Stone Age Gamer: Genesis “GN6” Controller (Hyperkin)

Those who follow the Skooter Blog know that I have a Mega Drive III da Tec Toy and an Sega Genesis, from the U.S., the first model. Both were accompanied by joystick do modelo original do Mega Drive, with directional button, 3 buttons (A, B, C) and more the Start. But we know that the Genesis also later had a control with directional and more 6 buttons (A, B, C, X, And, From, Start Mode of addition and), which can be used in some games, like Street Fighter II’ Special Champion Edition.

The original control 6 Sega original buttons is very rare item today, is not very easy to find, is expensive and often is not in very good condition. In optimal control search, already ventured with some who have already shown here in Skooter Blog in previous articles, they are:

All of them, My favorites are the Rhino, but they do not seem to like me very much. One of them is dead, and other times begins to fail the B button for no apparent reason. So I decided to risk it with Genesis “GN6” Controller da Hyperkin, that according to some analyzes is the closest Sega controller of the original.

And GN6 apparently still in production and appears to be relatively easy to find. I opted for the Stone Age Gamer because the price of two control and more freight was the cheapest at the time, but it's easy to find them also in Amazon and no eBay.

I can say that GN6 do not let me down. A really great control for the Mega Drive. Has no turbo and slow motion as Rhino, but has a directional and great great buttons. The cable is long and quietly comes to my couch without I need the my extensions. And I think quite hard to find a better option at a cost of only US $ 6,99. The packing Stone Age Gamer It is a box, full of “fandangos” green (Styrofoam) that kept the original packaging of GN6 intact.

In conclusion, for me the GN6 of Hyperkin They are approved and have become my standard drivers Sega Genesis. Check out some photos:

      I don't have the 6 original buttons so you can compare, But what they say is that he is what most closely resembles the original.
      I am quite satisfied with it. I would not give up on the other, except maybe if the 8bitdo throw a Receiver Retro Mega Drive.
