nice little thingy – Additional Gamepad Controller for SKU 28970 Reviews

Pros:
Excellent replacement for my old 8 bit MSX. My daughter could not handle the big theArcade turbo joysticks, but she loves these little things. Just needed to do a small modification, see: http://www.msx.org/wiki/How_to_get_joypad_for_MSX I even did the modification without soldering in less than 15 minutes.
Cons:
the length of the wire You had to do the mod yourself :-)
Other:
The wire could have been longer, my connectors are on the back of the machine, so that leaves only 1m of usable length...
Bottomline:
A must have for any MSX-er, I had 1 but ordered 3 more just in case... I guess It will also work on commodore 64, amiga, atari st, amstrad cpc and other old 8-bit / 16- bit computers.
