Yea I know it isn't a deal, but I wanted to share this with anyone having a hard time finding a second controller for the NES Classic:

https://www.amazon.c...uct_top?ie=UTF8

Out here in SoCal I have NEVER seen these out in the wild.  Plus it is a limit of 1 per customer so that helps.

ALSO, I am not worried about the negative reviews.  This is shipped and sold by Amazon so I don't think it is a 3rd party knockoff.

Is this one the officially liscensed by Nintendo because I was reading some of the reviews and they say it's the knock off.

Did the reviewers buy from Amazon or a 3rd party?  The problem with many reviewers is they mistake a review of the product with a review of the seller.  This is shipped and sold by Amazon so I'm 99% sure it's not a knockoff

It's super confusing. Some say it's third-party and others claim it to be legit Nintendo. Who knows. I jumped all over it for 10 bucks.

The negative reviews are from like 2016, so my guess is the shit sold out after the initial run, and Amazon suggested replacements, that people bought from third-party sellers, that were knockoffs.  That's the problem with reviews on products that are suggested.  Either way, I think these are legit, moreso because of the ship and sold from Amazon, and also because there is a time limit.

If this is bootleg, Amazon will take care of us no problem. But I feel its legit as its sold by Amazon themselves.

Are you sure? I can add a second order to cart but fail at checkout due to product limit per person

It got taken off the lightning deals now. I bought one when it was on it and couldn't add anymore. Now I can add it to my cart and then go to the cart and edit how many I want all the way to 10+.

Only issue I see is how the Fuck do you charge it without opening it up each time? Lol

8bitdo says this on the video on their site:

 

"You can recharge it just like normal controller. We designed a custom component that fits in your original controller's wired cable hole. Rechargeable batter right on the PCB. Includes a special cable with a USB plug on the end that allows you to recharge. Bringing the 90's to 2018."

 

Maybe put the special cable into the port that lights up that covers the hole the original wire came out of?

I image that is what the included usb cable is for.

FYI - It is cheaper to buy an original NES controller from gamestop and use 8bitdo's original NES controller mod kit

Yea but you would need to cut the shell to access the port.

They use the hole that the original cable went through.
