    Hi guys’ n’ gals,

    I’m considering re-investing part of the cash I made from flogging my DSs (“booo”, I hear) into a 2-player X-Arcade controller. Anyone here has (had) one? Are they as good as the hype suggests?

    Usage would be MAME & Gamecube Ikaruga/SoulCalibur2/Bust-A-Move All Stars, mostly… for now. :D

    On a totally different topic, any news/suggestions about the August shindig?

    $150 before shipping is a bit pricey for a controller

    It’s not cheap, granted. But I’m thinking of the durability and re-useability of the thing (PC/GC/PS1/PS2/XB and possibly next-gen). It’s out of my disposable income anyhow, better $150 on that than on a one-time slap-up meal, CDs or DVDs…

    I was thinking about getting one of these myself recently… they look great…

    I notice they have free shipping at the moment – do you know if that covers Ireland?

    I currently use old PS2, N64, and GC joypads for PC arcade play.
    I really love the ergonomics of the GC pad, so I use that a lot. The N64 is handier for fighting games where you need 6 buttons.

    I’d guess that ps3 etc will be backwards compatible controller wise.

    I see they are charging 20$ per adaptor – that’s a little pricey!

    I’ve sent them an email yesterday asking just that! :D

    Note sure about that – check that story (unconfirmed yet, I believe). Time will tell, but between PS MAME, GC (SCII) and DC (for schmups) already, that’ll be plenty enough gaming for me with that beast, thanks :lol:

    I’d be grateful if you’d tell me what they say about postage to Ireland.

    I think the single player one actually looks like a good deal, at the reduced price – especially if the postage is free. e65 for a high quality joystick.
