Description

The Jogcon is a controller developed and produced by Namco for the Sony PlayStation videogame console.

Originally released in 1998 as part of a special edition package with Namco's R4: Ridge Racer Type 4 videogame, it was designed to combine the function of a steering wheel controller, while maintaining the size of a standard PlayStation controller. This is accomplished by a dial approximately 3 inches in diameter in the center of the controller (almost in the same location as the DualShock analog sticks).

The dial was the first force feedback steering wheel available on the PlayStation. Its name was derived from the action of "jogging" a dial like those found on some VCRs and the action of putting this on a controller. Actions such as torque steer, collisions, and feedback from turning the automobile all can be felt through the dial as the player manipulates it to maneuver their vehicle through the course.

The Jogcon is fully compatible with Ridge Racer Type 4, V-Rally 2, the Playstation version of Breakout (video game) and the PlayStation 2 game Ridge Racer V. In other games, it can be used as a regular PlayStation controller by turning off the Jogcon mode using the mode switch above the PlayStation logo.
