The SEGA SJ-200 Joystick
Here it is the SEGA SJ-200 handheld Joystick.
This was the most popular joystick for SEGA SC-3000 computer or SEGA SG-1000 console. Compact and ergonomic design, fine and very elegant. You can handle with both right and left hands and control your games as you wish. The fire buttons are easy to push by thumbs and pointer finger while with the other hand you can control the stick.
A very good product, which is compatible with many 8bit systems with a 9 pin Atari-like joystick socket, the only difference is that it has two separate signals for the fire buttons.
