The Redemption 5200 Controller Adapter allows you to connect Atari 2600 and Sega SMS/Genesis controllers to the Atari 5200. The majority of 5200 games can be played with standard 2600 or Sega controllers, breathing new life into games you may have been frustrated playing with the 5200 controllers previously. When using an Atari 2600 (or compatible) joystick, only games that require one fire button can be played. When using a Sega Master System or Genesis controller, two-button games may also be enjoyed. A handful of 5200 games require two joystick buttons, and an even smaller number require an analog controller. Games that require an analog controller cannot be used with this version of the Redemption 5200.
