Old Skool Aftermarket TG16/PCE controllers: Any good?
« on: February 26, 2020, 01:41:10 PM »
Hey everyone,

So I noted that a company called Old Skool had released some aftermarket TG16/PCE controllers. Does anyone know of these are actually good? Or do they feel significantly different than real PCE control pads?

I don't know if they're good or not, but the price seems decent for a new pad and with the adapter.  Hopefully someone here can give some first hand deets.

The price does seem nice, considering they give the adapter for free. However, I heard that their first batch of controllers were not compatible with the multi-tap due to a defect. So if you plan to pick these up, make sure you get the fixed version because the unfixed one is significantly worse off.

They're pretty good. Feel pretty much the same as OG

I prefer the Hyperkin ones. They have a longer controller cable so no extension needed.

I actually found a good review comparison for both controllers here:

Aside topic: Speaking of which, does anyone know what music is playing at 4:12 in the video? Is this from a game, or is it just a remix from someone?
