Hmm...I still prefer the arcade stick from the Dreamcast.

I assume this is not wireless?  Also, is MS going to release an official wireless one?

Microsoft refuses to license the wireless technology for whatever reason to third parties. The Guitar Hero controller as of right now will be wired when it comes out for the 360.

That's why I assumed it was not wireless.  icon_biggrin

No problem.  I was sort of asking for confirmation on that fact anyway.  You have delivered.  Now, I need to know if MS is making one or not.

I've been playing a ton of UMK3 lately and that thing does not look like it is sturdy enough for a game like that.  Oh well, I usually prefer a regular controller to an arcade stick anyway.  Too bad the dpad on the 360 controller is so bad frown

I have 2 of the DOA arcade sticks for the 360, they work very very well.  You can also custom order sticks if you really want one.  I use the sticks for all the retro games and for SFII

X-Arcade needs to make a wireless controller (or adaptor).
