Well on the PC, if you (in general) are going to use a controller, you need something quicker and smoother and that would be a PC controller by Logitech with the Logitech Profiler software. Xpadder is a cheaper alternative, but it won't measure up overall to Profiler software by Logitech. The only downfall is that their Profiler only works for their controllers, but for years, it has been better than the rest. The second closest software to map keys is Pinnacle.
A 360 controller will probably be much slower here and I have tried it myself. I can't do much with it on the PC (I've seen video of someone playing with it on PC just fine though), but I prefer looser sticks that lets you move at the speed you need to because the 360 controllers don't have 'looseness' and flow to them. Better to use a PC controller (Logitech) and map your own keys.
Look you're doing it wrong.
Go to the microsoft store,
look for the xox controllers,
download the provided drivers.
Once downloaded, you can use the xbox controller for any game as long as you have a wired 360 or for the wireless an adapter.
As for PS3 you need a ps3 and a usb to connect it to the PC.
once running connect ps3 controller,
go to driver manager,
chose the slot that the controller shows up in.
click on load driver, and
after it installs the dirvers,
click home and choose 360 emulator.
from there you can click options to modify button layout and create presets for different genres
I've talked to a lot of people on playstation about this issue and noticed most people do not know what a Game Pad is. I bought on when I decided to start Gaming on PC. There are different variations of them, some resembling x-box controllers & some Play station controllers. Depending on how much money you spend on them determines how good they are, for example some want have a PS or home button for use on you game system but is unneeded on your pc so NO problem there. At the same time when I bought my first one the triggers were not pressure sensitive so they leak boredom when it comes to drivers. They do come with an installer software to adjust sensitivity and vibration that works with all devices for your PC.
