I game 100% on PC. I have a ps3 and a wii but they never get used, except for netflix streaming or blu-ray playback.

I got a XBox 360 Elite a month or so before the PS3 was released. I played it for a good year. Wasn't really impressed.
Only complaint I have with PC gaming is when I play FIFA. So hard with keyboard and mouse, and I don't have a wired 360 controller =\

Well with the controller,that's quite clear for PC some games like action (assassin's creed) sports (fifa) or even racing (Need for speed) can be far enjoyable on the XBOX 360 controller more than the keyboard and mouse
It's the same case here,i play FIFA 12 on my PC,celebrations run at 60FPS (on console match plays at 60FPS,while replays and goal celebrations are locked at 30FPS) and the only problem is me not having a wireless receiver (i have a wireless pad for my xbox already)
and BTW do you remember FIFA 08,09 and 10 on PC? they were better on PS3 and 360,but on PC they were just porting the PS2 game in the DirectX9 APi with very few tweaks,crazy stuff right!
From what i see on replies and the poll,most of you already had thier days on console,but all switched to PC for the best experience,and some of you like me do regret not having absolutely fantastic titles like Gran Turismo,or Forza on PC

You can buy a wireless USB dongle to run an Xbox controller on your PC. All Xbox controllers are compatible with Windows. That's what I did in order to play simulation games. Racing games are better with an analog controller than on a keyboard.

The drivers for that thing are only for Windows XP, Vista, or 32-bit 7. I have 64-bit 7

I disagree. Racing games are better with wheel. I can drive with a controller but I'm quite literally faster with the keyboard... OK I can drive but I can't drive well with a controller, uad a keyboard and then basicly went strait to wheel and never looked back.

Smomeone answer me this, why is Xbox has such rubbish wheel support?

I purchased a Gamecube and a bunch of games from kijiji recently in hopes to get my GF to game a little with me.

She hasn't touched a controller once. :P
