Player X has entered the game! Add some arcade buttons (up to twelve) and a joystick and you've got your own homebrew USB games controller. BAZINGA!

This tiny PCB connects to your PC, Mac, or Linux machine with a standard USB micro-B cable, and appears as a USB games controller. Then it's just a matter of adding some arcade buttons and a joystick (Pimoroni's Arcade Parts Kit has everything you need, except the USB cable) as input.

The buttons and joystick plug into Player X with male DuPont connectors (jumper jerky), which you'll find on one end of our wiring loom. There's also a connector for Pimoroni's Plasma Buttons if you want to add some rainbow-illuminated button-bashing to your games controller.

Player X PCBs are also stackable, using M2.5 standoffs, so you can use it to build two-, three-, or even four-player controllers!

Features

  • USB games controller
  • No-solder DuPont connectors for joystick and buttons
  • 1x joystick and up to 12x arcade buttons
  • Tactile shutdown button
  • Plasma button connector
  • Connects via USB micro-B cable
