Game Port - Definition

A Game Port is an input/output connector to which you attach a Joystick or other game device to your computer. It is typically a 15-pin socket located either on the back of a PC or on the back of a sound card so equipped with one. Most gaming devices today are now being connected to a PC via the USB port. As a result, Microsoft has discontinued game port support with Windows Vista, so it is probable that Game Port manufacturers will cease to produce boards with this connector.
