Wico's Joysticks are among the finest joysticks ever produced for any video game system. The Wico Boss is a step down from the command controller, but the action is still smooth and as durable as the top of the line model. The lack of a fire button on the base means that this controller is not for everyone. The stick movement is smooth thru 360 degrees and the tactile feedback from the button is excellent. Starting today, you're the boss. You play to win. And you do. The reason? THE BOSS is precision-engineered to do what no joystick has ever done. It has a mind like a computer - and the guts to match. You and THE BOSS can boss any game around.
