i’m not sure about the D-pad, to me, it looks very uncomfortable

I have 2 problems with these controllers:

  • They tend to break down fast.
  • The d-pad has to be pushed rather far in order for it to register, making diagonals harder to hit than they should be. You can fix this by adding a few layers of tape to the underside of the d-pad though.

They’re OK otherwise, but I recommend getting a converter like the Xtokki PS2-to-360 instead.

Just get the Hori Pad EX2 Turbo.

Does anyone know how the PDP Afterglow PS3 pads are? I love my PS3 controller, but it just keeps randomly disconnecting for some reason, I am looking for a replacement.

The biggest complaint about the madcatz fightpad is that it’s d-pad is “floating” and feels weird.

If you have access to a gaming store see if they have the PDP versus pad and try it out in the box, it uses microswitch buttons and a thumbstick. Its fairly good quality and i was a fan of how it felt. Its not for everyone though.
