Spoilers then. I have a spinner and three, count 'em, three trackballs. One trackball was purely coincidental though (wasn't actually trying to get it). I shall say no more.

Why?

Curious about these trackballs? Do they have names I can add to your listing?

That 8 bit star mouse looks... interesting, but painful to use for more than 2 minutes.

The skinny blue controller to the right of the chainsaw one looks sort of interesting though. especially with the triggers on the inside grips.

Ah, the FPS Master. Those are actually the face buttons. It also has actual triggers

I have two of those - one for the PS2 and one for the original Xbox.

Also, I have a PS2-to-PS3 adapter and a PS2-to-Xbox 360 adapter so that I can use the FPS Master on all the awesome PS3 and 360 games. Works amazingly well (even Rumble!). Games feel a lot more immersive

This new "GameGun" controller looks promising though. Would like to give that a test run

Ah, man, the Virtual-On controllers!

Cool collection; I'm envious.

After nine months and many broken promises, the topic has finally been updated, with plenty of new pictures. See the original post for the update.

Warlords, is that the game where it's like pong, but instead of protecting a side of the screen you're protecting an Arkanoid-like grid of blocks that you move around all 4 sides?

If I'm right, then there was a Warlords clone hidden in the Making of Lunar disc that came with Lunar 1 on PS1. That game was awesome, supported up to 8 players. And they could be AI or human via 2 multitaps. You could change all the variable such as speed, size of blocks/paddles, amount of balls, etc.

I'm not pleased that your new additions puts you pretty close to my count...
I've added your new ones to the list.

Also, there is a game for DS that you may be interested in. Easy Piano.

Your number is safe. I'm running out of justifications for controllers. My wife bawled when she saw my controllers laid out yesterday. "You have this many?!" :)

I've seen the piano DS thing before. There's also the Band Hero bundle for DS, which I'd be curious about if the music didn't suck so much. I think I've all the portable attachments I need, really.

I'm actually curious about WiiWaa, the Wii Remote controlled stuffed animal game. I think my kids would enjoy it, and it's pretty damn original, if it works anywhere near as well as the trailer implies.

Aside from that and the few things I mentioned on the first post, my cup runneth over.

Oh, and yeah, Warlords is four player pong. One of the best multiplayer games ever made. I've played the Lunar version before, though honestly I'd forgotten about it. It's not the same without a paddle though.
