Awesome controllers?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hello, i'm looking to get a pair of wireless usb controllers for emulators so i'd like to ask for links to good quality wise and cool looking controllers (maybe with feedback as well?). I'll spam some linkys so you'd know my prefs.

I like this one http://content.hwigroup.net/images/products/xl/060191/4/speedlink_devolution_pad_wireless.jpg

Is Speedlink any good? Never heard of this brand before.

I don't like "fat" controllers like this one http://www9.pcmag.com/media/images/229382-microsoft-xbox-360-250gb-wireless-controller.jpg

Also, logitech black one looks ok.

Get a bluetooth dongle, some PS3 controllers and download Motion In Joy. You'll get every function of the PS3 controller. Pressure sensitive buttons, both tilt axes, the works.
APU what?

Are PS3 controllers USB? I'm not sure i need pressure sensitive buttons tho cause i have wheel, if i want to play race games. Do these buttons act as normal buttons but are pressure sensitive in addition or do they have "travel" (like wheel pedals)?

PS3 controllers are wireless - hence the need for a bluetooth dongle. Of course the buttons act as regular buttons, it's a PlayStation controller. The buttons on PlayStation controllers have been pressure sensitive since the PS2.

You can also connect the PS3 controllers through USB via the charging port and it will work fine without having to connect through bluetooth. That's what I do.

The DS3 is quite a bit more expensive than the Xbox360 controller though, so unless you plan to play games with the d-pad, such as fighting games, you might as well go with a 360 controller.

Well, anything the 360 controller has support for, the DS3 will too. Because you emulate it into an xbox 360 controller.

emulation doesn't mean support, that is like saying that windows supports ps3 games because you have an emulator.
support means no emulation or third party configuration needed.

But you've got to like the DS3... I personally find the Dualshock design to be the worst recent times controller ever made. Analogs are so far down you push them diagonally instead of in X or Y axis (horrible for driving/flying sims), the buttons are so close to the palms that your fingers hurt to push the lower ones (unless you have small hands), and the start-select positions are so awkward it's hard to hit them without pushing the analogs...

Overall, for my hands, bad controller is bad. And I've got average hands, just long fingers.
