Which controller is the best?
This topic is locked from further discussion.
I have had 8 controllers total in my PS2 lifetime: 2 wired, 6 wireless. Each controller has been from a different company, and to this day, every single wireless has broken while the wired work still. I use the original PS2 controller and have never had any problems, so steer away from wireless. Note: I am not as "hardcore" as you would think. I keep very good care of my stuff, but every wireless gets mutilated.NALDOxCORE
Hmm... I have the opposite experience. I have two of the Logitech ones I mentioned above. both are lasting me for several years now; and this is with me logging hundreds of hours on them (just a sample: 200+hours on DMC3, 10 playthoughs of RE4, 4 times though MGS3:Subsistence, 100 hours on Persona 3).
I personally recommend the Logitech Cordless Action controller. It has a similar size as the dual shock controller, an awesome D-pad (which IMO is better than the DS2's d-pad), and great battery life. On average, batteries (2x AA) run around 50 hours with rumble/vibration, easily over 100 hours with rumble/vibration off.jt4mtb
Agreed. Only problem is that the face buttons (X, O, Tri, Sq) tend to stick sometimes, but only when used a lot (i.e. Mega Man X Collection ruined my first Logitech).
I've gone through several of the Logitech Wireless controllers. Here's my take:
Pros: excellent battery life, perfect size, slightly textured grips, very good range, no lag, no interference problems, very good rumble, very sturdy construction.
Cons: face buttons will occasionally get stuck (the main reason for replacing 2 of my controllers), only comes in one color - black. That makes it hard to remember which controller is #1.
I've tried some other cheaper controllers, and they really felt flimsy - like if I gripped them too hard they would snap. Plus I'm not a big fan of the garish colors and designs for most of the off-brand controllers. I like the basic black.
