«©NCSX» Brand new and factory packaged BPS MAX controller for the original Famicom (Original 8-bit Nintendo console). The BPS Max could be considered a precursor or perhaps inspiration for the design sensibilities of the Sony Dual Shock with its stubby finger grips and rectangular shaped main body. In our opinion, the BPS MAX has a built-in learning curve in order to be used properly. A player who grasps the controller for a few minutes and twiddles mindlessly with the red Cycloid Pad might not appreciate how it's supposed to work. Hint: It's not supposed to be shuffled around by its non-centering lonesome.

   The Cycloid Pad is surrounded by a "Donut Pad" which works like a standard 8-way D-pad which measures roughly 1" in diameter. You could try to manipulate the Donut Pad by pressing on it directly but that's unwieldy and uncomfortable. For proper usage, situate your thumb upon the Cycloid Pad and press down and move it all around in order to manipulate the Donut Pad. Got it? You're supposed to press on the Cycloid Pad in order to exert control on the surrounding Donut Pad. It's a thing of beauty once you realize how smooth the control mechanism is for shooters, some sports games, and select platform titles on the Famicom. As an extra bonus, a turbo-fire function may be toggled for the "A" and "B" buttons which allows gamers to gun 16 shots per second.
