    Long story, short. The thumbstick on my Wii drum controller broke a while back and it bugged me to the point that I decided to find a replacement part online. I ordered it, received it, and fixed it. However....

    The part that I received that was advertised as a "reinforced, superior, upgraded control stick" (which in there defense is) was in fact a PS3 analog stick! I paid $9 for something that sells for about $1 on eBay. Derp. I'm really glad I didn't have any broken PS3 controllers laying around or I really would've felt like a yutz!
