if you update the firmware it will now also work on the Nintendo Switch. i used it a bit with Zelda on my last trip. it works perfectly, though, its not as comfortable as the pro switch controller for long gaming sessions.
Anyone know how to set this up to work with android tv or apple tv? I'd like to use this as my remote for the android tv. sony remote is terrible.
Well I got the controller after quite a bit of wait. I use it as an Xbox 360 controller replacement. For what I want it to be, a small portable controller for some FFXIV here and there, it works pretty well. Ergonomics-wise, a full-sized Xbox controller would definitely be my preference, but that being said, the NES30 doesn't actually hurt to use and sits well in my hands. Yes, it's smaller, yes it doesn't have support for the rest of my fingers, but for reasons I can't explain, the controller sits well and didn't cause fatigue in the time I've used it for FFXIV. This might vary from game to game.
It's a pooper that the wait was unexpectedly long, especially for the first 150, but when it's all said and done, I got a pretty sweet looking controller that works for what I use it for. Also, if you want to use it as an Xbox 360 controller, be sure to power it up with power+R1, and be aware that the XInput mode only works in a wired connection. Doesn't bother me, but I know some might prefer the wireless option and will not be able to get it.

It works! Thank you so much.

Yeah, no problem! I know it was frustrating for me when I first tried to do it too haha.
is there any way to map the keys? I want to play PC games with it, but can't figure this out.
Most worthless piece of crap I've ever used. Doesn't work on windows like it claims and barely works on Android.
edit: Turn on with 360 mode using power+r1
No complaints about the hardware - it seems like a really nice controller. My only problem was that I couldn't get it working properly under Mac OS X. But I did a firmware upgrade to v1.69 (released recently) and now it works perfectly. http://8bitdo.com/nes30pro/Firmware.html
Yup - it doesn't hold a charge for long. 2-3 days of not being used after a full charge and it's dead. I don't know if this is just how they're made or a defect. For something that's meant to travel, this severely limits it's usefulness.

That's strange. Mine still had battery after arriving here and it lasted me a couple hours. Shipment takes a lot longer than 2-3 days too.
Anyhow I'm quite sure I was not with the first 150 but I must have been in the first batch somehow.
Controller itself is alright (not worth the 26€ customs charges lmao). The biggest issue is that it isn't always plug n play as well as the fact that the A and B button and the X and Y buttons swapped places compared to an XBOX controller. This is normal for SNES but the programs that use it mess up the layout because they are designed with xbox controllers in mind.

sounds like mine is a bit of a lemon, then. Too bad. It's a neat little device.
delivery date will be may 17th. i guess DHL is walking it to CA from NJ
When upgrading the firmware on these, the Windows tool seems to work better than the Mac OSX version of the tool. Just thought I'd share.
Finally got shipping info, but I'm a little apprehensive based on how many people are reporting problems with the devices. I gotta say, Massdrop, for this being my first drop, I'm thoroughly unimpressed. Hopefully the next one will be worth it.
Finally got tracking info!
All of the orders have been shipped and are now on the way to you! Once tracking is available, you will receive a confirmation email with tracking information. Please allow 24-48 hours for this information to update in the courier’s system.
If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (http://massdrop.com/helpcenter).
We're also on Instagram! We'd love to see photos of the drops you've received. Give us a follow @Massdrop and tag your pictures #massdrop. https://instagram.com/massdrop
Got this last week, but doesn't want to charge. Instructions states that the LEDs will light up green when charging, but every time I plug it in, the lights blink blue. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
was in the first 150, just got a ship confirmation email.
Finally got my shipping confirmation. Hopefully you guys will be getting yours soon, too.
Photo?
Got a meaningful response from support. I'll summarize the important parts: - My order is supposedly getting ready to be shipped. (I was literally the second person on this drop) - They are not sure why our orders were not shipped first as they should have. There was definitely some sort of problem. I'm hanging on to my theory of "re-opening the drop was a bad idea". - The issue was brought to the logistics team's attention to attempt to prevent the issue from happening again.

It was definitely the reopening. This was Massdrop's fumble. That being said I just want the controller to arrive if at all.
I have to agree, that this is a bit crazy.. I still haven't received any shipping info or anything. (I know the last update said the next update would be May 5th, tomorrow, but still..) If I would have been in a hurry, I would have ordered it from amazon for the 8$ price difference. But I figured I'd give this site a chance. So far, I'm not impressed. I won't totally write them off for one bad experience... but it definitely doesn't set the trust level very high.
As a note, to head off any critiques of complaining in the comments here about no communication - I've sent multiple emails to Massdrop asking about this order and I got one useless reply (Basically saying "We're working on shipping out the last batch of orders" and to check the comments for updates) and since then have gotten no further replies even though I was asking why people who were in the original 150 seem to have been bypassed. I wouldn't be commenting here if customer support would actually respond to support emails.

Well that's interesting timing, I got an email from massdrop a few hours ago saying my controller has just been shipped.

Me too! Sadly, it doesn't get here til the 10th...
To update my math from earlier, the total time from order to delivery for Amazon was 1 day, vs. 54 from Massdrop (assuming the package shows up when DHL says it will - I placed my order on 3/17). The total savings was $8.76, which means that you only save 16.5 cents per extra day of waiting.
In other words, you're seeing a 5,400% increase in shipping time for a 22.6% discount (this strikes me as bad value).
It's also particularly galling that the first folks in the drop seem to have been screwed the most. Oh well.
This might be the last time I get anything on Massdrop because customs are insanely stupid and crazy.
Let's see, total price of the item was 37.49, that is about €32.50. That includes shipping.
VAT is usually 21% here so that would add another €7. I'd be fine with that. It should be even less I believe because shipping is included here.
I somehow had to pay €11.61 which is a lot higher than €7. That would've been acceptable but sucky.
I also had to pay another €15 for "formalities"... Totalling €26.61 for a €32.50 item (including shipping!).
So basically I paid twice (if you exclude shipping) the amount for once the item.
I NEVER have this with DHL, but suddenly Massdrop decided to use USPS which is just insane... Until international shipping gets better or handled better by Massdrop, I'm out.
Or just, you know, use DHL :c
The CGI image of the product is a better colour IMHO. The actual product is more beige than gray. Nice and comfy. Very nostalgic
Anyone else have problems with the joystick alignment? Mine arrived a few days back and when I finally got around to opening it I found the left joystick is pointing slightly up and to the left.
The way it was packaged, the top cover of the box actually rested directly on the joystick, so it was pushed the whole time it was packed. Now I go to use it on the emulator and Mario has the palsy, he twitches forward and sometimes walks off ledges on his own.
It's a neat controller but it does me no good if it does the controlling instead of letting me...

Contact support for a replacement.
OMG I hate DHL. My order shipped on April 18th, and my estimated delivery May 9th. Wtf...
Edit: I guess I'm better of than most people here... I just read a couple pages of comments. I think I was in the first 150.
Another first-150'er checking in with no info from MD.
Our warehouse team is currently working on shipping the last batch of the orders. Based on current estimates the order should be fully shipped by the middle of this week. We will make sure to update the group once the group's complete order has been shipped.
Thank you for your patience. Expect an update from us on 5/5 or sooner if something comes up.

Man, still no confirmation or nothing here (I guess that means I was in the first 150? I actually don't really remember).
I don't mean to whine too much, but doesn't anyone else feel like 47 days is a bit long to wait for delivery in this day and age?
EDIT: Welp. I did it - I broke down and ordered a second controller from Amazon. It'll be here tomorrow. I wish I had done that 47 days ago.
EDIT 2: For those wondering, the Amazon controller cost an extra $8.76. If it arrives here tomorrow, it'll have, at minimum, a 47-day improvement on ship time over Massdrop. Which means that even with the price bump, you only pay a mere 18.6 cents per day saved!

Yeah seriously, what's going on here? I'm fine with waiting for things, but the constant fumbles with communication are ridiculous.
I'm sure I was one of the first 150 as well, and I haven't received any update since the 13th, which really does suck. I'm hoping my order of two gets here soon or that might just be that last thing I bought on mass drop.
It ticks me off that everyone other then the first 150 is getting their controllers, and we haven't received a word about it still. we probably wont recieve any compensation for this either.
I received a delivery confirmation but nothing arrived. I've contacted support but nothing as yet. Anyone else have this issue?
IT'S FINALLY HERE!
