    Is it me or is it now impossible to buy these, in a shop? All the scene kids now in the UK seem to be making belts out of them, so without buying one off ebay they are impossible to get! Anyone else notice this?

    NES controllers are pretty common, like my local Gamestation were selling them for 99p each last time I checked if my memory serves me correctly, though I havn't been there in a while.

    If you don't want to buy one on ebay erm keep an eye out at garage/car boot sales? It's where I pick up all my retro gaming stuff! [​IMG]

    I just got one of these, and I'm loving it! Feels really good to play games on the CPU with an original NES controller. Not trying to advertise or anything, but just thought I'd share.

    That is a seriously expensive controller! Id rather stick with using my wired 360 pad for windoze games.

    My local indie sells NES pads for a couple of quid. If you get stuck and havent got a gamestation near you then let me know and I could prob hook you up with some [​IMG]
