OK. I have made to decision to jump to PC gaming. :)
For now, I just want to play really old games via steam on my laptop. Is this considered to be a good all around controller for pc gaming?
I loved the feel of the 360 controller, but wonder how it well it is supported and what not. Does the wireless receiver work ok?
Yeah, it's the most supported controller out there. Receiver works perfectly. Should be able to just plug in and go.
This is true also, though. Could have problems with older stuff.
How old? It works fine in most newer (2006+) games, they'll detect it and use matching button prompts, etc. Older games won't recognize the triggers or won't recognize it at all. You need to use a different gamepad for those.
