I went through Happ Controls and purchased buttons and a couple sticks. Then mounted those in a box and wired. Also added an autofire switch that has a dial to set repeat rate.

Little bit of time in the shop, but it made a nice arcade console type controller.

My arcade stick arrived. It is actually made by Mayflash. Here is their website...

PS2/PS3/PC USB/GC/Wii/XBOX 360 Fighting Stick

It was easy to set up. I was playing games within minutes. It also works with just about any of the consoles. The only annoying thing is the joystick has a distictive click sound when moved, but i will be wearing headphones mostly and won't hear it, so pretty much exactly what I was after

I know I can't believe he bought a Mayflash.
