Does anyone know the quality of Nuby's controlers is it a good 3d party or just junk ? And is there a announced price to this yet? Design looks pretty cool.

i want one just because it looks so cool!

What's that button under the start button? I sorta make it out as 'Macro'. Macro furries? Macro Machines (they're like Micro Machines except very large and CRUSH). Or maybe it generates a real life Mega Man to get you cola while you play?

I want.

Probably for the other Z button on the left there. Map it to work as one of the other buttons.

....I like it!

Macro probably means you can remap buttons so you can play MMAC properly on this one...

Why do they only add paintjobs for these controllers? How about a completely new design?
