Yes, there are plenty of controllers out there heading our way over the next few weeks, all of which are designed with serious gaming in mind. However, for those of you who are more into the retro gaming end of things, whether it be playing cool retro games or just checking out merchandise from back in the day, there is a controller that we’ve been keeping an eye on since we last reported on it back in February 2012. Well after the long wait the iCade 8-bitty controller is finally available for purchase.
This controller isn’t about having all the buttons that you would find on a normal controller these days, although it does come with all of them. Instead this Bluetooth controller is all about the retro gaming experience since the controller is designed after the old NES ones. It’s simple, small and looks pretty cool. For those of you interested in picking one of these up, you can do so finally over at ThinkGeek for a mere $29.99. Pair it up with an NES emulator and HDMI-out to your TV and you can relive your childhood.
