Overview

The Masterplay 5200 Interface allows the use of Atari 2600-compatible controllers on the Atari 5200, as the 5200 controller was often criticized for being unreliable and difficult to use. The interface also includes a 15-pin passthrough port for a 5200 controller, as the interface itself does not include a keypad or Start, Pause or Reset buttons. Also included with the interface is a button that sticks on the controller of your choice and acts as the upper fire button on the 5200 controller. This button connects using a 1/8" mono jack and is often very difficult to find.

Trivia

  • Originally retailed for $16.95.
  • Electra Concepts also published Meteorites for the Atari 5200 and also sold both in a special bundle for $34.95.
