Is the 360 controller still the standard for compatible games on the PC? Are there any advantages for using the xbone controller yet? I'm in need of something better than my 3rd party ps3 gamepad.
Take the Xbone one. I upgraded recently and damn, the new one is so good.
Also, you can just plug it in USB with any regular micro usb to USB cable, and it won't need any batteries as it's powered by the computer.
Why not the PC controller made by a PC company guys?
Steam controller. OooOoooo
Might as well get the Xbone gamepad. It's superior in every way and now you can get the PC receiver for wireless gameplay, or just use the USB charging cable for it for wired (which you can't do with 360 gamepad).
>you can get those bluetooth adapters from ebay/amazon for like $5
The 360 controller is not the regular bluetooth. It's proprietary encrypted so you need a "microsoft" wireless receiver, but you can buy 3rd party ones for less than $10 on eBay anyway.
Xbone can be wired via micro usb to play on pc
Xbox 360 needs to be wired version
Both have their own adaptors needed to play wireless on PC, just get the xbone and use micro usb
Microsoft has more knowledge about pc and hardware than valve, because they made windows and fucking xbox.
I rather trust Microsoft than valve
Also xbone controller>>>>>>>>>>>>>>steam controller
Xbone controller is better, loads of people still use 360 controller though because they've had them for years the the difference isn't that big. 360 Controllers cheap now though, so it wouldn't be a bad decision to buy one anyway and save money vs the xbone one.
