    Ok, for Christmas i originally wanted an Xbox or Ps3 but never really was going to happen because of how expensive thet are, so i am going to get a few games for my computer instead including MW2 and orange box (Yes finally!!). so my question is, if i choose to buy an xbox controller for my Pc does it give a good console type of experience and does it include any lag or other problems when using it?

    Thanks in advance

    I never got it to work fully, because it took to much work....

    There are some games that work with a xbox 360 controller out of the box, but for others (including MW2) you have to set it up with something like xpadder. It takes a lot of tweaking, but once you get it set up it gives you pretty much a console experience with better graphics (given you have a half-decent computer).

    Yea i have a late 2008 iMac running bootcamp for the games. Runs fallout 3 on High very well. Also would this work: http://www.switchbladepro.com/ for Modern warfare 2 but switching it to MW 1 mode guessing that its very similar controls which i can tweak around with it a little?

    Not to hate.. but why? Mouse and keyboard is about 500 times more efficient after you get used to it.

    Just a follow up, its fantastic even if its not fantastic on an online FPS (which i havnt tried just from what ive heard). I started playing trackmania on it and i came 7th out of 107 people which i would usually only get around 20 or so with the arrow keys so im very happy with it =)
