I'm debating which has the bigger D-pad, Genesis or Saturn pad?

Every piece of Retro-bit hardware I've ever gotten has broken. The build quality of their stuff is terrible, and has the lifespan of a fruitfly. Ironically, TC, it was always the D-Pads on their stuff that broke first.

Yeah, I have a USB adapter for my SNES controller and it works great. I always am wary of "retro remakes" since they seem to last about 10-15% as long as the old controllers did.

I'm hoping since they're officially partnering with SEGA on this that the build qualities will actually be up to standard.

I really need a new Saturn USB fightpad (I've had my current SLS for 8 years now and the d-pad's been acting up occasionally) so if this is even close to the same build quality I'll be happy.

These controllers are compatible with Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android systems and can even be paired with older consoles using a separate dongle. A separate Bluetooth receiver will allow players to pair the controllers with the original Sega Genesis, Sega Mega Drive, Sega Saturn, and Sega Dreamcast consoles.

That's kind of cool... if it actually works. This should work with the Atari 2600 then and some vintage PCs. But I have a feeling the build quality just won't be there.

Would be really nice if these do actually work with the original Genesis. I'd love to finally have an official 6-button controller rather than the third party thing I owned.
