Can also vouch for the Genesis USB controllers, they're just fantastic. Been playing tons of Genesis games and newer indie-platformer-type titles on them and they're soooooooo comfy. I never minded the d-pad on the Xbone controller but the positioning was starting to give me thumb cramps, so this is my heaven. I've never laid hands on the original 6-button controllers so I can't attest to their 1:1ness but otherwise they're extremely high-quality and yeah, the shoulder buttons click so satisfyingly.

Just ordered a Saturn pad. Arriving tomorrow so can't wait to try it out with Sonic 3 A.I.R and Streets of Rage Remake!

EDIT: It's here, and it's perfect!

My transparent USB Saturn pad arrived the other day, it works wonderfully and looks gorgeous.

Still waiting on bluetooth controllers from Retrobit 1.5 years later. :/

I think they said summer for the bluetooth ones? I'd definitely want the Saturn one, hopefully the analog sticks turn out good.

Last I looked on my Amazon preorder. the Bluetooth dongles for the consoles are dropping in August, but the actual pads aren't coming until freaking November!

Thanks for the info. We still can't pre-order them in the states. Hopefully they come out this year. I'm wanting to get rid of as many cords as I can (and I don't notice any katency).

I got my Saturn pad in about a week ago, and while I like the feel of it, I can't get the buttons mapped properly in either DInput or XInput mode in either Sonic Mania or Sonic 3 AIR. I could probably use x360ce, but I wish the ABC buttons were mapped to XAB on the 360 controller by default.

Are these really the default button mappings for the 8 button controllers? Do games that require just two buttons use X and A by default? =\
