    The issue with the neGcon is that it doesn't have an analog button, so even though you could easily plug it into the pS3 you wont be able to assign controller slot to it, as you need the PS/Analog button to synchronize a controller to the PS3

    Where has your custom avatar and title gone to Colin? Something to the nature of Wipeout HD lead designer about to appear is it?

    judging by some of the weird stuff they've released over time, I think Nyko would probably be a good company to approach to try to get to produce a new neggie equivalent
    they even have a "submit your idea" page here

    Oooh thats an interesting find. Was the Neggy not considered a failure overall though? Worst peripheral ever made if I recall the brainless ramblings correctly. With that in mind it wouldn't be easy to get another similar controller made, surly Namco would sue if anything even remotely like a NeGcon was produced?

    You will be, if you got an adapter, which I do. Unfortunately, though, the PS3/adapter combo only works with common PS2/PS controllers - but it doesn't recognize some of the neg's buttons and while connected the neg constantly moves the cursor all over the menues, which renders it virtually useless. Tried it with a black neggie, and I doubt it were any different if I dug out my white one.

    Anticipating the release of Wipeout HD I Google "negcon ps3" and look where I end up!
    I think its a damned shame that the negcon did so poorly. It had to have been bad marketing at it's core, because I've let many people use mine and I've never run across anyone who didn't enjoy it. It was foolish of namco to stray from the standard way which ps controllers interface. The only thing I can imagine is that the motion of the negcon has a higher resolution than the analog stick thus requiring the special support, but I doubt it. I still have at least one white negcon NIB with one more on permanent loan, but the day my black one breaks will be a very sad day indeed. The speedster looks good, but not as good as something that twists
    I must say that I'm surprised at the number of people who don't want to see it supported for HD. They must not be able to find one of their own

    I hear what all of you are saying about the old neggies but this thread was not made for the support of being able to use your old neggies

    But rather a cry for the wipeout developers to acknowledge that the old negcon brought an un forgetable feeling to the wipeout games on the ps1
    and that a new and revised negcon should be created for the ps3 and marketed with the nextgen wipeout games in a bundle pack. As i said before like guitar hero and the guitar.

    But i'd also like to add that is the wipeout developers come up with control features to parallel the negcon all mightly superiorty in precise controlabillity then i'll be impressed and very happy.

    they had no choice at the time, the PS1 came out with digital controllers only initially, remember?
    I don't remember when negcons, ps dual joysticks, ps analogue controllers, and dualshocks came out. but I am pretty sure that it was in that order

    Was the negcon the first controller to have analog control for the ps1? If so I didn't realize it was that old. I know it was packaged with one of the Ridge Racers originally which I never played (they were good arcade games though!)
