Yeah, I'm debating on it, 25 bucks hmmmm.

Anyone near Denmark? There is a DUAL ANALOG for sale.
I don't think the seller knows about this controller.

EDIT
Never mind someone snagged it already, sheesh that was quick.

I wonder if this is worth mentioning. I found a local pawn shop today and picked up a copy of Castlevania:Portrait of Ruin complete and in great condition for 9 dollars

I bought a minty Hexen (Sega Saturn) for $5, when I saw a pile of Saturn games amongst one of those sidewalk sales where people sell used books and DVDs and other junk.

But the real kicker is, I talked to the guy running the table to gauge how often he sells video games, and to figure out whether it's worth it to make a habit of walking past him on my way to lunch.

So he tells me that he has a brisk trade in video games, and that he just sold a boxed Atari 2600 with some sealed games to some guy for $30.

That's when I walked away weeping.

Okay went back and got R.O.B. Also picked up a Macally clear blue trakball for 5 bucks. Very fast response for Mame Centipede compared to my Logitech trakball.

Full story at Bloodandbourbon's R.O.B. link. Lotta info there, my story at the bottom.

I've heard that these are pretty good, can I get a pic for reference? I've wanted a trackball to emulate SegaSonic The Hedgehog for ages.

Its just like this one. USB with Left User and Right Menu click buttons. Mouse can still be plugged in, choice of using either. Amazed how quick the arrow moves across compared to my logitech marble trakball. Inside has the two sensor wheels like an older ball mouse.

Visited Washington state a few weeks ago and visited a collector's game shop. Picked up Dragon Force for the Saturn for $50.
