I spent way too much time on this, but let's see how your claim plays out.

2. Akai MPK249 $400
2. Yamaha P71 $415
3. 21.5 inch iMac $1100 (although this is the base model, probably a good estimate)
3. Edifier R1280T Near Field Monitors $99
5. Asus 24" monitor $130x5=$650
4. Logitech G27 I'm going to say around $300, even though Amazon has it listed for nearly $1000. Seems like the MSRP a few years ago was $300-$400.

  1. Logitech G Saitek X52 Flight Control System $150
  2. Logitech C600 $30
  3. Opolar F401 $12
  4. Logitech G610 $90, although some versions on amazon are closer to $60
  5. (I couldn't figure out what the other keyboard is, but it's probably junk that the OP didn't spend a lot of money on.)
  6. Logitech Z623 $100 (I think these are right)
  7. HTC Vive $500
  8. Logitech Z-2300 $180 MSRP, I'm fairly certain that I'm wrong about this one though
  9. Wireless Xbox Controller $42

    Add in like $1000 for each desk and $2000 for each computer we don't see (assuming there are two), that gets us to a total of $11,068.

    There is a laptop bag stashed on the left side of the frame, so maybe it's a $9000 laptop.
u/Go_Away_Masturbating · 103 pointsr/gaming

Not really for D-pad reliant games, though. Despite having the best overall controller, the 360's D-pad is a mushy POS. For modern games that focus on analog sticks, a 360 controller is perfect, but for older games that rely on a D-pad I use an SNES controller with one of these.

EDIT: MS did release a pro controller with a twist-out better D-pad, but it is $50 separately and can't really be considered the official 360 controller when it's not packed in with the system.

It might be your power brick, it’s about $20 I believe on amazon

u/DonkeyManda · 27 pointsr/gaming

Haha, sorry, they're pretty much available where games are sold, I got mine from JB Hi-Fi in Aus, but they should be available wherever. No idea if they have a different name, sorry I can't be more help! Amazon Link

u/vanoreo · 24 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Mouse: Logictech G502. It is widely considered to be the "best" mouse for PC enthusiasts.

Keyboard: Will heavily depend on your preferences, but I have a DASKeyboard 4 Ultimate with Cherry MX Blues (tactile click). I have also heard nice things about the Corsair K70, and Strafe. If you are new to mechanical keyboards, I would recommend checking out the subreddit /r/mechanicalkeyboards for more information.

Headset: I just use an old set of Turtle Beach X12s I've had forever, because I usually just use my soundbar, but a buddy of mine prefers to use a desk mic and some Audio-Technica headphones.

EDIT: Saw your budget in the other comments. You should probably go with the Strafe for your keyboard. Most others below $100 aren't as high of quality. Personally, I think you should get the Strafe, the G502, and the headphones/mic combo.

u/TransitionalTime · 21 pointsr/buildapc

It's a Xbox 360 controller made with fighting games in mind.

u/MetalBeerSolid · 19 pointsr/gaming
u/Skunkwourk · 15 pointsr/gaming

This is probably the best option for those who have Wired Xbox 360 controllers and want to use them on the PS3.

I actually use the XCM Cross battle Adapter which I bought 4 years ago for $40. Absolutely no lag of any kind and works perfectly with my Xbox 360 wired.

EDIT: You can find a few of my particular model here on Amazon along with some reviews of the product.

Also, look into getting a 12 month subscription of Xbox Gold (or maybe 3 or 6 months depending on your financial situation). Right now Microsoft is giving away 2 games for gold subscribers a month. Right now we can download Assassin's Creed 2 for free. You can usually find a 12 month subscription for $35 if you scour the internet hard enough.

And not mods (well, you may be able to mod it depending on the model; some are easier than others), but if you sign up for bing rewards, you can earn free Microsoft points. I've cashed out over $100 since the start of the year. I pretty much don't have to buy games any more.

u/Mutericator · 12 pointsr/Games

Dunno why you'd pay $24 for a converter when you can just pay $32 plus shipping for a new wired one that you can also use on the 360: http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Wired-Controller-Black/dp/B003ZSN600

EDIT: Also note the "New from $23.99" as well, so there ya go.

Afterglow Controllers

u/bigtimetimmyt · 11 pointsr/xboxone
u/LeftMySoulAtHome · 11 pointsr/GirlGamers

Hi! I also have chronic pain/am disabled. I play Steam games with an Xbox One controller with the Windows 10 wireless adapter. (I tried the Steam Controller but it was bulky, not intuitive, and I basically hated it. lol. YMMV.)

I have my tower sitting in this cabinet, which I covered with this film to keep everything hidden. My husband cut out the back of the cabinet to install a fan / make room for the cables to come out of the back.

We used these cord covers to keep everything neat.

I use this wall-mounted swing arm from Amazon for my monitor. I push it toward the wall when I am done. (I put my chair/station in the corner for this to work.)

I sit in an IKEA Poang chair with ottoman, using this lower lumbar cushion and this coccyx cushion.

I use this mouse arm on the Poang chair, these cushions for my elbows, and a beanbag rest for my wrist (for when I have to use the mouse).

My keyboard sits on a shelf beside me and I pull it onto a lap desk (stored under my chair) for when I need to use it.

I also have a wall mount for my Xbox One controller.

I hope that helps! It took me a long time to get something together that keeps my living room still looking like a living room. :)

u/zackogenic · 10 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

Wireless controller, $40 bucks on amazon.

u/pansensuppe · 10 pointsr/PS4

While the Xbox One controller is a great evolution to the 360 controller, the PS4 controller is a real revolution if you compare it with the DS3. It feels so great in your hand. The size is perfect and the buttons and the D-Pad are by far the best compared to any other controller. The new surface feels really good, especially with sweaty hands like mine. Even the triggers are now better than the ones on the Xbox One controller (despite the nice rumble feature).

There is only one thing where the Xbox One controller is still superior and that are those great new thumbsticks with the slip-proof rim. But guess what... you can replace the PS4 with those original X1 sticks pretty easily http://www.amazon.com/Original-XBOX-ONE-Controller-analogue-Thumbsticks/dp/B00IZSTNKW or even get some fancy 3rd party plastic or metal sticks in any color http://www.gadgettidings.com/product/custom-metal-dark-grey-thumbsticks-analogue-thumb-sticks-for-sony-dual-shock-4-ps4-controllers/ for a couple bucks to create the ultimate controller: DS4 with X1-sticks!

u/samcuu · 9 pointsr/buildapc

It's much better, but also more expensive. If you are willing to expand your budget that much, go for it.

Here's one I put together. Still bigger than your budget, but not as much.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/jNjp9W

No need for a CPU cooler, the stock one will work just fine. Cheaper RAM, cheaper GPU (that would still be able to play those games).

Also the controller like in the Alienware link isn't $150. Amazon has it for $35.

u/AuldM · 9 pointsr/aww

Correct, that would be the matte silver controller. source

And that kitten is adorables!

u/Narrative_Causality · 9 pointsr/gaming

The 360 has a new D-pad for it's silver version: http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Silver-Controller-Play-Charge/dp/B0041HROGG

It's VERY nice. It has a strong click when you press the directions.

u/No1s_On_Meth · 8 pointsr/Rockband
u/SadXbox · 8 pointsr/xbox360

The ancient SATA interface used by the Xbox 360 will always be faster than the even more ancient USB 2.0 ports, but it might not hurt to invest in a better flash drive. I have installed plenty of games to USB drives, and they have worked as well as hard drive installs. that said, the 360 runs a test when you format a USB drive for use as Xbox storage, so if it passed, you might not see much improvement from a newer/better USB drive. If it did not pass, then I would definitely look at a new USB drive. keep in mind the most space you can get from a single USB drive for game installs is 32GB. you can buy a generic 250GB Xbox 360 S hard drive for $36 delivered right now. a knock-off 500GB is $50 delivered. a decent 32GB USB 2.0 drive will be $10-$15 delivered. You can get a USB 3.0 drive, but the 360 will only be able to get USB 2.0 speeds max.

u/MaGna720 · 7 pointsr/Rockband

I'll paste what I've posted in a similar thread about this:

I'd recommend the Alesis Nitro Kit:

https://www.amazon.com/Alesis-Nitro-Kit-Electronic-Cymbals/dp/B0187KO8X4

I purchased this about two months ago and have been using it in RB3 in preparation for RB4, and couldn't be happier with it in terms of sensitivity, accuracy, feel, etc.

To get it to work in RB4, you'll need:

A MIDI cable (connects drum kit to MIDI adapter): ~$6

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000068NTU

The MIDI adapter (connects drum kit to PDP Adapter): ~$30

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00409SOD2

The PDP adapter (connects MIDI adapter to console) that just started shipping: ~$30

u/jbigboote · 7 pointsr/xbox360

have you seen the newer OEM controller, that has the "transforming" D-pad?

u/Sylux102 · 7 pointsr/emulation

I think there was a madcatz controller that did this. Lemme look it up.

EDIT: Something like the MadCatz MLG Pro controller, but with moveable face buttons as well in a module type setting.

u/treyguad · 7 pointsr/PS4

I just bought the xbone thumb sticks and installed them on my DS4. This was the best decision ever! At first I was skeptical but all the people over at r/ps4mods highly recommended it! Just be sure to watch a few how to install videos and then you'll be golden. I bought these ...

They fit perfectly and if you have ever used a xbone controller you know they have wonderful grip. Good luck bud!

u/gimptactics · 6 pointsr/gaming

With a VGA cable adaptor. This is the official one but there are others: http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-VGA-HD-AV-Cable/dp/B000B6MLTG/

u/Slanderpanic · 6 pointsr/Steam

Protip: You can get one for $25 from Amazon. The only downside to the 360 controller, in my experience, is that the D-pad sucks. Newer models have a better D-pad, but they'll also run you about sixty Earthican buckazoids.


I also have one of these. Games don't tend to discover and auto-configure to it as well as they do with the 360 controller, but it's good, solid hardware. The buttons and analog sticks are precise and it's got a good hand-feel. Most importantly, the left analog stick and D-pad are on what's called a "Cyborg" module. That means you can pop it out and turn it around based on your preference. For instance, if you prefer a Playstation-style layout, you can have it. Hell, for 12 buckazoids and free shipping, it's worth trying.

u/lrv94 · 6 pointsr/gaming

I used it at a small nvidia event thing before it was released, but using the final retail model. I didn't really like it too much, I found the screen was a bit too small for some decent gaming, it was heavier than I expected it to be, the controller doesn't feel like it'd be comfortable for long term use and I overall didn't really get the point of it, as without the use of a VPN and always having a strong 4G LTE connection, you can only use it in your house, you know, the place where your PC is, and it's not like you can stream it from your PC, play on shield, do other stuff on pc (such as another user), overall, there's much cheaper solutions to this, if you have a gameklip and a wireless xbox controller with the dongle and some software called splashtop.

Also, shield requires a minimum of a GTX 660, the DIY version works with anything, except it does only stream at 800x600 (stable) and it only works on games that have borderless windowed (or just windowed, if you can deal with start menus etc), but it's a solution if you only play a few games and have a smartphone.

TL;DR: Screen too small, bit too heavy, uncomfortable to use for long periods of time, cheaper alternative if you don't mind some setbacks

EDIT: Word fail

u/KaladinStorms · 6 pointsr/xboxone

from a 3rd party


If you want a genuine OEM version you can follow this guide to ordering a replacement and they will send you the appropriate version based on your shipping address (DON'T SHIP TO THE STATES)

u/friendofrobots · 5 pointsr/Games

I highly recommend picking up a wired xbox 360 controller: http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Wired-Controller-Black/dp/B003ZSN600/

I've saved a significant amount of money by buying games like AC2, Arkham Asylum, GTA IV, and Just Cause 2 on Steam sales instead of waiting for the console version to go on sale. It has definitely paid for itself in that respect.

u/Drakel101 · 5 pointsr/gaming

http://xpadder.com/ will let you map the controller's buttons to whatever you want.

If you want to invest in a better controller then the Xbox 360 wired controller is the way to go. Most Games for Windows titles have built in support and it's also reasonably durable and comfortable.

u/epik · 5 pointsr/soccer

http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Wired-Controller-Black/dp/B003ZSN600/ref=dp_ob_title_vg

It's just plug n' play with windows. You gotta use a controller for this game.

FIFA 11 is not the same game on PC as it is on the consoles. It is the generation previous engine.

FIFA 12 will be exactly the same. Or so they say.

u/SyncOne · 5 pointsr/GameDeals

Just curious, why not buy the xbox 360 wired controller for $30 and save yourself a few bucks not having to buy the wireless receiver/charging kit? In my experience, I'm never more than 9 feet (length of the cord) away from the computer when gaming.

u/aftli · 5 pointsr/ShouldIbuythisgame

Keep in mind that the one which comes with the dongle ($42) is only slightly more costly than the one that doesn't ($36). Not $20 more. So if you don't have a controller at all, it's not worth buying them separately.

u/sirjimithy · 5 pointsr/Rockband

Unfortunately not. E-drums can't be used on Xbox one until PDP's wired legacy adapter comes out his fall. And then it can only work with ION kits, or via the RB3 MIDI Pro adapter with kits that have MIDI out (won't work with USB out). Since your kit only has USB out, you may not be able to use it. (I heard about one way that involves running it through your computer, and then MIDI from your computer to the xbox, but that is impractical for most people.)

Based on this sub's recommendation, I bought an Alesis Nitro kit about 2 months ago for $300 on Amazon. It has MIDI out and is a terrific kit for that price. I can't recommend it enough. I've been using it with Rock Band 3, and can't wait to use it in RB4 when my adapter comes in.

u/Easy_fan · 5 pointsr/Rockband

I have my doubts that the one you linked would work. The PDP wired legacy adapter seems to be coming in and out of stock the last few weeks, so its not discontinued yet. Even then, the PDP adapter only works with 3 devices, the midi pro adapter, ion drums, and the rockband stage kit (do note that while the PDP adapter will hook up the stage kit to the xbox one, there is no coding in RB4 to use it at this time). So even if you could get one of the PDP adapters it would not work with your GH2 explorer.

u/GL4MURR · 5 pointsr/Rockband

It has to pass through the midi interface before it can pass through usb. For that you need the xbox one legacy adapter and xbox 360 midi adapter. (Xbox one legacy adapters were made and sold in short supply and they probably won't come back. If you don't already have one then you should try playing your kit on rock band 3. You can get custom drum songs there too.)

Then you have to set your kit's pads and cymbals to the correct midi notes (using the drum brain), which is how Rock Band knows what gem you're trying to hit. Those numbers are in the manual for the midi adapter

u/jimbonics · 5 pointsr/Rockband

Step one:

Find a PDP Wired Legacy Adapter for a reasonable price and buy it. You cannot use eKits on the XB1 without it and it's a fairly scarce item. It's a very sobering state of affairs.

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=pdp+wired+legacy+adapter

Step two:

Buy this now. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00409SOD2

Also required.

Step three:

Since you're still in the early stages of drumming, the Alesis Nitro kit for $300 $254 is a nice starting point.

HOWEVER

If you can spring 200 more, absolutely for SURE get the new Alesis Surge kit, which is mesh drum heads instead of rubber. Feels more like the real thing, more responsive, and waay quieter.

u/fartingboobs · 5 pointsr/pcgaming

Unfortunately, this method doesn't work - at least to my knowledge. I wanted to do the same thing, but it didn't work. Ended up buying a wired 360 controller, and that works like a charm. They're pretty cheap on Amazon right now. http://www.amazon.com/Wired-USB-Controller-Xbox-360-Black/dp/B007LQG9A6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1371519436&sr=8-1&keywords=wired+xbox+360+controller

u/Chip_McBoober · 5 pointsr/Games

Amazon seems to have these much cheaper, unless I'm missing something. New too. I recently just had a friend buy a 500 gig HDD and it runs fine for the slim.

u/mlozano88 · 5 pointsr/xboxone

Saw this one on Amazon as the choice selection for about $30 w/ decent reviews:

Xbox One Power Supply Brick, [Advanced QUIET VERSION] AC Adapter Power Supply Charger Cord Replacement for Xbox One 100-240V, Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06Y2LGTW3/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_Qb-8AbXSN06GF

Think they also have the OEM one at about $60

u/McGrude · 4 pointsr/gaming

That connection is only capable of standard definition TV ( 480i )

At the bare minimum connect via a component cable, it will have the white and red audio cables, a yellow composite cable, and a set of blue, green and red component video cables. Using the component video connection from this cable will allow you use either 720p or 1080i.

I connect one of our Xboxes to our TV with component video and it does 1080i just fine. Our other Xbox is on my desk and connects to my monitor via the Xbox VGA cable and is running at the LCD monitor's native resolution of 1680x1050 and looks very good.

There's actually a device that acts as a hub that allows you to use Xbox 360 wired controllers on the PS3. I personally think both controllers have their pros and cons but I was thinking about getting one of these adapters for sports games on my PS3.

u/LovableContrarian · 4 pointsr/gaming

$25 for a dumpster controller of unknown origins? I think I'll take the hit and buy a brand new one for $35.

Tip: Your brother is going to ruin his awesome gift if he get's greedy and keeps asking for too much money. Some free money >>>> nothing because you think you deserved $25 for each one.

u/cjt09 · 4 pointsr/truegaming

For single player games, consider picking up a wired Xbox 360 controller to play with. That way you get the control scheme that your prefer as well as the bonus of a higher resolution/better graphics/mods/etc. I wouldn't recommend it for multiplayer though--for obvious reasons.

u/cyberjedi · 4 pointsr/gaming

This is pretty cool but too small and costs more than an X-box 360 controller which will work for Windows based gaming

u/TightAustinite · 4 pointsr/Rockband

Pretty much any ekit will work, provided the brain has a MIDI out, which they almost all do.

What you need to get, RIGHT NOW, is a Mad Katz MIDI Pro adapter.

https://www.amazon.com/Catz-Rock-Band-PRO-ADAPTER-Wii-Nintendo/dp/B00409SOD2

And a MIDI cable. The e-kit can come later, but you absolutely must have that adapter. 20 bucks used, because they aren't made anymore, and they will disappear entirely at some point.

But as for kits, The Nitro Surge is really dope for the price point.

u/BaddDadd2010 · 4 pointsr/Rockband

Amazon, only $20. It says it's used, but it's actually new. It just has a manufacturing defect that makes the plastic shell sticky. Clean it with rubbing alcohol or goo-gone.

u/Hypobasis · 4 pointsr/Games

Couple more reasons for the 360 controller:

Most games support it out of the box, and most will replace the UI elements with their respective buttons. So, instead of saying "Press TAB to view the score", it will say "Press (BACK) to view the score" or "Right trigger to shot web" and such.

Off the top of my head I know that Skyrim and NFS: Hot Pursuit support it, along with RFG and just about every GFWL game.

You can also pick up a wired controller if that floats your boat, they work great as well and are slightly more hardy than the wireless FOB.

There's also a couple of variants of the 360 controller, the Onza and the Adjustable D-Pad one that fixes the shitty dpad a little bit.

u/rdjvesey · 4 pointsr/GameDeals

It's cheaper on Amazon and eligible for free prime shipping. Does anyone know of a good headset that uses a USB port rather than the audio jack? The audio jack on my laptop is on the fritz.

u/CharlestonChewbacca · 4 pointsr/NintendoNX

I mean, honestly, I would like something like this that allows you to hotswap the layout of all 4 components.

In the current gen, I think the PS4 controller is the most comfortable and has the best buttons, but the XB1 has the best control sticks and the most practical layout, but I love the WiiU pro for classic games because using the DPad and the buttons makes it feel like a SNES controller.

u/n0837 · 4 pointsr/Skullgirls

I was eyeing the Q4 as well. The position of the start button was kind of a downside for me. Do you accidentally press it a lot? Is it a nuisance? Or is it more out of the way from the buttons?

edit: here's the one I was looking at.

u/desirelife · 4 pointsr/PS4

I got these: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IZSTNKW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

u/eegras · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Not without introducing massive amounts of display lag.

Get one of these.

u/seifer93 · 3 pointsr/gaming

I think you're confusing it with the plug and play kit, those don't make it PC compatible. You need something like this to use a wireless 360 controller on PC. I guess it's possible that stores around you sell 360 controllers with the adapter, but I've never seen them bundled, in fact, I've never seen the adapter in any physical stores, bundled or not.

For me, it isn't about convenience, it is about cost. Both the wired and wireless cost ~30USD, but for the wireless you need to tack on the cost of a wireless adapter, and batteries and/or charging kit. All in all the convenience comes with a pretty hefty price tag, and for someone like me, who is more comfortable in their desk chair, there really isn't any use for it.

u/NoSkillManiac · 3 pointsr/buildapc

I run with an Afterglow LED Wired Xbox controller. It's awesome, and you can toggle the glow between glow-on, glow-off, and a glow-on-vibration setting

u/Adayatatime · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Most games are compatible with controllers. A xbox 360 controller will work with no extra drivers since the drivers are already in Windows. Although, you need an adapter to make a wireless controller work. My suggestion is to get a wired controller which plugs in over USB and requires nothing special to work. A PS4 controller, Xbox One controller, and even PS3 controller will work but you have to use special software to make them work. For ease of use, just get a wired xbox 360 controller.

I'd personally just purchase a Wired Xbox 360 controller and also an USB extension cord on the side. No need for batteries, the controller is great, it's cheap and it's more or less the easiest solution

u/juaquin · 3 pointsr/Steam

I haven't tried the Steam version of GTA4, but yeah, when I played the PC version in the past it was completely painless. The 360 controller is supported by default: http://support.rockstargames.com/entries/479429-currently-supported-controllers-for-gta-iv-pc

You'd need something like this if you don't already have a controller. It contains both the controller and the USB wireless adapter. You can also get a normal wired one but for the small price difference, I would go wireless. Just personal preference.

u/AgentDonut · 3 pointsr/gaming

I just bought one the other day. If it's not available in stores, online is a pretty good option.

u/Pielikey · 3 pointsr/pcgaming

the wired xbox 360 controller is almost always the go-to reccomendation because:

1 it'll last a long time

2 it needs no drivers on windows computers (but if it does they are easy drivers to get)

3 it's comfortable to hold

you can buy a wireless controller too if you want but you also have to buy a reciever for it (which costs around 15 bucks or so)

u/EthanBB · 3 pointsr/Games
u/unforgiven91 · 3 pointsr/Steam

A standard wired controller

http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Xbox-360-Wired-Controller/dp/B003ZSN600

should work as a simple plug and play. Mine does.

u/boxsterguy · 3 pointsr/htpc

> I hear Xbox controllers work great, but they are so expensive comparatively.

How many controllers do you need? How often are you buying new controllers? The "Xbox 360 Controller for Windows" (includes the wireless dongle, does not include a rechargeable battery but does include 2 AAs) is currently about $50. Adding a Quick Charge Kit and spare battery is an optional ~$45 that you can spend later. Also, I believe that the wireless dongle allows multiple controllers to connect to it (I haven't verified this, though), so you can buy "regular" Xbox 360 wireless controllers for players 2-4.

Or you can get a wired controller for $34 and skip all the battery stuff.

I guess that's kind of expensive, but they Just Work^tm so you don't have to keep messing around with them or replacing them.

Easiest thing to do would be to buy a wired 360 controller.

The game works perfectly with the 360 controller, no setup required.

If you go the wireless route you do need to purchase a wireless receiver. I bought a cheap knock-off receiver (was a lot cheaper than the official one) but windows doesn't automatically detect it as a 360 controller wireless receiver. You have to do the whole device manager dance to get the correct driver loaded. After that it worked perfectly. I imagine the official wireless receiver will be plug-and-play with windows 10.

Love how the description is a lie.


>New: A brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging (where packaging is applicable). Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag. See the seller's listing for full details.

Also that's no where near $75 value,

Controller $38

Shell kit (You didn't even use a full shell kit either) - $8.50

So what you're saying is $31.50 is in labor? I modded three controllers in less than an hour.


TL;DR

Go rip people off elsewhere.

Edit: Maybe OP paid $18 for the combo deal on this.

This is correct. I bought these two from Amazon US:

And this cable from UK:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00EYB8KC6/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The MIDI adapter came all sticky like it was covered in glue (despite being packaged as new), which seems common in the reviews which is a bit annoying, but since it came from the US( I'm in the UK) I couldn't be bothered returning it; works perfectly!

u/ThisKidErrt · 3 pointsr/Rockband

No problem! I hope you enjoy the drum set, setting it up shouldn't be that difficult but if you need any help at all feel free to PM me.

u/OkidoShigeru · 3 pointsr/wiiu

PDP have yet to produce a controller that doesn't suck - just read reviews for controllers like this. Definitely go with the Hori option, they have almost always produced controllers that are on par with first-party offerings, if not surpassing them.

EDIT: I should probably mention that above both of those options I would still recommend using the wired GC controller adaptor that Nintendo are releasing, along with an official GC controller, as obviously I can say with 100% certainty that the controllers are comfortable and well-made. But if you have your heart set on one of the Mario-themed controllers, definitely go with Hori, I am willing to bet that it will at least be of passable quality.

u/ThatsSciencetastic · 3 pointsr/gamingnews

Yeah, I know I prefer the D-pad.

For what it's worth, it looks like this is a carbon copy of a controller by PDP that's already on the market.

u/Grondaivor · 3 pointsr/gaming

I'd recommend: Tutle Beach X12

Here are some alternatives.

Vibration Headset XT

Ear Force PX21

Tritton Trigger Headset

EDIT: I'd also like to add stick with a cheap headset for now if you intend on buying a more expensive on later. A lot of companies will tend to take advantage of the next generation and release new headsets.




u/DoopHQ · 3 pointsr/GameDeals

Are you sure it was an official one though? this one looks like an official one but it's a knockoff.


I still have 2 day one controllers that work, maybe you just got unlucky.

u/SamMee514 · 3 pointsr/GameDeals

Not silly at all! I frequent the skullgirls reddit a lot, and the general consensus is that this stick is one of the better ones out there. Although pricey, according to multiple users on the sub (I don't own it) it's very worth the investment.

u/tyler2k · 3 pointsr/Tekken

Depends what you're in the market for, cost wise. I currently have an HRAP 3 SA and a TE Round 2 but I've used pretty much everything out there by osmosis (being a part of the FGC and all).

Let me do a break down of all brands (and sticks of theirs I'd recommend) by increasing cost:

Qanba's inexpensive line is really good but overall I'm not a fan of the Q2s, stick to the Q1/4s or Eightarc Fusion line.

$79 - Qanba Q1
$149 - Qanba Q4 (price direct from Eightarc)
$184 - Eightarc Fusion - Dual mod (price direct from Eightarc)

Hori is a great brand because they tend to take more risks, unfortunately they're also one of the more expensive brands.

$149 - HRAP V4SA (looks like a refresh of their incredible V3SA line for PS4)
[$199 - Hori Fighting Edge] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008OP422U/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B008OP422U&linkCode=as2&tag=tylersfightga-20&linkId=YDHUDOKOY242R3UP)

It's possible to find the HRAP 3 SAs still, like I have, but they're really old school in their size. Namely it's a pretty bulky stick and it's not really designed to played on a normal sized person's lap (usually on the ground, OG status, or on a table). The HRAP V3SA is really good, but with the price of the V4SA, I'd pre-order that instead. In my experience, stay away from the N3-SA, good reviews but I've personally heard nothing but headache.

Madcatz is a mixed bag, I haven't tried their latest TE2s but the line before the TE2 wasn't super great, but maybe it's because I'm used to heavier sticks.

$99 - Fightstick Pro (just be aware this is plastic body)
$?? - TE Round 2

That's pretty much it for the Madcatz camp, the TE Round 2 is really their only stick currently worth mentioning and it looks like it's hard to find nowadays. If you could find one in good shape for about $100, it'd probably be worth picking up.

Also obviously these are the bigger names out there. My friend has a custom stick and I've used a couple that work fine. Just be aware that custom sticks come with custom costs, but the good news is that you'd be able to fully pick your components.

Looking at all the brands together, I'd recommend (by increasing cost):

$79 - Qanba Q1
$99 - Fightstick Pro (just be aware this is plastic body)
$149 - HRAP V4SA (looks like a refresh of their incredible V3SA line for PS4)
$184 - Eightarc Fusion - Dual mod (price direct from Eightarc)

Hope this helps

u/Yjan · 3 pointsr/xbox360

Had the same problem. Posted about it here.

It appears we must purchase a HD to fit into the empty port on the 360 (under the grating at the bottom of the console). I have my eye on this drive but am awaiting confirmation that it will work.

Good luck, brother.

u/IncaDragon · 3 pointsr/xbox360

I bought a 320GB HDD for my 360S in 2012 for like $80 on Amazon. They should be cheaper by now if they still produce them.

You should be fine if it is compatible with the 360 HDD slot. The system will then format it to be used on the console.

Oh, and before I forget, the 4GB on the xbox is built in so there is no removing it. You just have multiple save devices. I have three: 4GB built in, 320GB installed in the slot and 500MB cloud storage which I haven't used yet. Hope this helps!

Here is a 250GB for less than $40 http://www.amazon.com/250GB-Internal-Drive-Xbox360-Games/dp/B008TP1OKI/ref=pd_sim_vg_5?ie=UTF8&refRID=0NGHDAJDR2ZJWF6H2BRF

Afterglow Universal Wireless Headset. You can use it with your Xbox, or any other console that you may own (even your phone). I have one and it's amazing. It comes with three different sound qualities (normal, bass boost, simulated 3D sound). The simulated 3D sound is particularly amazing. For the price point that it is, it's more than worth it.

u/CroissanwichDiarrhea · 3 pointsr/PS4

Exactly this. I've been conflicted for a while, like OP, but realized that while XBONE exclusives are okay now, PS4 is about to blow them out of the water with their future lineup. I'm also much more invested in platinum trophies than 1,000 Achievement Points (stupid, I know). My XBONE is literally collecting dust at the moment because I'm much more of a PS guy, no matter how much I try other things.

OP, you can also easily order XBONE Thumbsticks from this Amazon seller and use this video to replace the PS4 thumbsticks for the best of both worlds. I did this after losing the rubber on my original sticks and am really happy with the results.

Black wireless is 44% off, Silver Charge and Play is only 31% off. Its actually 99 cents cheaper to order the black controller and a separate charge and play adapter (http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Black-Play-Charge-Kit/dp/B000OYMYZQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1332195429&sr=1-1) if you want it. Not that 99 cents is much but I would rather have a black controller then that fugly silver.

u/Lupus_nord · 2 pointsr/AskGames

If you mean the Charge Kit for the Wireless Controller I have tried using that with a PC and I have never had any luck. If you find a game that does not support a controller you can use This software to map each button to its keyboard and mouse counterparts.

This is what you want, you have to use a corded controller (not a plug and play controller either), but, it works great, I've used it on my Gen1 PS3 and I use it on my new ps3. Def a great buy if you like the Xbox controller!

You need an active converter for that to work, you are better off buying the official Xbox 360 cable that goes directly to VGA. That will work better and be cheaper than a converter.

u/TemptCiderFan · 2 pointsr/gaming

The PDP Afterglow is a solid bet. It's a cabled Xbox 360 controller that I personally find to have better ergonomics than the traditional 360 controller. D-pad on it is a damned sight better than the regular Xbox 360 controller's as well.

The Hori Gempad is another cheap option, and I can personally attest that the D-pad on the controller is fantastic for 2D fighters like SFV or Arc System Works games.

That said, corded official Xbox 360 controllers are like $15-$20 on Amazon. They're fine for 3D games but the D-pad is garbage.

u/brintnall12 · 2 pointsr/ShouldIbuythisgame

I only have one controller and it's this. I would play with the controller and my girlfriend would play with the keyboard. But, I know you can play with all controllers because when you play local co-op you have to go into a menu and choose which player uses which controller.

u/Allisonaxe · 2 pointsr/Steam

what MrJDMTyte said is true: most pc games released today will have 360 controller support. Third party 360 controllers work too. I personally use one of these because its about as good as a stock 360 controller (better in some ways actually: the dpad is nicer) and also its probably one of the cheapest xbox specific controllers you can find. the light is annoying but it does turn off.

u/archontruth · 2 pointsr/ffxiv

I use an X-Box 360 controller, and have no problem with the d-pad. It works very well, and since it's a Microsoft product, the drivers download automatically, it's plug(-configure)-and-play. Just make sure you get one with a USB connector, like the Afterglow

A quick google search tells me that it's possible to use a PlayStation controller with a PC, but I don't know how well that works. I got myself a Xbox 360 controller for PC (it's an ordinary wired Xbox 360 controller with a USB adapter) so I could better play certain games on my PC, and as someone who grew up playing PS1 and PS2 along with a little PS3 I think it works excellently.

Just curious, why are you building a gaming PC if you would rather play on a console?

u/EChondo · 2 pointsr/pcgaming

This it?

You could always buy a wired Xbox 360 controller.

*Edit, Nevermind, I read the reviews. You would think they would get rid of the "Microsoft" link under the title. Well it looks like your only alternative is getting a wired controller or a knock off, sorry mate. I can't find anything official, unless you want to go find one used.

u/BreatheLife · 2 pointsr/gaming
u/nanowerx · 2 pointsr/battlefield3

Basically a wireless 360 or PS3 controller needs some sort of wireless receiver connected to your PC to work. The wired 360 ones are plug and play, however.

Your best bet is to suck it up and get a wired 360 controller as that and the wireless receiver are pretty close in price, and you would have an extra controller.

u/Pufflekun · 2 pointsr/gaming

If you don't already have one, I recommend picking up a 360 controller for $29 on Amazon.

There's a couple more types of controllers but these are the main ones. Hope this helps!

u/magicpostit · 2 pointsr/gaming

I bought it back in 2006 and it played fairly well with just mouse+keyboard. Fast forward to last week, when I finally buy a wired xbox 360 controller, and it's so much better.

So, it does support controllers, and do yourself a favor (if you're on a pc) and pick up one of these: http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Wired-Controller-Black/dp/B003ZSN600/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1324565176&sr=8-1

Best PC gamepad I've ever tried, unfortunately, if you're on an Apple with the most up-to-date OS (I have a 4-year old Macbook, it's my portable SMB/Braid/Machinarium machine) finding a driver that will make it work is a pain in the ass. Tattiebogie does not work.

Also, it's cheaper to buy it on Steam and get a wired controller than any of the copies I've seen for sale for Xbox. And you now have a controller for any other platformers you may have.

u/UnworthyPie · 2 pointsr/gaming

The Wired Xbox Controllers are in my opinion the best you can get.
They're the best for any RPG or FPS. This is all coming from a bias point of view because before I was PC gaming I was an Xbox gamer.
As for the price I don't see how $30 is much of a problem. I am aware that there are various MadCatz controllers that are dirt cheap but of course you are then sacrificing quality.
However if we're talking about simulation or sport games that is not my Forté so I can't help you out too much there.

u/squidthesid · 2 pointsr/gaming

The Razer Onza and the official first party Microsoft Xbox360 wired controllers are the best ones you can go with. Nearly every game that supports a gamepad supports a 360 controller and its keys.

u/darkstar3333 · 2 pointsr/gaming

You can find them packaged at places like Amazon or BestBuy under Xbox Controller for Windows.

There are wired variations but the USB adapter lets you use 4 standard 360 controllers at the same time.

If you have a PS3 there are some 3rd party applications you can install that allows you to use that controller.

u/FoxxyRin · 2 pointsr/gaming

Just get a USB 360 controller? My boyfriend and I used a MadCatz until he finally broke it from spin-sticking way too hard. We have the official Microsoft one now, and it's super high quality feeling and stuff.

As for customization, I'm pretty sure you can map the keys however you want so long as the game you're playing allows it. If it doesn't allow it, look into software like Xpadder, which allows you to set any button as any key/key combination on your keyboard.

EDIT: Also, a LOT of controller compatible games (4/5, maybe?) have a default Xbox layout, making Xbox 360 controllers instantly compatible with the game.

How it goes with the xbox 360 controllers, is that there is only two ways of connecting to the PC:

1.) Directly connected with a controller with the cable built in, not any of the controllers with batteries or battery packs. The Play and Charge cable is only for charging your controller(s)' and/or playing directly connected to a xbox360. But not supported for PC play.

2.) A specific wireless dongle that will allow your wireless controllers to connect wirelessly to your computer.

The links are only to Amazon, and there will definitely be better deals to be found. Hopefully this helps out.
Good Luck, Have Fun.

u/ZodeNine · 2 pointsr/DIY

Well, my understanding is you currently can use an xbox controller, so I just wanted to toss it out there ( because it might fit your needs and is pretty cheap) that you can buy a wired xbox controller and use it for PC gaming.

Here is the support article for setup, and here are links for the controllers themselves from Best Buy, GameStop, and Amazon. As I recall (a friend of mine has a similar setup for her pc gaming) you fine-tune the controls through the individual game settings.


If that wouldn't work for you, or if you think a customized keyboard would be better, I hope someone can provide some help. (The potential driver patching for such a project is probably above my own abilities)

u/ZapActions-dower · 2 pointsr/GirlGamers

If you like the Xbox controller, there are three easily solutions for you, by increasing price:

http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Xbox-360-Wired-Controller/dp/B003ZSN600

http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Xbox-Wireless-Controller-Windows/dp/B004QRKWKQ

http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-One-Wireless-Controller/dp/B00CMQTUSS

I use the middle option, as I prefer not having any more cables than necessary, plus any Xbox 360 controller can connect to the wireless dongle, meaning you can buy extra, new model controllers (not Xbox One) or use any controllers you can borrow. The Xbox One controller must remain plugged in via Micro-USB (included,) and the wired Xbox 360 controller obviously is wired. Microsoft has released drivers for all three and they should install automatically. For right now, there is no way to connect an Xbox One controller wirelessly.

For PS3, you will have to find a driver package. I used motioninjoy so I could use my PS3 controller for emulating SNES games, but it messed up other drivers and I ended up uninstalling it and using my 360 controller exclusively. Once the drivers are installed, you can use a Bluetooth dongle to connect the PS3 controller to the PC wirelessly.

A PS4 controller can also be used via Bluetooth, but requires DS4Tool which maps the buttons on the DS4 controller to their corresponding Xbox 360 buttons.

It turns out that the wired 360 controller is just standard USB, and (obviously) has native drivers that work well.

u/reddit_is_cruel · 2 pointsr/gaming

On PC the same button on the same controller will start Steam in Big Screen mode.

u/sfrazer · 2 pointsr/gaming

A wired xbox 360 controller should be about $10-$15 cheaper than the Logitech you listed. It's the correct answer.

u/BrianAllred · 2 pointsr/Lubbock

Xbox 360 Wired Controller works flawlessly for everything. Bought this without even owning a 360. Other third-party (and cheaper) controller certified for the 360 should work similarly well. My buddy has a cheaper Mad Catz one that works. It just uses a different driver, but Windows 7 should be able to find it automatically. Only hassle is having to separately set up the controller profiles for different games/emulators.

u/I_WANT_PRIVACY · 2 pointsr/gaming

You can just buy a wired Xbox 360 controller from Microsoft.

You can get one off Newegg or Amazon for around that cheap. Both wired and wireless are around the same price, and they go on sale quite often. I bought one not long ago for $18.99 off Newegg.

u/MrFluffyThing · 2 pointsr/pcgaming

I know it's not the same for those who prefer the PS3 controller, but the Xbox 360 controller is plug-and-play with Windows 7/8, and is generally cheaper(Goes on sale a LOT) if you don't already own one.

u/DiabolicallyRandom · 2 pointsr/Borderlands

Correction: It is not a bluetooth device. There are USB adapters, however, to connect wireless 360 controllers to a PC. At retail, they are only available packaged with a controller - however, they can be found on EBay without the included controller. You can also sometimes find on amazon just the receiver.

I just picked up a set on amazon earlier this week for 39.99 on sale, complete with controller. Newegg also had a deal yesterday for the same.

The package you would look for is here: http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Xbox-Wireless-Controller-Windows/dp/B004QRKWKQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1348240766&sr=8-1&keywords=xbox+controller+pc

Or, just the adapter: http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Wireless-Gaming-Receiver-Windows/dp/B000HZFCT2/ref=pd_cp_vg_0

Otherwise, you can just use a "wired" 360 controller, here: http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Wired-Controller-Black/dp/B003ZSN600/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1348240793&sr=1-1&keywords=xbox+controller+wired

Finally, note that a "play and charge" cable does not allow you to connect to the PC. it must be a real, native, wired controller, or you must have the windows wireless adapter.

As for keyboard try this and since you're using Big Picture Mode use an Xbox Controller

u/Amatsuo · 2 pointsr/xboxone

Yeah that is what I am hoping to stay away from. If I cant find a good XBOne controller, then I might just have to break open the wallet for This along with a Chronos stick.

u/Craquehead · 2 pointsr/pcgaming

> I've seen several games where it's as simple as clicking on "use xbox 360 controller", so I thought I would just do that.

Not only do many games support it "out of the box", requiring no setup or re-mapping, they will often change the UI for you, showing button prompts correctly with the icons for the 360 controls. This is why I normally recommend the 360 controller over the PS3 controller.

360 controller also works natively with Steam's big picture mode.

That said, don't get a off brand. they're terrible. I guess you could save a couple bucks and get one used, but, eww. The real deal is 34$ on Amazon right now.

PDP is releasing a Wired Legacy Adapter, which will let you use your e-kit with Rock Band 4!

You'll go from your drums -> Midi PRO-Adapter -> PDP Wired Legacy Adapter -> Xbox One.

It goes both ways. With this nifty little unit you can use any "real" electronic midi drumset as rockband drums.

u/VinTheRighteous · 2 pointsr/Games

If you want to get really out there, you can technically buy any electric drum kit and plug it in to this to play pro drums.

I used it for some time, and while my e-drum kit wasn't the best, the adapter worked great.

You'll still have to make your guitar midi capable, which is kind of expensive to do. But you can use any guitar if you're willing.

I have one and for the price it's fucking awesome and let's you use your actual set. As for guitar, Les Paul from GH3 is the best but it's hard to find a good one for cheap. I'd recommend creeping on craigslist as sometimes people will sell them without the intention of screwing you over.

u/DaIronchef · 2 pointsr/MvC3

I basically roll from forward to down and have kind've trained where the diagonal is to execute. I probably have a 95% hit rate (I've beaten Haggar, Morrigan, and Chris Missions with the analog).

The big thing I like about it compared with the PS3 pad is that you feel an "edge". On the pad if I were to hold a diagonal I can't really tell if I'm holding the forward and down. That being said I have a hard time hitting diagonals on a stick, but it's more the comfort of being able to roll the edge.

This "pad" would seem ideal for people like me. I got to feel one at the store and it's actually an analog stick with switches on the side for precision, so it "clicks" when you hit a direction. While it seems awesome, reviews are that it breaks easy =/ Maybe someday someone will get it right.

u/p0wderedtoastman · 2 pointsr/MvC3

Why not try out a fightpad? You won't have to re-learn how to use your controller, and they are very durable!

u/jca27610 · 2 pointsr/CodAW
u/drfoqui · 2 pointsr/Borderlands

I think you should at least give it a shot. As much as it can be frustrating because you don't have control over what other people do and they may take loot you want, etc., the game is also designed to be played in coop so there are a lot of cool things you will not experience if you only play solo, mainly in terms of the interactions and synergies between the different Vault Hunters' skills.

Like I said in a response below, the best way to do it is with friends but if that's not possible, be patient and consistently stay away from people who play like assholes (leave the game or kick them out of yours) and add nice people to your friend list in order to keep playing with them in the future. This has resulted in a lot of really satisfactory gameplay for me in BL2. Also, this subreddit can be a good resource to find cool people to play with.

Finally, as much as many people are ok with playing with you if you don't have a mic, it is something that really enhances the experience so maybe you could consider investing in one. You don't need to spend $100, there are more budget friendly options like this one or this one that some people will hate on but they work perfectly fine if you adjust your expectations to the amount of money you're spending and they will last if you treat them with care. Even this is an interesting option if you're on Xbox and I'm sure there's similar alternatives for other systems.

They're amazing. You can adjust the game and chat sound with the headset. The sound is so much better, especially for fps and adventure games. You hear every little detail and you can properly feel the tone of the game. You can also put the tv on mute and listen solely through the headset if you need silence in the house for some reason. The best part is that it's $40 so it's not hurting your pockets too much.

There are better quality ones out, but it's great if you're like me and just want a headset that plays the game audio with chat features for cheap.

Those have excellent d-pads when they're raised, and I believe the "transforming d-pad" gimmick was a ruse by Microsoft to circumvent the d-pad patent. I've never found a situation where you'd want the less accurate d-pad mode. ;)

u/tr1ppn · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I have a bunch of items listed as highest priority. It was a guitar up until I bought one for myself at guitar center. Now I need things like a stand, picks, a strap, etc.

My highest priority item is probably this toolkit which has been on my WL since I joined RAOA. I have no idea why I still haven't just gotten it for myself considering I could have many times over. We have basically no tools in our apartment, so I'm even more useless than normal when it comes to fixing things.

I REALLY need a new 360 controller. I may or may not have shattered mine a while back, and I'm currently playing with it held together by tape, and sometimes a button or two doesn't work. It's really frustrating.

I also have GT6 listed as highest, because it is honestly my favorite gaming franchise of all time, and I love every one of the GT games.

This thing is listed as highest because I would really like to listen to my own music in the car, but don't have an aux cable. I can get one, but I need a special part (because my car stereo is set up REALLY stupid), and it's $120 and comes from the UK. That item is listed as highest priority too, but it's not on amazon.

By the way, you are awesome :D :D

u/Antabaka · 2 pointsr/gaming

Yes, as opposed to that. That is an Xbox controller that is both wired and wireless, but would not work with an adapter like that.

u/Big_Metal_Unit · 2 pointsr/dragonage

If money isn't a problem, I'm happy with this setup though it's a bit more expensive than is necessary:

  • 360 rechargable controller with transforming D-pad
  • Wireless connecter for PC (needed if you go with a wireless controller)
  • Squidgrip (comfort)

    The more expensive "play and charge" version doesn't require swapping batteries, you just plug it in to recharge (where it becomes a regular Wired controller so you can still use it), and that's worth the extra $20 to me. The squid-grips, when applied properly, make holding the controller more comfortable.

Microsoft-branded wireless adapters require almost zero setup on Win 7+. Plug it in, give it a few seconds to find/install the hardware, sync controller, done. (and then you're ready to add up to 3 more controllers, easy peasy)

EDIT: If you're going with wired, get the Xbox One controller. Plugs in with the included microUSB charging cable, detects instantly, bam.

u/the_masked_cabana · 2 pointsr/nes

I never liked the original dpad on the 360 controller. It pretty much ruined fighting games on the Xbox for me. I've always found the best way to test a dpad on an emulator is to boot up Contra and try and hold right/down so your character runs to the right while aiming diagonally down in front of him. If he lays down or just runs to the right, the controller isn't going to work. If you're looking for another Xbox controller you could spend another $40-$50 on an 8-way dpad. I recommend a dualshock 3 (Sony) controller if you have one, as the dpad is far more responsive.

u/delightfulmistake · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I can only recommend what I've used. You might ask some others for opinions.

I have a previous version of these:

They sound great and have excellent range, nearly my whole house. The charge lasts around 6-8 hours. The only drawback is the huge USB dongle. If I use them with my laptop, I always bring a short USB extension cable (right angle upward) so as not to accidentally apply force to the dongle sticking out the side and snap it off.

After that it's two unplugs of ribbon cables, lifting battery, one more PH00 screw, lift board, remove sticks, install new sticks, then reverse process.

Swapped out all my ds4 sticks for Xbox one sticks, and waiting on 2 2000 mAh batteries from Hong Kong to replace the stock batteries. Gonna be sweet.

In case you want to swap them: http://www.amazon.com/2-Pack-Controller-Analog-Sticks-Dualshock-OneSoul/dp/B00IZSTNKW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1420309966&sr=8-1&keywords=xbox+one+thumbsticks

Getting the touchpad to work with Skyrim is actually really easy. You can use http://www.DS4Windows.com to remap the touchpad to various keyboard inputs. Then I used this mod to change the button mapping to where all of my favorites are on the Dpad with the left bumper as a modifier so you get all 8 favorites accessable. After that, you follow the direction on the mod you linked to allow the keyboard and controller to be usable at the same time. You can't use both mods at the same time because they both edit the same file so you'll need to take the first mod and edit its file with the directions on the second mods page.

What I ended up with is all 8 favorites on the Dpad and I bound the various swipes/actions on the touchpad to keyboard commands.

  • Swipe Up - Perks
  • Swipe Down - Map
  • Swipe Left - Magic
  • Swipe Right - Inventory
  • Left side press - Realistic Needs and Disease status
  • Right Side Press - Frostfall menu
  • Top Press - Weathersense
  • Two finger press - Quicksave(I use this mod for better quick saves)

    After that, I set DS4Windows to use the PS button as a modifier key adding even more buttons to the controller.

  • Swipe Up - Drink from streams
  • Swipe Down - Turn Wearable Lanterns on/off
  • Swipe Left - Skyrim Tycoon Influence
  • Swipe Right - Skyrim Tycoon Supply
  • Left Press - Wearable Lantern Fuel
  • X - ENB Screenshot
  • Square - Uses a macro to open console, Toggle the menus and free cam
  • Triangle - Same as square but pauses the game world with TFC 1
  • Circle - Turns my ENB on and off.

    Works perfectly! The only thing you really have to do is when you are rebinding keys in the DS4Windows program is make sure that the 'Scan Code' box is checked otherwise they don't work in the game for some reason. Also, when you are binding keyboard keys ingame to various mods, your controller still has to be off otherwise the game doesn't pick them up.

    The versatility of the touchpad alone makes the DS4 hands down waaaaay better than the XB1 controller. The only thing I'm missing now is a mod to change all the buttons in SkyUI to the PS4 buttons. The mod on the workshop unfortunately doesn't work anymore. That or a mod for the controller itself to change the buttons to Xbox buttons since I don't use my PS4 all that much.

    Also, I suggest modding your PS4 controller to use Xbox One thumbsticks. They are by far superior and it is actually really easy to do. Both controllers get their thumbsticks from the same manufacturer so they are interchangeable. Here are the thumbsticks I bought off Amazon. And here is a really awesome video showing you how easy it is to do.

    Good luck buddy! If you have any questions feel free to ask and I'll do what I can to help!

I ordered these!

Then took the controller apart and then it's just a matter of taking the sticks off and putting the Xbox Ones on! There's several guides on YouTube for how to take apart a ps4 controller and it's a pretty easy process, so if you want to give them a try you should have no trouble!

Take a look at the Logitech Z323.

Looks like that will do exactly what you're looking for.

I believe you have to use this VGA cord though with your xbox to accomplish what you're trying to do though.

u/Veritas413 · 1 pointr/techsupport

If you're trying to hook a 360 to a computer monitor, there's the Xbox 360 VGA Cable.

You'll need an adapter for audio, RCA to 1/8" female if you want to plug in computer speakers.

I can give you more information if this is the right track.

u/LiL_BrOwNiE247 · 1 pointr/techsupport

I asked my friend about this setup (he has a similar setup of his own) and said to get this cable instead. He said that the cheaper cables may get the job done but they end up having issues with ghosting, whereas if you spring the $36 for the Microsoft one you shouldn't have any issues.

Either way, thanks for the help.

u/BionicJuice · 1 pointr/gaming

u/FallenWyvern · 1 pointr/gaming

If you're trying to record the xbox on your PC, you may also consider either a video capture card and this cable : http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-VGA-HD-AV-Cable/dp/B000B6MLTG

That would let you hook the xbox to your PC. Then use that to record everything.

u/Rakielis · 1 pointr/xbox360

get one of these

http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-VGA-HD-AV-Cable/dp/B000B6MLTG

and a monitor that has a VGA input and last, youll need to hook up speakers some how.

i recommend getting a full 1080p monitor as it looks great to play xbox on a large screen sitting that close. i have a similar set up with a 27". i sit just 2 feet away. its awesome and get good speakers!

and be sure to check out /r/battlestations

u/Manodactyl · 1 pointr/techsupport

one of these and one of these That should do it.

u/Guest101010 · 1 pointr/xbox360

I'm guessing you're using a HDMI/DVI converter, which of course won't carry sound.

I'm afraid that, unlike with the PS3, there is no way to output audio through a different cable than you're outputting video (unless you count the optical audio out, which doesn't exist on an HDMI cable).

The good news? You can use this cable with your monitor. Don't be fooled by the HDMI nonsense; VGA will be just as good as HDMI!

u/famousjoshua · 1 pointr/Gaming4Gamers

You can get a VGA out for an Xbox 360.

http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-VGA-HD-AV-Cable/dp/B000B6MLTG/ref=pd_sxp_grid_pt_1_1

Then a simple DVI converter if your display doesn't have a VGA input.

I used one of these and it worked great. Xbox will actually output to your displays native resolution too.

I just got this cat tree for my cats. They love it! I think it's of a pretty good quality, and if they rip it up at all, I can fix it quite cheaply and easily.

You seem to have very similar tastes in video games as me, so I would recommend either the Mass Effect Series or Rune Factory 4. I haven't played Rune Factory 4, but I've loved the other games in the series and I think you might also really enjoy it!

I'm indecisive, too, so I'll probably end up buying myself a ton of games & movies once I'm back home

I used to have this thing for charging the removable battery packs, and this for when I wanted to play while I charged. Are you talking about those pads where put the whole controller on it, like this Nyko thing?

u/msthe_student · 1 pointr/xbox

For Windows support you'll want the wireless variant with Windows in the name, as the non-"Windows" variant doesn't include the dongle. The dongle works plug-and-play with Windows 7 (IIRC, or 8.x+). The dongle can also be bought separately. You might also want the Play-and-charge kit.

u/bob101910 · 1 pointr/gaming

They can release it for free. They would have to remove achievements though. Several games break the rules and release DLC for free with achievements.

There are rechargable batteries that are not 3rd party. These are just the black ones, but they do have white also (maybe more). Both come with rechargable batteries. http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Quick-Charger-Kit/dp/B0041CWZEM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1311452674&sr=8-1

I personally like the quick charger. Get 2 rechargable batteries then you can alternate between the 2.

The console life is only halfway over. It's already longer than any previous console EVER! 6 years now and 6 more to go! No reason to make a new one if the current one's sales keep going up from previous years.

u/ultimatt42 · 1 pointr/Stadia

I'm going to save someone some grief here and point out that the "specific adapter for 360 controllers to allow them to talk via USB" is the Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows. This will let you connect up to 4 wireless Xbox 360 controllers. It's only officially supported on Windows, but you can use it on Mac and Linux as well.

DO NOT BUY the poorly named Xbox 360 Play and Charge Kit. As much as it seems like it should work, it DOES NOT allow you to use wireless controllers over USB. The cable only sends power, no data.

I'm glad more people know about this, I don't use Playstation controllers but the issue is the same with Xbox One controllers as well and a few 360 controllers. I don't play Rocket League either haha, I actually found about the issue when playing GTA V on PC, and I noticed that I could spin faster on a bike after switching from my Xbox One controller to my 360 controller. If anyone has any information on how to edit the settings for the Xbox One controller to make the range higher I'd really appreciate, because my only option is to use other controllers.

Anyways hopefully I can help you guys out a bit who are looking for a better controller, I've bought both of these 360 controllers and I've noticed the range of motion is a lot higher than the PS4/XB1 controllers. For some reason it seems like 3rd party controllers have a higher range of motion.

The Afterglow Controller I have has a higher range than the Madcatz controller but the Madcatz controller is still pretty high. Also keep in mind I've had the Afterglow for about 5 years now, so I doubt they would have made any design changes to mess with the range but it's always possible.

One more thing, I don't really expect an answer from this but does anyone know anything about this controller? I've been wondering how the range is compared to the original Xbox One controller.

I don't know about Playstation controllers, but I use a 3rd party Xbox 360 controller that works well:

https://www.amazon.com/Afterglow-AX-1-Controller-Xbox-360-Blue/dp/B003ITY98O

If you prefer the feel of the Xbox one controller, they make it as well:

I personally like the Afterglow controllers because they're well built, proportioned correctly, and feel good in the hands. Also, the annoying glow effect can be disabled...there's a button on the back side that changes modes from on constantly, flashing /w rumble, or off completely.

u/FlyingRock · 1 pointr/Games

I play both console and PC, there's serious positives and negatives to both but I want to set a few things straight.

controllers, keep in mind this is the equivalent of buying a mouse and keyboard for PC gaming and Alot of PC gamers own $50+ mice/keyboards.

Yes first party Wireless controllers are $50 new, but they're usually on sale for $40 or less wired are $40 new but again usually on sale, I got mine a few months ago for $25

Also there's some decent enough third party controllers that cost less such as afterglow And some that cost a little more This is Xbox prices mind you, they're the more expensive of the two and there's considerably less third party support on the Xbox

Headsets

The best (in my opinion) mono set for the Xbox is $10 But usable ones are as cheap as [$5] (http://www.amazon.com/KMD-Xbox-360-Live-Gaming-Headset/dp/B003A71XKQ/ref=pd_cp_e_0). Stereo headsets cost a bit more at $30 and up but thats the same on the PC too.

Also console games drop in price relatively quickly with one exception, the COD series.

Otherwise I agree with you.

u/clarque_ · 1 pointr/Gaming4Gamers

I own an Afterglow for Xbox 360. It's a pretty good controller, but I don't like the fact that it's smooth plastic. I get sweaty palms when I game a lot and that makes for a slippery controller.

Now I'm using a Steam Controller for all of my PC gaming. I like it, but it definitely took some getting used to.

I'd recommend just buying a wired brand name controller. Everything is plug and play these days, so you'll have no problem setting it up.

You do have to manually install the drivers though, so you have to download the regular Xbox controller drivers,

then go into devices on control panel, select the controller, find drivers, then manually find drivers, then you can select from a list of installed drivers (which the Xbox drivers should be included in).

The controller feels like a normal Xbox controller, which is what I'm used to, so I approve.

Xbox 360 wireless controllers don't work that way. The USB port on them are strictly for charging, and not for linking to a console/PC. (Yeah, pretty dumb.) To get a X360 controller to work on PC you need either a real wired controller, or buy the wireless dongle for your PC.

You just need a wired XBox360 controller.

Check GameStop. I found a used one for $20.

Google: [XBox360 controller driver] once you have it... You are good to go. Many games recognize the controller and even give you tutorials using the gamepad layout. (Dungeon Defenders, On Live games, and more.)

For everything else, get Xpadder (old version free - newest version ~$15) ... you can map any buttons to your gamepad. Really useful for flash games.

u/CosmicEngender · 1 pointr/gaming

Personally I thought they were great. Even though I have a 360 controller, I prefer keyboard + mouse for first-person games. Normally I wouldn't think of playing a platformer without a controller, but I found the default controls on PC to work perfectly and I never had a problem with them. That being said, according to this article you can use a 360 controller with the game. Since you have a PS3 I'm not sure you have a 360 controller lying around but if not I heartily recommend picking one up. If you play a lot of PC games, it's the best $30 you'll ever spend.

u/Dmystic · 1 pointr/gaming

Joysticks are actually very responsive.

You get all the same customization options you would have now.
And I've never seen a FPS game that didn't allow you to adjust sensitivity.
The key downside of the Pad is you have less buttons than the keyboard. Usually in an FPS game this means you can't directly select your weapon(like using 1-9 on keyboard)

Honestly the only way to see if you like it is to try it out for yourself.

I recommend getting a 360(wired) pad

Amazon has em cheap it's 30 -40 dollars which shouldn't break your bank too badly and will let you get a feel for pad without the money investment.

the 360 Wired pads work with PC directly(all you need is a driver) and are fairly high quality (except the DPAD) for a relatively low cost.

This is what I use and it works lovely. It's not third party, so you have that. It works with every game I've tried it on. I use it for platformers and racing games. You mentioned Assassin's Creed which I use it for quite a bit, but you also mentioned cod and BF3. Cod and BF3 shouldn't be used. You won't have a very good response time or accuracy. Chances are you will get trashed by KBM setups on those games.

Played Shank, Beat Hazard, Bastion, Jamestown, etc., controller works great, and was autodetected every time.

u/Aemulus · 1 pointr/gamingpc

Ordered this one right here. Thanks for the confirmations, guys. :)

u/gankless · 1 pointr/gaming

I got one this morning here for $15.99. They're out of stock now, and the price has gone up, but you can get some good deals on official Microsoft controllers from Amazon if you're willing to go wired.

u/DJGMac · 1 pointr/xbox360
  1. the screw driver to open the controller, most likely will only be available in a kit: Which can cost from anywhere from $10-$25

  2. The recplacement bumper can be ordered online+ shipping is probably another $5-$10

  3. If you unexperienced with opening technology its going to take another 30 min-1hr of your time (Give or take $5-$10 of minimum wage time depending where you live I guess)

    So that rings up anywhere from $20-$45 (Approximately of course) in Total.


    OR


    You could just buy a new controller and save yourself the time...

No problem man, if you remember the ocean marketing debacle it had to do with the company that ran PR for the Avenger controller. Nothing to do with the Avenger company though.

Found a link for an adapter that should let you use an Xbox controller for ps3

You will have to get a corded 360 controller found here

u/AdmiralSkippy · 1 pointr/gaming

I do but that doesn't matter since here's Amazon.com which gives me American pricing (amazon.ca gives Canadian). The controller is $37 on sale from $50. There's some that are less than $30 but they're all on sale. Regular price they're no less than $40 unless you're looking at off brand controllers which are $30 regular price.

u/DTMaster · 1 pointr/GameDeals

I think the better deal is the silver one with charge and play. Here.

u/TankorSmash · 1 pointr/GameDeals

I've had mine since launch, don't use it whatsoever. I plug in my 360 controller to my PC, and I don't use my Steamlink because a) I don't need it at all and b) the minor delay is unbearable for me.

If you don't have a x360 controller, you can get one for 30$ on amazon, but you lose the configuration options you'd get with Steam and it's not wireless.

CPU

The basic standard for a higher end gaming pc these days is a modern i5. Intel’s i5-4440 is the base i5 of their latest CPU release, and will perform excellently.

MOTHERBOARD

Gigabyte makes quality pc parts and this mother board has a modern chip set, onboard USB 3.0 headers and six sata 6 Gb/s ports. Besides the sata 6 ports this motherboard isn’t that feature rich, but it is more affordable board and you will be unlikely to use those extra features anyway.

RAM

A basic set of 1 x 8GB RAM stick. Nothing to fancy but it should do the job well.

SSD

Once you experience a SSD you just can’t bring yourself to continue to let others suffer. The Curial MX100 is a well-reviewed modern SSD that has very good performance. It will make your boot up times super-fast, your OS will feel snappier and anything installed on it will open so much quicker.

HDD

1TB should be plenty of space for a good amount of games. But if you find it is not enough, you will have three open sata 6 ports for plenty of expandability.

GPU

The R9 290 is the best high end “bang for your buck” card right now. Now you could go with a cheaper R9 290 but it might not have as nice of a cooler on it. Sapphire makes some of the best coolers for AMD cards and should perform great while staying cool and silent.

CASE

Corsair knows how to make a good case and the 200R is a great case at a great price.

PSU

A well trusted power supply that will be enough to power the thirsty R9 290, plus as an added bonus, it is semi modular!

Optical Drive

Technically it is entirely possible to go without a disk drive now a days, but I think they are nice to have.

OS

I understand that you already have access to an OS so I did not include it in the price.

Monitor

For 1080p 23” really seems to be the sweet spot, big enough you can see it easily, but small enough that the pixel density isn't to noticeable. One thing to note is that this monitor doesn't have built in speakers, so you would have to use the headphones to hear any audio coming from your pc.

Keyboard

More of a basic keyboard but it is decent (especially for its price)

Headphones

A solid pair of head phones with a balanced sound signature. They should do well for music and games.


Additional thoughts

The only thing I would really consider "missing" is speakers and some sort of game controller. I especially recommend a game controller if you plan on playing either of the dark souls games. If you happen to have a wired xbox 360 controller you can just download some software and simply plug it into a USB port. Or if you have a wireless receiver you can use wireless controllers as well. If you need speakers and a controller (at this budget) let me know and I will tweak some things. Just so you know a wired controller costs a little over $30 a wired is around $35 but the wireless reciever you will need runs around $11.

Let me know if you have any questions!

u/AndCockGoesTheGun · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

You bought this for $70? Looks like Amazon's selling them new for just under $40. Amazon Canada sells them for $45 CAD (about $32 US)

Do you still want to sell this? Considering the price you paid for it, not sure if you'd want to keep it.

u/Atom_Bomb · 1 pointr/xbox360

not really that great of a deal

  • Controller - $37.34

  • Remote - $16.50

  • HDMI Cable - $4.41

  • 3 Months Gold - $14.98

    Total Cost - $73.72

    Also I didn't look that hard but on most of those I'm sure even better deals could be found. I do see the merit in paying a little extra to get it all in one package and also have the convenience of buying from a store and avoiding the wait for shipping.

That is only counting Amazon. Lets see what the used controllers are going for at lowest 23$. And as a customer I now have virtually no reason to shop at gamestop because why waste my money when I can use Amazon who is a much better middleman than gamestop? You would go out of business because the competition is making a better offer than you. It only works for gamestop because of low customer knowledge, laziness, and a good chunk of gamers are minors. Though on occasion gamestop will have the better price or close enough to be worth the extra for convenience, but that's rare in my experience.

You don't have to believe, source here It's not as absurd as others said but it's still shows how much Gamestop relies on used games sales.

The video game market is very different from other markets.

u/CheapNuggets · 1 pointr/Rockband

Do I not need the midi adapter I keep seeing listed? It looks like it's for the 360, but I see it posted in the context of xbox one posts.

This one, specifically:

https://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Rock-Band-Midi-PRO-Adapter/dp/B00409SOD2/ref=sr_1_2?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1518733571&sr=1-2&keywords=rock%2Bband%2B4%2Bmidi&th=1

This might be what you're looking for, not sure about the compatibility on guitar hero games though.

u/Flame48 · 1 pointr/Rockband

Just wanna ask since I have no experience with any of this stuff, I would need to buy this + the midi-pro adapter for xbox360 in order to connect an actual electronic drum set to rb4 for xbox one? Or am I not understanding correctly?

u/Ruiner46 · 1 pointr/Rockband

Any legit electronic drum set will come with it's own "brain" with a MIDI output. You can then hook it up to a Rock Band MIDI adapter, the same one used for pro guitar (http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Rock-Band-Midi-PRO-Adapter/dp/B00409SOD2). I actually built an electronic drumset from used acoustic drums that I found at a pawn shop, and built a Megadrum DIY drum module for it and I have it hooked up to the rock band MIDI adapter. Works great for pro drums and is amazingly fun to play. It's still pretty expensive compared to something like the Ion. If you can piece together an electronic drumset and don't want to shell out the money for a nice brain and aren't able to build something like Megadrum, you can look for a cheaper trigger to MIDI interface to hook up your drum pads.

u/Pandos636 · 1 pointr/Rockband

I'm not on RB4 yet, so someone correct me if my info is outdated. That drum should work just fine. The connector you need is the Rockband MIDI Pro-Adapter found Here for X-box and Here for Playstation. It's pretty much impossible to find the adapter other than online. In addition you will need to purchase a short MIDI to MIDI cable as seen here (these are pretty easy to find at any music store, but you'll pay the usual 400% markup). Total cost is somewhere around $25-$45 to get you up and running.

u/oglopez · 1 pointr/GuitarHero

Whoa! Right on! Thank you! The E-Drums sounds so cool, I'm not sure I'm ready to invest on a whole separate electric kit just yet. I thought I was gonna tinker with the toy set it came with. By any chance, do you know if there are any drum triggers I can apply to an acoustic drum set that can work with the midi controller you mentioned? Or if it can even work this way? Seems a little unorthodox but I also have an acoustic set laying around.

and is this the adapter?

u/fork_paper_plate · 1 pointr/Rockband

for the xbox 360 you can find a ion drum rocker brain on ebay

it would take the input from the intruments like a brain and convert it to an xbox 360 controller.

if your drumset has a midiout then https://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Rock-Band-Midi-PRO-Adapter/dp/B00409SOD2?th=1

my drumset doesnt actually have a midiout but has a printer like cable out

but i think it requires a drum brain to work. Like most kits would need, the ion one is a brain of its own and connects directly to the pads.

as I said before i had an ion drum rocker at some point so i just used that brain for my good kit up until i started just playing phase shift on pc.

​

look at this kit btw https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07QNBZFTH/ref=dp_cr_wdg_tit_rfb

u/MrStruggleSnuggle · 1 pointr/xboxone

Yeh would be good. I assume that's what the next game will allow as well as the usual plastic instruments. They already let you plug any midi electric drum kit into the 360 (using an adapter) and use that for the pro drums, which is awesome - http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Rock-Band-Midi-PRO-Adapter/dp/B00409SOD2

u/Gamesrock22 · 1 pointr/gaming

It's a Yamaha DTXPlorer. I've had this for 5 years, and it's discontinued now. When looking for an E-Kit, be sure to get one that has MIDI out, not just USB-MIDI, for the MIDI Pro Adapter.

To get that to work, you need this and this so it only works on the Xbox One version. You can also use a second bass pedal with the stock kit if you want, though none of the current supported songs have fully charted double bass.

u/gamerkim28 · 1 pointr/MvC3

The easiest (and probably cheapest) option would be to get the new 360 controller

If you didn't know, the d-pad can actually transforms from the disc into a traditional plus d-pad. Probably your easiest and cheaper option. If you know who Fanatiq is (a pad player of MvC2 fame), he uses this pad when playing MvC3 and said that he loves it.

If all else fails, I suggest you hit up Tech Talk on SRK. I'm sure someone will have an answer for you there.

u/Zibber · 1 pointr/gaming

I have it and love it. The morphing d-pad isn't that helpful because it is still just a disk that moves the exact same as the normal controller. The main reason I wanted it was for the sticks; instead of the bumps that wear out for grip it has an entire ridge around. They don't wear out and feel much better on my thumbs.

Those worried about price; you can get it on amazon for $45.

u/cybrian · 1 pointr/gamecollecting

Unfortunately this was one of the less attractive official colors, and it was one of the few that came with the upgraded twistable d-pad. Fortunately, a $2 AliExpress shell would make it not look so bad.

I have a silver chrome one myself. Definitely not my favorite controller. I prefer my matte silver with monochrome buttons. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0041HROGG/

This is the newer model with the improved D-Pad (and the description claims improved shoulder buttons, as well).

I picked on up at an EB Games -- PDP MVC3 Fightpad Pro ($20 for a returned unit). I think the XBOX/Microsoft store also carried them, at around $35 each, wired.

http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Versus-Controller/dp/B0051MQJWU

So it's not a d-pad -- it actually has actuators to sense when the analog-like stick has gone past certain activation points (with a click) -- it's actually digital inputs.

I prefer dpads, having played on SNES controllers back on the day -- things like dashing (F,F) motions are harder on this pad, and would be easier on a dpad.

u/Goins2754 · 1 pointr/SF4

Pad recommendations?

I've tried the MadCatz fight pad when I was on PS3 and didn't really like the D-pad. I tried the XBox 360 Versus controller now that I'm on PC and I don't like the joystick on that one, either. I tried the Logitech F310, but I prefer having all 6 face buttons.

The only pad I really like is the Sabrent 12-button controller, but man is the construction on that thing trash! I've gone through two of them in about two months! I can't buy a controller every month. LOL.

I'm looking for a good 6-face button controller for PC. Any help would be much appreciated.

u/Gargenville · 1 pointr/Fighters

This one.

Apparently they only made them for the 360/PS3 though.

u/dafzor · 1 pointr/patientgamers

Be mindful that Sega Genesis/Mega Drive games expect this layout so a SNES controller will not be ideal.

A Sega Saturn Replica Controller or a versus controller might be a better option overall if you want a single controller that's more flexible.

Note: I have never used any of the controllers linked and cannot attest to their quality.

u/swordNbored · 1 pointr/MortalKombat

You can find similar products available for purchase currently. Find something like this in-store and check out the feel of the buttons to see if you like it. If you don't like the left stick, don't worry. The MKX ones are actual Dpads, so as long as you enjoy the feel of the buttons you'll be good to go.

u/LexicanLuthor · 1 pointr/buildapc

I really loved these headphones when I used to have an inline mic. Really good sound quality, comfortable, and a very good deal.

The negative reviews are all about fragility and I can comment on that - had mine for about two years before the mic just stopped working and the sound started coming in really strange. That said, these are relatively cheap, so it's a trade off.

When they wore out I made the mistake of proceeding to try five different headphones, and hating them all. Turtle beach for life.

u/The_catalyzt · 1 pointr/DotA2

I use Turtle Beach X12's. They were originally for my Xbox, but they work perfect on my Computer. Mic and sound quality is fantastic. I bought mine for about £40 over a year ago. Still work perfectly.

u/PonderousWanker · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I recommend the Logitech G230 headset, its 7.1 surround and the mic is absolutely stellar compared to my Turtle Beach X12 headset. The mic on it was absolute dog shit, my mates kept hearing echoing in teamspeak. Could have been a faulty headset but i'm well pleased with the upgrade and it's in your price range. It matches my black and red setup like a dream.

I got this http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005EQE0YM/ref=pe_385040_30332200_TE_item

They've served me well enough for over 3 years at this point.

u/Funklord_Toejam · 1 pointr/buildapc

i personally have this headset [currently ~38$] and think its good value for the $40 i paid. mic quality is great and is very adjustable. earpiece quality isnt the best (or the worst ;) ), but gets quite loud so you can wear the headset around your neck if you want.

there is a slightly cheaper version [~30$] which is similar but i havent used personally but looks like it would get the job done.

u/joedivision · 1 pointr/MMORPG

Ive had about three of these over my gaming lifetime. Every time I get something fancier I always end up going back.

Turtle Beach x12 are $40 on amazon right now and they have easily been the best headphones I have ever used. Would recommend.

$30 now.

This is what I use. https://www.amazon.com/Turtle-Beach-Amplified-Stereo-Headset-PC/dp/B005EQE0YM

It has inline volume controls as well as a bass control. Speakers and mic are both great. It has 3.5mm jacks for the speakers and mic. Can't beat the price.

Track clip works fine with this.

I've had one of these for 4 years now.

The point of failure always seems to be the wire connecting to the headset itself - no problem whatsoever with this one.

I've had both and prefer the xbox controller. I have a musculoskeletal disorder that prevents me from using controllers like the PS4 style with the analog in the middle on the left side.

This is literally the only reason I didn't keep my Steam controller.

I'm still hoping for a new Steam controller that has interchangeable controls, like this from MadCatz.

Unfortunately, they don't. :(

u/Djnuggets · 1 pointr/PS3

I don't know about the quality of these but there are definitely options out there is you search. Here are a few I found.
This one is by Rocketfish
One from Gamestop
A more expesive, but MLG endorsed one. I think I saw this at Gamestop for cheaper too though.
Edit: Fixed the 3rd link.

u/DrStephenFalken · 1 pointr/xbox360

okay thanks for finally explaining that.

With that said you're better off buying a 3rd party controller for the 360 they run the same price as a random USB controller. Often around $15 Another usb controller will have it's own issue. You buy a 3rd party 360 controller you'll be able to use it without an issue on 360 and play PC games with it as well.

u/aidanhoofe · 1 pointr/xbox360

The chances of getting a fake unintentionally are quite low, if you directly from Amazon and check that it says under brand "Microsoft", but id also check the reviews.

There is a good guide on eBay on how to spot the more convincing fakes.

Here are some fakes if you are looking to intentionally buy one: 1 2 3

Amazon US manage to keep sellers from using misleading language in the title, and usually require the seller to put a brand name other than Microsoft at the beginning of the title, unfortunately on the UK site it is more common, as you can see here.

Many modified controllers use fake parts, because the fakes usually have test points that can be used, making it much easier. Often the seller will use a genuine case and a fake circuit board, meaning there is no way to be 100% certain without opening the controller.

Fakes should always feel lighter than a genuine controller, however I once purchased one, where the seller had ripped out the rumble motors and put a ziplock bag of sand in each handle.

u/stupidandroid · 1 pointr/Reds

Most likely will have to go online. this one is a generic one, the actual microsoft ones are a little more expensive. Mine's actually a generic gamestop brand one but it does the trick.

I've used it in a few other PC games too. Like SBK. Not a big investment really, esp if you have an xbox. I imagine a ps3 controller might work, if those are usb.

u/markowalski · 1 pointr/gaming

I use one of those for my emulators and some controller games. Mine is actually a better model than that, but they don't seem to carry mine anymore. It's good, not great, but still one of the better handheld controllers available.

u/PepticBurrito · 1 pointr/pcgaming

The 360 wireless adapter made by Microsoft is $20. A brand new 360 wired controller is $25. Maybe $5 is a lot of money to you, but for $5 more you can have another controller that will work with your PC and your XBOX.

u/TBCMLwacki · 1 pointr/blackops2

You do know they sell these?

u/ChuckieFister · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

I've only really had experience with a couple of Hori sticks and the latest Madcatz te, as well as some custom ones I modded. You have a lot more options on PC, but as for quality I'm not really sure. I know there are some Qanba PC sticks for around $80, but I can't vouch for the quality, although the ratings are pretty good on [Amazon] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BXPIO1S/ref=cm_sw_r_other_awd_YWr7wbJ230K0F)

The buttons and stick might not be of the greatest quality, but it's a good start and I assume some of the high ratings come from being [easy to mod] (https://youtu.be/FllbddE4zes) but for that you'd need to buy new buttons and new stick.


If I were in your position, I'd opt for getting something of decent quality now with the intent to mod it later when you really get a feel for using a stick and get your execution down. And if I didn't want to mod, I'd wait a bit longer or mow a couple lawns and opt for a nice [Hori] [https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00SULMRI4/ref=cm_sw_r_other_awd_y8r7wb9MQ71NQ) or a better quality [Qanba] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007SGGLZW/ref=cm_sw_r_other_awd_39r7wb7K0TS7Y)
Either way, there's still a learning curve when switching peripherals so keep that in mind

u/Intergalactic_Camel · 1 pointr/gameswap

Don't get one of those, those are rather cheap. It will break on you pretty quickly, so save up for something that can take a beating.

http://www.amazon.com/Qanba-Q4-Q4RAF-Black-Fightstick/dp/B007SGGLZW

That's a good stick, and you can connect to the PS3 & PC as well. Just sell your 3DS and games on craigslist or something. It will get you that much closer.

That's like the one I ordered. In the bottom back of your 360 slim is a little square tab that slides back and opens the hard drive slot, notice the similar shape.

u/GreninjaStar · 1 pointr/dragonballfighterz

The first controller that comes to mind for good D Pads on PC would be the Xbox 360 controller with a transforming D Pad. It's a metal D Pad that has a much better design than the original 360 D Pad (the cross part is a lot more concaved and your thumb more easily slides over it). Also you can twist the D Pad itself to have the corner bits drop away so you just have the cross part of the D Pad that your thumb touches. https://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Wireless-Controller-Transforming-Charge/dp/B00936K09S

Thanks for the thought out reply. I honestly need new headphones for home anyways. So worst case I buy in ear for the best noise cancellation.

Sending a PM now :)

u/DireZyre · 1 pointr/headphones

I've been looking for a good, comfortable set of headphones for forever, and still haven't found one, please reddit, answer my calls to the gods!

  • Budget - Approximately $60 or less, give or take a little bit
  • Source - Usb and/or aux 3.5mm
  • Requirements for Isolation - I'd like to still be able to hear if someone is calling out for me, but not every little noise outside my headphones
  • Will you be using these Headphones in Public? No
  • Preferred Type of Headphone - Large On Ear, I'd prefer them to practically not touch my ears at all, just envelop them.
  • Preferred tonal balance - I really have no idea my tonal preferrence, all I know is I don't care about bass, as long as it's not completely absent, or entirely overpowering, it's fine, and I prefer a smoother, clearer sound I suppose?
  • Past headphones - I have never had a pair of earbuds I liked, they always hurt, no matter what I use, and I've only had a few headphones that I could stand for more than an hour, but the best pair I've ever had is my current one, https://www.amazon.com/Afterglow-Universal-Wireless-Xbox-360-6304300630490063060006306200/dp/B009CL6LA6 these, the only problems I have with these are that they're just a bit too heavy, and the strap is a bit too tight, but the ear size is great, the padding on the ear is good, and the strap is comfortable other than how tight it is. Most other headphones the top part will hurt, the adjustable range isn't far enough, they squeeze my head too much (I have a big head, and big ears) or something else
  • Preferred Music - I'm not getting these for the sake of listening to music, at least not the main reason, and honestly sound quality is lower on my list than comfort, I'll mostly be using these to play games with friends and voice chat with them, but if that's not enough to go on then here's my music playlist on youtube https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLF589FAA9A28CFC90
  • What would you like to improve on from your set-up - as I just said, comfort is my #1 concern, as long as the sound quality isn't crap, I don't care if it's not great, I just want to be able ot wear the headphones for at least 3 hours without much discomfort. I'd rather they didn't get hot and sweaty, but I'd prefer that over clamping or any other painful sensation. They don't have to be a headset since I have a nice mic, but a headset would be nice too, so feel free to suggest either.


    I'm pretty sure that's everything, so thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I've got one of these (I bought with the Wii U launched). It worked will just plugged into the game pad with the mic cord. I've used the USB wireless part of it a lot with my TV, I'm thinking it will work just fine with the switch.

u/DaCh33f · 1 pointr/Cyberpunk

They were funded on Indiegogo a while back. They were initially made by Axent Wear, but there's been loads of other companies making them since. Axent probably has the highest quality Cat-earred headphones on the market as a result, but they still aren't great headphones. They're more for aesthetics than anything.

You can find their official distributor here. I definitely wouldn't recommend them though.


As for ones without cat ears, they tend to be headsets rather than straight headphones, so they're usually pretty cheap when it comes to audio quality as well. You can find light up headsets of all kinds at most electronic stores like Best Buy.

Afterglow is probably the best I can think of quality wise. You can find them here on Amazon.

Please be warned, to actually change them for the original ones you need to disassemble the controller first - which causes to loose the warranty.

u/ImNotATexan · 0 pointsr/gaming
  1. Steam Controller - might be able to maintain some continuity in letting you play mouse-needed games from a controller, but otherwise is a pretty good hybrid that will work for everything and has robust support through Steam, and totally customizable configurations on a per game basis. Also if you have a modern Samsung UHD tv, the Steam Link beta is free (works wonderfully) and the Steam Controller is one of the two controller types it currently supports. $49.99, includes everything needed. http://store.steampowered.com/app/353370/Steam_Controller/

  2. Xbox 360 Controller - Will work on basically every game, but some games - even those with 360 pad support - will be retarded and not recognize it, like Dead Rising 2 Off the Record. Not much to say, it's a great controller. You have to buy the wireless dongle separately, it's usually like $30 for the dongle and at this point I'd say $30 or $40 for the controller. https://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Wireless-Controller-Glossy-Black/dp/B003ZSP0WW/ref=sr_1_3?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1503597208&sr=1-3&keywords=xbox+360+controller

  3. Xbox One Controller - better than the 360 controller, but, despite natively having drivers in Windows 8 and 10, it has a lot of driver related problems. Does not include accessories - if you have an S type or newer controller, they have Bluetooth support. You can only pair one XB1 controller via Blue Tooth at a time to your PC. Wireless adapter accessory is somewhat unreliable - it may not ever work for you, period, might work fine. Controller - $40 if lucky to $70+. I have 3, got one for free, one with console, paid $60 or so for my Gears 4 limited ed version. Also the battery life is kind of terrible, I'd say 30 hours if you're lucky. https://www.amazon.com/Xbox-Wireless-Controller-White/dp/B01GW3H3U8/ref=sr_1_5?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1503597180&sr=1-5&keywords=xbox+one+controller

  4. Dual Shock 4 - I have no experience whatsoever with this controller on PC but it does require a separate adapter for wireless. Personally I don't like the feel of it, it's too lightweight when I have used it and the sensor bar seems pointless. It seems like it's probably solid though. https://www.amazon.com/DualShock-Wireless-Controller-PlayStation-Black-4/dp/B00BGA9X9W

  5. Logitech F310 - Wired but absolutely solid controller, no input delay. The layout is PS2 Dual Shock 2, with Xbox face buttons and PS2 style sticks, but the actual thumbgrips are more like XB360 if I remember right. D-pad is one solid piece like the 360 controller. It will work with literally everything, flawlessly, except games that have hardcoded controls like KOF98 / 2000 etc. The only annoying thing is the xinput/directinput switch is in the place where you would expect the Select button to be on a Dual Shock 2, and the select / start are above that. This can often lead to you changing the input on accident, which will basically screw you in any third person game because both camera and character control will stop working. Also the back of the controller is more angled than the DualShock 2. You should be able to grab one for cheap - they've been around for at least 6 years. Despite the 1 piece d-pad I actually think it does fairly well for fighting games, too. It's well made and can survive a lot of abuse. I've dropped mine, stood on it, dropped it, tossed it, thrown it, yanked it from the USB port on purpose and on accident, and it's in perfect shape still 6 years later. http://gaming.logitech.com/en-us/product/f310-gamepad

  6. Logitech F710 - everything above but wireless, maybe a slight input delay, and it also has a vibration switch across from the input select. Different color, 2.4ghz band. $50 http://gaming.logitech.com/en-us/product/f710-wireless-gamepad

    I personally would recommend the F310, if near the PC but the cord is not very long, so more likely the F710, or the 360 controller. I like the XB1 controller but it's battery life is simply unacceptable, and I don't use it enough that I'm willing to consider the sync problems acceptable when I do.

I know it sounds crazy, but I've been using the keyboard on PC and it's actually working pretty well. ASD for movement, space for jump, attacks on numpad. It's like a free hitbox alternative, basically.

For console I just bought one of these. It's not that great but they're only 10 dollars. The buttons are great, the stick takes a bit of getting used to and after about a year my last one started flaking out a tiny bit. I can't justify spending $150 for a stick, though. A regular controller isn't that awkward.

My mother found this headset on sale on Amazon and bought them. I am convinced they are worth the $90 list price but it has some good sound quality but I have not much clue to how the mic compares as I don't use it that much and plus, I don't think the people you talk to on skype really care if your mic is bad as long as they can hear you and if mic quality is a issue for you because of video recording etc. I would recommend getting a good pair of headphones and a clip on mic. This headset is also available wired which I assume would be better quality.

The thing I found good about this mic is that it retracts in and out of one of the earcups instead of folding up and getting snapped off for some reason. In terms of looks the glow was awesome and matched the LEDs in my build when I bought it but now I would probably go with the AFTERGLOW DOLBY 5.1 SURROUND SOUND WIRELESS HEADSETwhich you can set the LEDs to be any color, if I had the money because the current one looks very silly on my head (I don't mind because it's not like anyone can see me :'(.

It is durable, works well, is comfortable, sound quality is excellent IMO and has a great wireless range. Note: when I saw the box I thought it would be Bluetooth wireless or something that I would have to download that I could control from my computer but it was actually a fairly simple headphone jack to a USB which sends the audio wirelessly although this meant that I couldn't do wireless with my iPhone, I used a included wire to try them out for the first time.

They have a couple gimmicks that I thought wouldn't work but actually are awesome! They have 3 settings, one for normal audio, one for more bass, and one for "immersive audio" (enhanced surround sound) which I have found good for both music and games. I prefer my epic speaker setup for hearing the directional sound (if that's what you call it) but sometimes the whole house doesn't want to hear rapid gunfire from upstairs. The range is great, I can listen even when I'm in my basement (my computer is on the 2nd floor).

Today I would probably not look at this headset if I was shopping for a new one unless it was recommended to me by amazon or something but looking back on it I am glad I found it! At first I thought that the manufacturer looked a little sketchy but the PDP customer service were great when I asked for some cables that you can order for free according to the manual (I didn't need them but I thought they could be useful later on) and they arrived within a couple of weeks. Check them out because I didn't think they would be any good and I had never heard of them before but they have served me very well for gaming, music and blocking out the sounds of my siblings.

Amazon listing

I did the same thing to my DS4. Makes the thing dam near perfect if you ask me.

If I were you, I'd buy Grip-iT. Though I don't own it, it's a pretty well known thumbstick and serves it purposes.

But if you thought the thumbstick looks like shit, you're not alone. If you know how to, you can buy Xbone's thumbstick, it costs twice as much and you'll have to put in on manually but hot damn it feels, looks and lasts good.

Just buy one off Ebay or Amazon. I had the same problem and I bought one on Amazon when my Day 1 Edition Xbox 1 power supply died. It works perfectly, no loud noise or any malfunction, it's been almost a year now. Xbox One Power Supply Brick,... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06Y2LGTW3?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share.

Amazon.ca, I know people can't go one day without sucking some indie shop's dick but Amazon.ca has new for $43+tax and free shipping and sellers starting at $36. Check around your local stores see what the prices are and go from there.

Also doesn't hurt to check a Zellers in your area, they always have super old shit that should have been phased out a long time ago, my girlfriend found a pair of those really nice PSP branded headphones (the new SKU comes with a memory card for $40, fuck that shit), something that's been out of stock everywhere for a long time.

This one.

If you are going to play any flight sims, this one is well rated and looks like it has all the buttons.

They make controllers that are flipped anyway, fuck they make them interchangeable now too.

What kind of fight stick do you use? I personally use a Qanba Q4 www.amazon.com/Qanba-Q4-Q4RAF-Black-Fightstick/dp/B007SGGLZW

Here is a good one for 30

Bad one for 20

Again, console quality. Consoles are dx9. It's defidently viable. Otherwise, college discounts make windows dirt cheap, and if you get lucky, you may find a windows 7 guy.
Xp is certainly dated, but, this is a 235 dollar build.

The fuck? Why would they do this?

M2K and Armada have seriously lost my respect for letting this happen. They needed to hit up a new sponsor, who then could be properly supported, and their influence in the community would educate other Smash players about what is going on.

It's like everyone is such a goddamn pussy when it comes to leaving EMP. I don't get it.

I bought one of these at Evo: http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Versus-Controller/dp/B0051MQJWU/ Was a really dinky pad, but fun to mess around with. Pisses me off seeing their name remotely associated with EMP.
