Best fps controller for xbox 360?


I’ve played a lot of first person shooters on PC, with keyboard & mouse of course. When I tried playing one of the CoD games on Xbox a while back at a friend’s house, the controls with the analog sticks just felt clunky and unnatural.

Well, my pc is getting old and I’m considering buying an Xbox 360. The game I’m most interested in is the upcoming Borderlands 2. I loved the first one on pc.

For those who are familiar with playing both pc and console fps games, what is my best option for a controller? Are the analog sticks on the standard xbox controller best and I just need to get used to them? Or would an xbox-compatible keyboard and mouse be best? Or is there a light-gun controller that works with most fps games that people have had success with? It seems like being able to physically point at the screen in a shooter might be easier, not sure.

Thanks for any advice!

  1. I think you might just have to get used to the controller. There is a light gun for the PS3, called the “Move,” but that doesn’t even work for most games. A game like Borderlands is like an RPG and there’re too many buttons to press and menus to scroll through to be able to use a light gun effectively, I think.

    Anyway, it’s just a matter of getting used to it. Play with the sensitivity settings and turn it up or down depending on your taste.

  2. check first if your PC can run it, the system requirements for Borderlands 2 are listed here:
