    [​IMG] Slightly Imperfect IR
    Mad Catz Wireless Remote

    In my opinion third party controllers a rarely any good (a side from Hori ones) and I should know I have been gaming for about 25 years

    Madkatz made them Street fighter controllers for 360 and PS3 and ther ment to take a hammering

    Witch makes sense when you think of how many [​IMG] people do.

    But I still say that Hori are the best third party thing maker

    holy crap. thats an insane review.
    are you like professional or someting?

    and i will never EVER buy third party controllers ever again. Ever since I bought a third party wireless gamecube controller to play mario kart wii on, my perspective has changed. The controller was HUGE, it could barely fit in my hands and the battery life was about 1 day. I now have to go back sitting inches from the TV with my corded gamecube controller. I will never buy third party controllers again. Ever

    :thumbsup:
