How do I read the contents of a flash ROM?

Can anyone point me in the direction of a cheap ROM reader/programmer or how to build one on my own?
I want to read the contents an EEPROM on a game controller and eventually try to reprogram it to reroute inputs/outputs. It is 8-pins, but the numbers printed on it don't seem to indicate a known make/model type. Will that be a problem?
Is there an inexpensive way to do this? I am fairly good with the soldering iron and have programmed os/application-side controller drivers, so the technical aspect shouldn't be a problem.
