I'm sure I'm not the only one out there who absolutely hates the Controller S. Are any 3rd party manufacturers making controllers based on the "duke" design rather than the "S"? My original controllers are beginning to break after 3 and a half years of abuse, and I don't want to be stuck with those tiny POSes.

Wireless would be preferred, but basically I'm looking for anything where the back, start, black, and white buttong are in usable locations (i.e. not behind my thumb knuckle).

I'm like you. I hate the S controllers.

I bought my box today, and traded a neighborhood kid for his big controller.

Sorry guys, not in the market for one just yet. One of mine is still fully functional, and the other just has a break in the insulation on the wiring. I was just asking right now to get an idea if there was any hope for fans of the big one.

What don't you like about the D-Pad? Personally I think the smoother surface of the big one's d-pad helps when entering cheats and such.

This seems like a nice niche market.....time to look up costs on plastic injection molding...

I haven't found anywhere in the UK, occasionally i've found one in good condition second hand at GAME stores (they sell em nice and cheap too cos no one wants them).

It's such a shame M$ stopped making them... mad.gif
