Gamepad Pc Buy


Are you a devout keyboard and mouse gamer who imagines yourself rarely using a gamepad The Logitech F310 is the perfect option for you, as it only costs around $15, but it includes everything you need for your occasional cravings to use a controller. This option delivers dual joysticks, bumpers and triggers, four standard face buttons, and an eight-directional D-Pad, while ten buttons are programmable to customize the gamepad to your needs.

The Sony DualSense changes the aesthetics of the DualShock, making for a sleeker, easier-to-grip gamepad that still offers a similar control scheme and symmetrical analog sticks. Steam support is on the controller, while advanced haptics and adaptive triggers work on PC using a wired connection. With more PlayStation-exclusive games ending up not so exclusive thanks to PC ports, full DualSense functionality on PC makes for the best way to play those games.

The Switch Pro easily connects to your PC via a wired connection, but going wireless requires jumping through a few hoops. The good news is once you've paired it over Bluetooth, Steam will automatically recognize it as an Xbox One controller with all the button mapping done for you. However, if you're playing games outside of Steam, you'll need the 8BitDo Wireless USB Adapter to make the Switch Pro Controller act like an Xbox One gamepad.

You can't play video games without a good control system. Maybe you want a keyboard and mouse for your shooters and strategy titles. Maybe you don't mind using a touch screen for smartphone puzzles. Most games, though, play best with some form of dedicated controller. That's why every major game console comes with a gamepad or two, and why they all can be connected to your PC with some tinkering.

If you have a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One S, managed to find a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, or splurged on a Switch Pro Controller for your Nintendo Switch, you already have a gamepad you can use with your PC. These controllers have the benefit of rock-solid build quality and reliable PC compatibility (with some software or adapters required for the Nintendo and Sony gamepads). If you don't already have one, though, they're a bit pricey at $60 to $70 each.

Whether it came with the Xbox One or Xbox Series, or you bought it separately, the Xbox Wireless Controller is immediately compatible with any Windows 10 or 11 PC as a wired controller; just plug it into a USB port and you can start playing with it. If the controller was manufactured in the last five years, it can pair wirelessly with your computer over Bluetooth. If you want to use more than one Xbox gamepad, or if you have an early Xbox Wireless Controller without Bluetooth, you can use the $25 Xbox Wireless Adapter to connect up to eight gamepads to your PC at once without dealing with Bluetooth pairing. If you want to splurge, the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 is one of our favorite wireless gamepads, though it's also a hefty $180.

The PS4's DualShock 4 and the PS5's DualSense controllers (and the third-party Scuf Reflex Pro) also work with your PC through a USB or Bluetooth connection, at least with most Steam games. Steam offers a PlayStation Configuration Support option in its controller settings menu that should get either controller to work like an Xbox gamepad, and even supports button remapping.

You can also use the 8Bitdo Wireless USB Adapter(Opens in a new window), a $20 dongle that connects to your PlayStation gamepad (and many other kinds of controllers) and properly maps it to work in Windows. It even supports 8Bitdo's Ultimate Software for extensive mapping and customization.

The Nintendo Switch's Joy-Cons also connect to your PC, but they require even more wrestling. They're great on the Switch, but they don't feel quite as solid or have nearly as comfortable directional controls as the Xbox Wireless Controller or DualShock 4. Instead, we recommend the Switch Pro Controller. It's a powerful and sturdy conventional gamepad that can work with your PC without much effort, thanks to the Switch Pro Configuration Support option in Steam's controller settings menu (it's two options below PlayStation Configuration Support). For non-Steam games, the 8Bitdo Wireless USB Adapter will also work here.

If you want to break out of the $60 to $70 range of controllers, third-party gamepads offer much more choice. There are wired and wireless options that range from $20 to over $200, depending on design, features, and customization options. And, of course, build quality; less expensive gamepads from third-party manufacturers can be hit-or-miss affairs in terms of how sturdy they feel and how well they play, which is why we recommend reading our reviews and being wary of inexpensive and unfamiliar gamepads that seem too good to be true.

There are other options out there as well, in both wired and wireless forms. The wired Nacon Pro Compact Controller is a more petite gamepad that might better suit smaller hands, while the PowerA Spectra Infinity has programmable RGB lighting.. And if you want to return to the SNES inspiration 8Bitdo has drifted away from with the Pro 2, the Retro-Bit Legacy16 Wireless is another good choice.

If you really want to splurge, you can get enthusiast-level gamepads from companies that offer a wide range of customization options. Some, like Controller Chaos, Evil Controllers, and Scuf generally modify first-party Nintendo, PlayStation, and Xbox gamepads, overhauling them inside and out with custom designs, new buttons, and even sometimes electronic tricks to get an edge in games like Call of Duty and Fortnite by providing specific inputs that take advantage of certain mechanics.

These companies let you build your ideal gamepad from the ground up. Different colors, patterns, and finishes are available, with additional options like whether the analog sticks are concave or convex (often with removable options with different lengths), extended triggers, and even faux bullet face buttons. Rear paddle buttons are common on these gamepads, and they provide two or four additional, programmable inputs for your fingers that rest on the grip.

These gamepads are often the most feature-filled, striking, and customizable, but they're also the most expensive. They start at three digits, with fully overhauled controllers easily costing over $200. If you want custom colors but don't need the rear paddles or extra features, the Xbox Design Lab lets you make your own first-party Xbox Wireless Controller with your favorite colors and finishes for a fraction of the price.

If you want crisp directional controls and lots of face buttons but like to hold your controller in your hand still, you can pick up a fightpad like the Hori Fighting Commander or the Razer Raion FightPad. These are gamepads that strip away features fighting game enthusiasts don't need, like analog sticks, and instead offer excellent direction pads and three-by-two face button layouts.

If you're a fan of driving simulators or flight simulators, you might want to invest in some simulator-worthy equipment. Racing wheels are steering wheel controllers that let you drive cars in racing games by realistically turning a wheel instead of tilting a stick. Similarly, flight joysticks (not to be confused with the analog sticks on gamepads or the digital sticks on arcade sticks) let you fly planes with a realistic full-hand grip to control your pitch, roll, and yaw. These seem like very different types of controllers, and they are. Still, they share three important common factors: They're designed for very specific games and genres, they often consist of multiple, modular components, and they can be expensive.

You also don't worry about connecting a controller to a PC as it's a simply process and most games support the use of a gamepad. Plus, with back-to-school season in full swing, many of these controllers will be on sale, and they're just the perfect peripherals to use as incentive for the kids to study harder or finish their homework on time.
