    Arrow Now you can play NES with a wireless controller [Eurogamer.net]

    Controller cables - everyone hates them. Thankfully, ever since the GameCube's trusty Wavebird, they have been going out of fashion.
    But what if you wanted to play your original NES with a wireless pad? Well, to answer that very question, now you can.
    Peripheral makers 8Bitdo and Analogue have developed the Retro Receiver, a Bluetooth dongle which plugs into any NES console. It can then communicate wirelessly to a range of controllers, and support up to 4-person multiplayer.

    I've had wireless controllers for my NES for like 10 years. It was like the one product Messiah got right. Well except the d-pad anyway.

    I have both their SNES and NES controllers, what were they thinking with those d-pads? Universally panned, I just dont get what they were going for.

    These new 8bitdo controllers seem cool but at $32 a pop + $20 a reciever, they have priced them out of my range for now.
    Bury me with my money......*dies*

    I didn't think wireless controllers were exactly new.

    (I doubt they worked as well in reality. )
