Title: Atari 2600 & 5200 ProPaddle Controllers
Post by: TrekMD on February 02, 2020, 20:40:40 PM
0711SPIELE has created ProPaddle controllers for the Atari 2600 and the 5200 (there's a set compatible with the C64 as well) which looks fantastic.  They are currently being sold on Ebay.  Check out the current auction:  Propaddle 2 (2 Paddle Controllers in set) for Atari 2600/7800/C64/128 (https://www.ebay.com/itm/ProPaddle2-Controller-f%C3%BCr-Atari-2600-5200-7800-und-C64-C128/264308526152?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=564404833040&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649).  Here are a couple of pictures...

Nice one, does he get a lot of sales from AA? Can't imagine he has a lot of love over there?

I'm not sure.  He mostly sells them on Ebay, though he cannot ship any right now due to the coronavirus.

That must be the most commonly used phrase on the planet Earth right now: "due to the coronavirus". It really does affect everything when it affects retrogaming 😬
