    But you pronounce 'neji' the same way you pronounce 'neggie' right? so everything's alright i guess :]

    Talking

    Firstly their are alternatives, their always have been
    (and allot of them are Dualshock2 compatable so will work on the PS3 and give feedback)

    to me the Zero Tech 3 (for PS3) from Hori looks like a reasonable option, dunno about pitch though the face buttons look pretty dodgy/not spaced far enough apart



    by the by I really would like a new neGcon, but I'm not really fussed as I'm without a PS3 (poor design student here) and trying to get 2097 running in wine on my eee is keeping me distracted enough

    Cool

    Regarding the "neji":

    I read that "neji" is translated "screw", so in essence "We need a screw controller".

    I would pronounce the g in neggie as the g in give while the j in neji as the j in Jim.
    English isn't my first language so maybe people already pronounce it that way. I think I remember Asa calling it "la neg" ("le Big Mac" style )

    Back on topic, I doubt the neGcon will be revived. The closest thing we'll probably see is Namco releasing a new kind of weird (but different) controller for a new RidgeRacer that might be equally good for racing games.

    The alternatives should be better than the original, otherwise its a waste of time guys, ask Al, he must have tried a lot of stuff, i even remember him looking for a motorcycle handle controller to try out, dont know how that went though.

    The zerotech 3 looks very similar to another controller with RC style i have seen before, dont remember the brand or model..

    i too hope theres a better controller for wipeout than the negcon, but it seems unless a new wipeout game catches a lot more fame, or namco revives it, we will be in the same dry spell we have been for a decade.

    The only thing stopping me from buying a PS3 is lack of neGcon compatibility, oh yeah and my empty pockets. Stock up on old neggies and get a couple of spare ps1s thats my advice..progress isnt always for the better is it?

    That's certainly an arguable point, but I suggest you try out WipEout HD for yourself before saying it's not worth it

    Trust me mate. The game is addictive because of the multiplayer. That alone makes HD great. But more DLC and bug fixes will make this game truly awesome for me. Oh and give us the options to disable BR and PA
