    Ok, Im new to this and am likely getting a pi 2 for christmas, however i ran into something that is of concern for me.

    first off, do i store games on the sd card or off a usb storage device?
    if i can store them on card, will the emulators deal with zip or rar files or do they need to be unzipped? this would largely determine how big a card i get.

    also, what controller works with this?
    will a wired 360 work?
    is anyone trying to get the steam controller to work?

    sorry if this crap has been answered before.

    welcome 🙂

    either – SD card by default

    if i can store them on card, will the emulators deal with zip or rar files or do they need to be unzipped? this would largely determine how big a card i get.
    some emulators work with zip files, others don’t.

    also, what controller works with this?
    i think pretty much any USB wired controller will work.
    will a wired 360 work?
    yep!
    is anyone trying to get the steam controller to work?
    have a look here – https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=78&t=125804 – not sure if that means it works with retropie but i’d have thought so
