Yea, that's what I thought. I went in to buy a used wired 360 controller but the guy said it might not work correctly on PC. Oh well, at least this way I know for sure it works.

the official microsoft controller has never failed me, and you can find a ton of them used.

if you can only get wireless ones you can buy this

I have one and it works good.

I tried the Xbox One controller. I don't know.. it seems a little cheaper. Is it just me?

I haven't had any issues with the official controllers. Even after the wired one's cable was chewed up by my boxer/husky mix. Just patched up the cable, good as new. biggrin.gif

Some of the plastic bits feel REALLY cheap, like the back battery cover. The top shoulder buttons feel a little flimsy too.

Personally the sticks themselves feel a little better, they seem to have put a bit more texturing around the edges.

The Stock controller is the best controller.
Bought a $100 Razer controller and it broke within a few months.

I've had no problems with my RockCandy. They're cheap in comparison to an official xbox controller, don't feel cheap though.

Official Microsoft controllers are by far the best quality PC controllers that I have experienced. I have tried Logitech ones (various different models), and while they are reliably solidly built, on the software level, the Microsoft controller has the best out-of-the-box experience.

Hands down best PC controller. Logitech controllers don't compare.. Especially since some games don't recognize them. 360 controller works out of the box with any game that supports a controller.
