That's the CMS web site. It hasn't been updated in years. The Amiga version is not being sold anymore, even back when it was they didn't sell online.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/25320666760/ Posted in this group. Google translate tells me that they're working to get the joysticks back in sale. Or is that wrong?

Is he maybe confirming that they're not making it anymore?

I'm afraid so. :( This is what he says:

Dear customers,

We regret to inform you that the production of our product, which had been manufactured in Greece since 1984, stopped in February 2011, at least for the time being. Unfortunately, all of our CMS Controller Super 8+ are out of stock. We are struggling daily to keep our company open, due to the difficult financial situation we are all going through. I grew up thanks to the product in question because of my father Ioannis Sotiriou, who created the patent, it got me my education and the house where my family now resides. We will not give up, and that is why we are glad to serve with in any other way we can on a daily basis. The purpose of our company is to restart the production of CMS Controller Super 8+ and for the product to relive from its ashes like Phoenix.

Thank you for your warm support and your kind words, we wish you all the best.

Ah. It was the last bit, about phoenix, that got me thinking they where back. :(

At least, you're much better in translating than Google Translate. :)
