    My hand reflexively cramped on seeing that picture, thanks Bit Tech.
    Wired controllers are the best, one less thing to keep track of the charging cable and batteries.

    Also, you can garrote screen watchers with them.

    Man, I love that screen. I'd love to see this done with the S pad. The problem with the original wasn't size, it was the button slant. Instead of a nice 15-degree slope, or even the 45-degree diamond that is now standard, they did something like 80. It was like a Saturn pad held sideways.

    The Duke was a better fit for my Big Meaty Claws than the later controllers, but sticking the left analog stick where the D-Pad should be? No thanks, I'll stick with the DS2 as my wired gamepad of choice.
