PostSubject: Controllers   Mon Aug 03, 2009 2:15 am

So I really need a new one, and will be buying one soon and was just wondering if anybody could recommend a good place to buy them cheaper then the regular stores, as they are like $55 there, and im not spending that much on a controller, ideally i would like to stay around the $30 mark.

Why are they so expensive anyways, is it the bluetooth?

Also if i took apart my current controller, anyone think or know if i could tighten the sticks someway from the inside? this is my main problem right now, the sticks are extremely loose, and the right stick is starting to become unresponsive.

Thnx for any help/input

I really cant think of a place to get them cheaper than regular stores, I guess you could try a gamestop if you wanted to try and get a used one, or even try and get a generic one, other than that I dont know where you could get a cheap one, maybe try ebay

You can buy used Sixaxis controllers at Gamestop.... But they're 39.00 I think, I just went ahead and bought the dualshock for 54.00 because I didn't want to get a worn out controller like I already had.

yea, found best buy gift card and picked up a new one today for $30 Very Happy is on the charger right now and will be good to go in a few hours, the difference in the joysticks is mindblowing, my old one has no resistance whatsoever in the sticks, and they often stick to the left or right, where as the new one the sticks offer resistance and spring right back into place, will have to see how this affects gameplay later when im on.

I think the Logitech wireless controller is only 39.99 new at walmart or gamestop. Also you could go to a game store and find used ones for 15-30 bucks, I actually got the logitech wireless used at gamespot for only 20 bucks. Also check out Ebay, you should be able to get one used for around 25 bucks shipped(Ive sold several on EBAY for around this price.)

I saw only buy sixaxis or dualshock. The cheap gamestop controllers just feel terrible when playing and I personally don't like them.
