NES Max
The NES Max controller

The NES Max is a gamepad that was released by Nintendo for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1988. Like many later controllers (such as those for the PlayStation and N64), it has "wings": handles that extend from the edges of the pad.

Design

The controller is smaller in width than a standard NES controller and is slightly thinner. Unlike the standard controller, the Max has a small button-shaped item called a cycloid, which can be moved in directions to control on-screen movement, somewhat like the newer Nintendo 3DS's Circle Pad. The cycloid can be moved by the player's thumb to function similar to a joystick, though it lacks analog response. For more traditional control, the cycloid area is surrounded by an 8-way control pad ring. The Max also features turbo "A" and "B" buttons in addition to the standard action buttons. Although there is no adjustment for the turbo rate as there is on the more famous NES Advantage, the NES Max was known to exceed the NES Advantage's maximum turbo setting.

The Max's official Nintendo part number is NES-027.
