Beeshu Striker Stereo Control Pad

This pad probably interests me more than any other on this list. A third party controller, the Striker had some great features for its day. Aside from the obvious turbo additions, it was also stereo-ready and had an earphone jack! Back in the day, gamers were still getting to know just how cool the Genesis stereo headphone jack could be, and here was a controller that had one. Even better was the return of the mini joystick inserts for the D-pad, something that had initially been included way back with the Sega Master System, but had to be discontinued when it was identified as a choking hazard for children. I guess that wasn’t a problem here, since the Genesis was marketed at an older crowd. This was one of the Striker’s innovative features, and its 8-foot cord made it even more attractive.
