Third-Parties Have Been Fixing The Short Cords That Are On NES Classic Edition Controllers

One aspect of the NES Classic Edition that has caused some annoyance are the short cords that the controllers have. As a result, a third-party named 8bitdo has released a new version of its Retro Receiver, which is compatible with the NES Classic Edition. For getting the product, you get the Retro Receiver and 8bitdo’s “NES30” wireless controller. The latter looks just like an NES controller, but there’s 4 red buttons instead of 2. If that wasn’t enough, the Retro Receiver is Bluetooth-enabled, meaning you can use many other controllers for the device, including Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 controllers.

The product costs $39.99 and ships on December 16th.

    Kinda makes me wonder if it can be used as a normal classic controller for the WII allowing for PS3/PS4/WIIU controller on the original WII.

    1. 60 bucks for a PS4 controller is better than over a hundred for a brand new Gamepad. @.@ Let’s hope the controllers for Switch aren’t as pricey… But sadly, they probably will be…
