I hate being this cynical but I'm really trying to see the point. 40 bucks?
When I first saw it I thought it looked like a load of wank, but then I thought in certain cases it might be worth it. I need a new 6 button megadrive controller and another saturn controller and I also don't have a 3d pad, in that case I could buy this instead of 3 seperate second hand pads. Then it's $40 vs around £80.
I suppose that is a very specific set of circumstances though.
Fair point. I have a box of pads for my Saturns from back in the day, I can't imagine buying more unless they were wireless or something different. Having said this, I realise from the photo that the analog stick is better positioned than the official 3d pad.
My point is that if you're going to bring new Saturn hardware to the table, I'm not sure a controller is the most exciting item.
I emailed them to find out if the analog for the Saturn is a real analog or just the Dpad. There is no way to turn off the analog for games that don't support it ( I know there are a few that does recognize the controller if the analog is enabled). The that answered my email didn't know if the analog was simulated or not. Does anyone know any game that uses the Dpad for one purpose and the analog for another, so I can ask them to test it?
