Nintendo has released high quality photos of the new N64 and SEGA Genesis controllers planned for the Switch Online service. The N64 controller has some extra buttons.
Pay up the money. Support Nintendo
Honestly WHO is the pigeon that’s buying this? The most overpriced garbage ever.. you can get a refurbished n64 with 2 controllers and all these games for no money.. Nintendo should be stopped, NOW
The same people that bought cardboard because it had the name Nintendo on it.
I don't know, but a Nintendo 64 with 2 controllers and all those games for no money sounds like a scam or an exhausting amount of free hugs.
I'm really curious about the N64's stick. If they are using the same tech as the original or if they changed it to something that isn't completely garbo. These days people complain about the low quality of the Switch analog stick (with reason). But it is a premium piece in comparison to what Nintendo offered in the N64.
I wonder if this thing will work with Mario Party Superstars. That could be a great way to find out if its components are just like the original controller.☠️
Ahhh, the good old days of picking up an N64 controller only to have the stick flopping from one side to the other like paper in the wind... It certainly didn't help when you had games that made you rotate the stick as fast as you could haha.
I still have all four original N64 pads, all working perfectly. Maybe you need to take better care of your stuff.
Nah, I'm good. Thanks but no thanks Nintendo keep your controllers. Emulation + all ROMS free FTW 😁 Not paying for your service either, even though I have a Switch.
No thanks I'm good.
Voting with my wallet... It's a no to all of the above. Games that are 20+ years old, drip fed, with an overpriced peripheral and have to pay more for the privilege? No thanks.
I wonder if the joystick for the N64 controller is built better if not then I hope it takes the current joystick parts off ebay and is easy to fix.
You think these are over priced? They sold a PokeBall controller with one stick for 50 bucks and that has no use for anything other than Let's Go and being an over glorified step counter. No point in complaining though, we're talking about people who bought cardboard to play tech demos, and pay full price for games that that should be 40 max. Once you stop buying into Nintendos bs trust me you'll realize they never sell anything worth what they ask
I think the Sega Genesis model should have been the 6-button model… for obvious reasons.
Japan’s getting that one.
Just buy the Retro-bit 6 button version. It works on Switch and is licensed by SEGA.
I swear during the presentation they said that some of these n64 games would have online multiplayer. If that’s true then sign me up.
Buy the Retro-bit 6 button Sega controller and N64 controller instead.
I'd rather 8BitDo make both controllers so I can use them on whatever I like and not pay through the ass for them (maybe the 8BitDo dongle will work with them). Looking at the pricing, that's about $70 AUD which isn't too bad, not great pricing, but not as awful (I think it could have been $20 AUD cheaper than that). I also suspect this is why we're not getting a Zelda Collection as they'll probably save those games for it's online streaming service.
