Samurai Warrior Joystick Won’T Win Any Prizes for Ergonomics

Now I’m just fine with my DualShock 3 controller, but for those of you out there who prefer their joypads with a bit more character, you might want to check out this Samurai warrior USB controller.

The controller is modeled after the traditional garb of a Samurai warrior, but underneath this fighter’s mask is a scary Skeletor head, complete with glowing green LED eyeballs. Now I didn’t have the patience to read the entire Wikipedia entry on Samurai warriors, but I don’t remember the part about glowing green LED eyes. Leave us a comment if you happen to find that part.

The warrior controller does all of the usual stuff – it’s got dual digital/analog sticks, a D-Pad, shoulder buttons, has vibration feedback and works with the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, or any PC using a USB connection. Of course there’s that little part about how you’ll be left with painful red indentations of snake-dragons on your palms and creepy little faces on your thumbs after 60 minutes with Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, but that’s the price you pay for having a cool looking controller with glowing green LED eyes, right?

You can grab a Samurai warrior joypad over at USB Geek for $25 (USD). Personally, I prefer this guy with the mask on. He’s not so scary anymore.
