  • The retro receiver is great concept, the support of multiple platform controllers is great, especially for those that have preference of a particular platforms pad for comfort such as the wii pro pad over the nes pad which can get quite uncomfortable when having a long gaming session. If they adapted this device for the famicom (utilizing the expansion port) that would be even better as the wired pad cables are very short, so wireless would be extremely beneficial.
