The Joystick (ジョイスティック) SJ-300 and SJ-300M are two joysticks for the SG-1000. Despite the two different model numbers, the controllers are mostly identical, with the only major cosmetic difference being the button colours. The SJ-300 has red buttons, while the SJ-300M has blue ones. In addition, the SJ-300M has a compatibility switch on the bottom so that it can be used on computers such as the MSX or Sharp X1, which have a slightly different controller pinout than the SG-1000.

Both of these controllers exist as a sturdier alternative to the SJ-200, the SG-1000's default controller which was often criticised for being unresponsive. They also acted as a joystick alternative to the SJ-150 and SJ-152.
