Suncom Joy Sensor

Recommended Posts

Awww... I used to HAVE one of these!!! I used it on my Atari 2600 way back when. :)

 

Haven't seen one in about 22 years...

Okay, as long as you don't mind, I paid $10 shipped for it. :)

Very well worth the $10. I loved using this controller and it was surprisingly responsive(from what I remember 2 decades ago!). ;)

 

You'll enjoy that one!

Recently one of my Youtube Subscribers sent me some surprise items, including a Colecovision Module # 1 and Suncom Joy Sensor for Colecovision. Needless to say I was very happy and pretty surprised how well it actually worked, took some getting use to but I really like it!

Cool! For some odd reason I really get attracted to the "strange" items in almost anything -- if it's standard, I might take a look, but if it's something incredibly weird and out-of-the-ordinary, I'm all over it. Does this thing basically work like a big D-pad or Intellivision Disc? You just touch the little spots on it and it moves like a joystick held in that direction?

Pretty much yes, you do not need to press too hard either, as I said it seems odd at first but you adjust.

Aroo! Expletive deleted! Man, that was a friggin' steal! I always wondered what these were like. Most retro controllers are crap (sorry guys, it's true) but it would have been nice to see one buck that trend with responsive control.

I have yet to use it! Received it in amazing condition as per usual. :) It's sitting on my coffee table in front of the Atari just waiting, but I've been so busy with the CGE Project that I haven't had time. I am amazed at how big the thing actually is, I figured it would be small Nintendo D-pad sized. Felt the sensor controller disc thing, feels like a very light touch will get it to move your character. Very cool little device! I am a sucker for Suncom joysticks, too, as a Slik Stik is my primary joy for 2600 gaming. Everything they made seems to be of high quality and easy to use!
