I’ve located a neGcon. It’s a freaky PlayStation controller made by Namco in Japan:
It has pressure-sensitive buttons, and a heavy and accurate rotational sensor in the middle. You twist the device to steer. Although originally designed for Ridge Racer, It is said to be the controller for playing WipeOut. Wip3out 3 addicts have often posted about its amazing effect on their lap times.
The timing couldn’t be better, as WipeOut Fusion’s US release date has been brought forward, so there’s only a couple of weeks left to wait. Hopefully I’ll have the neGcon in my twitching hands by then. Time to stock up on Red Bull.
