Re: My novelty controllers.

The only thing I noticed is that I do have a Virtual Boy and I have two "NiGHTS" controllers (one black and one off-white). I consider them standard controllers though, thus why I didn't mention them. I have other slightly unique controllers like the SBOM (Saturn Bomberman) controller and the Street Fighter Tournament Edition stick and such, but again I fit them in the realm of standard controllers.

A few other things will be corrected when I get around to posting the pictures (I'll say tomorrow so that I have to stick to my word).

Also, if you want me to add sections or anything I'm fine with that. Like I can give you pages, host stuff for you. I'd love to get as much data as I can

I have a friend who claims he has an expensive/rare Silent Scope light gun with a built in LCD scope that works on Dreamcast and has offered to sell it to me. He has yet to bring it over to show me though.

Now I doubt it exists cause I've never heard of it, nor found anything about it on google but I would LOOOOVE to be wrong.

I'm also in talks with some company who is interested in building 2 of the other controller ideas of mine from http://sites.google.com/site/neotechni/Home/hires

Ergo-Shock
-A silicone skin or plastic clip-on thing for Dualshock3 controllers to make the handles as big as Proto-Shock's or shaped more like XBOX360'. It could even add extra lips to the triggers like the RealTriggers

DualShockPortable
-A device that plugs into PSP's USB port (or the 1x/2x/3x series' remote ports, using the pikey plugin if it must), to give it a full USB port and bluetooth so it can sync with and use PS3 devices (Controller, Microphone headset, Keyboard, Mouse)

Hopefully they aren't just jerking me around.

Holy crap, have you seen these?

http://www.madcatz.com/E3-2009/Flight.html
http://www.gamingshogun.com/Article/474 ... eview.html

$150 each!!! And the game supports 6 of the screens at once! That's 10*$150=$1500+shipping+duty+etc for the complete experience! (2 other instrument panels there, plus the base stick, and I saw a third instrument panel on ebay, and I think you can add another throttle quadrant for another $100)

I could buy a 7" USB touchscreen for less than one of those 3.5" not-touchscreens, and have 4 instrument panels displayed on it at once. AND I wouldn't need an SDK to develop for it since it would just work like another monitor. Hell, a full sized monitor costs the same amount and would do the work of all of them plus be useful in everything.

I may have did you a disservice by showing you these since you have the stick it attaches to

That is a very nice collection of controllers. If I had all those laying about my wife would kill me :lol:

NeoTechi if you get that Dualshock portable working I will be the first in line. I was going to buy a PSPGo because many stated that this would be an option in the future.

I'm getting to the point where I'm going to just build that.
