Ad It Up: Freedom Stick

The first wireless controller I ever had was for the Xbox 360 and that amount of freedom was pretty mindblowing. I can’t imagine if I had that kind of tech when I was a kid (this ad was from Silver Surfer #18, from 1988). Holy crap, I think that’s the year I got my Nintendo. I could never get into this controller set up though. I love it when actually standing up and playing an arcade game, but not when sitting in my room moving Mario around.
