Key points

The NeGcon production team based its design off various steering wheel controllers.[1]
The controller was intended for use in racing games, including Ridge Racer, Gran Turismo and Wipeout. The NeGcon was created to replicate the analog-stick movement used in the arcade game Cyber Sled (1993); the name comes from the Japanese word "nejiru", meaning "to twist".[1]
The twisting swivel-joint can be used to emulate analogue triggers or left/right stick.
The I and II buttons are analogue and have approximately 7mm of travel. The L shoulder button is also analogue and has approximately 5mm of travel.
Lacks standard layout L2, R2 or sᴇʟᴇᴄᴛ buttons.
Requires adapter to connect to PC.
Lacks native XInput support, requiring the use of a XInput wrapper (see Windows) for games that do not support DirectInput or the controller natively.
