    Wireless Game Controller

    I'd imagine this has been asked but I didnt find it...

    Is there any good generic wireless gaming controller?

    I'd be interrested in playing older games on my mii10000: NES, SNES, N64 Emulators, PC Games like Tetris and stuff.

    Also anyone know of a good 2-player PC version of tetris?

    You can get a wireless Playstation or PS2 controller and a Playstation-USB adaptor and use that, or get a wireless XBOX controller and modify the cable so it plugs into USB (Xbox uses USB protocol, just a different connector). AFAIK, Windows XP will detect the Xbox controller as a standard USB HID device and won't need drivers, but I could be wrong.

    xbox 360

    The xbox 360 controllers use bluetooth and are detected by windows. Probably the easiest option.

    The Logitech is a great controller. Have them in my car. Works perfectly with the embedded emulator in Mobil Impact.

    only if you want to do things other than play games with it.
