I probably should have used the flash for that photo.
That button below the d-pad is 'select', it has the 4 face buttons and 2 temporarily places shoulder buttons.
It took a good few hours to get the stupid controls to work properly, the 'a' button doesn't press very well because there isn't enough space behind it, but other than that, it seems OK.
Oh, and it's running off 4 AA batteries, I must remember to always make sure they are all rechargeable. Real batteries would over power it and fry something.

-- What I learned --
1. Raspberry Pi 3 booting up isn't as painfully slow as I remember.
2. I should have researched the game gear before doing this. Everyone just slices out the parts they want to use, which is what I did. However, the power board happily supplies a couple of 5v lines, That would have saved a LOT of work and no doubt the volume control board also houses the game gears AMP, so I probably could have used that also. Oh well.

Nope, this one probably cost me a about £20 or so. Another one would cost me way more than that.
£8 + postage - broken game gear
£? - bunch of little wires with pluggy thingys on the end to attach to raspberry Pi.
£4? + postage - tft screen
£? - old bits of game controllers cut up for parts.
£0 - Raspberry Pi 3 - won in a contest. Only about 5 people entered, so my chances were quite good
