Well this is a result, I bought this for the cool box that I hadn’t seen before, the seller listed it as used but it turns up and the controller is brand new :)

Nice one- I had a similar experience when I bought my arcade stick for the DC, although I’ve used it now. Funny how in SW collecting mode I wouldn’t use an unused ship for example but that doesn’t bother me for a retro game/controller.....anyway, here’s my latest pick up- a joshprod port of Flashback for DC :P

Thanks, I've got aout 20 in total, the earliest is the NES and latest a Wii, with most of the major consoles in between. I need to do a group shot some time.

That Megadrives’ stunning Edd. It’s a cool controller the Megadrive, feels sturdy and chunky, more so than the Snes ones. I bought this classic just for nostalgia, got one for a present in the early 80’s :D
