Y’know, if they made one with a scroll wheel and a laser (or even optical) sensor, and the matching plastic mouse pad...

I would buy some.

Ditto for the PlayStation mouse.

8bitdo does have the NES mouse, but it's a bit of a comedic novelty :olol:

Yeah. Don’t tell anyone this, but personally 8bitdo products are all a bit of a novelty.
Overpriced crap taking advantage of misty eyed nostalgia and gamers ability to be idiots.

Knock off Nintendo at half the build quality and higher than Nintendo prices.

Ok.. so we put some joysticks on a SNES pad, we made it have connection issues, and a battery life worse than a sega game gear. That’ll be $90 please.

8bitdo products make Joycons seem like engineering marvels.

Wow...I have so many points to disagree with here, I don’t even where to begin. In fact, I’m not even going to try to change that opinion. 8bitdo has a few meme products, sure, but their Switch controllers and adapters are some of the best third party devices out there and priced far lower than any of Nintendo’s official offerings.

I've got a bunch of 8bitdo pads and they are all really good. Nice prices too.

I have a single 8bitdo dongle and it works great. A dude at work brought in his 8bitdo controller to show me and it felt great to hold, but I haven't used one properly.

I'm a simple man who loves 2D Metroid and Warioware games, so I'm okay with this E3 lineup.
