    making cool music no one gives a shit about
    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? =\

    New update from Amazon: Dongles and pads due November now, although I'm starting to wonder if it's the UK distributor making shit up, as Retrobit themselves haven't said a thing.

    It's definitely retrobit. They are clearly incompetent as they said they would release this stuff like two years ago. People ask them for information on twitter all the time and they never say anything concrete.
