Do you long for the days of the simple, elegantly designed gamepad controllers from Nintendo’s classic gaming systems?

Nintendo USB Controllers by Phreque

Perfect for playing emulated games the way they were meant to be played, you can buy custom-modded versions of the 8-bit NES and 16-bit SNES joypads, ready to use with your PC or Macintosh.

The fine folks over at have taken care of the hard part by adding a USB conversion module and cabling to the classic controllers so you can use them on any Windows XP/2000 or Mac OS computer.

The NES version sells for $33, while the SNES version will set you back $35. Keep in mind that these are used controllers which have been cleaned up and retrofitted, so they may have some minor cosmetic wear.
