    I am spending the summer with relatives- between 8-17, and i haven't had much use for a video game controller for my PC in some time.
    Seems i need one now. or two, lol.
    i have bought 3rd party PS2 (Shaped) controllers and they don't work. I bought a PS3 controller-USB- and it didn't work.

    so i need suggestions.
    i kinda hate the XBox 360 (or Games for Windows) controller but i am thinking i don't have much choice for getting a controller to work right out of the box.

    Any help here will be appreciated.

    if you're thinking cheap, you can buy a used xbox controller for $5-$10, then hack the end off and replace it with a usb cable. you should be able to find drivers online for it. that's what i've been using for the past 5 years and it works fine.

    Note: newer games will not work with this sadly. (IE: Ghostbusters)

    I have games- some older from my last PC which was a Win ME- that require a controller to play. Arcade titles and so on.
    But then again, i guess i could play Risk with Monopoly money and hotels, right? lol.
