    I can manipulate a ps3 controller somewhat with my c6 claws. Some games I've had to play on easy (uncharted) or with cheats (GTA4) and I can't compete very well on line. Fallout 3 was fine though. So was Gran Turismo 4, Need For Speed and Final Fantasy 12 on the PS2. I know there's an adapted controller for the ps2 but it's crazy expensive.

      C5 quad here... I use the standard ps3 controller.... at work so I can't put an image but I lie my sliding board on my lap with a thin towel wrapped around it as the "table" with traction/friction while sitting back on my wheelie bars.... I glued together some EPP foam I had from an old foamy rc airplane (you can buy it at hobby shops) to make like a platform that sat in the middle of the controllers underside to keep it stable, level, and with the buttons not contacting the sliding board underneath, but that sat on the sliding board... thend just sit the controller on it and play...... the L1/L2 and R1/R2 buttons are still tricky at times to press efficiently due to dexterity issues but its managable for most games.....I try obviously to use in game controller button mappings that keep most inputs on the top 4 buttons tho to make it easiest

        my c5-6 son uses a controller that we bought from a company called gimpgear it is a little big but he is able to keep up with his able friends using it.unfortunately it was about $1,000.00 bucks but worth every penny.this controller can be used for ps-3 xbox and just about any other system.ours is set up with all hand controls except two switches he operates with the back of his head.

            Just get an arcade stick. The kind people uses for fighting games like Street Fighter. It doesn't work for games the require constant use of both analog sticks, but it's great for everything else. Think I paid $70 for mine.

                What games do you play with that? I used to use a controller like that for the ps2. I mostly played Madden but stopped when they added QB vision. Now that it has been removed I've thought about getting a ps3 and getting Madden 10. It would be nice if there were a few more games I could play using the arcade stick.

                      Will these Game controllers work on a Office Computer ? That is lets say a HP ?

                      I've never played nintendo but I am asking if these controllers can plug into a pc I am new to Nintendo and never seen the actual plug part .

                        What kind of games do you play? I love first person shooters... Anyone play call of duty mwf2 with the 'special' controllers or can you keep up w/ a standard one?

                          Maybe I'll give using a standard controller another try. I tried years back when I first got the ps2 and the problems I ran into were; the controller sliding around a lot, and because of not having feeling in the hands not knowing when if I hit the button or not.

                          So any tips at all would be appreciated.

                            C4-C5 quad uses mouthsick to mash buttons and hand(like driving wheelchair) on a arcade stick. I'm going to try a standard controller with mouthstick.There is only one arcade stick with all control found on a standard Xbox360 controller and it is hard to find.

                              We are basically referring to game consoles like XBOX360 and PS3. For computer gaming I use a trackball and keyboard. You can use a XBOX360 on a computer because it is USB but for what?
