8Bitdo Controller and Arcade Stick Review

Intro

Last weekend, my buddies and I equipped ourselves with swords and mace and fought our way through the hordes of monsters as we ascended the tower to face the final boss. The 8Bitdo N30 Pro controllers and 8Bitdo N30 Arcade Stick allowed us to game wirelessly from the sofa. These controllers look great and performs up to expectations too.

 

The 8Bitdo Controllers

I am using 8Bitdo Bluetooth controllers and arcade stick. They look great (due to their retro looks) and 8Bitdo periodically releases firmware updates to iron out a few kinks here and there.

I have the following controllers:

  1. 8Bitdo N30 Pro Bluetooth Controller;
  2. 8Bitdo F30 Pro Bluetooth Controller; and
  3. 8Bitdo N30 Arcade Stick.

They have been upgraded to firmware version 4.10 which (supposedly) addresses the issue of lag over Bluetooth when used with other controllers. Yes, 8Bitdo releases firmware periodically to improve the performance of their controllers.
