Can always purchase new Intellivision Flashback controllers (system comes free with purchase - haha) and adapters here for them. Much better solution than even a newer pair of Intellivision II controllers.

Ask Intellivision Productions if they plan on getting more controllers. Their store says sold out for a while now.

Best to find a cheap Intellivision Flashback on ebay as save2600 suggested.

Any Intellivision controller can be used with any Intellivision system. There are three connector pinout standards. The original inline 9pin connector, the Sears/II DE-9 connector, and the Flashback DE-9. Only simple wiring adapters are needed to make them work; link provided in previous post.

Old controllers can sometimed be repaired. Open them up and look for damaged plastic circuits. If it looks okay check for continuity in each of the nine wires in the cable. Opening Intellivision II controllers can be tricky without some direction.

If you want to use Intellivision 1 controllers on an Intellivision II, you just need a simple adapter like the $3 dongle being sold here. http://www.2600-dapt...sion-daptor.htm

I opened one intv2 controller and broke the plastic side buttons. Not again if I can help it.
Go with the flashback route, you won't regret it. Plus you'll have games on the flashback system to play on your modern TV.
