    Probably better to shell out for the pro if you like sticks or the recently released pro+ if you like sticks and handles/grips.

      I'll go ask Gearvita and see what they can come up with on that one perhaps? ;)

        Yes please, I've never seen the pro for under $50 and I couldn't forgo the sticks.

          Technical question:

          Bluetooth (both controller and headset) has few milliseconds delay.

          Doesn't that affect your game play?

      Gearvita came back with the price of $36.99 US for the Pro. What does everyone think?

      For the Pro+ they said they might have stock at the end of the month.

        That's roughly what they go for on eBay from a decent seller, 50AUD shipped would be a good deal, but wishful thinking, perhaps!

  •  

    I just want the 8bitdo wireless adapter, hopefully a deal comes out for that.

  •  

    I get how it started as a SNES clone controller (a very good one) and they probably got in trouble for matching the colour scheme of a real SNES controller so now they're different colours but I don't understand the logic of the pricier versions adding analog sticks, motion, L2 + R2 and modern grips - it's barely a SNES controller anymore and you'd probably be better served with the more compatible and more ergonomic XBOX One S controller.

    This controller is terrific for NES and SNES emulation though.

    •  

      Perhaps portability? Not sure…

    •  

      Nope, no trouble for having a similar colour scheme on a different item. The 2 tone purple scheme is based on the US version of the SNES.
      The fancier versions work well with Switch/Pi and so forth without need for an adapter from what I can tell.

    •  

      an Xbox One S controller is not as good for 2D platformers with the suboptimal d-pad placement, and if you get an 8bitdo controller with sticks instead of only serving that niche you've got something you can throw at someone to get an extra player into any number of games on the switch.

      beats the hell out of a single joycon…

    •  

      They didn't get in trouble, the newer SN30 PRO+ controllers use the SNES color scheme.
      These are inspired by the gameboy pocket.

  •  

    Good controllers, I haven't used them all just yet but I've bought one each for sega, nes, snes, n64 and counting.
