C64mini joysticks

The C64mini comes with a joystick, but what if you want a second one?  Where do you source them from?

Apparently, SNES style joysticks (the one from INNEXT for example) may do the job.   Retro pie compatible joysticks are worth checking out too: see raspberry pi8bitdo and core electronics.  The PS4 dualshock may work, but is about 10x the price.

This gurce site has a good compilation of user comments (a cleaner version than at the community board).  It appears that firmware upgrades are going to help with compatibility of game controllers.

If you want to upgrade the machine slowly, and test joysticks on each one, you can get the firmware archive, or just go to the latest.
