Standard, out-of-the-box controllers are for those of you who are still waiting for your "pimp cards" in the mail.
You can go for a normal wireless controller, like the Foundtech Airstyle (39.95):
50-hr battery life, 30ft. range.
The Logitech Xbox Wireless Controller (59.95) is high quality, but cannot be used with Xbox Live (most wireless controllers don't work well with Live anyway, due to data transmission requirements):
50 hours of battery life with rumble on, 100+ with rumble off. Range: 15-20 feet.
Or the Wavebird ($34.95), from Nintendo:
100-hours of Battery life, 50 ft range.
But you know, where's the fun in that? Why not go a little flamboyant?
These are for the median gamer:
|Row 0 - Cell 0||Row 0 - Cell 1|
|Spider-Man stares at you||A Pirate stares at you|
|Row 3 - Cell 0||Row 3 - Cell 1|
|Look! Wasn't that guyin American Psycho?||More DoA goodness!|
|Row 6 - Cell 0||Row 6 - Cell 1|
|Ka...Me...Ha...!||Mighty Mega Man|
