I was looking at this "Console General" shirt on woot and I am unable to identify one of the controllers:

Unidentified controller from "Console General" shirt

(It's the last controller on the second row.)

What console is it from? None of the others are third-party controllers (well, the GunCon is a notable exception), so I don't think it's third-party. I've been through all of the generations on Wikipedia, to no avail (but perhaps I missed one).

    The shape looks like an Ouya controller, but the button layout is wrong. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ouya Aug 24, 2021 at 22:23
  • @computercarguy perhaps the shape matches, but the shirt is older than the Ouya. The shirt came out in 2009

  • Well, this is the first time I think I've seen it. Woot doesn't say when it was designed. And looking on Amazon shows it's only been available there since 2018, so how would I know how old the design is? Aug 25, 2021 at 16:59
  • @computercarguy Sorry. I didn't mean to imply that you should have known how old the shirt was. Just explaining why I don't think your suggestion is correct. It was a good suggestion. It's really close. I just don't think it's the correct answer.

It could be this one, NES Max:

The NES Max was a controller that was released by Nintendo for the NES in 1988.

  • This was a great controller for games that featured D-Pad circling like Track & Field II. Only thing better was the NES Advantage stick controller.

That looks like an NES Max controller to me.
