Tempted to pull trigger on a 360 Controller
Anyone wanna talk me out of it? Since I don't have a 360, I plan to use it mainly for use with Dreamcast and Gamecube emulation (action-adventure games, mainly). I really want the wireless one (which can also function as a wired pad).

In the past, I've read this pad is the most comfortable one to hold in recent memory. I've even held it in my hands at Walmart and was genuinely impressed. There is even a thread about its greatness right now on Neogaf. The biggest complaint, of course, is the d-pad. The d-pad shouldn't be an issue at all since I will use it for the analog. The second biggest complaint: it's not ideal for non-shooting games (as in, so-so). Is this particularly true? I believe it has to do with the layout and tightness of the analog thumbsticks? If the pad is really just so-so for action-adventures, I might as well just stick with my Dreamcast pad w/converter. The third complaint is the pad is made of cheap parts. I remember the pad feeling solid in my hands, but I don't know if this is an indicator of quality in this case.

The other analog pad I've been seriously considering is this: http://games.onli...controller . I briefly entertained an N64 pad and Gamecube pad, but decided against, for personal reasons. I don't really care for the PS3 pad (which I've held in my hands at Walmart, and was uncomfortable).

I'd get the new version of the 360 controller with the much improved D-pad if I were you. Then you'll be set. It's a fantastic and very easy to set up PC controller. I also have an adapter that allows me to use PS2 controllers on my PC, and that only cost me like $3 on Ebay so if money is an issue I'd recommend going that route instead.
Thanks. Smile

Money is indeed an issue. New pads are so damn expensive these days.
I let someone borrow my corded 360 controller before moving away from Atlanta and well... never got it back. So while being back in Texas I purchased another one just so I could use it on Phantasy Star Online 2. I couldn't be more happier. It's a great PC controller.
