Taiwanese consumer electronics company Genius has releases its F-1000 Arcade Stick for PlayStation 3 and PC.

Featuring an arcade-style eight-button layout with a four-axis ball-handled joystick, the F-1000 Arcade Stick is designed to give PS3 and PC gamers the coin-op arcade feel.

In addition to the standard "Select" and "Start" buttons, the F-1000 boasts 13 buttons (including a Turbo button) for a total of 15.  A dozen of them correspond to buttons on a standard Playstation 3 controller and have markings showing to which button they correspond to make it easier for PS3 gamers to make the transition to the arcade stick.

Finally, the F-1000 comes with a 3-meter long USB cable to make it easier for users to crush foes from comfort from the sofa.  If that's not long enough, a one-meter extension cable also comes in the box.

The Genius F-1000 Arcade Stick is available in the US and Canada with a MSRP of $59.99.
