BIG6 Wired 6-Button Controller for Sega Genesis - Officially Licensed

Sega Genesis Big 6 Wired Controller

Inspired by the original SEGA Genesis® Control Pad, the design of the BIG6 take the wide and sleek look of the original and combines it with the 6-button layout of the Arcade Pad.  It also sports a 10ft/3m cable for larger game areas.  GENESIS definitely DOES.

    Big Six for Big Fun

    Awesome controller, to be perfect and win the 6th star it should have turbo and slow motion functions... aside this is a perfect match to the og 3 button controllers.

    Good but problems

    Posted by Kenny on May 31st 2023

    The big 6 controller feels really good and would be an amazing replacement controller if my original 3 button ever had ate it. The D-Pad is much better than any other Retro-Bit Product and hasn’t broke me on yet (knock on wood). The big problem the controller has though is that in some 3 button (and maybe 6 button but I haven’t seen any yet) games that the C button will act weird when used. Testing with 240p test suite it seems to work just fine but on both Sonic 1 (cartridge and flash cart) and Revenge of the Shinobi (flash cart) It will act as if the C button is pressed for just a few milliseconds and you can’t use those buttons correctly. I’d imagine there is something you can do with an extension cord to just make it act like a 3 button controller but you shouldn’t have to do that. Sadly this makes the controller unusable for at least a few games I will test more and make a list somewhere. This is why I give it a 3 outta 5 instead of a 5 out of 5. Otherwise all the buttons feel great including the start button, the D-Pad is way better than I expected and the long cord is really nice. Overall good controller with a major problem.

    SEGA Retrobit Wired 6-Button Pad

    This is the best 3rd party Controller I have ever had.
    It feels like the orginal with better buttons.

    I decided to buy the wired version because wireless doesnt mesh well with the Mega SD.

    A perfect controller

    Posted by Chad Farber on May 4th 2023

    Honestly, I expected this controller to be a disappointment much like the Brawler Gen controller, but instead this has quickly become my go-to Genesis pad finally outclassing my 8bitdo Genesis pad. The size of this is large but comfortable, the dpad is not only raised but is on a pivot and rolls super nicely for fighting games and shmups. Honestly I can`t think of any problems with this controller, absolutely excellent.

    The 6-button controller that always should have been.

    The 6-button layout is very accessible, the pad is smooth, and the cable length is excellent for playing from the couch.
    The details in the finish and the design of the connector make it feel classic, I love this controller, it is the true evolution of the 3 button.
