One of the reasons I steer clear of shooters on the console is that I am a mouse and keyboard man. I prefer shooters on my PC, but there are some PC games that are best suited to a gamepad or a joystick. Any gamer who has tried to play a racing sim or a flight sim will tell you the mouse and keyboard are not best for those types of games.
Logitech has unveiled several new gamepads for PC gamers that look a lot like controllers that PS3 players will be used to. The F310 has a floating D-pad and ships with profiler software for programming the buttons. The F510 is the same as the F310 with the addition of rumble feedback. The really cool controller is the F710.
The big feature of the F710 is that it is a wireless controller and uses 2.4GHz technology to connect. It uses the familiar nano-receiver Logitech uses for all its wireless gear. All of the controllers have the familiar shoulder buttons from console controls. Pricing and availability information is not offered at this time.
