Generally the way to go with retro controllers is to buy the actual controller and either mod it to support USB, or buy an adapter. raphnet is fantastic for getting adapters.

There was a USB version officially sanctioned by SEGA a while back that sells for upwards of $200 now, I hear they're perfect.

You can also get the newer SEGA Play controllers, which are basically Saturn controllers with a really ugly color scheme, on the cheap.

Or just go the controller + adapter route, which shouldn't run you any more than $50, which is the cost of a modern 360 or PS3 controller anyway.

It actually gets quite messy in that drawer if I DON'T use something to fix the cords. There are a variety of video cables underneath the pads as well.

The Japanese pads are rubberbanded because that's how they were when I bought them, and you can see that the normal eu/us black pad is just thrown there for the sake of the picture because it has a loose cord (it's my main pad for my Saturn).

No, because no matter where your palm has to rest in order to reach all of the buttons, it will fill your hand.

I'll never understand this. The only thing it's good for is games specifically made for the GC, everything else feels awkward as fuck.
L, R and Z feel awkward and you have to press real hard, not just casually like any other shoulder button ever. The analog and pad are alright but why the fuck are they placed like that? I enjoy using a pad in 3D and fighting games, whenever possible, this one seems to be designed only with modern games in mind. The C-stick is fucking weird and pointless, and don't even get me started on the deformed buttons.

Now that's one I don't have. I haven't found any cheapo PS2 Saturns thanks to it being more obvious what it is. Got my mint SLS for a mere 20 bucks and a ton of other stuff because most people don't take note of Sega printed on the USB mold.

Really wish Sega would release a PS360 version. Preferably with with select/home/start where Sega is, change the trigger mapping to L1/L2 & Z/C to R1/R2, along with a switch to change the L1/L2 & R1/R2 mapping to L1/R1 & L2/R2, a switch to change dpad between digital & left/right analog emulation and a switch to change between PS3 & 360 compatibility.

For a while I worked for a charity that recycled 'redundant' IT gear. You wouldn't BELIEVE the number of these things that came through the door. It seems like literally every school and office we cleared out was crammed with the things. We had those big warehouse bulk-bags full of them.

It doesn't have grips like the classic pro, so it's awkward to hold. The buttons are a bit stiff (albeit responsive), and the analog sticks are too far inward.

It's not a bad controller by any means, but he's absolutely right in saying the pro is better.

all shit tier knockoffs

Kockoffs all use inferior plastic shells, that easily flex and are not the same thickness. The dpad molding is widely known for breaking and sticking. They're shit through and through.

However the knockoff PCB does fit inside a REAL Sega Saturn controller. Just gotta swap the microswitches (requires soldering iron) & the reuse of everything but the original PCB.

>ORIGINAL Sega Saturn USB controller
rare and every expensive, you'll never get your hands on one

>SLS Sega Saturn controller
Officially licensed product, but not a perfect clone of the REAL Saturn controller. Plastic molding is not as strong & the texture is not as rough either.

>Mayflash 2 controller Saturn to USB adapter
Use REAL Saturn controllers without buying a knockoff and swapping the guts. Good solution for anyone wanting longer cord space and doesn't mind an extra attachment.

Only if I knew this shit before I got one, though I got two for under ten bucks, but good lord the plastic sucks shit. For the D-pad, one of the directions is no good because the plastic bent out of shape and is breaking off thus I'd have to get a replacement pad. Just not worth my time anymore.

There's a dude on ebay, hit-japan, who is always listing nonworking white & grey Sega Saturn controllers at a fair price. $6.50+s&h get two of them and swap the pcbs. You'll end up with a pair of USB controllers that'll be figuratively better than even a set of SLS controllers. Right now there does not seem to be any listed, but keywords "Sega Saturn JUNK Controller" should bring them up under completed auctions.

I bought one myself and found that the only thing wrong with it is that it was a scuzzy mess. The guys simply did not want to clean it. Which was not a problem since I was taking it apart anyway. Just placed everything inside the sink (make sure nothing gets sucked down the drain!), mixed in some dawn dish washing soap, let it soak for a half hour and clean everything up with an old toothbrush.

BTW you can get away without swapping the microswitches. But you need to take the gel spacers from the knockoff a make them thinner, then stick them to the original's shoulder buttons.


Or you could buy a the Japan exclusive 'cool controller' Saturn controller and gut swap that instead. Shit'd look hot. But I don't think it's worth the money. Start paying too much and you may as well get a SLS or PS2 model.
