The Cube? I think Fischer Price made the controllers for the Gamecube! They are junk! I guess to each his/her own........
I don't know who made the PS2 controller. Whoever it was is very smart because they managed to produce something that odd to use and then convince the general gaming public that it was the way things should be. Why in the world should the most comfortable position (where the d-pad is) be given to the d-pad when it's been years since that was the default control option? That's just silly. The Dreamcast, GameCube, and Xbox (and now 360) controller designers all realized that ages ago. Like I said, perhaps it's just the way I've gotten used to 3D, but I really can't see prefering the PS2 pad.
thats what ive been screaming for years, the button layout is ok i suppose, but the analog sticks are terrible, they were an addon from the original design, and they have yet to make the switch
