Had anyone successfully used a PS3/Xbox controller with a PC? I've got a smokin fast PC, but hate the keyboard/controls.

Just bought Portal 2 on Steam for $10. 11gb download, though :o. Been choking my internets for the last 2 hours, and I'm at 63%!

Also, if you've held off on buying Fallout: NV, it's also $10 on Steam.

whoops. I finally finished the quest I've been working towards tonight. I figured it was about 10:30. I was only off by 5 hours or so.

Nice, I got Portal 1 on there for free awhile back. Xbox Live has some great deals with Super Meat Boy being 400 points. They said Friday and Monday will have a lot of specials so I need to stock up on some points.

So I played BFBC2 and loved it on PC. I think I'll like BF3, just got some questions:

Are the Advrider folks that are playing BF3 on PC, 360 or PS3?

Wal Mart's got BF3 for the 360 for $28. PC version is full price. I played Halo on 360 and didn't like it. Am I going to hate BF3 on the 360?

My PC is an i5-750 Lynnfield processor with a HD4870 graphics card. Am I going to need to upgrade to have fun on BF3?

Thanks
Brett

I'd go with PC. But check your computer with this link.

You need one of these
http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-Wireless-.../dp/B000HZFCT2

and the xbox wireless controller will work fine on the PC for games that support it.

If you have a wired 360 controller it will connect right up to a PC. Drivers are available if it doesn't see it. If you have wireless then you'll need the wireless unit. I think for the PS3, you can use the USB cable. Really though, most games these days support the 360 controller if nothing else so it's great in that it doesn't require remaping.
