Old school style video gaming makes a comeback with the USB classic joystick!

Go back to the glorious dawn of the video games era with this classic home arcade system style joystick.

When video games first came out of the arcades and into the home, this is almost exactly the same kind of joystick that came with those systems. If you want to relive that experience, then there are plenty of emulators available that allow you to recreate the old school arcade games on a modern PC, but it would be just wrong to play those with a mouse and keyboard, or a high tech joystick that looks like it was lifted straight out of the cockpit of a modern fighter plane.

This classic, one stick, one button control system is the answer.

What’s more, up to four classic joysticks can be connected to the same PC for an authentic retro home-arcade multi-player experience.

The perfect gift for (late) twenty and thirty-somethings that had joysticks like this for their gaming the first time around, it works with modern PCs and Macs and is compatible with any game that can use a standard gamepad controller. For a genuine classic gaming experience, it also works perfectly with virtually any arcade game emulator.
