Vectrex Controller
« on: December 24, 2015, 22:11:38 PM »
I just saw this and thought I'd share the video.  Looks pretty awesome as a replacement for the original controller.  The only catch is it seems only seven will be made and sold!

Not sure why.  I think these would sell like hot cakes if they made  more.

Maybe it will give hope for someone else to make new controllers. I like the original controller but fear breaking it with overuse. Buying a new/old controller seems pricey and as a collector I may not even use it. An aftermarket controller seems like the best route.
