Krikzz (creator of the Everdrive) releases wireless Sega Genesis (Mega Drive) controllers!


#1

Yes I took this news from RetroRGB but I feel it warranted a thread of its own!

Definitely buying a couple of these. What does everyone think?


#2

I thought about making it’s own thread but I think I posted this last week in the Genesis / mega Drive thread. This looks pretty great. I love wireless controllers. Here is hoping that it’s really good.


#3

Wow pretty amazing, bit to much money for me to spend, but they are mighty nice… I would if I could for sure.


#4

This is one of those situations where I’d want to handle this before handing over so much dosh, see how close it is to an original six button.


#5

I’m going to sit back a little and see what the reviews say. It might make a good Black Friday purchase.


#6

Awesome. Thanks for the heads up. I have the IR OEM ones and they’re great. But this is nice to see.


#7

I ordered when they went up, still waiting for it to ship. Has anyone’s order shipped yet?


#8

Glad people are picking it up. Will be able to get good impressions before I buy. :3


#9

Apparently he’ll be selling these through Amazon as well so I’m gonna wait until those show up.


#10

I love the enthusiasm releasing a product like this, sorry but a hard no from me based on price. My og controllers are decent and the $8 Hyperkin one is good for the price. I’m not hating; just not my cup o tea at that price point.


#11

Mine shipped earlier. Can’t wait. As I mentioned in the other thread, I have other uses for this besides just Genesis, like MSX and the 2600, so it should be a pretty good value.


#12

The price is just too high on these. Its very cool that they’re being made, but that price, ouch!


#13

Yeah, that’s a lot of dough. Are real 6-buttons that expensive?


#14

A set of two OEM IR controllers and the receiver goes for about $100 on eBay.


#15

Ok… wireless… so that’s a solid comparison. I was thinking wired because wireless and 16-bit does not compute for me.


#16

I’m in once I hear some positive reviews. For that price, they should be without flaw.


#17

I got one and it works great. There was an issue with the d-pad being crooked, but it’s all been care of. Definitely worth the price for me.


#18

This is really good to hear, thanks. I’m seriously tempted now!


#19

I might end up getting the transparent one too if it’s ever on sale.

Black Friday? :stuck_out_tongue:
