Now, I don't know about anyone else but I have found PC game pads to be lacking, even the higher end models seem fragile and have buggy analog sticks that seem to always have sensitivity problems. So, I got to reading the other day that that the xbox 360 controller used a USB interface, and that the only difference between the controllers for the 360 and the one that you could buy "for windows" was the driver disk. Today I was out shopping and saw some third party xbox 360 controllers on clearance for about $20, so I bought one and plugged it up to my PC, after finding the drivers for it on-line and installing them I am in computer game bliss! Finally, a console quality controller on my PC! It feels sturdy as hell and is pin-point accurate, I couldn't be happier.
