Sega Genesis Control Pad Complete in box!

Sega Genesis Control Pad mint in boxSega Genesis Control Pad complete in box!  To me this always look like something “Batman” would us.    What a great controller.  It broke free from the boxy controllers in the consoles a generation before the Genesis.  The curved bottom even gave it a nice grip =)

Even Sega Retro agrees with me as I quote them:

“Mega Drive controllers are notable for being one of the first control pads to be ergonomically designed for the user’s hands. Though improvements were made in the coming years, previous systems had cornered edges with their controllers, meaning they were often uncomfortable to hold after several hours of play. The Mega Drive controller is rounded, and has its buttons placed in easier to reach positions.”

 

I totally agree.  I notice even the consoles of today such as Xbox 360, PS3 and even the Pro Wii U controller have that kind of style today.  You can actually still buy this controller today.  Click here to see prices but I am sure they are all used and not as in mint condition as the one I am lucky to own  =)

Stay Stoked!

One thought on “Sega Genesis Control Pad Complete in box!

  1. Xbox and Wii should deff go to HD, and Blu- ray disc like the ps3.They can all have hihger graphic cards or whatever, so the games can look better.They should all be smaller and quieter, and the ps vita is pretty much a ps3 portable.The Wii U will bomb i think.. Nothing new or great. Sony should name their new console, Playstation 4. Microsoft should not name theirs Xbox 720 ( sounds weird.)And Apple has the best chance at creating a new console. I think the could and people would buy it. But i dont think they will because they are just really successful right now with Ipod and Iphones and the app store its pretty amazing.. I think they should still with portable, fun and addicting games, they do have their selection of hardcore games as well, but they are better at the littler games. Gaming experts are saying that your better off with the ipod and app store, then buying like the psp and ds and things.. So apple has a bright future in gaming no matter what they do.And Sega, even if they do come out with a new console.. NO ONE will buy it thats just the truth.. there is no room for anything new, because people wont buy it. We are fine with our big four ( Xbox, PS3, Wii and PC), and thats another reason apple wont make a console..And they should arrive in 2014-15. Sony has already stated that they are working on the new playstation.
