New to 3DO and looking for a controller

Post by Jopinho » Fri May 09, 2014 9:52 am

Hi, I just bought a 3DO at a fleemarket and never heard of it before. Intriguing! But now I see it is missing the controller! It is a Goldstar, so now I hope someone has a spare and is willing to sell it to me, so I can try it out and play a game (it came with a lot of demo disks so... Thanks!

This is what I got when I bought my 3DO without a controller. The priice has went up a little but they are very decent controllers. Well I have nothing to compare it to and I have no idea what the six buttons across the middle are for. They just confuse me.

But I recommend these as very affordable compared to whats out there.

But thanks! If I can't find the Goldstar, this might be a good second

Just saying, The Naki controller is much better than the Goldstar pad. The Goldstar pad is just bad, or so I think. I'd really recommend playing with a good controller at first so as not to sully your experience as a used Goldstar pad these days can easily go for $40.00 on evilbay. Just saying. Congrats on your 3DO purchase, by the way.
This is a stick up! Put all of your 3DO games in the bag and nobody gets hurt!
