abunda_amazon_reviews Fantastic!!! Everything about it is fantastic. It works perfectly with our raspberry pi, it works perfectly with our super retrocade, and it works perfectly on our computers! It’s exactly the same as buying a brand new Sega controller today in a store. Bravo Retro-Bit!!!;;Reviewed in the United States on April 16, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;This is the controller you are looking for!;;Arcade Ren;;;One week review so far for the see-through blue USB gamepad --- This is an excellent controller for emulating games on PC and Android. Your mileage may vary depending on the emulator and how it handles USB controllers, but for most systems that can handle this type of button and d-pad layout, you can't do much better. The extra L & R buttons at the top are a welcome addition, and work well for GBA, GBC, SNES configurations as needed. The build quality and the extra long cord are solidly manufactured parts. This controller FEELS just like the original 2nd gen Sega Genesis/Mega Drive controllers (not the smaller little kid ones), and the d-pad is PRECISE. Fighting games and any version of Tetris you want to throw at it across platforms works exactly as you input it. I could not comprehend any lag that would affect my input and reactions. I will update when I have more Android, PC Steam and other console games tried out. The packaging that it comes in is high quality and makes you momentarily think they had a time machine and teleported the controller to your hands. Retro-Bit needs to build in Flash USB memory or a MicroSD card slot, so we can take some games with us no matter what computer we decide to play on. Edit Update: Still a great controller for PC game emulation. As with any controller, some games or emulators may not always cooperate, but when it does… it is perfect. Master System and Genesis games are great with it, in addition to NES, Atari 2600/7800, MSX/MSX2, and SNES (the added L & R buttons help) games are too!;;Reviewed in the United States on May 20, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;What hardcore SEGA fans have wanted for decades.;;Technically Literate;;;I was a Sega kid during the 16- and 32-bit days, and hold the original Genesis 6-button and Saturn controllers in high regard. With that has come some hiccups in post-Sega-console years, with controllers that attempt to ape the Sega "house style" of pad, only to come up short in many, if not all aspects. When Retro-bit was announced to be working with Sega to create new pads based on the original plans, I was skeptical at first. However, after receiving it, it very much is the 6-button pad on which I remember dumping hours upon hours. The D-pad and face buttons have the same crispness on action I remember, and the added shoulder buttons, while not quite as excellent as the Saturn's, are totally serviceable, and certainly a fair shake better than the "Mode" button on the original. The USB-A connector is attached to quite a long, sturdy cable, so there isn't much of a concern with it getting gnarled, which is very good. This is not really a complaint, considering the entire draw of this is accuracy to the original, but as it turns out, my hands have grown somewhat in the last 25 years, so the ergo is simultaneously good and not comfortable, if that makes any sense. Compatibility covers more or less any PC game or emulator you can throw at it, as Directinput and its more standardized current counterpart Xinput are both supported and can easily be switched by holding the Start button for a few seconds.

Of course, I cannot speak to longevity but this thing feels as solid as the original. It feels the same in the hands, and even the cord has a nice soft, yet heavy, feel to it. I got the blue color and it looks awesome.;;Reviewed in the United States on March 27, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;A great controller, feels like an original!;;NookColorDude;;;Ok, I'm going to try to explain this the best I can. When using this on Retropi it works great HOWEVER it would be nice to have a button combo to switch Z with L and C with R(this is done by holding select=Right and Left for 3 seconds). This way on the SNES emulator you can have the correct button layout for fighting games like Killer Instinct but when you load up say F-Zero you would still have the shoulder buttons for sharp turns. Ok, having that out of the way, yes, I took 3 stars off for that, the size is correct. The only thing this has over the Retroflag controller is it fits my hands. I guess in Japan they used a smaller 6 button controller and that is what Retroflag is modeling their's after and this one is the big manly sized US version. I wish I could take the PCB out of the Retroflag controller and fit it into this case but I can't, screw posts are slightly different. I think the Retroflag copies the screw posts of the original 6 button Genesis controller but this one varies a little bit. If you are playing on a PC this might not be a problem as changing the button layout between games is just at most a drop-down menu but on a retro pie it is a hassle. I don't use this on my retropi, I use the retro flag controller but use this on on my PC. I wish Retrobit would add this feature or Retroflag would make the US size. Both are great controllers and I'd probably take the same amount off of Retroflag for making theirs so small.;;Reviewed in the United States on May 16, 2019;;2.0 out of 5 stars;;Grown-up sized but lacking features of the Retroflag version.;;S.
