    Default Wireless DC Controllers from DOCS?



    Anyone ever seen these before? I just bought a set of 2 from goatdan here on DP, and I can't find ANYTHING AT ALL on the net about them. I've never seen anything like em. They almost look like those proto GC controllers that surfaced a while back. They take 4 AAA batteries each, and have NO manufacturing info anywhere on the controllers. Has anyone ever seen these in a store or anything? I'm curious if they were even released anywhere. I can't find em on Google, nor on eBay...

    But now at least my rabbits won't eat my DC controllers!

    Heyya

    Glad you like them. From what my knowledge is, Doc's released them for an all-together too expensive cost, and didn't sell many. They are actually listed in the DP Rarity Guide:

    I think they are rarer than a three though. I had seen them once before picking those up for you, in a GameStop in Illinois.

    I have never seen those either before. I was just thinking today though while cleaning my DC, I looked at my wavebirds and thought how cool it would have been to have a pair of DC wireless controllers, if there was such a thing.
    I guess there is, but are they any good though??

    I do like em...they're just damned weird. Very strange setup and feels odd at first. They seem to work fine though...buttons are just in VERY odd places..as is the stick. I didn't even look in the online rarity guide...I'm a dumbass

    They're definitely different! Must have been a VERY limited release...and thanks again!

    One thing that confuses me... The online rarity guide says they are based on the Nuby controllers, but I've never seen Nuby controllers that look anything like those. Has anyone?

    And from the two minutes that I spent playing around with them before sending them, I felt the same way about them. At first, they were really weird, but then the placement was sorta okay. If they had been designed to look at all better -- even the godawful AstroPad sold like crazy -- they probably would've had a much bigger impact on the market.

    I must be the only one then that actually likes how they look? I obviously can't speak for how they feel, since I've never handled them, but I think they look cool. I'd love to have a set of those myself.

    Any ideas on what the best wireless controller for the DC is? I love wireless controllers (use wavebird, logitech precisions for both PS2 and XB), and I would love to have a really good wireless DC controller.
