    USB Atari Controller?

    Post  Paeter on March 19th 2011, 5:25 pm


    Anybody know where I could get a usb adapter for an atari 2600 joystick, or a usb joystick controller that's made to feel like an atari controller? (As opposed to those fancy usb joysticks for modern flight sims, etc.)

    I'm looking for a solution that is $25 or less. Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    And if you really want to use the original atari stick you can get one of these usb adaptors

    I would imagine this adaptor would work for a sega genesis controller too but I'm not sure.

    Thanks! My bro-in-law tipped me off to an inexpensive adapter, so I can choose which atari joystick I want to use. Very cool.

    This is actually something for my Dad for Father's Day. He's a big Burgertime fan, and we've got the cartridge but he doesn't have the console. He's gonna love this!

    And no, I don't think he's ever been to ANY online forum. ;-)
