    I bought a controller at best buy that lets you use it as a xbox controller or ps3controller style for $40. It has a cable, but it is wicked. The left joystick is reversible to a d-pad.

    well it managed to sort it out put the controls with the right keys to play a specific game (call of duty MW) but it isnt as accurate as i thought eg. when i look to move left it does and instant 90 degree turn and ive tried different ways to try to sort it out but i cant seem to do it
