We fixed the NES Classic's biggest problem
Right here is the Nintendo Classic NES, it goes for $60 if you can find it.
We love this thing, I mean, 30 great games, old school presentation, there's even save slots.
This thing is the gift to give this holiday season, but I got one major bone to pick.
And it's the controller wire.
It's absurdly short.
I mean, look at this.
This is it.
This is all you get.
I don't wanna sit three feet in front of my TV to play, and neither should you.
Thankfully, there are solutions, just not from Nintendo.
Third party manufacturer Nyko is selling two items that's going to fix this specific issue.
First, it's a no brainer.
It's this extension cord and it gives six feet of extension patch cable to the controller and that goes for ten bucks.
Then there's what you really want wireless.
Now this is called the Mini Boss from Nyko.
It is $20 And has a dongle that you plug into the unit, and a rechargeable battery inside, right here.
Quite honestly, I like the controller.
But, it does feel like there might a tiny bit of lag.
The D-pad though does feel a bit more sturdy.
Now, I'm not sure how long this battery gonna last inside, But there's not whole lot of complicated circuitry in here I would bet, so I can't see it being that much of an issue.
Finally if you really want something else, maybe you get yourself a longer HDMI cable.
That'll let you use the console from further away from the TV, and it might wind up being the easiest solution of all
