Cyborg Michael Jordan could have been in NBA Street

Screw the Classic Controller, use a DualShock instead

I'm not fond of the Classic Controller. Not in the slightest. And as much as I love the Wii remote and nunchuk set-up for some games, it's far from the ideal way to play titles like Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. At least...
