No, the d-pad is much more like the 6-button pad than the original pad. I don't have my 6-button right here at the moment to compare, but it's nothing like the stiff pad on the standard controllers. It's smaller and has that nice, smooth "roll" to it as you move it around.

Awesome, I'll still have to see if I can find some around town so I can check 'em out first.
Thanks!

I need to find that, my saturn 3rd party's worked great but all of the sudden, BAM, it stopped working...

I finally won mine on ebay. One of my initial posts back in March was asking about first party wireless genesis controllers, and I've been looking on ebay since. Some have popped up, but often times they were only selling one controller, or one time the receiver was missing. I was willing to buy them with a system and resell the system, but finally found an auction last week that the guy relisted for me at a great BIN price.

Fingers crossed they work, but he sent me pictures via email and I doubt I'll have problems as the work done on the controller bottoms was to keep the player 1 and player 2 positions in place.

That's a really good deal for the wireless controllers you got. I've got Acclaim's and I absolutely love them. Now I've got to find myself one of those Genesis 3 models because as someone said before "That's just plain sexy" I love the minimalist look of it.

Keeping my fingers crossed that they work moto.

The controllers worked flawlessly, now what to do with those 7 genesis board games and sports titles haha.

Wireless receiver looks kind of ugly on my model 2, I'll have to see how it looks on the model 1, if so I might be giving the model 2 the boot.

Just want to confirm that the sega cdx plus two controller extensions and wireless controllers work flawlessly if any is interested in going that route.

I see one on ebay, new in box. What is the range i should expect it to go for at the moment it is about $12, with a few days left.

Average price is around 15 dollars plus shipping for two controllers and receiver. I bought mine used for around that price, but depending on the condition, it might be pricier.

Yes, you can use a multi tap with this and it works just fine. I do this for my CDX.
