    I just got a Madcatz PS3 controller (wireless w/o rumble) and was wondering if I can use it on my computer. Because that's why I bought it (i don't have a ps3). TIA.

    Not a very smart move, usually you find out if something works before you buy it. =P That said, you will likely need some way for your computer to interact with your controller, like a module or your computer's native wireless thing being tweaked, if it even has it.

    And even then, that doesn't guarantee that it'll work, since someone has to either make a program/drivers or something else and you'll have to wait.

    Edit: Looks like I'm wrong, interesting...

    I don't know ^ that is the one I used, but manually back up the driver if you can.

    When I was using the SIXAXIS supporting driver, I had problem using "safely remove hardware" thing. And my external HDD was set up to use cache so it was vital.

    I have a ps3 controller question, too. If I buy a mini-usb headset will it work if i plug it into the sixaxis' mini usb port?

    D-pad on a 360 is ****ing horrible. Since he's playing Emus the PS3's D-pad is the best choice.

    I heard newer 360 controllers have the d-pad fixed. I haven't seen one myself, but that's what I heard.

    I'd give Dead Rising 10/10 if and only if I have a 360 controller with perfectly working d-pad.

    Shut up old man, I tried to pick up the phone as best as I could, even after 100 hours of playing I still can't get used to this lame d-pad pressing up+right or up+down on its own, so you should get used to me hanging up on you.
