Just load software and off you go works perfect with Prototype and Assassins Creed and I assume on anything else only got it 4 hours ago so havn't tried everything yet. Oh by the way ordered this controller on Tuesday @ 3.00pm delivered Wednesday @ 3.20pm cannot praise the delivery from Play.com highly enough,
For ease of setup and use I dont think you can get better than this, Highly Recommend.
First of all, this is the best price I have found for both the controller AND the wireless receiver. Second of all, it works a treat! As soon as the CD was installed it was ready to use. Its very comfortable to use and I don't have to sit close to the screen anymore with it being wireless. Definitely beats the keyboard!
i think the title sums it all up really.
this pad is exactly the same that is used on the xbox360 with the addition of a wireless reciever and a cd install disc which enables you to use it on the pc.
it is a doddle to set up and i was using mine within 5 mins of getting it out of the packaging.
it is instantly recognised by windows games and is by far the most accurate pad available for the pc.
if you are thinking of buying one.... stop thinking, just buy it already.
I purchased this pad hoping to jump into Mass Effect and enjoy the game as it should be played but alas it doesn't work. It's unrealistic to expect already-released games to fully support a controller that wasn't even released when they were developing their games but I havent actually found a game that fully supports it yet.
Also, games generally don't support the controller's vibration feature so it feels like a bit of dead wood.
Also, not many games support a "z axis" so you wont be able to map those shoulder buttons either.
To be honest I think the ergonomics are great and the hardware is awesome but due to software issues that have plagued the PC for years, it seems a bit pointless paying all that money for what is in effect half a controller.
If you get the wired one however you can get some special drivers called XBDC that allow yout to map the shoulder buttons and enable vibration in older games that dont support it. Of course though the XBDC drivers dont support wireless.
Overall not very happy but great service from Play.com as usual.
