SteamedSteamedSteamed is dedicated to all things in and around Valve’s PC gaming service.

Nearly 200,000 Steam users play PC games with SNES controllers. That’s the most surprising factoid from Valve’s data about controllers. Xbox 360 controllers are most used (27.2 million), while Xbox One and PS4 are nearly neck-and-neck (11.5 million and 12.2 million). The Steam controller, at 1.5 million, remains niche.

I use a wired 360 controller I found at a local thrift some years back. Nowadays the 360 controller (wired and wireless) are as common as an old shoe at the thrifts, often for between $1.99-$3.99 so if you need one for cheap, look there!
