When activated, it automatically multiplies the A, B, X, Y, and right and left shoulder buttons two, three, or six times–depending on which of the three modes you’ve selected–if you keep the button depressed. The one you’ve been waiting for. The result is a relatively compact game stick that merges all of a standard controller’s buttons into a square base designed to be held in hand like the classic gamesticks of yore. Yeah, I’ve always wondered about that product, too. The GameStick is far more successful as a nod to throwback gaming than it is at providing an advantage in control, but that’s actually exactly the way it should be.
