dont suppose you can get much better xD (FFFFFFUUUUUU 'please wait 6-8 weeks for confirmation')
I got one from there a lllong time ago (back when it was Live Search Club and no one had used bots etc) and I gotta admit its a great controller for 3D era games. (PS, N64, etc) But for anything before that that used d-pads, its terrible. The d-pad on this thing is terrible.

I hook up my Gamecube pad to my USB ports using a trio linker plus, it's great for N64 emu.
For everything 2d I hook up my SNES pad with a retroUSB adapter, and I love it.

I was just about to post that link. I got that controller a couple weeks ago in the mail it does take 1-2 months for them to ship it out but its free and I found a bot that plays the game and gets massive amounts of tickets for you.

Had mine for over a couple years now no issues. Used it as a mouse in bed until that comp had serious hardware problems....
working on that. N64 emulators with it is a little tricky but psx, snes, gba, genesis, gbc/gb and anything else pretty much is great.
After a few minutes of using it with easy joy mouse 3.0 you'll be happy you bought it for sure.

I picked up a Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller For Windows a few months ago and it's pretty awesome, as well as cheap to buy. Since I bought that I've not touched my Saitek controller (which is still a great pad, but the 360 controller pwnz it). It's the exact same controller as what you get for the 360, but it's just got a different end. If you've got the proper cable you can use it with a standard 360.

I use an old Xbox controller for anything that requires analog input, and a snes controller for anything needing a d-pad.
The xbox controller uses a simple usb mod (xbox uses usb with different connectors) and the snes one used a chip from someplace on the web to convert it to usb.
