This is for those that always hated that their screen was so much bigger than their controller.

Love that game. I'm looking forward to more levels.

If anyone is actually looking to buy this, you can add a $.99 Super Mario 3Dee candies to your cart, and apply coupon: kxkynfhv to get $5 off 30.

These are old games though. Is Nintendo still making a ton off of Super Mario Bros? It's not like they would be putting their best Wii U titles on the iPad (but maybe if their hardware fails to sell they'll have no other choice

It means money. They could re-release all the old top 8 and 16 bit titles and rake it in 99 cents at a time. (minus 30% of course)
Ok, let's just fill you in. Apple and Nintendo are similar. Apple tried the whole "hey lets just go ahead and license our great software to other companies- OOOPS we are nearly bankrupt" thing. So yeah no.

Jailbreak, Emu, 8-Bitty. AWESOME.

Currently I have a Gametel ($49) http://www.amazon.com/Gametel-Portab.../dp/B006L2HBXA and prefer it since it uses the same icade technology BUT has a clip that holds the iPhone in place for more of a psp type experience:

1. Jailbreak iPhone 4S
2. Download Snes9x Ex, GBA.emu, GBC.emu, NES.emu
3. Use bluetooth controller (Gametel or 8-bitty)
4. Play old school classics

The 8-bitty seems more geared towards an iPad that you would set down on a table while the Gametel is much better with your iPhone (since it holds your iPhone in place while your gaming).

'cause it ain't the same. It's a shame, since I love that controller. The placement of the buttons on this new one, not so much.





I'm sure I could get used to it with a few play sessions, but why mess with perfection?

Do you know if this works with all games? And how? What if a game has joy stick controls in it? Thanks.

I remember reading about a year ago that Nintendo's board was really pushing to port games to iOS and android. I think the DS just isn't grabbing the sales they want. I like the DS but a lot of people are in to consolidating gadgets right now.

The one nice thing about it being wireless, is that you don't have to worry about whether you'll need 30 pin or lightning connector.

Nice design

I like the Intellivision-inspired faux-wood around the case, can't get any more retro than that!

I'm not sure about the positions of the four main buttons, however. Was there a patent or something on the diamond configuration?

On the Nintendo licensing topic, I would die happy if they released some of the older pokemon gameboy games on iOS. Been playing through some on a DS Lite, but would much rather use my iPhone 5.

Yeah, but does it do Mega Man II and Mega Man X?

I'd rather buy a Bluetooth conversion box with Li-Ion battery for my SNES controller.
