    Retro-bit Sega Saturn controller

    Posted by Talal Alshatti on Mar 24th 2023

    Before I think it will not restock, but lucky me I grab one with the original price instead of swindlers who want to sell in $300.

    Retro-Bit wireless Controller for Saturn

    Posted by Kevin K on Mar 21st 2023

    Big fan of this controller. Works fantastic on the Saturn. No issues there. My one gripe is that I can`t seem to get it to work well on the Steam Deck. Not sure if its a firmware issue or not, but I went through tons of videos and searches trying to figure out how to get it to work with my Saturn Roms, and at the end of the day could not figure it out at all. The controller itself feels authentic and well put together.

    Feels like the original, but it has a critical flaw.

    Posted by Thomas Driscoll on Mar 7th 2023

    I feel a bit bad giving this three stars, but I feel that I need to review this product as it currently is and it currently has a pretty significant issue. To cut right to the chase, the controller does not work when the Action Replay 4M Plus loads. If you swap to a regular controller, you can advance the menus and then swap back to the wireless controller, it works fine. It`s annoying to have to swap controllers around when starting the system. I emailed Retrobit about this and they stated that it`s a known issue they`re looking into and will look into releasing a firmware update to fix it. It looks like both the controller and receiver is capable of receiving an update. If this does get fixed in the future I`ll try to remember to update this review.

    Beyond that issue the controller seems to work well. Everything feels nice and responsive. It feels very similar to my official wired remote.

    Some brief notes on the color. I got the white one to match my Japanese Saturn. There`s a lot of light bleed from the charging LED through the white plastic. It looks a bit cheap but you don`t see it while you`re using it. I`m curious if this isn`t a problem on the black variant. Also, despite the controller being white, the receiver is still black. Just something to note, it would have been nice if it matches the controller and console.

    I hope they fix the Action Replay Issue. It is a nice controller and for setups like mine where there`s a distance issue, it`s nearly essential.

    SEGA Saturn Wireless Controller

    Love the controller works great and feels awesome on the hands no input lag super easy to set up the only small annoying part was button mapping all the buttons to correspond to the game correctly. Other than works great for SEGA games! I never owned an original SEGA Saturn controller but I’d imagine it feel and work as great as this one here does. I recommend the controller to anyone who is looking to play SEGA games with an authentic 6 button layout and wirelessly!

    Awesome controller

    I have no complaints so far and outside of the weight difference it feels just like an original Saturn controller. No noticeable input lag either!

    What Sega Would Have Built In the 90s

    Posted by Todd Dietrich on Nov 15th 2021

    The build quality is excellent, and is what Sega themselves would have manufactured in the 90s had this kind of wireless technology existed.

    The controller does feel a bit light, but I think that is just because there is not a cable hanging off it like on a factory Saturn controller.

    Battery life is good and everything works exactly as it should. No noticeable input lag.

    Sega Saturn Wireless Controller

    Posted by Andrew Greico on Oct 7th 2021

    I purchased 2 of these on a great sale. They were well worth the price. I've never seen a controller come in a hard plastic case before.

    We are in the golden age of retro gaming with companies sprouting up with updated accessories to bring today's technological features to our old consoles. I am on a crusade to replace all of my wired controllers with wireless.

    These saturn controllers are very well made. 2.4 ghz receivers provide a preferred connection to bluetooth that some other companies utilize. The inclusion of USB receivers adds the ability to use with PC, or raspberry pi. Battery life is great and LiPo means lots of charging cycles.

    Button quality is not exactly the same as OEM controllers, but the versatility and cost outweigh this small drawback. It may just be the stiffness of the rubber membranes and the fact that I've forgotten what a fresh Saturn controller feels like.

    Must have for Saturn and emulation lovers

    Posted by Mark on Oct 7th 2021

    This pad comes with a usb and original Saturn wireless compatibility, and works flawlessly. What more can you really ask for in an updated but still true to retro form. Enthusiasts can’t go wrong with one of these bad boys in their collection. I’m pretty happy to have picked it up. It’s very responsive and build quality feels like as if it were the same as the original, but low latency wireless and rechargeable. If you want one and pull the trigger on it, I don’t think you will be upset, even if it sits for a bit on the shelf, you will be glad you had it when you pick it up again.
