Which one should i purchase to play games on my PC? witcher 3, arkham knight etc
Xbox 360 or Xbox One
Can both be played wired or via a USB wireless dongle. Please note the Xbox one wireless dongle is inbound so not in the shops yet.
There are other options but those would be the popular choice.
Is that what most PC users prefer?
You can use a DS4 as well but the Xbox controllers are plug and play and games are usually mapped to use them.... theyre also very nice.
Thanks houghsx and mozza54
ps4 controller works fine but the only thing with you need to have a program running to make it work
I've tried that but honestly, I've never been 100% successful in my attempts lol
DS3 and motioninjoy
The Dual Shock 4 has the added niceness of a touch pad which can drive your mouse cursor. There is software out there to make it emulate an Xbox pad and it connects wirelessly via bluetooth with a custom driver. Not exactly plug and play though.
I'm surprised the Logitech F710 doesn't seem to get much love. Replicates an Xbox pad wirelessly (and comes with the dongle you need) but, unlike the Xbox gamepad, also allows you to map keyboard commands to buttons for games that do not well support gamepads.

Also, steam controller pre-orders are open now for delivery in October.
ds3 is for ps4 and this is how i got my ps4 controller to work
DS4 To XInput Wrapper
I got a ps3
With ps3 wireless controller
Can I still do it with my controller?
You can use a PS3 controller with the PC yeah, its a bit fiddly but its possible.
Yeah I've been to the fiddly part and beyond lol
sorry i mean ps4 and for ps3 i used xpadder but i had to remap all the buttons
if you want a xbox 360 controller go asda and get a afterglow which is £15 as its plug and play or buy a used one which i could put up on the classified boxed
Steam controller will be out in October, definitely going to give one of them a go.
your problems are because of motionjoy, it's the worst software for a DS3/DS4 pad.
You should be using the SCP driver package.

Just buy a 360 pad, and remove all the hassle of drivers and software
I think your right aslird ;-) thx
Got one for my gaming laptop.

You do mean Torid, but I can't help but think the way you wrote it, was a description of what you thought of it...!

Lol! Thats the one
Logitech Chillstream, has a fan and vents to supply cooling air to the hands during intense sessions. It's crap.
Has anyone got a side by side comparison of a playstation controller with the Logitech F310/710?
The xbox 360 controller causes tenosynovitis in my left thumb, whereas the ps2/ps3 controller are just the right size for my hands. I was hoping the Logitech is a similar size or I'll just get a ps2 to usb converter.
i use a ps4 pad with inputmapper. tend to use with usb cable as i keep losing the BT dongles. my only issue is that inputmapper can sometimes crash but thats it. great little pads.
