Speedlink goes gold for Competition Pro silver jubilee

Blaster from the past

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Speedlink is celebrating 25 years of joystick jubilation, with the release of a limited edition gold Competition Pro - the ultimate home arcade accessory.

Those of you who owned a Commodore 64 or Amiga, will look back upon your first Competition Pro with nostalgic exhilaration.

Now on its silver anniversary, a quarter of a century since it was launched, Speedlink presents the Competition Pro 25th Anniversary Edition.

Competition Pro 25th Anniversary Edition

Pushing all the right buttons

Limited to 10,000 units, each joystick comes with a unique serial number and certificate. While it'll connect to your Windows PC through USB, it upholds the classic features such as micro-switches with memorable clicking sounds, as well as the manic machine gunner's favourite: a continuous fire button.

The joystick also comes with a CD of 50 original games from the golden era of home computing, including Turrican from the C64 and Arkanoid from the Amiga.

Many of us that craved the grail of gaming success - to gloat at the towering face of Sir Patrick Moore and win the golden joystick on 1990s TV show Gamesmaster - will be itching in anticipation.

The Speedlink Competition Pro 25th Anniversary Edition is available from March, although there's no word on pricing just yet. ®
