    Hello everyone! Remember when the Famicom was celebrating its 30th anniversary? Remember that really cool little Bluetooth controller that was designed to honor the system? If not, get reading! But anyways, enough about that! The same team that designed the FC30 Bluetooth controller has announced a new handheld variant, this one modeled after the NES, called the NES30! Start celebrating!

    Nice for Nintendo fans but it is a waste for people that want to emulate > 8bit consoles properly. The sixaxis is where it's at for emulation on Android, iOS.

    The X/Y and L/R buttons mean it'll work for SNES, most Genesis, and some PSX games.

    I'm more interested in how the Wii controller emulation works. If it's just emulating a sideways remote, meh. If it works as a proper Classic Controller (minus the joysticks and triggers) I'd probably pick one up.

    Just received my FC30 order in the mail yesterday, though this is cool too :)

    FYI, the design is quite nice (for a NES formfactor device). I personally use it for retro emulation, though a PS3 controller would suffice just as well.

    yeah, I prefer this new design actually!
    the old one was beautiful, but it wasn't like my childhood Nintendo console.
    I had a NES with controllers like these, so this new model appeals to me more. :)

    The NES30 is a wireless Bluetooth controller that imitates the design of the original NES controller, and is compatible with all sorts of devices (iPhone, Android, Tablets, etc.).

    But NOT compatible with an actual NES or Famicom, rendering it completely useless (to me)! :D
    On a more serious note, wow this controller looks awesome. I want one! :D

    Seems they want to ride the nostalgia train rather then making the controller comfortable to use, I really hope they dont make an n64 controller next
