PC Game Controllers

Post by Stormbringer » Wed Oct 09, 2019 12:21 pm

Guys,

I'm looking for some game controllers for the PC, so my kids can play our Sega Mega Drive Classics with these instead of keyboards.

What do you recommend?

Years back I bought an Xbox 360 controller to play a football game on PC, and over the past week my eldest has started using it to play co-op with me on Lego games, it's been working very well.

It suddenly occurred to me...

The obvious choice.

Not sure about the quality of those but you can't go wrong with 8bitdo.

Thanks for that!

Does anyone know if a PC can support more than one of these at the same time?

It's just a Bluetooth accessory, so I don't see why it wouldn't support more than one.
