I was just browsing to see if they had any new Game Pads.

i would upgrade from a P2600 rumble to something similar but if they had trigger buttons underneath where your hands grab... making it a 12 button gamepad....

BUT i was suprized there are no gamepads on the website at all anymore.

have they discontinued Gamepads and only do Flight Sim stuff?
There is no product catalog anymore for gamepads.

I have to say i will never buy a Wireless gamepad. Because the batteries run out and you have to do all that work into re-charging. Just plugging in is my preference. thats why i got the P2600. it was not wireless.
(plus other reasons it being a 10 button gamepad)

It had three buttons on top and three buttons on bottom right on the pad.

They made unique Gamepads. Im trying to find something like it but in a different make (ie Logitech)....

But they all make it with only 4 buttons on the pad.

The P2600 has four buttons on top and 6 buttons on the pad...

I'm really sad... I just checked amazon.ca and no more Saitek game pads...

I just need official confirmation that I have the last of the best gamepads.

Thanks for the Reply, but those do not have 6 thumb buttons.

The more buttons the better.

IF i get a new pad it will atleast have 6 thumb buttons (instead of normal 4)
and 4 shoulder buttons. (minimum!) If u guys are still making those types of pads. ie p2600... If not I might have to e-bay it. I'd be only interested because they are rare right now.

BUT I would definately upgrade for sure if it had some sort of extra buttons on the bottom where you grip of the pad..(in addition to the regular P2600 buttons)

You could use your fourth finger (the one inbetween pinky and middle finger)...to push the grip trigger buttons.

A few games ive played i still run out of buttons even with the p2600.

However thanks for letting me know about whats in stock.
