Finally got my raspberry pi3, added the usb quirk and everything worked first time.
For anyone not use to using the terminal for finding the cmdline to add the usb quirk,
The easiest way is as follows:
1: put your sd card into the pc or laptop and open the files.
2: Open the cmdline file.
3: at the end of the line tap space then enter the usb quirk.
If your going to input lsusb to find your controller number its best to unplug everything from the USB ports and just leave your controller USB and keyboard connected, much less confusing then.
