Oof, that D-Pad placement... wouldn't most people be getting this primarily for 2D games? Those are by in large the vast majority of games this thing can play, why the Xbox layout for the few 3D games?
Geez, I'm afraid I won't be getting this one, unfortunately. Playing SNES, GBA, NES, GB/C, PC Engine and Genesis with my thumb shoved down on the left side is just too uncomfortable, I won't be able to enjoy the games. What a disappointment.
I hope they eventually make a revision for us 8/16bit era fans.
