Original Sega Dreamcast controller works well in both the console and with dreamcast usb adapters. After my original controller broke I was having a difficult time finding a controller locally. I purchased one of the used controllers and it shows moderate to heavy wear. The controller shows moderate signs of yellowing and some wearing on the joysticks but functions well. The controller is close probably close to 15 years old so the condition is about what I was expecting on a used controller. Overall the controller works well and allows me to play games from my childhood so what more can I expect.
