Xtension 4-way Arcade Controllers with Trackball or Spinner


There are 2 strategically placed action buttons to the right of the 4 way joystick for more comfortable game play during 4 way retro games. You can also turn off the player 1 - 8 way joystick (pictured above) when using the player 1 - 4 way joystick to avoid triggering the 8 way joystick during 4 way game play.

PLEASE NOTE: We are aware of many switchable 4 way to 8 way configurations of joysticks however, a dedicated 4 way or 8 way joystick does provide far more control and accuracy therefore providing the player with the best overall experience.


There are also 2 strategically placed action buttons to the left of the spinner for a better true arcade experience in most retro spinner games. The placement of this is extremely comfortable and does not interfere with any other controllable game-play on the controller.


Although this is not always necessary, custom mapping of your controls is now easier than ever by downloading the button mapping software and customizing your mapped layout in seconds. This is a keyboard encoded device and is pre-configured to the popular arcade software MAME. There are on/off switches for the illuminated menu LED button lights. The control board graphic is protected by a die-cut sheet of scratch resistant plexiglass. The NON LED Game-Play Action Buttons come in black only, however they can easily be modded yourself if any customization or color is desired. The LED Menu Buttons are only available in white.

NOTE: We are no longer supporting LED action buttons as most LED buttons have proven to experience delayed responsiveness and can be very stiff during game-play. Although some gamers may like the visual aesthetic of LED action buttons, a large majority of our customers prefer quality responsiveness with their game-play therefore justifying this layout. You certainly can upgrade to all LED buttons yourself as there is an active VCC current you have the option connect to in a custom Mod.

Optional Custom Modding

(For Advanced Users Only)

Although it is not at all necessary, the board is designed to be very easy to access for mods and personal customizations. The buttons and sticks are actually extremely easy to mod. We do use and include official Suzo Happ Arcade joysticks and route out a 1/2" pocket for mounting to the 3/4" board. With the 1/8" plexiglass, the sticks mount with a comparable standard height off the platform as popular competition sticks.

Adding all LED action buttons is fully supported as there is an active 12v VCC current powered by USB.

4 of 5 Xtension Control Board Emulator Plus July 14, 2020
Reviewer: JM from Grapevine, TX United States  
Wow!, the emulator plus control board was all it was advertised to be. It works effortlessly with my emulators. The 4 way joystick being seperated from the 8 way stick is definitely the way to go. If I had any complaint it would be that the 4 way joystick is not centered on the board and that it is not quite that original feel you'd get from say an original Ms. Pacman machine. If you could of given me that, I would no doubt have given you 5 stars. Still an excellent product that is well worth the money!

5 of 5 Super Happy June 17, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Ashburn , VA United States  
Bought the Emulator Edition Plus.  The trackball functions as a mouse very well with the Mouse Left and Mouse Right buttons performing left click and right click mouse functions.  Great for navigating on your computer.  Once in MAME, the joysticks work great.  The 8-way stick works incredibly well with classic 4-way and 8-way direction games.  The 4-way stick works great with left-right shooter games and regular 4-way direction games.  The trackball works like a dream for trackball-based games.  I am also using the trackball as an analog controller for games that never had a trackball, so this increases my enjoyment and the novelty of playing old games.  Highly recommend the Emulator Edition Plus for all of the reasons above, plus it has a spinner!  While the spinner may not apply to many retro games, for the games that did have a spinner, or left-right controls, having the spinner gives you more playing options.
