    You may have noticed from the screens, that 8BitDo have decided to add 2 d-pads instead of any analogue sticks, to keep the controllers as portable as possible.

    The 8BitDo Lite releases October 30th and will cost around $25.

    Seems pretty nice tbh. I like the portable size. But the missing analogue sticks aren't acceptable for me. :(

    Looks very nice, but no analog sticks? Couldn't they have used analog sliders, if they wanted to make it sleek?

    Looks like it's designed for me - I hate analog controls :)

    Seems ideal for the new Zelda with its D-Padesque control scheme. Weird for sure, but cool nonetheless.

    dpads instead of analogs? That's skinda weird. They should use nubs like 3ds/psp I think

    I don't get it.
    D-pad instead of stick then buttons instead of D-pad. Looks like the worst idea ever to me. Nothing is what devs have programmed games for.
    Looks cute though.

    3DS Circle Pads would've been perfect imo.

    I hope they didn't ask the factory to make a ton of these - this is gonna be a flop for sure

    Who let the interns design a new controller?

    Because nobody in the history of ever has ever made a book stand, scroll stand, plate stand or merely lent something up against another object?
