Whilst they're known for their handheld controllers, the Arcade Stick packs full sized arcade controls and various controller modes into a glorious, chunky piece of vintage goodness. It's perfect for completing the ultimate man-cave setup, or just as a party-friendly controller for your favorite retro games. 

It connects easily via Bluetooth or USB and can be recharged using the included USB cable.

  3. Review by Alan verified purchaser

    Fantastic looking arcade stick!
    Love that its Bluetooth so no need to mess with wires.
    It was easy to pair with my mac.
    Joystick and buttons are pretty average but according to the www, they can be replaced with premium parts without cutting or fabrications.
    Shipping was SUPER fast! Arrived on the 2nd business day I think. Will shop from Core Electronics again!
