X-Arcade’s Solo Joystick: supports Linux

X-Arcade's rugged Solo Joystick: supports PC, Mac, Linux and consoles

There’s multifaceted, and then there’s X-Arcade’s Solo Joystick. Following up on the outfit’s aptly-titled Dual Joystick, the Solo here is a 12-pound beast that’s built to withstand just about anything. And, indeed, function just about anywhere. Up for pre-order now, the gamepad is set to ship to gamers everywhere on December 1st, bringing with it 11-inches of arcade-style glory.

It’ll function with PC, Mac and Linux rigs right out of the box for $99.99, while optional adapters enable support for nine different gaming consoles (PlayStation 1 / 2 / 3, Wii, Dreamcast, GameCube, Xbox, Xbox 360 and Wii U). Oh, and since you’re wondering, they company claims that it’s “hard at work on new adapters for the upcoming Xbox One and PS4,” and it’s throwing in a fully licensed version of Maximus Arcade Software for anyone who places an order before September 1st.

From Linux Game News:

The Solo looks like a great gaming joystick and rugged with a Lifetime Warranty. Bringing back the days of old-skool arcade gameplay which some of us grew up with. 🙂
Even the button layout looks to be well thought out yet simple, with a “special” white button up on the top right. Great for a wide variety of gameplay.
But the one question that still remains….. Where would I put this on my desktop???
