Here is a cool little piece of budget gaming tech. These LavaGlow controllers actually retail for less than regular PS3 controllers. What makes them even better is the fact that they glow. If you like playing games at night with the lights out, you won't have to go hunting for your controls. Nobody has any idea how well these things handle, but if cheap PS2 controllers are anything to go by, you will probably be sacrificing a little bit of smoothness. That is OK in most games and perfectly acceptable for the controller that your buddy or your little brother gets to use.
They take 3 AAAs, come in red or blue, and cost $34.99
