A good d-pad which works for the Nintendo Switch. Now, if SF Ultra weren't such a con...
£19.69 on ebay from China, takes a few weeks, but you do get the original 8bitdo logo, not the skinny one here. Will go for that

What do you mean? Isn't this one an 8Bitdo product?
These are brilliant, I use it with the amazon fire TV for the SNES and Genesis emulators.

Do you think the one on this deal is a fake then? The same seller has the same model for £35 but doesn't say Sterxy in the title - confused...

Sterxy could possible be a copy. The 8bitdo one should look like this 8bitdo.com/sne…c30

There's always a chance Nintendo will patch it out. I have a NES30 Pro anyway, which I've tested and it does work with Switch, but I'm not sure I'd buy one on the promise of it being Switch compatible.

Hmm....Fake or not I cannot decide.
I ordered and then cancelled it as it's coming from China anyway, no rush to order it as "a deal" and will see what you guys feedback. (I too prefer the look of the other printed logo)

The reviews are often aggregated across different suppliers which as meant to be the same product. Sadly this means the review you're reading doesn't necessarily mean it's the same item if one 3rd part supplier is selling fakes.

Starnge thing is some of the pics on Amazon description show the uppercase lettering, as per 8bitdo website, some not.
If it helps, I got mine on the same link as above from a seller called shop4fun, a bit more money but definitely genuine

I will put the blame on the internet. Still think it was a better name than megadrive.
I have the nes30 pro, its £30 (delivered tomorrow) but has thumbsticks and dual L and R buttons, fully emulates a 360 controller on PC, works great on android (inc gear vr) and works great with switch (more buttons so likely to work better with more games) Unless you will only play retro games I think the extra is well worth it (wish they made a sfc30 Pro)

If its fulfilled by Amazon how can it be coming from China?
Reminds me of the trusty Gravis Gamepad I used back in the day to own Quake players using keyboard and mouse.
Had a little screw in joystick that went into the D pad.

How was the lettering on yours? Is one genuine and one not?

All that means is it's being supplied to Amazon by a Shenzhen company for Amazon to distribute. That's no guarantee of how genuine it is. I'm now highly suspicious of Chinese rubbish having been bitten several times before, so I'd like to hear feedback from others that get theirs from this 5PLUSH seller first.

Mine is this one

Not sure, I don't see the one with the other text on the 8bitdo website so I would be dubious
