Namco PS1 Dial Controller??....

Postby dave4shmups » Thu Mar 24, 2005 3:01 am

When I had Arkanoid Returns, I noticed a picture of a Namco Dial controller in the instruction book. Does anyone know what this controller is called? It'd be fabulous to have a dial controller for Tempest X3! :P

That'd be the Namco Jog-con Image This came packaged with Ridge Racer 4.

Eh, does it work on Tempest? Be warned that not all games support the neGcon and joGcon. In fact, on the PS2, no game besides Ridge Racer V does.

The one I'm talking about is shaped like the NES Arkanoid controller-white, and rectangular in shape with one dial, and I think one button too.

I have that one myself. Now I just need Arkanoid returns :roll: I am not sure what other games the controller works for though.
