Storing Controllers

Any suggestions on storing game controllers for quick use and preventing their cords from getting tangled or permanently coiled? (outside of purchasing wireless controllers)

I cringe whenever someone starts winding the cord around a controller.

I try and 'fold' the cord like they come in the box. Then I set the controller on top—not the neatest or fastest way, but it keeps the cords nice.

If you'd like to keep the cords nice, gently loop them into large-radius loops, and apply a velcro riptie.

On my xbox, I like to always unplug the extender cables when I'm finished, and not have all four plugged in when I don't need them. No matter how carefully I am with keeping them untangled, having them all plugged in seems to lead to trouble.
