Ok, I'm getting DJ Max Trilogy delivered from play-asia some time within the next couple of days. And I was planning on using either my psp, or ps3 pad as the controller for it so I don't have to learn an entirely new button layout. Turns out neither of these will work because my computer is running Windows vista ultimate x64.

I don't want to downgrade to a x86 operating system because i have 4gb of RAM and it won't be supported. So, could anyone recommend a good PC controller that has a similar feel, and button layout to a playstation controller, I'm particularly looking for the individual D-pad buttons (rather than the plastic circle type affair cheap pads seem to have).

Any reccomendations would be appreciated.

It would be quite hard to play with a gamepad given the notecharts.

I have seen the NB Girls 6B video and your fingers will bleed at the end of that song because there are enough left + right and circle + square combos.

It will be impossible to play any charts higher than 4Key since they are structured to work with the keyboard, and not a PS2/PSP gamepad.

How do you expect to hit Left and Right notes at the same time?

You will not be able to play anything but the easiest songs with a game pad. Why would you want to, anyway? A keyboard is a far better controller than any pad for games like this. More accurate, more simultaneous notes, more precise control (auuugh whiteblue 6B MX one-thumbed hold+taps are killer), longer finger endurance, etc. There is simply no reason to prefer a gamepad for this sort of game.
