I need help:
I have found and I am about to purchase the Mario Kart Black / Grey Controller-however there is no box. How can I tell this is different from a make up from a black and grey one? Are the colours different at all?
I just took a picture to compare my Mario Kart controller and a normal grey controller.
My MK controller has been used for a while now so it's not as white as it used to be and it's kinda dirty actually but you can tell from the picture that it's still whiter than the grey controller.
My grey controller hasn't been used at all BTW.

Thanks for taking the time and the pics! I have heard that the top is more matte black and not as glossy as the standard black controller-can you confirm this as well by any chance?

Thanks!
Unfortunately I can't help you confirm that... I don't have a charcoal black controller to compare it with. x.x
You should be able to tell the difference quite easily though. When my MK controller was brand new it was really significantly whiter than the grey one.

I've racked my controllers in a different manner, as seen below:

Each rack is comprised of 1 pieces of wood (painted) with 4 book stands ($1 from WalMart) that were bent and hot glued to the pieces of wood. Then each piece of wood had 3 holes drilled, and screwed onto the wall.
That looks great! :yeah:

What do you guys make of this!

If it have been painted, thats one bloody good paint job.
Wow! :huh:
Does anybody know if this is real?
It seems very familiar to me... like I've seen it somewhere before... perhaps in a Japanese gaming magazine when I was a kid...

Out of curiosity, does anybody have a SharkPad Pro 64?
I have one and I'm using it as my main controller as I've heard all the stories of the official N64 controller thumbsticks wearing out and since this one has a different thumbstick I figured I'd take my chances.
So, the question is, does anybody know if the SharkPad Pro 64's thumbstick will wear out as easily as or even more easily than a standard N64 controller's thumbstick?
