If you ever played games on PC/Mac emulators of great 8bit computers like Atari or Commodore you probably noticed that the feeling is not like you remembered it.

The graphics is pixel precise, the sound is like the original yet it's weird to play the games on a PC keyboard. You remember you used to win them using your joystick, right?

Do you wonder how it would feel if you could attach your old joystick to your PC/Mac and play the original games with the same stick you played them 20 years ago? And what if you could attach two joysticks at once and play with or against your friend? It's time to show your children how you mastered the wonderful 8bit games!

Here are some links to what others have said about the Dual Joystick USB adapter: AtariAge forum and Facebook.


Price of one adapter is 20 USD, 18 EUR or 15 £. Shipping is 7 USD, 5 EUR or 4 £ so the total price is 27 USD, 23 EUR or 19 £.

For ordering please send me email with your postal address to pstehlik@sophics.cz.

Payment can be sent either via PayPal to pstehlik@sophics.cz
or in Europe you can use SEPA direct bank transfer: IBAN is CZ8030300000001000393021 and the bank's BIC code is AIRACZPP.

I tend to ship the package (with a tracking number) immediately (within hours) after receiving the payment.

USB cable

I can add a short 50cm USB cable for 1.50 USD, 1.2 EUR or 1 £. Using an extension USB cable is highly recommended. I used to be able to ship a short cable together with the adapter but I don't have them in stock. Please get one in your local store if you don't have one at home already. Plugging the Dual Joystick USB adapter directly to the USB port is not recommended because you could break it during wild gaming :-)
