How faithful are these to the original controllers?

I'd say they were nearly identical, OP.

You've never seen a famicom controller, now have you?

But you're probably gonna go ahead and buy it anyway. Your loss.

Uh, how much experience do you have with reproduced controllers? I recently got a Buffalo USB SNES controller and it was pretty damn close to the original. Only difference is the weight.

I have a USB pad very similar to this made by Elecom and a Famicom to compare it with. Obviously it's got the extra X/Y buttons, auto, and clear, and it also has shoulder buttons that are flush with and blend into the rim near the bottom. The feel is similar; although the USB pad definitely weighs a little bit less. As for the buttons, start/select are slanted on the Elecom, more like SNES. The d-pad is a smidge smaller and buttons are springier with more travel. You can push the d-pad down in the middle. My pad even has the cord coming out of the side, and although I don't think it feels as nice to use as a real Famicom controller for 400 yen I'm not complaining. It's like they aimed to make a controller with the same feel that can also be used for SNES and other systems needing the extra buttons.

If you buy one, OP, check it's legit. I bought two from a Chinese seller and they have the same serial. Fake as shit.

To be fair, it still works the same.

They make bootlegs of the Buffalo pads?

Don't understand why anyone would opt for a famicom/nes controller , especially a repro. One of the most uncomfortable controllers ever

Drives me up the goddamn wall. I have a t-shirt with an NES pad on it, LICENSED BY NINTENDO, EVEN, and the GODDAMN BUTTONS ARE WRONG.

To be fair, the Famicom controller is INFINITELY more comfortable than the NES controller. Don't know what they were thinking giving that thing those corners.

people honestly bitch about this far too often. never in all my years have I had an issue with the nes controller corners.

Turbo buttons are for bitch ass niggas.

that's true.

as a sidenote, I like how on the super advantage you can press the slow button to power through all the bullshit when you lose on street fighter 2. I just got one and I fucking love that thing.

I got one some time ago, played shovel knight with it for the past few weeks. Seems fine to me.
