    I can't give a recommendation, but I would certainly suggest that you avoid the "4 gamers" sold in Game shops for about £40.

    The first one I received (for Christmas) didn't work at all, and the replacement worked for a few days before the receiver stopped responding to anything other than large movements of the analogue sticks. At this point I got my money back!


    On the wavebird front, I have 4 and I have generally been very pleased with them, but I do get occasional dropouts when certain movements of the stick are not recognised (confirmed by the LED not illuminating on the receiver). I'll post a new thread to see if anyone has had this....

    The only problem is, I've already replaced the batteries with nice new duracell ones and I'm still getting the same problem. I guess I could be really unlucky and have duff new batteries..........

    I'll try swapping them out again to be sure.

    Get the Logitech one. Absolutely superb in respect of ergonomics, battery life, usage, etc. They do them for both PS2 and XBox. Superb. About £40 from Dabs, PC World etc.

    I've got the XBOX logitech cordless, and all I can say is its the mutts nutts..

    1. Its way better quality then the original..
    2. The ergo's are excellent, its a superb design, all the buttons are easily at hand... the first controller that has a layout with no drawbacks..
    3. The analogue sticks are awesome, they offer such fine control, amazingly better then the original..

    So if the PS2 one is as good as the XBOX, then it is worth twice its price..

    Don't know if the Hori uses the same tech as the Joytech but they definitely are not the same.

    Hori are a very well respected peripheral maker in the Far East.

    Hori one is awesome on the PS-2 I've got one also.

    Demon - the xbox one - does it support the headseat from the controller also?

    If you haven't bought yet, I tried the PS2 Freewave product form Saitek. Cehck out the web site. the first one I got was faulty but replacement works fine. Sub £40 and you can plugin two controllers. RF works very well.

    Have had Cosmo RF wireless for a month now - haven't played much though. :(
    This is basically the clone of controller-s minus the memory slots in front. Uses 3xAAA batteries that last reasonable amount of time - since I haven't played much can't give exact number.

    The feel and weight is basically same with the virtually identical button layout - the reason I said virtually is the feel of button is bit more clicky compared to S's more softer feel and there's turbo button in the middle. The analog sticks feels the same and apart from the main button needs more firmer push to make contact it's like playing with the controller-S except there's no wire. Actually opened both Cosmo and Controller S to see whether it's possible to swap the buttons and all but although they look similar close inspection reveals there are enough subtle difference that they are not interchangeable - bummer. :p

    The missing memory slots are now located on the receiver block that plugged into Xbox. One silly thing about this arrangement is if you are using XLIVE with its official headset you will need to sit close to Xbox since the headset module is now plugged into the receiver rather than the controller. Suppose given its battery power expecting the memory slots on the controller itself would've been too much without opting the heavy duty battery pack. For XLIVE the wireless headset seems like the sensible option when these are available more widely.

    after playing couple of hours with various titles - PGR2, PoP:SOT, DOA3, SC2 to name a few - it works just like my old controller-S and the freedom the wireless and RF signal gives far more pleasant gaming experience - on top of that no more complaint from my wife. :)

    That sucks. What I'm looking for is a wireless controller with bluetooth built in and a bluetooth headset so that the whole thing
    is wirefree. The number of times I've nearly ripped my ear off or pulled the cable from the console!

    Interested in what oreo boy a bluetooth Xbox/PS2 controller?
    Development costs would be huge for what would always be a small market. Perhaps if the PS3 has Bluetooth on board then it could happen in my opinion Spread spectrum stuff is over rated and in its infancy.

    Having just ordered one as a Xmas gift, the best price I could find on the Logitech controllers is £34.99 from here

    I've had mine now for some months and find it superb, especially as I want to be able to sit in the middle of my lounge rather than where the cable will reach!
