Hardware: Purchasing Arcade Controls

The joysticks are finally back in stock at Adafruit. To make two controllers, I bought two joysticks; 6 buttons two each of red, white, and blue; and a batch of female-female jumpers (way more than I need though). The plans here only call for two buttons, and the original NES only has two game buttons (excluding the start and reset)…but since a RJ45 has enough wires in it for 3 buttons, I thought I’d go ahead and do 3. Total was $69.63 for enough parts (and some leftovers) to make two controllers.
