    Just bought Road Redemption on steam sale and finally realise now is the time to buy a contoller as its just not that great for keyboard / mouse!
    Anyone reccomend one around the £30 price point? not bothered about it being wired or wireless just decent enough build quality

    Can you easily get the ps4 controller to work? I've got two of those already. :D

    Sure, but assuming your running windows, the xbox pad also being microsoft has better baked in support and integration, it just works.

    I believe the xbox one pad for windows (newer one with bluetooth too) can recharge via usb cable, although what I did was buy a 4 pack of high capacity rechargeable AA batteries, 2900mah - they seem to last really well between charges.
