|New joysticks from Konix soon |
ONE criticism that has been levelled at the new Sega and Nintendo games consoles is that the tiny joystick 'cards'supplied with them aren't really suitable for high-speed games playing.
However, Joystick manufacturer Konix is about to launch new versions of its successful Speed King for both games machines, and also for Apple and IBM PCs.
The new joysticks are based on the original Speed King design, with variations for the different machines also available.
The IBM and Apple versions have been enhanced so that the sticks can be used for graphics design as well as playing games.
Konix have already received orders for 150,000 Nintendo sticks from America and also expect the Sega version to do well.
The original Speed King has been dropped in price to £11.95 and now comes bundled with a copy of Gremlin Graphics'Thing Bounces Back game.
