I never had any problems with the controls. I had a MS Sidewinder that worked great before they introduced the analog features. Then I bought the Logitech Dual Analog pad, and that turned out to be crapped, but Madden 2003 worked great on it. When MVP 2004 came out the dual analogs started giving me trouble, turns out there's a known defect. So I ended up getting a Saitek P800 and that worked great with MVP.
I'm not worried with the controls. Also my tv and xbox is in my room so I'll still be on my computer chair
This will be my first year not buying madden for the PC. I've owned Madden every year of it's existence on the PC. I'm not sure why I'm buying ESPN and Madden, but because ESPN is so cheap, and with this coupon applying to Madden it's like getting 2 games for the price of 1.
