Doc's Hi Tech Game Products, Inc., commonly known as Doc's Hi Tech or simply Doc's, was an American video game company, which produced various third-party controllers and accessories for fourth generation game consoles. The company is best remembered for its line of game cartridge cleaning kits, from which it derives its name (referring to a doctor which can fix your games.)
Officially founded in 1990 as Doc's Hi Tech Game Products, Inc., and headquartered in Rialto, California, the company was largely advertised under the name Doc's Hi Tech by 1993. By about 1994, it would shorten its name name even further to simply Doc's.
In November 1993, Doc's High Tech awarded a notable advertising contract to American marketing agency The Impact Group.
At some point in the 1990s, Doc's was acquired by Arista Interactive, and began to focus exclusively on wireless game controllers. The brand was retired around 2003.
