Modern style controller for Atari

Recommended Posts

I was kinda wondering if there has ever been an ergonomics controller for the ol 2600. I was thinking of something along the lines of using both ports wired to 1 controller with 2 buttons and 2 thumbsticks. There may be more possibilities if the keyboard controller (i.e. basic programming) board was reimagined...


Has anything ever been produced or is this just not doable?

If you have a 3d printer i made a thumbstick style controller from ground up, you can find the printable files and necessary part list at this link so you can make one yourself. While it is not like using a gamepad, it is definetely a close experience and very similar to the neogeo pocket thumbstick (although I bet stiffer)
EDIT: and as you can see in the post I did make a dual stick version that works exactly like you described
