So I have an interesting piece of hardware from a local thrift store. All of my Google powers have left me with no information about this strange piece and little more based on the manufacturer. My plan is to give some history of the product (if I can find any) and then review it based on the many things that would be relevant to this style of control scheme.

 

Do I have you in enough suspense yet? So what am I planning to review you ask? Well its an interesting little arcade stick called the Pro Player. It was manufactured by Naki International in 1993 according the box. What makes it interesting? It is compatible with the SNES, SFC, Genesis, and Mega Drive. So any gamer in the early to mid 90′s would have an easy time finding a use for this stick which was the Choice of Fighting Game Experts! And thats about all the information I have for it, every detail coming from the box I bought it in.

 

Does anybody have any information on this to help me out? I would like to keep pictures secret until the video comes out so everybody can see how nostalgic the box design is.

What, no pics?

Or is that part of the "suspense' thing you were talkin' about?

That's about all I've found about it, other than the one I have.
 
Googling the stick gets this review: http://youwreeka.blogspot.com/2010/07/naki-proplayer-controller-review.html
Other than that, there doesn't seem to be much on it. Looks interesting, reminds me of another multisystem arcade stick that had detachable adapters and is also pretty rare. I can't remember the name of it though.
 
I've been Googling it off and on for months since I've got it. That's about all I've found on it.

Even searching for the company just brings up a handful of products. I think I've found Saturn sticks made by them, and stylishly designed PS2 controllers.
 
Found a small review for it here: http://youwreeka.blogspot.com/2010/07/naki-proplayer-controller-review.html
 
@blcklblskt: That's the same link that Firestar gave. XD
