Looking for a wireless PC controller - PS3 controller, Logitech F710, or other?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Looking for a controller to use with racing and fighting/beat-em-up games. No, I don't want a wheel and/or an arcade stick, as I don't play either genres that much or that intensely; not to mention, they're pricier and obviously take up more space.

I know the PS3 controller can get drivers to work on the PC via Bluetooth, which would be nice since that would mean one less USB device. I used to have a PS1 and a PS2 too, so I'm pretty familiar with the controller. However, I had a 360 for some time, and now the PS3's shoulder/trigger buttons leave something to be desired.

So then I saw the Logitech F710. Looks pretty much like a combination of the PS3 and 360 controllers - the two drawbacks being the USB receiver, and the d-pad looking iffy (if it's anything like the 360 d-pad, it'll be crappy for fighting/beat-em-up games). Can anybody that owns it comment on the d-pad?

360 controller is out because of the receiver, simple as that. I'd like to be able to take the controller with me on the go, and I don't want to be bothered with a cable/receiver like that to go along with a controller that's supposed to be wireless.

I'm open to suggestions too, but it has to be wireless, and as mentioned with the 360 controller, have a small (or no, if Bluetooth) receiver.
