I want a controller to play all of my games on my computer with that is like the xbox controller, but all I can find are controllers that are like the PS2 controllers. Can anyone help me out, because playing Halo and my roms suck with the keyboard and mouse.

I can't see how playing Halo is easier for you with a controller, but meh. Find a PC-Xbox USB converter somewhere, or if you can't, make your own.

Uh... you do know that the mouse-keyboard combo is many times better than any gaming controller, dont you?

While youre looking for a game controller, can you check their prices on trackballs? I want to replace my mouse with it for ESF.

And way cool with the USB/Xbox conversion!

well I have used a converter unit (you plug a console controller into the unit and then plug it in to a usb port) and it worked ok , but i didn't use it alot (only once i can remeber) can't remeber the name of it though , my brother found it in eb a long time ago i think , it was for 64/psx controllers.

Yeah, they don't seem to work well. I tried it with every racing game I got and it still doesn't work well. I think it's only for the Mac.

I saw other ones at Fry's Eletronics, maybe you haven't heard about it, but one of the greatest eletronics store I have ever been to. I'll check the prices there. :O EDIT:

They're the same ones as on the website, but they're different and compatible on the website. They cost a good of 15 dollars for 1 plug, or 20 dollars for a second extention.
