Looking for suitable USB joypad for WinUAE

I'm looking for a cheap, CD32-a-like joypad for use with WinUAE.

Would this
Logitech Precision Gamepad from play.com be suitable?

Ta!

i have no experience of the logitech, so cant comment on that.

Hungry Horace's suggestion is really good: I use an USB adapter too and you can find around some very nice PS2 controllers, cheaper and better than the original from Sony

Yeah I expect a PS controller and adaptor would be pretty good, but the cables at the back of my machines are a big enough rats' nest as it is without adding extra adaptory bits

I took a punt on the Logitech for 1 on eBay, I'll let you know how I get on

I use a wireless XBox 360 controller with WinUAE, which works perfectly.

Quite pricey though, compared to other options, because you need to not only buy a 360 controller, but the wireless interface too. If you've already got a 360 though, it's quite a cheap option.

if there were good pc and mac drivers, i would probably buy one of the dualshock 3's - even though i dont have a ps3!

they are lovely... my brother got one on import and i love the classic playstation pad design.

Yeah it is a shame that the dual-shock version isn't out yet. More a shame there are no decent PC drivers.. esp one that would support it through a bluetooth device..

Same as the remote.. it'd be cool to use my PS3 remote with my pc!
