xbox 360 controller for pc

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I wanna get an xbox 360 controller to play a few games on the pc(only, I dont have an xbox). I came across a MadCatz controller:http://cgi.ebay.com/MadCatz-Wired-Co...item588bc45583
It looks like it has a better design than the original controller, my question is will it work ok, I mean no compatibility issues?

Go for it

Hi,
have you thought about the xbox 360 wireless controller for windows?

http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/540864...s/Product.html

I used to use the wired controller and i allso used to wish the wireless controller worked in windows but there was'nt a usb wireless reciever out in them days.
As soon as there was a reciever released i moved wireless and it's been so much more of a happy game experience ever since.
Do away with the wires, if you can stretch the controller budget to the wireless controller i'm sure you would greatly appreciate wire free gaming.

thanks for the prompt reply guys, gonna get 1 of those. As for the wireless version, I think Im gonna pass on that as I dont usually like wireless controllers/mice/keyboard, due to input lag? Anyway thanks for the suggestion, maybe Ill take a look on it.

You can buy an Official Xbox 360 Wired controller and it'll work on Windows. Think I'd probably rather use that as it feels good.

I have a wired one! It's the best thing ever. Many games have support for it and auto-map the controls for you like someone mentioned above. I would skip the wireless, the wired one has a very long cord and you never have to worry about batteries. Just smarter in my opinion.
