Good replacement for Genesis/Megadrive pads – Additional Gamepad Controller for SKU 28970 Reviews

posted by Hateshinai on 02/02/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Well made. Decent length wire. Responsive buttons and D-pad. Compatible with Sega Megadrive/Genesis/Nomad, Sega Master System, Commodore Amiga, Atari 2600 and other consoles which use the DB9 connector. Much cheaper than an original Genesis 6-button controller.
Cons:
Does not have a "Mode" button to switch between 3 and 6 button modes. However, the circuit for it is present inside, so all you need is to add the button yourself.
Other:
Ideal as a 2nd pad for your old Sega consoles. I also use it (through an adapter)when I play Sega games on my PC with an emulator.
Bottomline:
Good quality pad for your retro consoles.
