I hadn't checked the site with the USB joysticks out in a bit. I went ahead and bought 4 of them!

Don't mention it. I want everyone who can and desires to obtain (at least) one. I already have two Atari 2600 joysticks (From Flashback 2) connected via RetroUSB adapters (From when they were still making them). The joystick is comfortable and makes a big difference with many classic arcade games - Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, etc. Ditto for use with Stella and CCS64/Vice. A gamepad does not even come close to the experience. Having this new controller takes the adapter need away and it already comes with the USB cable. It really is a fantastic deal!

I grew up using the original Atari controllers. The only other joystick I consider decent is the Wico bat-style joystick. The Atari sticks kept breaking and the Wico never failed. Damn it's a beast!

One other comment - who decided that the joystick had to be on the left and the buttons on the right? I much prefer the joystick on the right and the buttons on the left, but controllers like that are almost nonexistent.
