    Hi.

    Personally, I just opt for using an Xbox 360 controller with my PC. They're readily available and work out of the box with Windows. If you've a wireless controller, you can even purchase wireless adapters for them too. Could do the same with your Xbone controller(s) if you have/when you get an Xbone. : )

    Xbox 360 and xbox one controllers (both wireless versions) are almost the same price. I hold an xbox one controller and the dpad the i always use has a nice "clicky" feeling that xbox 360 dont. But see people are really satisfy by the xbox controllers in genreal.

    I use a wired Xbox 360 Common Controller with my PC, use it for playing anything such as GTA5 to Elite Dangerous

    I use the Play Station DS4. It does need a wee bit of fuss with needing a program called DS4Windows but it works really well. Its touch pad also manipulates the computers mouse, which is quite handy for general laziness. Also with the DS4Windows program you can modify various options, which aside from the light bar color, I haven't changed anything myself but it has all kinds of functional changes that i'm sure interest some people.
