use my wired controller for mostly racing games and haven't looked back.

that's incorrect. you can get third party adapters that will allow the wireless ones to work. people were using the wireless controllers before Microsoft officially supported wireless PC 360 controllers
