Wireless Controller

Post by Bull » Sat Sep 24, 2016 1:50 pm

Who has a wireless controller for their PC?

Looking to get one for casual gaming etc, who has one they can recommend? Is the XB/PS controller best options out there or is there something else thats good? Probably dont want to spend over $100. Seen a couple of Steel Series controllers relatively cheap if they're any good?

I don't have a wireless controller, but I have a wired 360 controller. I really like it, because most PC games have profiles built in for it, so prompts in game and such will use the button names and icons, rather than some generic "button 12" or something.

Can you even buy wired Xbox controllers anymore? Lol.

No issues installing it or anything like that Mike?

Not sure, I bought it four or five years ago.

Not on a windows PC no, you just plug it in and you're done.

^ Is that more or less what you use, without the wire?
