microsoft made a 360 controller for the pc. I know they did I saw it in compUSA once. So if you're looking for a pc 360 controller, they certainly exist.http://www.compusa.com/applications/Search...7&CatId=141
That controller won't work on a PS3 because it requires special drivers to be installed, and the PS3 doesn't allow for that.
I've imported the Powerwave Xbox controller clone for the PC a few weeks ago. It feels great and works fine on my PC (except for the fact that the triggers are just digital and not analog), but on the PS3 there are some rather formiddable problems.
Problem #1: No buttons or triggers are analog. Everything's digital with exception of the analog sticks.
Problem #2: The right stick looks up and down when pushing left and right and pivots the camera left and right when pushing up and down. This is not what the game control is supposed to be, and it would take some serious adaptation to deal with this. If you're good at soldering, you might be able to take apart the controller and "fix" this issue, but I'd probably just end up breaking the controller if I tried to do this.
Problem #3: It offers rumble in my PS2 games, but not the PS3 games. Be aware that there's only one single rumble motor inside it- not two. The rumble effect feels fine, though.
Problem #4: No home button.
Problem #5: No sixaxis function.
I suppose that it's a pretty nice controller for Burnout or Motorstorm, but for racing games that require finessing of brakes and accelerator (ie. GT5) it wouldn't be very good. If anyone wants to buy mine from me (I've got the box and PC installation disc), I'll sell it for $18 shipped.
(I've got 100% positive Ebay rating so don't hesitate to request that info in a PM if you are interested in my controller.)
