Since I bought my Playstation 2, I've just been using the corded controller that came with the game console. I figured it was about time to go wireless and and get another one. I purchased this wireless controller the same time I purchased my dvd wireless for my PS2 and got a great deal on both! As you can see by the photo, this wireless is black and looks much like the Sony models out there. It is the Gamestop brand and is the same size and feel of the Sony. It has all the same buttons, toggles, etc. and sports the Gamestop name / logo. The back opens up to reveal the battery compartment which takes 2 AA batteries. After having used this, even though it's been very good on my batteries and not going through them quickly, I recommend buying rechargeable batteries just to save on the costs in the long run. It also comes with the dongle device used to plug into the controller port so the wireless controller can connect to your game console. If you love your PS2, I'm sure you'll love having one of these once you give it a try.
