Games Console Switch Interface Deluxe

£200 (second hand - good condition)

The Games Console Switch Interface Deluxe (aka C-SID) is a versatile accessible controller that can be used to play games on PCs and Playstations as standard. It can be used in many different ways to make gaming more accessible for disabled gamers. As ideal for gamers using a single push button as for people wishing to build complex fully customised set-ups.

  • PSone, Playstation 2, Playstation 3 and PC compatible.
  • Using separately purchased adapters the Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii*, Gamecube and SEGA Dreamcast can all be played with switches too.
  • Works with the vast majority of Playstation games that use a standard Dual Shock controller.
  • Build the set-up to suit you or your team.
  • Enjoy some of the finest games available.
  • Optional extras: The C-SID Squid box enables you to patch in a very simple joystick anyway you like. The VRAA! add on allows for driving speeds to be reduced and controlled. The ULTRA add on enables connection to a PC acting as an extra accessibility "brain" allowing for control latching, auto-fire, control and profile cycling and the addition of analogue controls. This is a way to link to a PS4 and Xbox One too.

You can learn more about the C-SID in action at the Accessible GameBase C-SID user group. Please feel free to e-mail for further "C-SID" information and for ordering details.
