Years ago I had a Logitech PlayStation 2 controller that looked like this, though, of course, it was a PS2 controller, not a PC controller. It felt great and was really nice to play with. Unfortunately, its cord frayed and broke inside the plug. I thought I'd like to convert it to wireless, but at the time I had no idea how to do that. I also thought, if I ever did convert it to wireless, it would be nice to make it work with other consoles. Now, I'm less interested in making a wireless controller (though it would be nice) than I am in making a controller that works with any console and, more importantly, has reconfigurable control hardware.
