I've got a couple TI-99 joysticks floating around, I'll try them out
with the Pyuuta Jr. tonight. However, as of right now I don't have
any games for the thing (In a few weeks I'll have Scramble and
Frogger). The Pyuuta Jr. does have a built in painting program of
some sort, though, so I'll try to test the joysticks with that.

I picked it up on Yahoo Auctions Japan. I forget how much I paid for
it, but it wasn't much. Around 1000 yen ($10). After shipping fees
and surcharges it probably cost me less than $50, although I used
cheap shipping so it took 2 months to reach the US. But it didn't
come with anything but the unit itself and the power cable. No box
or games or joypads. I think it was sold as untested, too, but it
seems to work at least with the built in software. It only outputs
RF, so to get the picture on a US Television you need to set the
Pyuuta Jr. to channel 2 but turn your TV to channel 95 or 96.
