Looks the part, but it won't work. This is a USB connection for a PC, not the wii style connector you need for he mini NES.

this wouldn't work directly on a nes mini, it's usb connection rather than the proprietary port the nes uses.

Still a good price if you plan on running an emulator on your PC.

it was more of a warning to the OP and to prospective buyers to avoid disapointment rather than a commentary on the price, but yeah

I never quoted you?

Just saying it's not a bad price, thought that's the whole point of HUKD

I've been toying with the idea of building
my own raspberry pi NES so this deal is really singing to me. It'll end up being a waste of time and money but dammit I watched a video of a build and it's Christmas.

just clarifying matters. not trying to start an argument

Great price but 15 - 35 business days delivery.... don't rely for Christmas

I got one of these a few months back it was really unresponsive not sure if this is the same one

The official NES Classic ones are really cheap (if anywhere has them in stock).

It you have a NES Classic and are desperate for a 2nd controller for Christmas and can't find the official one in stock, your best bet would be to buy a Wii Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro as both are compatible.

The cheapest way, I think would be to get an unofficial ones on eBay for about £4.50 (delivered from UK)

CEX list one for £3.50 in white (only 1 in online stock) or £4 in black (2 in stock online) if you don't mind used - plus postage...

Need to change your discription, this is not compatible with the Mini Nes or any Nes Console, this is for PC Gaming.

For NES? It's a USB so it's neither for the Original or Mini.

would this be compatible with any Android devices like the Nexbox A95X?

Not sure it'll be built to last, but worth a punt at just over £2.50. I'm wondering that myself actually modmouse, I've been trying to get my niece a controller for her Nexbox A95X.

I think the controllers have to be Xbox 360 compatible, but not 100% sure.

This won't be compatible with the NES mini as many others have stated, but also these cheap retro controllers have a bad reputation for mushy buttons.
I would not recommend just buying any retro controller just for the price but to do some research. Some good brands that I've personally used are ibuffalo and 8bitdo and are highly recommended across the internet

lots of items are "worth a punt at that price" on gearbest that's mostly what the specialise in. You get exactly what you pay for.

Most plug and play controllers activate automatically so it will very likely.

You think wow £2.67 it's worth a punt. In reality they're really flimsy and you won't use it. I bought one of these, the controls are really loose and you give up playing after 5mins.

I had a snes look-a-like, that was it , a look-a-like, it played like stih, I just ended up using my xbox wired controller on PC and android tablet with usb2microusb cable.

not compatible with the NES Classic, and sadly, bad for emulation due to poor quality. As above, go for a Wii classic controller- they can only be used for player two on the NES mini, but a bonus of one of these is that the Home button acts as the reset switch.

Some Android boxes (like my Beelink Mini MXIII) don't recognise the Xbox 360 USB controllers - yet the Nexbox A95X does.
