    My main controller on my PC is the Xbox Elite v2 controller. I do sometimes use the Switch Pro controller though, if I'm playing something like Breath of the Wild that requires gyro.

    My gamepad controller is the PowerA Xbox X|S / One Enhanced Wired Controller – Green Hint


    It's a really good controller and it is Windows compatible, even though it doesn't say so in the website. I don't have an Xbox One Console. But the enhanced controller works perfectly out of the box with Windows Update drivers.

    It has 2 on the fly remappable buttons at the back of the controller and a volume button for headphones that you can adjust the volume.

    @BLaZiNgSPEED That looks really cool. Does it come in bluetooth/wireless version?

    Unfortunately not exactly this type of controller. There are only 3 other alternative controllers that PowerA make that are wireless.

    Xbox One Controllers | PowerA
    But these are specific mobile Bluetooth controllers. The rest of the 27 enhanced controllers are all wired controllers.

    I guess it is a marketing tactic. They don't want to make a universal controller that is fully compatible for Android, Xbox and PC, otherwise people won't buy separate controllers.

    But since I'm a PC Gamer only, I don't like wireless anyway as you need to constantly charge the batteries. The wire is very long, 3 meter cable. So far I've had it for 6 months, no drifting issues at all thus far. I bought it here in the UK from Argos store for £30. Bit more pricier than the non-enhanced controllers, but I think it is worth it still.

    The only thing I don't like about this controller is the rubber finger marks tend to catch some white stains. You have to clean thoroughly to try and even it out. But you can buy the non-rubberized ones if this annoys you.

    I interchange PC, mobile, and tablet a lot due to my emulators so bluetooth is useful for me. I don't own the consoles haha. You can always wire them too with standard USB cables so they don't use battery power. :)

    My recent addition is the 8BitDo SN30 Pro G Classic:
