360 controllers work like BUTTAH. I've had no issues with mine, however it is corded. You will probably need a third party program to use a wireless one, even if you plug it in via USB. I strongly suggest getting a $26 GameStop wired 360 controller if you are planning on picking one up and you actually have a GameStop near you. I'm pretty sure they are licensed by Microsoft so they are plug and play for all modern games that support controller use. Plus the Official Microsoft ones are $40+ and pretty much the same thing.
Also, I've tried toggle as well, and I hate it for combat. However, toggle or mixed work wonders for crafting. If you don't map an action to triangle/Y you can still use it to quick synth in the craft menu without having to toggle the cross bar off. It is pretty nice not having to constantly toggle/hold the button while crafting. I'm sure you could also map a synth action to triangle/Y if there is one for the same effect.
