Logitech Wireless controllers eat it

Logitech wireless controllers may look cool, but my experience with them has been quite disappointing. Hoping to make all my gaming as convenient as Game Cube sessions, I spent $40 a pop on three Logitech controllers, two PS2 and one Xbox. Before spending money I check out a product’s reviews and this purchase was no exception.

Often this amounts to a mild annoyance but sometimes, depending on what I’m playing, it can lead to near instant death.
