I am using Oculus Rift on a fully loaded Alienware Aurora R7 PC with a NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti with 11GB GDDR5X graphics card. I want to play Project Cars and am told that it would work with a game pad. What game pad works with Rift. Need a long cable or wireless. Many thanks.

    I have project cars and it works fine with my wireless Xbox s controller.
    Alienware 17r4 Laptop with i7-7700hq 2.8/3.6, 32 gb ram, gtx1060 w/6gb ram, 256gb ssd, 1tb hdd, Oculus Rift w/2x sensors.  Now using an Alienware Graphics Amplifier (AGA) with Zotac gtx1080ti Blower and Asus vg248qe 144hz external monitor.  All works great!

    Wireless Xbox Controller is the best gamepad around.

    I don't have a XBOX. Will the wireless controller work on my Alienware PC?

    the xbox one  pad will via wired usb connection
    if you have one of the NEW xbox 1 S/X controllers (I would guess any you buy new now would qualify)  then if you only want 1 controller and your pc has blue tooth then you can get it to work that way - but will be limited to 1 control pad

    if you get hold of an older xbox1 pad or you want wireless with more than 1 pad attached to your pc then you will need a special dongle.

    Fiat Coupe, gone. 350Z gone. Dirty nappies, no sleep & practical transport incoming. Thank goodness for VR :)

    Doesn’t matter. Go to Walmart and purchase the controller anyways. They DO work with any Windows 10 pc as long as it has Bluetooth. You can also get a wire for it and run it that way.

    Thanks. 1 controller works fine as I'm using an Oculus Rift VR headset and single player experiences.I'll give it a try.

    Any reason why you're not using the Touch Controllers?

    Touch controllers are great but the Project Cars app says it only works with keyboard/mouse or game pad. I don't have the coding skills to make it work with the T-controllers.
