    To be honest mate it always seems to be that the official pads are usually the best and most expensive I might add.

    I got a Videologic one and although it's purple, it's not as good as the official one.

    The main thing is how comfortable it is, the Official one is LOADS more comfortable to use so, thats mine and the kids use the unofficial one! :D

    Stick to original pads mate since they will offer better precision (just compare a 3rd party pad against Nintendos on Super Monkey Ball for the acid test).

    If you need a pad for fighting games though... Then my advice would be to buy a JoyBox - A Gamecube to PSX/2 pad adapter. A joybox with an original PSX pad would be your best bet for 2D and 3D fighting games. The PS2 pad has a pressure sensitive D-Pad... Not good for instant reactions due to the increased pressure needed to register a move.

    Would have been even better if it supported Sega Saturn pads too (Mark II of course). Still Capcom might release an official fighting pad for their games and if we're lucky it could be the same ones as the PSX and Saturn versions. Hori also made a top fighting pad.
