It works and I didn't pay too much!
It's the PC version of the Playstation gamepad, and it works well, especially with EA Sports games that for some reason are optimized for this controller. I can now play MVP Baseball 2004 without using some crazy half-gamepad/half-keyboard control setup. Or all keyboard for that matter. Anyway, it comes with emulation software to map buttons to certain keystrokes, but I didn't install it. Microsoft Sidewinder was the first to do that I think, and I tried it and it just annoyed me. I like to have as few "system bar" icons as possible, and you don't really need the emulator stuff unless you're playing games that aren't made for the gamepad. That's not me. So, if you want a controller that's just like the Playstation one, and don't want to fork over twice as much for the rumble version, get this! Oh yeah, way to go buy.com on pricing! This controller is 19.99 elsewhere, and here was 16 something. Nice!
