    Saitek P2500 :confused:
    Probably I'll go with Logitech ones like Rumblepad, Dual Actỉon, or Cordless Rumblepad
    They look good :D

    I have gotten to where I stay away from Logitech. I have used the Logitech Dual Action and the Logitech Rumblepad 2. The analog stick on both went out in 3-6 months. :banghead:

    I have used the Saitek for over a year now, and never had a problem.

    @JATownes: Hardcore stuff. I guess I won't kill those analog in at least 1 and a half year :D

    yea, maybe it is just me. I do game rather hard. :D

    Edit: I just did a little googling, and I am apparently NOT the only one. It seems the left analog stick goes out rather often. Link

    i just use a regular wired 360 controller. at least you know all the console ports will support it properly.
