Cheap... But fixable
on August 12, 2011
Please read the update below as well.
Well, the controller I received was not the one in the picture. The d-pad doesn't register well when I try to go up or left. I probably could fix it by opening the controller to beef up the contacts. If you are will to pay 5$ more, then buy the real controller used. You have a better chance of getting a good used controller than a good knock off. The biggest downside to this controller is that I could used that 5$ toward getting a real controller.
The buttons on this controller were decent and the plug fit well in the wii adapter I bought. I don't have a real genesis.
UPDATE. I fixed the d- pad problem with scotch tape. It was so simple to fix that a really can't complain. Still not the original but close enough... By the way if anyone was looking at getting this for the wii 4-in-1 retro adapter, here is a news flash. It DOESN'T work with 6 button controllers, so if that is the reason you are getting this, don't bother. And don't bother getting a first party six button either because it just doesn't work with that adapter. Only A, B, and C work with the retro 4-in-1 adapter, so find a 3 button controller, 1st party or not.
