Stopped by my local Wal-Mart for groceries and found 3 NES classic systems on the shelves. I was lucky enough to to get one on the first run but never picked up the 2nd controller until today. Guess I waited long enough.   :applaud:

Stack of them at walmart and gamestop around here. Shelf of the controllers too. Donít seem to be moving.

The steam from the popculture hype train isnít driving them this time.

I guess you haven't heard the news.  The NES Classic, not the Switch, not the PS4, was the best selling console of June by a decent margin.  Nintendo finally got their supply chain figured out, but that doesn't mean there isn't demand.

Controllers interest me more than the console (which I own and haven't used since the week of purchase). I can mod them to be USB and have an authentic Nintendo-made NES controller for emulators.

Best Buy has both the systems and controllers in stock online.

You can get knock-offs for a little bit of nothing.... for around 15 bucks you could use the guts of ones of those, buy a nes classic gamepad have a brand new nes controller.

Good point.  I was thinking more of yanking the pcbs and cables from $1 controllers out of bins at a video game swap meet, but no reason not to use a knockoff.

I just wish they sold the snes controllers separately.... My gamepads are kinda janky after 30 years of wear.

IF you are talkiing the SNES mini controllers - if you contact Nintendo support they actually do have some they will sell you ( just tell them the one you have is not working and you were wondering if they could sell you a replacement ) They come without a box or anything since they do not sell them at retail but they keep them for warranty replacement etc. ( IIRC last I heard they were selling them for about $10 +/- )

I paid that price shipped from eBay for official ones. No need to support the knockoff market.
