They just don’t make them like they used to. As time moves forward our gadgets feel less and less substantial in our hands. The quality just is not what it used to be. Which is why many gamers prefer to use the old controllers. They just feel better in your hands, they are more durable and some might even say more reliable. The problem is that those old controllers aren’t updated with the modern features that you need today.
That’s why 8BitDo has recently released a collection of DIY controller mod-kits that let you convert any classic game controller into a wireless setup. These controller mod-kits add Bluetooth wireless capability to the original NES, SNES, Super Famicom and Mega Drive controllers and you don’t even need to solder a thing.
Each of the mod-kits costs $20 and enables support for any console that supports Bluetooth. You know, the Nintendo Switch, Macs, Windows PCs and Raspberry Pi-based projects etc. So now you can do more with those old controllers. The kits come fully stocked with all the equipment that you need to make the upgrade, which and includes a lithium-ion battery. This is pretty darn cool because I love the old controllers.
