Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month
-Well constructed, solid, responsive.
-Works on Atari 2600, Master System and Mega Drive/Genesis. May work on other systems compatible with the above.
- 6-button version of Genesis joypad. Works flawlessly on almost any game which needs more than the standard 3-button classic joypad.
- Excelent price
- Reasonable cable lenght, could be a little longer.
- Even though the inner circuit supports it, there's no "MODE" button like the original 6 button joypad. Fortunatelly very very very few games need it.
If you are more adventurous and know some electronic you can even buy it to build a custom autofire Master system or classic Genesis joypad. One 555 IC and some very basic components can transform the x,y and z buttons on the turbo versions of a,b and c. I did and recommend, it's great for Master System games and all shmups.
Have bought 6 of them already for my SEGA consoles collection. They are cheap but work and help to preserve the original ones. Even if you only need repair parts for your original one, many will be compatible and worth the buy.
