This is a SuperStick for the 3DO and is not a MAS product. I do not know who made these, but you can find them for the NES, Sega Genesis, and a few others I think. These are pretty rare, especially for the 3DO. These appear to be semi-replicas of the Street Fighter arcade cabinet control boards to some degree. Mine appears to have "3032 G" on the side and I have no idea what that even means. If not orginal to it, I may look to see if I can safely remove it.  I am particularly interested in who exactly made this and if there are any promotional materials etc  that might exist for it. 

Cheers!

Quick Google search shows that MAS actually did make 3DO sticks (news to me), and also dubbed them the "Superstick". The one you have could simply be a knock-off.

Personally if I had one of these, I'd open it up to see what's on the inside.

Rumor has it that this might predate the MAS controllers, but I cannot confirm that. Though it could most certainly be a knock-off. Once I get it in though I plan to open it up and take a gander inside. I really hppe to find some actual articles, ads, or paperwork on these. So once this gets in, I will share more photos..., until then it is research time. Oh, and thankyou for the link! :)

I am going to do this later tonight.. I will share some pics when I get a chance :)  Primary reason is that I want to see what controller board is being used and if there is a manufacturer tag on the inside

They are made by company called "Japan Video Games" ... Here is their advert. I found the magazine they were advertized in with help from Archive3DO on the 3DO discord who suggested to search Archive.org.
