The Jogcon is a controller developed and produced by Namco for the SonyPlayStation videogame console.
Originally released in 1998 as part of a special edition package with Namco's R4: Ridge Racer Type 4videogame, it was designed to combine the function of a steering wheel controller, while maintaining the size of a standard PlayStation controller. This is accomplished by a dial approximately 3 inches in diameter in the center of the controller (almost in the same location as the DualShock analog sticks).
The dial was the first force feedback steering wheel available on the PlayStation. Its name was derived from the action of "jogging" a dial like those found on some VCRs and the action of putting this on a controller. Actions such as torque steer, collisions, and feedback from turning the automobile all can be felt through the dial as the player manipulates it to maneuver their vehicle through the course.
The Jogcon would later be sold separately from the Ridge Racer R4 game.
