I was wondering if there were any extra long controllers out there... I was looking for something in the 15-20foot range.

Tried wireless, but there are too many problems with them for the kids to play with.

buy an extender cable...i think they come in 3 feet & 6 feet varieties...i suppose you could use more than 1 extension cable if just 1 isn't long enough.....i'm not sure tho how much loss of performance you'll get using multiple extension cables to reach your 20 foot range

and have you tried the 2.4ghz wireless controllers? they have a range of 50' from what i understand, and can be set to multiple channels to reduce interference.

Thanks, will look.

A buddy of mine has 3 kids... and a bif screen TV downstars he doesn't want them to be too close to. He said that his wireless (whatever they were) didn't perform well.

As the controller ports are USB 1.1 i think they have a mx lenght of 5 meters (USB 2 max length is 5m)
I justt got a Madcatz wireless controller for 25, and its very good, responsive, well designed ect...
