3rd Party Xbox Controllers
« on: May 04, 2020, 06:46:16 PM »
I'm fed up with buying these shitty Microsoft Xbox One controllers, the build quality is fucking awful and they never last very long. I've got an eye on getting the new Xbox console at the end of the year so don't really want to be spunking away 50 quid on a new Xbox One controller to use for 6 months. So are there any good options for cheaper 3rd party controllers that are actually decent and last a while before they stop working?

To be fair, it's Microsoft's fault for putting in a built-in vibration function.

Xbox One controllers are forward-compatible with the Xbox Series X, so you'll still be able to use them on your new console.

Using them to play games, funnily enough. The official controllers are notoriously shoddily made, buttons and ports stop working, plastic wearing away on dpads, analogue stick drift etc. They're great to use, not just not very well made.

That's good news at least, if I can get one in a sale.

Leapfrogging on this, is there an okayish controller I can get that would work on PS3 and PC without being a big pain for one or the other?

Megadrive one works definitely, a mate who drives a Sierra told me.

Has it got analogue controls?
