6-button 3do controller (and ballz Q)

I noticed on the back of the box for Ballz, directors cut, a mention of an offer to get a special 6-button controller for use with the game.

My question is whether the 6-button controller actually has any more buttons than the standard controller. Because the standard controller has a L, X, and R buttons in addition to the ABC buttons, so my theory was that the 6-button controller just placed these buttons specially located above the ABC buttons for easier button-mashing action.

Or are there actually more buttons (i.e., genesis 3-button v.s. 6-button controllers)?

I was curious, because if Ballz really requires additional buttons to play it best, i'd rather wait to see if I can get the controllers before buying the game.

Also, while I'm on the subject of balls, I used to own Ballz on genesis many years ago. I had a cheat book I bought at Media Play (that alone dates this) with all the codes for playing all the bosses and all the moves and stuff. I pretty much played the game to death.

I was wondering if the 3do version of Ballz actually has anything different than the genesis version? Or is the "director's cut" just referencing the improved stage graphics?

Thanks,

JMT.

i have the 6 button controller and yes its 3 more buttons

Wrong.

6 Button control pads just remap the L, R and the P buttons onto the right controller area. The regular L, R, and P buttons may still be on the pad, but they just duplicate the buttons.
