The top one looks like it has Genesis control ports & the other one looks like N64 control ports >.>;;

The ports in the top one just look like standard NES ports :P

Upon a closer inspection, I suppose it does. At a first glance it just made me think of these beauties

Onle one of those is actually a genesis port, apparently the other is some clone.. but still

Yeah I know. It also worked on other oldies back then like the Atari 2600, the 9-pin port was pretty common. I just couldn't see that the port did resemble a NES one upon a first glance at the picture, I haven't handled a NES controller in such a long time so the port doesn't exactly stand out to me :P

It would be very interesting if Nintendo did make those kind of prototypes. But I don't see where the cartridge would go.

For me they'll always be Amiga Joystick and Mouse Ports :wub:

Serial ports… I think all the computers with GUIs from that era used them for Input devices…
They carry different signals than a serial port, so while they're both DB9 connectors, you can't really compare them.


Which explains why Genesis controllers can't be used with a USB serial adaptor…

Exactly ;) IIRC, there's a way to build a cheap adapter using a parallel port, if your PC still has one.

My PCs all have parallel ports… But they are all too old to run most emulators decently… I know USB adapters exist… I just don't really need one at this point…

  • Jayro @ Jayro:
    Eventhough the New 3DS XL is more powerful, I still feel like the DS Lite was a more polished system. It's a real shame that it never got an XL variant keeping the GBA slot. You'd have to go on AliExpress and buy an ML shell to give a DS phat the unofficial "DS Lite" treatment, and that's the best we'll ever get I'm afraid.

    The phat model had amazingly loud speakers tho.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".

    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.
