Never bought from Massdrop before, but they have a pretty good deal on the 8BitDo NES30 or FC30 Pro controller for only $32.99, currently $42.98 on Amazon or 23% off the Amazon price.

Also includes free shipping to anywhere in the USA.

Reviews are pretty good on these as Nintendo Switch controllers. They accept Paypal too, in case you're worried about it being a scam website and not wanting to give them your CC info.

$26.79 at Newegg [newegg.com]



$29.99@Walmart [walmart.com]
Thats for the NES30, not the NES30 Pro. The NES30 Pro has analog sticks, along with more buttons so it will work well with modern games.

The NES30 Pro does work with the Nintendo Switch -- see here for compatibility:
http://www.8bitdo.com/nes30pro-fc30pro/ (scroll to about halfway down the page)

Here are two quick images of the NES30 versus the NES30 Pro:

It is cheaper on Walmart or Newegg than Amazon - but not the $32.99 price from Massdrop

The price for the NES30 Pro on Walmart is $37.99 - https://www.walmart.com/ip/Portab.../349120851
On Newegg - $36.49 - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Pr...-_-Product

Good deal! I was looking and didn't want to pay the amazon prices. Newegg and Walmart are a bit cheaper, but $5 less than each of them made me go for it.

As I understand it, Massdrop shipping can take a little while sometimes but I'm not in any rush.

You are correct. I noticed that directly after. I was jarred by the need to signup with a account to even see the price.

Price is not much of a drop, but these things never seem to drop either. Lowest I've seen was around $31. I've been hoping to pick up a pair for around 50 since I recieved my RetroPi for Christmas.

I love Massdrop, but you can get these delivered from Aliexpress in 2 weeks ePacket for $28 before Massdrop even ships them.

Thanks much hotrodss! The new SNES30 Pro also looks to have the trigger buttons lined up behind one another, as opposed to the NES30 Pro where they're left and right of each other. https://mobile.twitter.com/8bitdo...9359725568
