Don't overpay for an original Atari Jaguar Pro Controller! Now you can buy a high-quality reproduction of this highly-sought after controller! These are a culmination of a year of testing and design work to reproduce the original Atari Jaguar pro controllers. Functionally they are identical to the original controllers and just as rugged and sturdy as well. You will not be disappointed! The Atari Jaguar Pro Controller features a seven foot long cable.
The Atari Jaguar Pro Controller is similar in appearance to the standard Jaguar controller, but adds three new action buttons (X, Y, and Z) as well as two shoulder buttons (L and R) at the top of the unit. These new buttons are mapped from the existing numeric keypad buttons. The Pro Controller is compatible with all Jaguar games, but some games, such as Primal Rage, were designed with the Pro Controller in mind. However, some games that were created before the Pro Controller arrived can still take advantage of the new keys if they used the numeric keypad.
Games with Pro Controller Support
(Mayhap I should note this anecdote: My friend built an arcade cabinet, but we couldn't play Tron on it because he didn't have a stick with trigger. The controls were modular, so he disassembled a trigger stick, bolted it to panel, and popped it on. It lasted one vertical move on lightcycles, disintegrating in my hands.)
If you are on the fence and considering a purchase, I can highly recommend these. I know that the price plus shipping can seem like a lot of money, but each controller is less than the cost of an average homebrew cartridge. These really do breath new life into an old system!
I find the new controller works so well I have to give it a 5/5 as a homebrew release. Excellent job!
