Retro-Bit’s wireless classic controllers are pretty awesome

Classic gaming set-ups are great and all, but I wish those old consoles had the convenient wireless gamepads of today… 

Innex Inc has just announced that they’ll be distributing a very cool set of controllers made just for classic consoles from developer Retro-Bit. The pads look extremely similar to the controllers that you know and love with one big exception- they’re wireless.

Of course, that’s not the only difference. The pads, which are available for Nintendo legacy consoles as well as the Genesis (all work on the PC/Mac too), will also sport ‘Hypermode’ functionality. This special mode works like the old school ‘turbo’ function on pads from back in the day. It’s a nice touch that’s not only useful, but happily nostalgic as well.
