watcha make of this "Unusual Prototype Joystick"

Recommended Posts

It's going for so much because it is a custom job (lots of serious labor) and it looks like a nicely done one. I wouldn't want this though. He's really just making a better base for the joystick, so why not use a WICO in there for top performance?

 

That thing sure looks cool I gotta say.

I still don't see the need for the keyword 'prototype' being thrown around when it says "handbuilt from genuine atari parts" :roll:

 

Also there is another thread in the auction central section about this, just too lazy to get a link.

Exactly - the use of the word prototype is fooling some collectors who don't know any better. I'm sure it is labor intensive to build one of those, but I don't think the price should be up that high. :roll:

You can't really blame them for using the word "prototype" any more than the 100's of auctions for Frogger, Combat or Air-Sea Battle being "rare" can you?

I think it's pretty cool just from the standpoint that you've got spring loaded fire buttons with the stock stick.

It's going for a stupid amount of money though. $50 bucks max imo.

Imagine if Atari actually built these things and replaced the original stick with them.

 

Now imagine trying to play Space Dungeon which requires 2 sticks :lol:

 

You need the whole living room just for the console and 2 sticks!

That guy has sold one of those at least once before. Waste of a trak-ball IMO. It would be better if he added the stick to the trak-ball with a switch to choose between them and also added an arcade fire button. Now THAT would be worth $50.

I would have preferred an arcade-quality ball-type control knob instead of that nubby "dead fish" 5200 stick, if that's what it's using.

Seems like a waste of an analog controller and trakball to me. I'd like to see someone hack up a trakball to have two controllers for use with Space Dungeon and Robotron 2084.
