    I have two different emulators for my Droid but they are near impossible to play without a gamepad. Hopefully it is in the works somewhere, the microusb port is in a perfect spot to take advantage of this design.

    Yeah I know, I don't care about the analog sticks either just put a d-pad and 4 buttons and I am happy.

    +1 I want! I know there's a site / company which makes USB adapters to plug in full-sized Nintendo controllers--I wonder if there's a Micro USB one... Have to go hunting for the company later.

    I wonder about the possibility of using a PS3 controller via bluetooth. Someone would have to write a program /drivers to make it work and it would be a little clunky to carry around.

    Yes, but the Dpad is in the wrong spot and the keys on the keyboard are not defined as well as the G1 or anything close to that.

    My thoughts exactly, everything is in an awkward location. Try playing Super Mario World and get back to me.

    Honestly, Id like a game pad as well but thats looking awkward too. Buttons on either side of the D pad? How in the World would that work?

    I would honestly trade in my keypad for a game pad.

    it would be great if we could get a real controller for the droid, especially one that's pluginable... so far i just flip the phone over (so the d-pad is on the left) when playing genesis roms, however the d-pad on the droid itself is horrendous and basically unusable for games, you always hit the 'back' button accidentally and the regular buttons basically suck too and there's too many of them so you often mi**** when in games that require multiple presses quickly (earthworm jim... actually that badly needs and 8-d pad)

    I've seen these before too. Also, you can modify the old Xbox controllers by splicing them into a USB connector and use them on your PC (works great after you install the XBCD drivers). You may be able to splice them into a micro USB connector as well. The drivers probably don't exist, but it's Android so you can make it work if you're savvy enough and then you can share the drivers with everyone else. :icon_ banana:

    the psp came out with a ps2/ps3 style holder for the psp so you could play games on the psp better. it wrapped around the psp, made it feel like you were holding a ps2/ps3 gamepad.

    i could see a folding contraption that you could insert the droid in between the game pad with analog sticks on either side and adequate buttons like a, b, triggers, and what not.

    i would rather not press my keypad buttons too much. i remember playing my playstation and the wear and tear the gamepads went through when i got into the game too much.

    I used to have a thing for my original NES controller. It was a hard case that wrapped around the controller. It had a mini-joystick over the d-pad and I think it had fatter buttons on the A and B buttons. Something like that would work if you had the mini-joystick push the Q,2,E,S buttons (thats the "other" d-pad on my Voyager). And the A B could push the D-pad buttons. You would just need the ability to configure the buttons to do what you wanted.
