The All-Play 4/8: Supreme 78 is a deluxe arcade controller for the Atari 2600, Atari 7800, and any 8-Bit computer or game console compatible with the classic Atari CX-40 joystick. This controller delivers instant no-tools switching of the joystick's mechanical restrictor plate for totally authentic gameplay touch on both 4-way and 8-way joystick games. Because the joystick is mounted at the center of the panel with a pair of feather-light Suzo-Happ arcade pushbuttons mounted on either side, this controller is totally ambidextrous at every moment.
Easy access for All-Play. Simply lift the hinged control panel and turn the control wheel on the bottom of the joystick to switch between silky-smooth 4-way cornering in all Pac-Man-style maze games, as well as strong left-right positioning on games like Joust and the Space Invaders/Galaga/Phoenix family of horizontal shooters. Or set the restrictor plate control wheel to 8-way to play any game where the player can shoot or move on a diagonal.
Supreme 78 brings new playability and excitement to classic Atari 2600 games. When used with an Atari 2600, Atari Flashback, or 8-Bit home computer, all four of the buttons fire exactly the same as the single red fire button on the classic Atari CX-40 joystick. However, you can cancel your membership in the Numb Thumb Club, because these fire buttons are equipped with premium microswitches just like you remember from the arcades.
Supreme 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 Suzo-Happ arcade pushbuttons deliver true left/right two-button controls just like the original Atari 7800 "Pro Line" controllers, but with none of the pain.
Easy to Play. Supreme 78s are built in an 8" x 18" oak case 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 on a factory-painted black steel punched plate control panel with ergonomic wrist support for maximum comfort during marathon gaming sessions. Under the hood, all harness connections are soldered and heatshrink wrapped. The result is a controller to last a lifetime. Cord length is approximately 5'6" (1.6m).
Your wish is our command! Choose between a rainbow of colors for your joystick ball and pushbuttons, including the amazing Hard Candy Gemstone balls in red, blue, yellow, and green.

Review of the All-Play 4/8: Supreme 78 by the No Swear Gamer:
Wow. Where do I begin? I guess I can put it to you this way: what Bob DeCrescenzo does for Atair 7800 homebrew software, Edladdin does for the hardware.
This is my favorite controller ever. The response and kinesthetics are spot-on. Two sets of buttons make this equipment ambidextrous, so both your left-handed friends and us NORMAL people who use the joystick in the right hand can play equally comfortably. :)
The 4-to-8-way switch is a godsend, and its implementation is so elegant: lift up the control panel, and the rotating switch is underneath. And for extra convenience, there's plenty of space under there to store a few small things -- possibly even use this with a Raspberry Pi stashed under it to make a fancy all-in-one console. :)
The Supreme 78 All Play 4/8 is usable on pretty much anything that uses the 9-pin joystick port: Atari 2600, Atari 7800, Atari 8-bit computers, the older-generation Amigas (500, 2000, 1200, 4000, etc.), Commodore 64, etc. You can even use this thing with MAME (and possibly other emulators) with a USB adapter.
The only issue I have with this controller is I fear that Edladdin might be LOSING money on it.believe me, it's worth so much more than price they charge for these devices!
Really, though, save up your money, and send in those old rarity-1 Atari carts and GET ONE OF THESE THINGS! Shipping outside the US might be prohibitively expensive, though, but hey, possibly worth it.
