    why not just get a USB adpter and use a Dual shock Playstation controller. A proven design, and "most" people already own the controller. Works for me.

    You could probably buy a PS2 controller, independent of actually owning a PS2. That is, if you really wanted to do this.

    I will second this.


    The only thing I wish it had was four buttons on top as opposed to the two big ones. I need more to play GTA, gotta zoom to snipe....... :dead:

    The FireStorm Dual Power 3 from Thrustmaster is a great gamepad. Good weight, numerous programmable buttons. Between Logitech and Thrustmaster you can't go wrong.
