Sega Genesis Control Pad complete in box! To me this always look like something “Batman” would us. What a great controller. It broke free from the boxy controllers in the consoles a generation before the Genesis. The curved bottom even gave it a nice grip =)
“Mega Drive controllers are notable for being one of the first control pads to be ergonomically designed for the user’s hands. Though improvements were made in the coming years, previous systems had cornered edges with their controllers, meaning they were often uncomfortable to hold after several hours of play. The Mega Drive controller is rounded, and has its buttons placed in easier to reach positions.”
I totally agree. I notice even the consoles of today such as Xbox 360, PS3 and even the Pro Wii U controller have that kind of style today. You can actually still buy this controller today. Click here to see prices but I am sure they are all used and not as in mint condition as the one I am lucky to own =)
Well at E3 2012 the Wii U black console and controller was out for display. It has that piano black look to it. So visually it looks great. The right right analog seems to be in a weird spot but I am sure it will work well and Nintendo has a reason for it. Will you be getting a Wii U? Nintendo doesn’t ever seem to do anything wrong with their hardcore fans. I am a fan of Nintendo but I am also a fan of everything. I don’t place heavy judgments on things till I actually get to play the games on it. It definitely looks interesting to me. But I probably won’t be picking this up at launch. I fell for that trick way to many times over. I’ll wait till they have something worth playing and that everyone is saying is a “must” have.
Oh btw I know I am more retro than new stuff but I do like to mix it up. I really do love all the new consoles as well so just as a disclaimer. ” I love all games so don’t judge me” =)
