I prefer the 8bitdo wireless Sega Genesis controller that is now available for pre-order for almost the same price.
these actually look quite good very interesting, glad I got my official Saturn USB pad back in time, those are truly the don.
Can see myself getting the saturn pad, but the one with analogue sticks is over £40!!

Thanks ordered, even though i still have boxed white jap ones
on my old mega drive i have a very big input lag with both controllers thats 1 or 2 seconds. would you say its the controllers or the console?

It does look more comfortable. These being wired are a bonus if the extra frame or so of latency bothers you though.
Shame they don't have a retro official Sega Saturn console to go with them with Panzer Dragoon Saga, Sega Rally, Daytona, Tomb Raider, Nights into dreams, Guardian heroes, Virtua Fighter 2, Enemy Zero, etc...
Sega had the best D-pads

I'm thinking its more likely something to do with the TV set you are using.

Emulation is a bit of a pain but I've been tinkering around with Yaba Sanshiro (android) on my Shield TV recently and a lot of stuff works pretty well. Eventually going to get round to ripping my entire collection of discs

Assuming that controller is as well made as these retrobit ones (made to the exact specs of the originals) then it's using the old style 3 button megadrive d-pad. The d-pad on the retrobit pads uses the far superior d-pad from the 6 button pad. The best d-pad i've ever seen for fighting games (rubberised and very flexible) although wireless is an obvious bonus.
Metal Jesus did a review
The chap reviewing them atDestructoid loved them!

True but I love their clicky pads.

Metal Jesus reviewed them and didn't have anything bad to say about them.

High praise for a reviewer who knows what the originals should feel and play like.
Thx
