What controller is this?

Recommended Posts

Hi, anyone seen a controller like this?

 

I initially thought it was an Atari Power Pad but weren't the A,B and C buttons all blue on those?

Yes, it certainly could be that.

 

The previous owner said it was the controller sent out with Jaguar developer systems but I've not found anyone who can corroborate that.

Do you have this in your possession? If so, could you post a picture of it underneath?

I do have this, I'll have to dig it out of a box to photograph it again.  I believe it has a serial number beginning with B.

 

I'll post another photo soon.

I can confirm that the grey controller was sent out with some Jaguar developer systems; pretty sure mine has all blue buttons, however. But it would be trivial to swap out the button colors, so who knows if Atari did that or if someone else did?

I heard that these were developed for (or at least to be used with) the Falcon. I wonder if there's any truth to that.

 

For the Atari STe - but not for the Mega STe or the TT030 - and the Falcon030. Unfortunately, very few existing ST games were updated to support the controllers or anything else attached to the Enhanced Joystick Ports.
