Controller Recommendation

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I use my xbox 360 controller for a lot of PC games but there are just not enough buttons on it. Can anyone recommend a 360 controller, either from Microsoft or a 3rd party company, that came with extra buttons. I have seen similar things released before on other systems.

Thanks OCN


EDIT: Just stumbled accross this. Anyone have this or can confirm its compatible with the PC. I am assuming the extra buttons are still functional on a PC and would be recognized in game.

The one you just linked, I seen at london tech show looks nice and feels nice also.

To answer your question of is it compatible with PC

Guess I missed the windows logo in that pic. Thanks for the heads up. Good to know it feels good in the hand.

What games are you playing that end up requiring more buttons? Whenever I've used my 360 controller on PC games that didn't have controller support I've never had a problem mapping it correctly.

I bought the RAzer Onza the day before tomorrow on Amazon and it should be arriving soon. It should be a great Pad let's hope.
I think the extra buttons can be mapped to replace other buttons of the pad and I'm not completely sure they can be used as true 2 more bottons.

Well, if you're using a controller on an MMO that isn't intended for use on a controller, obviously it's likely you'll run into some issues mapping buttons... Although it is worth noting when I played Maplestory I actually got a really efficient controller set-up going.

As long as you keep proprietary buttons mapped in an intuitive manor you shouldn't have too hard of a time getting the things you need most in there.

Just watched some gameplay on Global Agenda and I bet you could pull off a controller if you make use of the buttons efficiently.
