I’m the first comment ?! Please send me a complimentary early model 🙂
I’ll review it on YouTube 😉
I just want to point out that the controllers shown on the box in the image aren’t the original controllers. Those were released in 1993. The original controllers only had 3 buttons, and we’re a bit bulkier.
The later six button controllers were chosen for their greater versatility. Naturally, if you want to be more authentic, you can still plug in the original three button wired controllers.
