A lot of people hated the DC controller, and I've hardly ever seen it listed as anyone's favorite. That being said, I always thought it was a pretty comfy controller. But yeah, just not much demand for one.

I loved the Dreamcast for shmups, but I wouldn't want to use its controller when there are many better options available.

The biggest drawbacks to the DC controller are that there are too few buttons on the thing. Controllers have pretty much standardized to having 4 shoulder buttons and 2 analog sticks, where as the DC controller only has half of each.

Fork over your money or just use a 360 controller

I love the DC controller, but the Xbox S and Xbox 360 controllers are it's superior and successor

and maybe the VMU part throws a wrench in it

Amazon has plenty dreamcast to usb adapters. Just use an original controller and plug it in that way.

Lets see, a Dreamcast controller has 2 triggers, 5 face buttons, 1 analog stick and 1 d-pad.
Any modern controller has at least, 2 triggers and 2 shoulder buttons, 7 face buttons, 2 analog sticks and 1 d-pad.
Why would you need a Dreamcast controller? They were s*** anyway.

Maybe for the novelty of using it with dreamcast games? By that logic, why would anyone use an nes, snes, n64, genesis, etc. with their respective emulated console? Yet clearly there's a market for those. Writing it off because of its lack of buttons compared to modern controllers is moronic
