Ridge Racer Used To Have Awesomely Weird Controllers

Racing games and racing controllers go together like peanut butter and jelly and at the peak of its popularity, Ridge Racer was one major racing franchise that pushed the boundaries for racing controllers.

Meet Namco’s NeGcon. A racing controller innovation that’s ahead of its time.

NeGcon Controller

YouTuber Rerez brought the NeGcon back to attention when they released a video that takes a look at he racing controller. The clip gives viewers quite a fascinating insight on how game developers worked around the limitations of early gaming peripherals.

Check out the video below by Rerez that shows off how the NeGcon works:

With the advent of analogue sticks, experimental controllers like the NeGcon had fallen to the wayside but at least, with YouTubers like Rerez, we can look back at the crazy innovations that game developers concocted during gaming’s early years.
