    Default Has anyone ever seen a TRAK-BALL controller for NES?

    A member posted in our Guide section that we missed it. I've never personally seen one, and I can't find any information online. Does anyone here own one?

    I have an unroller controller for the nes, it looks like a track-ball, but it works just like a regular controller

    I've got an NES controller with the Quickshot brand on it. In pictures it may appear to be a trackball, as the upper half of the controller has a plastic ball sticking out of it. The thing is actually just a weird controller, though. The "ball" is in fact a hemisphere that doesn't roll or rotate. You just shove the hemisphere up, down, left, or right. It requires some effort and actually turns videogaming into something of a workout for one of your arms.

    Never heard of a NES trackball untiil this day. If one exist and it's not made by Quickshot, that can be a great find.

    Good find, but the little "FF" next to "Hori Track" indicates that it's for Famicom, not NES, technically speaking.
