So Japanes have it even worse with the controllers.

They should really start making normal USB controllers. I'm pretty sure they would sell more of them with all the people who want to have nintendo controllers for their PCs.

Who came up with the idea of 80cm cables? That's insane.

While I get it that they made them hard wired because that's how it was with the original Famicom.... 80cm (that's 2.6 feet) is absurdly short.

That's how they where at launch on the OG Famicom

I guess they're REALLY driving home the nostalgia accuracy, huh?

Yea I guess so. Which stinks cuz I think the Famicom has better games, but the NES has controllers that use the Wiimote port.

If this were Sony, they'd sell first party only extension cables for $100 each. But hey, at least the console itself is cheap!

Hm... wonder if it will work with our adaptor?

NA and JP have the same power adapters. Even then, it wouldn't matter for this, since it has a standard microUSB port for power (thus, can accept ANY USB power source).

And then audio/video is through HDMI, which is a global standard.
