I'm one of these old guys still stuck on the PS2 for gaming, well my controllers finally became unusable after much abuse. I looked at some of the replacement controls at local toy stores but I just wasn't ready to pay almost thirty dollars for a controller. The next week I came across these on the one of the normal midnight missions to Wally World. It came in a plain yellow box, it just said "Pelican PS2 corded". When I got the price check for nine ninety seven, I got two of them. I had my doubts but I also had a video game addiction to feed so try the I did. They turned out to be great maybe just a little smaller, just by feel than the standard Sony and maybe a little lighter. I see no difference in performance I would and will recommend these to all the PS2 owners I know. I would and also will buy these again when mine can finally no longer stand the abuse.
