It's also hackable at this point, so it's worth it if you want one.  I own one, and I've been planning to do it, but I haven't gotten around to it.  

 

I did hack the AtGames Legends Flashback a few weeks ago, so I've been playing that one more.  :D/

Everyone needs to stop with these mini consoles. Nintendo is the only one people care about

What you talking about Willis?

I've picked up all the mini consoles so far. I'm glad they finally released a Genesis mini and it's up there with Nintendo in games and quality. The Genesis and Mega Drive mini's seem to be popular. I'll be picking up a Turbo Graphics 16 mini as well. The only disappointed mini has been the PlayStation.

Got one of these for Christmas, and also a $25 GameStop gift card, so I figured I'd buy one of the six-button controllers.

 

GameStop...doesn't seem to sell those online? And I can't check in-store stock? Cool.

The wired and wireless 2.4Ghz controllers for the mini from Retro-bit are great. Looks like GameStop is out of stock. Amazon has them for $18 and $30 at the moment. Although it probably doesn't help if you want to use that gift card.

As far as I know GS hasn’t restocked the controllers since launch. They really haven’t restocked the systems either as I bought the last one at my main store as a present on Nov. 24 & they never received any more.

I was looking at the retrobit wireless that also works with the regular Genesis, but I think I ended up going with the 8bitdo wireless.

I was also looking at the 8-bitdo as well but the reviews were just ok for the Genesis versions. They do make awesome wireless NES and Super Nintendo controllers. I have a few of them.

Yeah they are. I like that they include a USB and an original port wireless adapter in the box. They look and feel like original Sega Genesis controllers, the wired even more so.

I also picked up the Sega Saturn version for my Japanese Saturn which is identical to the original Japanese hardware. It's way more convenient then running a wire and extension. My cat keeps running into the cord.
