    I actually think this is something that's getting better lately. The advent of wireless controllers as standard for every console makes it much easier to just toss your controller in a drawer or cabinet after you're done, without messy wires to deal with.

    As far as Guitar Hero and DDR, just toss them in a closet. Not that hard. I can see this becoming a problem if we get to the point where there are 15 or 20 huge smash hit games that require custom control devices, but I just can't see that scenario happening. There's always just going to be 2 or 3 at the most, and I think that's plenty manageable. Of course you're always going to have a tiny minority who have to have everything, and those people's significant others will just have to deal with it. Or leave them. Whatever.

    To eject from your mech before it explodes, if you don't then you lose your game save. Also windshield washers.

    Ah yes, the Steel Battalion controller. Has to be one of the worst designed set ups I've ever seen. No concept of orgonomics/ease of use on that thing. I preffer playing Mechwarrior or 4 with a flight sim style stick/throttle/pedals rig. Just as many or more buttons, and I don't have to take my hands off the controls to push any of them.

    I don't know how it would play, but that thing looks bad ass.

    Also, when my wife decides to go through a video game phase, she always leaves the controller on the floor. One PS2 controller, and it pisses me off something fierce, so I can imagine how serious gamers could stress their partners. But whatever, if it's their hobby...

    I know this is a bit off-topic, but when it comes to third party contollers I feel they should add to the game and the overall experience. Nintendo captured this feel VERY well with the Wii and is one of the reasons why I love the system. As for the Steel Batallion controller (for SB 1 and 2) it is meant for the game on XBox or PC, and the game ALSO requires XBox Live. It is not a cheap setup.

    As for the Guitar Hero controller, I think it is AWESOME. I'd love to see it integrated into a Wii game like Drummer Hero (Wiimote, Knunchuk, Foot pedals) for a full on band type setup. I generally love music games such as Parrapa the Rapper, UnJammer Lammy, Elite Beat Agents, Bust-A-Groove 1, and others.

    Could be Steel Battalion was designed for a more old-fashioned nerve-wracking control scheme, rather than HOTAS.
