A guy at my work has been building these retro consoles in to the original console controllers. All you need is a PC with usb to run them. Around 2000 nintendo games on one controller and 1250 sega games including unreleased. Have seen it in action and it is very cool just uses the PC to do the calculations everything else is run from the controller. PM me for more info

Sega - Megadrive, game gear Mega CD, 32x

Nintendo - SNES, Gameboy and NES.

If he was selling those I'd probably buy the SNES model.

I'd love those. He kind of strawberry floated up by using the 3 button mega drive controller but those 6 button ones are too small.

Meh, its not like much actually uses the 6 button controller outside of Street Fighter and the 3 button pad is far more iconic anyway.

So, essentially he's modded old controllers so they work on a PC and combined this with a flash drive loaded with emulators + roms?

Big question is how much is he planning to sell them for?

the hyperspin front end is gorgeous and has tons of skins. That's what this is using. I'd be worry of breaking a pad if it was just stored on there.
