my xbox 360 pc controller died on me, need a good PC controller

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
i would love to avoid the 360 controller, but still want a plug and play controller that 360 compatible pc games will recognize as a 360 controller, is this possible or do i have to stick with a 360 controller?


and no i dont want to use any software like the dualshock 3/software thing u have to run... tried it, annoyed me.

360 controller will be your best bet.

 

If not take a look at Logitech F series such as F310, F510, F710. BUT I heard that on some rare occasions those controllers were not recognized as 360 controllers. But I can not fully comment on that.

Why not just replace the xbox controller? Honestly they are pretty much the best PC controller around, and that's not even counting the low price or the general compatibility.

Until the XB1 controller becomes available for PC users another 360 controller would be the best option.
Kinda hard to top the 360 controller.

PS3 controller is also pretty bad when it comes to dead zone, Sony went full retard making the dead zone as large as they did. Plus the triggers are meh.

Most 3rd party PC controllers these days are just copies of the 360 controller with slight changes.

Catch 22, you can't really use a nonxbox 360 controller with 360 compatible games without using some type of software like x360ce to make the game think you're using an xbox 360 controller. I say just replace the controller, it will save you the hassle in future, believe me, I had been using 2 different usb controllers that were cheaper but ultimately having to configure the software for each game.
