So I purchased Brothers - a Tale of 2 Sons in the Steam sale and it requires a controller to play it. I've always used keyboard/mouse (well, many years ago I destroyed several flight joysticks playing TIE Fighter, but that's another story) so I don't own a controller.

What controller would you suggest for the PC? I guess wired/wireless doesn't really matter but I would think wireless would be preferred...?

Thank you for your assistance.

Anything Xbox compatible, because someone decided that XInput, which is feature-less than DirectInput, was the way to go. In other words, if you use a controller not compatible with XInput, it behaves weirdly with software that only accepts XInput.

I'm looking at the Logitech F710. Seems like a decent controller and slightly less than MS's version.

I appreciate your assistance.

That looks good. May be hard to play some games with that d-pad though ;)

HI bddog,The $60/£35 Xbox One controller is easy to set up. If you have a wireless Xbox One controller lying around, you just need to find yourself a long micro USB cable. (Be warned that not all micro USB cables are the same—some are designed solely to charge cell phones and won’t work.) If you buy the silly ‘PC’ version releasing next month, you’re set, as it comes with a micro USB cable. That’s the only difference I'm aware of between it and a regular Xbox One controller. I would have much preferred a wireless dongle, but this is what Microsoft is releasing.Just try t..reply your suggestion please..Keep in touch with us..Thanks in Adavance :D :D
