Do you guys mostly use the regular Playstation controller to play DDR Max or do you just play on the pad.I always use the pad.

There's a lot of players who do both. When I first started, I used the controller only for all the songs...so I could learn them. Now I'm looking forward to a whole bunch of new songs that I can end up dancing to. The game's fun both ways....as they both require different measures of skill and/or timing and/or endurance.

I just think using a controller is kinda cheap. i mean it's so easy to get high scores. Don't blam me it's just everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

Well when I first started I used the controller, but once I got the pad that was all I used. Sometimes, if I just want to listen to a certain song and not get up I might use the controller.

It's a good workout for the knuckles. Gets your reflexes honed up for Soul Calibur II...first-person shooters, etc.

I play on the pads for DDRMAX and Konamix, and then I can play on the computer with an adapter I bought that plugs into the USB port.

I like playing DDR on the controller when I'm not bothered to get the mat out or if the song is too hard ... like Max 300 I play on the mat to unlock songs, using the controller to unlock songs is just plain cheating.

The only song I cannot get an AA on the controller is MaxX Unlimited on the 7th Mix.

I prefer using the pad.But since we have DWI we can always play on the keyboard.It's kind of hard but you will get use to it.

Stepmania is sooo much better then DWI.

I only played on the controller when I couldn't make a lot of noise. eg. when everyone went to bed.

What pad should I buy? DO they last long?

better yet, play at the arcade.

and buy a cheap 3rd party pad.

it'll last you about 4 or so months. Less if you progress really fast.

then go to ddrfreak.com, and learn how to mod your pad.

I really wanna get a metal pad, but the price is a bit high and since I don't really know how durable they really are, the price kinda puts me off (£120 in UK). I like the idea they don't slip ('cause they're heavy) but can they break easily?

Aren't there some places that allow you to get the hyper-realistic metal pads for approx 300$? It's outrageous, but I believe they offer a lifetime warranty on the thing, too.

When I first started out I used the pads. I've never really used the controllers. The pads are just so much more fun. You actually get to dance.

I mostly play on the arcade machine pads since there's a DDR Extreme machine ½ of a mile away from where I live.
