questions about 360 controllers on pc

Chat about anything not covered in these forums, but keep it civil!

I've been playing with a dualshock with an USB adapter for AGES.

that's what I like about PC: choice. Choice in video card, choice in CPU, choice in everything. All custom made. You can't whine about your hardware because you chose it.
Bad hardware makers start losing business real quick (unless they sell dirt cheap, which happens).

So... software has to go with this. PC is not a closed platform.
I'm not saying that the 360 controller is bad... (or that NVidia are bad videocards, as I'm an ATI user right now), I'm saying as we're on PC, there HAS to be choice.

I don't see any point in arguing against controllers on PC. I mean, anyone that wants them can get them, the rest of us aren't affected by it. Those that want specialized controller plugins for Construct can develop themselves or find someone to do so, it is just another plugin that expands Construct features. To us (m&k diehard fans :twisted: ), it would just be another plugin in the list of plugins that we just glance over.

No big deal. Live and let live, I say.

Luckily there's a single unified interfase to address every single PC controller out there... except for the 360's pad.

The only thing Ive been trying to say is that you are shooting your sef in the foot audience wise if you have no support for mouse and keyboard AKA a pc game with only 360 controller support would be shooting your self in the foot. Im not saying its a bad thing to have multiple input supports.

My laptop doesn't have enough USB ports to support 360 controllers.
