Saw an article on it the other day. Looked neat, mostly for something like running emulators on my phone/tablet... But I'm not sure it's $40+import shipping wait time worth it to me...

Still, kinda tempted by it just because...

And here I was hoping that there'd be at least one post in the time it took me to get off work talking about this...

I DESIRE OPINIONS BEFORE I FRIVOLOUSLY SPEND MONEY ON THE 20TH CONTROLLER I SHALL ADD TO MY COLLECTION.

Seriously...I have so many controllers for specific purposes...what's one more? :S

The NES controller was by far the least ergonomic controller I've ever used. Even the Atari joysticks back in the day were more comfortable and less blister-inducing.

If your nostalgia is so bad that you need the original controller to get the most enjoyment out of a game, I'd say you're stuck in the past and need to get over your fear of change. =P Just use a comfortable, user-friendly gamepad for everything.
I feel a draft on my butt...

Honestly, at least for me, it would come down more to the feel rather than the layout/form factor. I haven't seen many controllers I could mash the buttons AND d-pad in the way the NES controller could be abused. The amount of times I set it flat on a table and just mashed the crap out of it's buttons back in the day was unreal. >_>

The fact that it can be used as a Wiimote is actually pretty interesting, assuming it would work with Dolphin. Still, I can never convince myself to go ahead with getting any of these specialty or novelty controllers.
The world gets weirder every day.

A NES controller is not comfortable to hold... I'll stick with my PS3 controller

I remember when I was a kid I got a 3rd party NES controller. I saved up my money to get one and it was awesome. I found a pic of it...

But can the PS3 D-pad withstand being rocked back and forth a hundred freaking times to complete a Hill Climb in Bigfoot Racing on the NES? I swear I'd destroy my controller if I tried that with much else....That, or they just weren't tactile enough to mash effectively like that.

Gah, NES games were terrible about hand-destroying stuff like that. SNES and N64 too.

I played Ninja Gaiden with it. Although, it might be as hard using it for the game you mentioned. I never heard of it. I'll have to look into it.
