Can I use this on a SNES?
This on Amazon right now for $59.99, I would pass on this price

I thought the point of a drop was to get better pricing through group buys. This is based off MSRP when they first came out. These are now already cheaper than MSRP at other retailers that offer free 2 day shipping. I am passing at the MD pricing, not worth it.
Izzyness
Yeah man, came here hoping to see a better deal that the one on Amazon. Pretty disappointing, would've jumped otherwise
So this definitely doesn't support either PS4 or XO?
qwertimus
nope, it’s not support both.
Isn't this exact same thing cheaper on Amazon?
Excellent moddable arcade stick, but the price is way too high. You could get it for $30 cheaper at certain points the past few weeks.

Care to share where?
I have two of these that I successfully swapped sticks and buttons. Soldering will be required for a stick change, buttons are dead easy and require no soldering. If anyone needs assistance navigating the stick mod, I'll do my best to help, but I take no responsibility

Do you know where I can find the parts I need to get linear switches? Not for this stick but for a Mayflash.
Dgordon
focus attack has what you need
I just wanted to express how much this thing rocks. So satisfied.
Anyone else been charged shipping then it is sent cod?
anyone having trouble connecting to their nintendo switch? I got it to work once, but haven't been able to get it to connect since.

You aren't the only one. I have to often reconnect it to the switch. I think the key is holding down the Start and Y button for only about 3 seconds when you are turning it on and the pressing the "pairing" button for a couple seconds until the light starts flashing blue. Then you have to use a different controller to "change grip". Even when I do this, it doesn't always work. I usually need to try it a few times to get the connection to work.
WPOTC
Hmm normally it should connect automatically after the first sync. Only first time you should hold start+Y
another thing is after Switch have update firmware, you should update the stick fw too. I think 4.2 broke it IIRC.
Tracking received! It is on its way!
Massdrop's description is incorrect regarding some features. According to a disclaimer on the 8bitdo page:
* nintendo switch compatibility is limited by the number of buttons and does not support HD rumble, s-axis motion control or amiibo scanning.
Hmm this or the Hori Switch Fight Stick?

You should go for HORI if you don’t modded the stick. Or if you want to save some bucks, 8bitdo can do fine job.

I was actually just wondering about this....when I saw this stick, my first thought was "omg thats really cool to offer the NES accessories!", but then my second was "ugh wait what kind of buttons does it use" hahaha
Do we know that the firmware supports iOS out of the box? I have the NES30 Pro controller and had to use the legacy firmware to use it on iOS. Their latest firmware was updated to support the Switch and in the process removed the iCade support.
Does anyone know if it will be possible to swap the buttons / stick out for sanwa / other legit arcade parts?
Boskr
Just by looking at the pictures, this is just a customized Mayflash f300. I have one personally and it's one of the best beginner sticks for its easy of customizability. I have Sanwa buttons and changed to an octo gate. I could also easily change the stick if I wanted.
Boskr
Yeah, if this is the same one on Amazon... https://www.amazon.com/8Bitdo-NES30-Arcade-Nintendo-Switch-Android/dp/B073ZNXFL6/ref=sr_1_18?ie=UTF8&qid=1502196475&sr=8-18&keywords=bluetooth+joystick Scroll down until you get the "from manufacturer" section.
If this had PS or XB support I'd almost consider it, but since it doesn't I'll pass.
So will this work with a rasberry pi 3 b and retropie?
KairosUngod
It will identify as a joystick under Linux, yes.
Will the joystick work on a retropie?
loki83jcg
This should give out Xinput, so probably.
No shipping to Mexico? Why? This was actually a very interesting item; oh well.
Any information on parts used in the stick? I know that some of the older 8bitdo sticks had used Sanwa parts. Also if it allows for the use of D Input does that mean it could also be used with a PS3/PS4 as a controller?
Howdy Everyone, This does in fact have Bluetooth 4.0. This has been added to the specs section along with other details. Cheers. @MetaldudeX @lemkeant
You had me at "Shoryuken" ...

My play style tends to gravitate towards Ken, Ryu, and Sagat myself. Will be fun when we finally all get a chance to play together in the future.
Saw somewhere online this was Bluetooth. Can anyone confirm?
MetaldudeX
It says Bluetooth 4.0 in the specs.
Boskr
they added that after me and someone else asked about it.
This looks to be based on a Mayflash F300 - a pretty decent cheap arcade stick. I have one and whilst the inards are certainly functional, it really shines if you replace the stick and buttons. Again, if this is indeed based on the Mayflash, it's really easy to open up and customize to your hearts content (I replaced the stick on mine straight away). It's built like a tank too, so very durable.
Curious if this has any wireless and is compatible with the NES 8bitdo receivers?
lemkeant
It says Bluetooth 4.0 in the specs, so yes.
This almost looks like an exact copy of the Mayflash f300 fightstick.
Very cool.
I might be interested if I knew what parts this is built with, like is it Hori, Sanwa, or garbage?

I'm not necessarily trying to be picky here. I just wanted to play Devil's advocate and mention that there are other sticks around this price point that are likely of similar quality. At the end of the day, I'm almost certainly not going to join this drop, because I don't have a Switch (at least not yet), and I have a TES+ for playing on PS4 and PC. I just felt it would be good to give perspective to people interested in the drop who may not know all about fightstick pricing.
Where is the bluetooth in that one?
Very tempting
Any info on parts? Hopefully sourced with legit stick components.

The question I came to ask ^^^ I doubt we're going to get something really great for $70, though. I'd love to be wrong.
sidmonk
same question. What we got inside this?
