Are these any good? They're like 40 dollars each, so I want to make sure they're good before I go and buy them.
At first, I wanted to buy an SNES, but then I realized I wouldn't be able to afford the games. After that, it was an SFC, but once again, the games are too expensive (they're cheap in-store, but I don't live in Japan, unfortunately)
If they're not good, I guess I'll just get an SFC.
Thanks in advance.
SFC controllers are not 40 bucks, what are you talking about?
And the colored buttons are cool, but honestly I prefer the regular american controller. Why? Because the jap version has a cord that's like 1 foot long. So when I play my SFC, I have to either sit really close or pull the console out from under the TV stand.
It's a Wii gamepad.
I forgot to mention that. Sorry.
Oh, well that changes everything. You can probably purchase a SNES controller and a Wii adapter for it for cheaper. But honestly, I don't think there's a need. The classic controller is dirt cheap AFAIK and is basically a carbon copy of the SNES controller but with two analogue sticks on the bottom. I'd just go with that.
I wouldn't spend 40 bucks on a controller. I think I imported my SFC for around that price, with all the hookups and such. Maybe slightly more. After that, I bought an everdrive and a couple cheap SFC games (essentially the ones I wanted to play that the ED wasn't compatible with, like yoshi's island).
But yeah, I'd say just use the classic controller and leave it at that. Spending any more and you might as well just go down the rabbit hole of buying the actual system + games or whatever.
If you just want to emulate on wii, I'd suggest getting a regular SNES or SFC controller and a Gamecube-to-SNES adapter from Raphnet.
They run about $12 and it means you can plug straight into the console, rather than into the wiimote and still be on battery.
In the interest in anti-shilling, I will point out that I ordered two from the UK and I had to pay a shit ton of import ( an extra 50% of the order price) I wouldn't have had to if he'd sent them both separately.
I own one of those controllers for the Wii remote. I got mine for $35 loose in pretty great condition. Recommended it to a friend not to long ago and they're like 60+ on eBay.
But I did check amazon and they one or two for respectable prices not too long ago.
I love it, Wii remote gets great battery life and the official one is of superb quality.
Or just use a GameCube controller and buy the adapter for it. I'm assuming OP wants a controller to use with Wii by the sounds of it, so I'm not sure why he'd drop all that money on a SFC controller and gimp himself out of having analog sticks.
Also, >>2921173 you should just look into buying an EverDrive. My ex roomie had one for the Nintendo 64 and they truly are fucking amazing. You buy the EverDrive and just download and put whatever ROMs on it that you want and vol-ah. Instant and unlimited free games.
