The Control Pad by Sega OziSoft is a controller for the Sega Saturn, released exclusively in Australia in 1996.

Though very similar to a standard Saturn Control Pad (of which there are many variants), this particular model has a slightly different plastic casing - a design not seen either before or since. Most notably, the Australian Control Pad has turbo switches on the back of the unit - though several turbo controllers received official branding for the Sega Mega Drive (namely the Sega MegaFire), this is the only "official" Saturn control pad to offer this service (the Virtua Stick offers these functions in arcade stick form).

It is presumed to have been phased out relatively quickly, as Sega began to roll out the similar, cost-reduced, Japanese-style control pad as the standard controller.

Similar to previous controllers released by Sega OziSoft, it is a re-brand of a third-party controller.
