It’s really hard to become fully immersed into the retro gaming experience when using an iPad or Android tablet. Sure, the games look similar to how we remember them. The sound is top notch, too. The only problem is that touch just doesn’t give you that same nostalgic feeling.

The good news is that there are many great controllers to choose from that can enhance the retro experience and even take it to new heights. One such controller is the new iCade 8-Bitty, which is directly inspired by the design and shape of the old-school Nintendo NES control.

The 8-Bitty was announced at the beginning of 2012, but has been a no show- until now. The new control is shipping and can be bought for $30 from the ThinkGeek website. The control uses Bluetooth to make the connect and should work with most Android devices, the iPad and iPhone. It is worth noting that many similar controllers seem to start at around $50, so the value here is actually very good.

Whether playing Atari classics or using an emulator to check out your favorite older games, this is one of the best ways to make the experience feel like the real deal. Check out the ThinkGeek website for more details.
