    but i'm no hardcore gamer... xbox 360 controller is costly.
    and i've read that we can use xmapper(dont remember the name properly) or some other software to remap the buttons for any game.

    logitech one should be available inside 1k in that case

    and frontech and zeb ones (not reliable) are avilable for some 500 bucks.

    xbox 360 controller is the best go. I'm using for two years straight solid and works totally fine. And gives you super fun with games. Not to mention they are highly recommended and compitible wih all latest games.

    I went to the dealer who said that I should check with zebronics but then just ignored it and bought the xbox one.

    as people say , xbox is best to go for. if u want save money u may go for zebronics or frontech. i bought 1 frontech with dual analog @ Rs.390/- around 2-3 years ago (fantasypad) and it works just fine. still, the front trigger buttons according to my opinion are crap but d-pad and pad buttons are good. analogs are not too bad either.

    yes, if some game doesnt support gamepad natively, u can map it with Xpadder or JoytoKey anytime.

    its fun. :)
