Starfox E3 “N” Gold N64 Controller

The very first N64 Gold controller came from the 1997 E3 held in Atlanta, Georgia. Here there was a StarFox 64 competition where four people could compete at a time, sitting inside machines that were Airwing replicas. The winner of the round received this gold/black controller with a gold “N” logo. According to the seller, there are only 15 confirmed controllers so far.

  1. I’m pissed at the DoA5 CE auctions. GameStop has always had tons of extra stock on so-called “Limited Editions” in the past, and often end up clearing them out 6 months later. They’ve recently changed their policy, so games like this are now PREORDER-ONLY. There are no extras in sale on the stores. I was pissed to find they did not offer it for sale on their site on day one either.

    At least I can’t be angry at them for trying to push so-called “limited editions” that aren’t limited anymore.

  2. There is so much misinformation about these gold controllers on the Internet. There are easily at least a hundred of them, I was at the E3 where they were given away in the Starfox competitions. My friends and I stopped by on the last day of that E3 and got additional controllers without having to play the game, just by asking.

  3. Most people estimate atleast 100 if not more were given away, but how many didn’t get thrown out or destroyed since then.
