gooseberry fool it actually plugs into an N64. :o Did they do one that looks more like an original controller?

Many people mod GameCube analogue sticks into N64 controllers now. My local indie sells them.

I've heard of a couple of issues with Goldeneye but apparently it works fine, so maybe they would do something similar to that (the GameCube stilll had the 8 point notches which I miss).

I think the main issue with GCN style analog sticks is the lack of travel compared to N64 ones. But Hori released a pad with GCN style stick during the N64’s lifetime that seems to rate pretty highly among third-party pads, so it might be viable.

Yes, that one also went up for sale recently and it looked decent.

Slander. I do nothing of the sort.

Weird controller?!? Surely they just misspelt wired...

With the Mini NES coming back later this year do you think we could get an announcement after that? Could make a great stocking filler.


Yes i'm glad thats coming back this year hopefully i can get one this time

I've been tempted to get one of those Retro Fighters controllers myself, but I'm worried about getting hit with a customs charge. :| It says on the website, "Please contact us if you are outside of U.S. and we’ll get you connected with one of our future retail partners.", so I might wait to see if it becomes available in the UK.

But yeah, I was really hoping that the N64 Mini would be announced at E3, but it wasn't to be... Quite disappointed. :(

I’m surprised they didn’t announce the N64 with the news it would have the following games:

it’s Smash 64 20 times

I'm wondering now if all the patents they filed were just so they could get Primark clothes made.
