It makes sense now, generally controllers only work with multiplatform games as they already have the bindings there. It might work but it'd be far better to get a mouse, an average mouse will probably be slightly cheaper than a wired 360 controller. If anything get a cheap keyboard as well because laptop keyboards never really clicked well with me for gaming.

He speaks the truth, gamepads suck. This is the reason xbox live/PSN don't play with PC's. It'd be perfectly possible for every game on the Xbox to play with PC gamers too, so xbox guys would get the dedicated servers of PC's rather than Peer 2 Peer hosting (LOL), however they don't do it because the amount of butthurt coming from the xbox as they got their ass handed to them 24/7 would rival the size of Jupiter.

Srs, buy a mouse + buy a keyboard. You will not regret it, only thing a 360 controller is good for are jets, even then a joystick is far, far better.

Yeh my friend is also curious about it supporting the 360 controller. I've tried to get him into using a mouse and keyboard but he cannot get used to it. He's much better with a 360 controller and to be fair to him he gets a lot of kills on BF3 on the PC when using a controller, more than most people on the server as well.

Controllers require Aim assists. There is no aim assist. So, use at your own peril.

Perhaps check into the logitech G13 that may be easier for you.

While I do greatly prefer mouse and keyboard for a shooter, and this is the primary reason I avoid console shooters, I actually do have a PC Xbox controller that I wouldn't mind being able to try with vehicles.

its really a matter of preference not performance, Also a gamer's skill is a factor.


and the argument about aim assist is bull sh*t, I personally do better with a controller on PC fps then a keyboard and mouse, its a lot easier to aim than the mouse, as well as being quicker at evasive things like turning around
