Still just a gamepad

Whoever said that a PS2 controller was just a controller doesn't know about the Extreme Action Controller from Logitech.

Taking it perhaps a tad too far, the latest controller features leather padding and gold-plated connectors. Other than that, this is your standard PS2 controller with four buttons, four shoulder buttons, two analogue sticks and a D-pad. The controller also features vibration feedback and a turbo on and off switch. Those with a large lounge will appreciate the rather long 2.9m cable making it possible to once again sit in comfort on the sofa.

Verdict

This controller is a tad excessive in its offering - who would really want leather grips and gold plating connectors - but for only £20 you can’t really grumble. Comfortable to hold, no one can complain that this model isn’t for the gamer who has everything.
