Description Edit | History

The Arcade was a joystick produced by Suzo International on the European market. It distinguished itself from the competition because of its robust construction as the stick had a reinforced inside made of steel and used microswitches for the controls (but not the fire buttons, which used leaf springs). It was a home version of the joystick used by the professional gaming industry in many video arcade halls across the world.

The Arcade appeared in several variations:
- The Arcade Classic, without a fire button
- The Arcade, with just one fire button
- The Arcade Turbo, with two fire buttons (one on the base and one on the top of the stick, of which only one can be used at a time, selected with a switch underneath the base)
- Prof Competition, with two fire buttons (two on the left and righthand side of the base)
- Prof Competition 9000, with three fire buttons (two on the lefthand and righthand side of the base and one on top of the stick)
- Prof Competition 9000 de luxe, with three fire buttons (two on the lefthand and righthand side of the base and one on top of the stick), and an adjustable rapid-fire switch

The digital joystick was suitable for most 8 bit and 16-bit home computer systems.
