    Never purchased anything about Amazonbasics before. What I know that it's branded by Amazon

    I am interested in this one. Do you think it worth the money and quality?

    Or should I spend a little bit more for a Microsoft wireless gamepad? starting at approx. $43 on Amazon.com

    IMO I would go with the actual Xbox controller. As for what little it's worth its backed by Microsoft so it should work.

    I don't have an Xbox and will not buy one. I only play games with PC. Still sticking to Microsoft's one??

    I think the main reason for the official xbox ones is that they are officially supported by Windows 10.

    But then as long as it says in the advert that it works with and has Windows 10 support then I wouldn't see a problem with it.

    Yea, pretty much what the other guy said, it's supported by Microsoft natively as well as I think steam API or something.

    To be honest I had a game pad before mad Catz or something like that one of the see through glowey ones. It still uses official firmware and all that but I had a lot of issues with it drifting and random inputs without button presses even when not being touched....and the issue persisted across 3-4 of them I tried.

    Just buy an official Xbox One controller. This one comes with an adapter in the box.

    You can also plug it in via usb. Which is how I recommend doing it.

    Also are you using it on a laptop or desktop? You can run it through your blue tooth module if you are using a laptop.

    Edit: Just buy an official Xbox One controller. The quality and ease of use is worth the few extra dollars.
