Take classic Atari 2600, Atari 7800, and 8-bit computer games to a whole new level with the Super 78 - an arcade controller built around an authentic Sanwa™ JLF-TP-8YT ball-top joystick with an octagonal restrictor plate and two Suzo-Happ pushbuttons.

Super 78 Arcade Controller

Super 78 transforms gameplay on great Atari 7800 games like Asteroids, Ballblazer, Centipede, Choplifter, Commando, Dig Dug, Donkey Kong, Food Fight, Galaga, Joust, and more. The octagonal restrictor plate is the perfect compromise between a 4-way and 8-way joystick, providing distinct landing points for your stick in all eight directions. The Suzo-Happ arcade pushbuttons deliver true left/right two-button control just like the original Atari 7800 "Pro Line" controllers, but with none of the pain.

Super 78 Suported Systems

Super 78 brings new playability and excitement to classic Atari 2600 and 8-Bit computer games. The Super 78 is 100% compatible with the classic Atari CX-40 joystick familiar to owners of the Atari 2600, Atari Flashback, and many of the 8-bit era computers. When used with one of these systems, both buttons perform just like the single red fire button on the Atari 2600 joystick. But because our old-school concave arcade fire buttons are driven by super sensitive micro-switches, you can cancel your membership in the Numb Thumb Club!

Super 78 Arcade Controller

Easy to Play. Super 78s are built in an 8" x 14" sloped aluminum housing that is stable on the table or happy in your lap, with the joystick and classic arcade fire buttons positioned for a natural wrist position. Under the hood, all harness connections are soldered and heatshrink wrapped. The result is a controller to last a lifetime. The molded DB-9 cord length is approximately 5'6" (1.6m).

Your wish is our command! Choose between your choice of left/right orientation of the joystick and the pair of pushbuttons, then customize your Super 78 with rainbow of colors for your joystick ball and pushbuttons, including the amazing Hard Candy Gemstone balls in red, blue, yellow, and green. Refer to the fourth image for views of the Super 78 with joystick and buttons labeled, then use the pull-down menus to make your selections.

Basic Configuration

You can choose whether to have your joystick on the left or right, with the buttons then being on the opposite side of the controller.

I ordered one of these custom. It plays true to arcade. The buttons, stick, and microswitches all even feel right. I broke my own records in many 2600 and 7800 games after ordering this. Plus, Ed lets you customize the appearance of the controller too. He obviously does this because he likes it, because he could charge more than he does for the quality of his work.

Absolutely perfect build and quality arcade-like gameplay! Brings new life to my library of classic 2600/7800 games. Only issue is that I now need one to come out for my Vectrex!
