I'd like to use four XBox 360 controllers to play with friends (local/offline).

Is it possible?

Did you not ask this exact same question yesterday (swap fifa 12 for pes 12)? It got closed. – jumping_code Jun 13 '12 at 16:47
@danRhul The first question was closed because it started off as a list game recommendation style question. It was then edited to just ask if FIFA and PES (PC) support 4 gamepads and Mulmoth was directed to ask two separate questions which is why this question is here. The other question currently has 4 reopen votes because it is a valid question now. – Adanion Jun 13 '12 at 17:03
Being at Stack Overflow since over 2 years, I'm a little bit astonished how hypercritical this community is in comparison. This seems a very valid and interesting question to me. So why downvote it? Because it misses the Diablo-3 tag? – Zeemee Jun 13 '12 at 21:28
@pixel No, it isn't. These are two seperate games. – Zeemee Aug 20 '12 at 13:55
@Mulmoth you're right - sorry – kalina Aug 20 '12 at 13:57

Yes, it is possible to play with up to four controllers in local multiplayer. Be sure to check the "DirectInput" option on the "Controllers" if you want to use several XBox-360 controllers on one PC (see this thread).
