I want one of this, looks fantastic (sega saturn like), this controler is AWSOME, if i coud buy i will buy right in this second...my rating for this controler is "6"
I picked one of these up today and modded the breakaway cable to USB so I could use it with my PC, but if I want to use it on an Xbox, I can just swap out the breakaway. I absolutely LOVE it for playing classic games. It has a very old school feel to it, but with a fresh look. The graphics on the box and controller are spectacular, and the comic book is totally rad! I played Street Fighter for Genesis with it, and it just felt so right! The D-pad and other buttons feel very solid, so I think this controller will last me a long time. I've always liked Nuby's products. I'll definitely be picking up another one of these Street Fighter controllers for Xbox! (Probably Guile!)
If I were to change anything about the controller though, I would change the surface finish for the grey/blue part of the body and the D-pad and buttons to a textured surface. They are shiny smooth surfaces now, which is okay, but I would prefer a textured surface myself, or at least a less-slippery surface. The back of the pad is actually perfectly surfaced, like a GameCube controller is.
I was very disappointed by this controller. When I first saw it I had high hopes for it. I was expecting near Saturn controller quality. Boy was I wrong. The controller does not even perform to the level of its PS2 counter parts. It feels cheep and the directional pad is a nightmare. I was not able to consistently pull of special moves. I was better off with the stock S-controller. But the packaging is nice and it does bring an Udon comic. If it were priced at $10-$15 I would probably purchase all 3 of them just to collect them, but never to use as a serious fighting pad.
